    'The extraordinary plans are being dreamed up by Harriet Harman, the Government’s equalities supremo and Gordon Brown’s deputy.
    The Mail on Sunday has learned that she wants to introduce rules to halt discrimination against people from ‘up North’ and other regions, and has instructed her Equalities Office to look at ‘diversity proposals’ to stop Londoners and other Southerners lording it over the rest of the country.'

    you would have perhaps been forgiven for thinking that as a country we have more important things to worry about right now...

    With Liabour going for a 'scorched earth policy' prior to the next election, making sure the treasury is empty for the incoming gubment, this is Harriden Hormone's input. Let's find as many ways to p!ss money up against the wall as we can without giving more money to defence.
  3. FANTASTIC . . . . . . .

    Oh, it's the Daily Mail :cry:
  4. Fuck moving back up north. It's grim up there and they're all fat and eat pies. I'm a converted southerner. :)

    oh of course - the mail always lies about stuff like this, doesnt it? and Labour never come out with any completely pish legislation thats had next to no thought put into it do they now?
  6. If this happens it will result in another horde of people enforcing crap legislation at public expense and improving the lot of nobody. Possibly even causing more harm than good.
  7. Does she mean like all the Members of the House from the South East?
  8. The mail as previous about lying about government failings.

    what, so they look better than they actually are?

    this government (if you can call it that, when the cabinet is mostly unelected and have no mandate from the electorate) could not look any worse, and it doesnt take anyone lying for that to remain the truth.

    why dont you go and find your friend Ashie, and try and work out what you're going to do with yourselves when you and your colleagues in the Party are utterly discredited at the next election - if and when your glorious leader grows a spine and calls one.
  11. You mean your now gay and stink. :?
  12. this is all part of labours plan to get some votes. expect a lot of "northern cuddling" for the next year or so. one minister quoted....

  13. Well I still drink bitter and take it up the..................... 8O
  14. It's strange that the more "Equality" Harperson inflicts on us, the more discriminated against and disenfranchised we all become.

    If she wants to have a level playing field for up North, widen the A1, build a high speed rail link, expand the airport facilities etc, in other words, create an infrastructure that would enable expansion of businesses, or how about creating British jobs for British workers?? Radical proposal I know.
