ordered to take ‘diversity training’ all because she saw it another way. pc sucks!

Here we are again with the gollywog thing, but yet another outrageous bit of political correctness. 

When things get to this point, can anyone, anywhere still believe this place has a future?

Say you disagree with a pc position, and get yourself ordered to take diversity training.

Diversity .... it used to be known as integration.  Well actually, Forced integration.  But I guess diversity sounds so soft and so reasonable.

Well it isn’t either.  Here’s a case of a woman who says something is not racist and acts on that belief as a city councillor, and because a few ppl with a personal interest due to them being from minorities and so they get to say what is and isn’t racist, she has to take training. What total stupidity. What BS!

What’s up next?  How about anyone who denies gorebal warming being ordered to take some silly arsed course in tree hugging.  If that ever does come to pass, it will most likely establish its roots here in the UK.

A Conservative councillor is to undergo diversity training after offending ethnic minorities with her claim that golliwogs are ‘nostalgic, not racist’.

Cllr Dawn Barnett was found guilty of bringing Brighton and Hove City Council into disrepute with her remarks.

In August, Cllr Barnett said she thought golliwogs were ‘nostalgic, not racist’.

And she dismissed complaints against a city homestore selling golliwog placemats as ‘political correctness gone too far’.

However, a panel of three fellow councillors cleared the 72-year-old of failing to treat others with respect and breaching the Equalities Act.

The board - sitting in a closed hearing on Thursday - also recommended that all councillors should undergo diversity training in the future.

Her comments provoked four ‘separate but similar’ complaints from three people and the council’s Black and Minority Ethnic Workers’ Forum.

One complainant asked for an apology from Cllr Barnett while another said they wished to see her expelled from the council.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Barnett said the issue should never have progressed to a hearing and was a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Yesterday’s hearing - lasting more than five-and-a-half hours - was also attended by a number of senior council staff.

They included a monitoring officer, head of complaints, and head of democratic services.

A council report on the proceedings will not be made available to the public until early next week.

Cllr Barnett, of the Hangleton and Knoll ward, said: ‘They threw out the two most serious charges but said I was guilty of breaching the code of conduct.

‘I am pleased they have let me off on the other two serious charges but very disappointed they have judged I broke the code of conduct.

‘I don’t think it should have got this far, it was a waste of taxpayers’ money and officers’ time.

‘I apologised to anyone who was upset by my comments and that should have been the end of it.

‘I understand the reasons why they had it behind closed doors but there were a lot of upset people outside the meeting that were angry it wasn’t held in public.’

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman said the incident highlighted the ‘need for training and awareness raising among all councillors on equalities issues’.

This will form part of member development in the future, she added.

the stink of political correctness
