And there I was thinking people might be slightly disappointed with the way things are working out in this country when an English person is not even allowed to apply for a job in England due to being English.
Sorry, but this story reeks of Daily Mail bull$hit. A pretty English girl with amazing tits gets turned down for a job because she's English...it's all too perfect a story. A gift for the Daily Mail, almost too good to be true.
The Race Relations Act does not allow positive discrimination or affirmative action - in other words, an employer cannot try to change the balance of the workforce by selecting someone mainly because she or he is from a particular racial group. This would be discrimination on racial grounds, and unlawful.
However, employers and others can take positive action to prevent discrimination, or to overcome past discrimination. Where over the previous twelve months no-one from a particular racial group, or only very few persons from that racial group, have been doing a certain type of work then it is lawful to offer training only for people from that racial group or to encourage people from that racial group to apply.
