Pale, Male and stale

Harriet Harman(left) and Hazel Blears

Those two poor sad bovines, Harriet Harman and Hazel Blears, both suffering from mad cow disease have shown what they think of democracy and the best person for the job.

Announcing that the government has set up yet another tax eating commission. This time it is one to encourage women councillors from the so called - ethnic minorities. Now the majority in many council wards.

Harman said:
"Traditionally people have seen being a councillor as a white middle class hobby for men.

"The 2.3 million black, Asian and ethnic minority women in the UK make a great contribution to our society and economy and we need them to be represented at every level of our democracy from magistrates and councillors in their local communities to MPs at Westminster."
As a white man, I find the statement that white male councillors do it for a hobby just a tad offensive. This may be true of those in the Labour Party but browsing through the Liars, Buggers and Thieves site, Labour Councillors also seem to be in it to line their pockets with rate payers money.

In the original release that has now been, surprise surprise, edited she also said that too many councillors were "Pale, male and stale". Although they have not yet edited the caption from under her image. So be quick and you might still view it.

The British National Party Councillors are far from Pale, Male and Stale. In fact they are the business, because unlike the Lib Lab Con Councillors they seek to serve others and not themselves.

As Cleavon Little's script read ...

"...Where am all de WHITE women at".

The 2.3 million black asian and ethnic minority women in the UK represent just 2.3% of the 60,776,238 total estimated population in July 2007.

Given that the male/female ratio at birth is about 1.06 to 1 I say there's a hell of a lot of WHITE women out there.

Why are they not encouraging some of THEM to come forward.

Are they afraid some of them might bring some common sense into politics ?

This passage i thought very apt.

Whites are currently the only racial group specifically denied the opportunity to defend their countries and heritage. If we assert our right to do so we are thus fighting for equality, not supremacy.

The “Nazi” accusations so carelessly thrown out these days are completely baseless in this context. The Nazis believed that whites, and blondes in particular, had the right to colonize or eradicate others. But the policy we follow today could be dubbed reversed Nazism since it is based on the assumption that whites should have fewer rights than others and can be colonized or culturally eradicated with impunity. I don’t see why I should either be a “Nazi” or embrace and celebrate my extinction. It’s a false choice.

A false choice given by a fascist government!
