As a matter of course I check the sits vac columns (and have a large part of my 'Favourites' file devoted to agencies who might be friendly to my pension plan), and today I received a questionnaire in response to an application I sent off speculatively months ago which I thought might be interesting. I didn't fill it in, as it seemed to be more interested in my social attitudes and enthusiasm for 'diversity' than my experience and qualifications. Instead, I fired off a ballstoyougram; they don't need me or my possible contribution to their expertise in force protection. This attitude is a creeping and highly dangerous cancer, in my opinion. Unless you have a greater respect for every culture and practice outside of your own in the UK, you are judged to be a 'racist' or -phobist or something, and you're not allowed to hold a contrary opinion. It'll all end in tears. Thank God (Allah?) I live in Saudi. (I never thought I'd say that.)They don't bugger about like that. I'm starting to like the swine.
