'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.

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.

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.

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....

“We don’t care if the commentators or the economists turn against us,” said one minister. “This is all about shoring up the base in the northern heart-lands, which we lost in the European elections. We don’t want or need them to understand the nuance of the argument. We just want them to hate the Tories again.

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.

Good idea, why don't we go all the way and move the seat of Goverment to some portacabins in Macclesfield, I'm sure that all the politico's will endorse this and will happily buy their second homes up there saving us poor taxpayers a fortune, Westminster could be turned into exclusive hotel/theme park and would earn the country a bit of cash too.

No, No, NO!

There's enough anti-discrimination shi'ite out there as it is!
Enforced equality is not equality, it's nothing less than a cheap charitable political gimmick. The reason London is "disproportionately" emphasised in these national committee quango type things, is because aside from being the base of 50 of the UK's largest 100 companies, and the base of 100 of Europe's 500 largest, it also contains more than a sixth of the UK population, and amongst other things, is the capital of the UK.
Stop this anti discrimination shite, and let's be sensible about it, shall we?

And before you ask, I was born and live in Sheffield. So there.
