Want to be a Myth Buster? Another classic council non-job

#3
Summary

The post holder will be responsible for a Mythbusting Project. The overall goal of the project is to research Lancashire communities attitudes and responses to migrants and formulate and deliver a positive campaign to dispel negative myths and perceptions towards migrants. This work will be done in close partnership with all representatives of the Lancashire Community Cohesion Partnership and members of the communities where there are high concentrations of migrants.

Desirable Qualifications

Recognised PR/Marketing qualification, preferably at degree level.

Essential Experience

You must have substantial communications and marketing experience in the public, private or voluntary sectors. A proven use of qualitative and quantitative research to inform, create and deliver effective PR marketing campaigns.
No seriously, WhyTF should taxpayers money be used for the purpose of PR in favour of the prevailing PC orthodoxy?

In more honest times, this was just called propaganda.

Ok, I agree at first reading it sounds like a non-job (that was my view when first reading the job description)... But apparently (just did a quick google search) - this area has two of the worst areas for racial tension in the UK. So how else could they tackle it?

By telling the forriners to integrate and act like the locals instead of residents of Peshawar?


Just a thought, radical I know, but you never know, it just might work.

Doesn't somebody need to be employed to do that?

By identifying the reasons behind the tension rather than just dismissing it as "racism" and appointing some lackey to go around congratulating people on being black?

but this job is about trying to make the natives think that it is just fine and dandy to have the place turned into a minor Stan.

Nope, it just needs to be Government policy, no special allowances for forriners. Try walking into a Council Office in say France and asking for all the forms in Gujarati and see how far you get.

Why not just have a big sign saying 'fcuking act british or do one!' as they come off the banana Boat? That'd be cheaper then paying some kn0b to do this. And then, the definition of what constitutes British could vary from copper to copper, so you could get some amusing situations thus:

'YOU! Darky! What the devil do you think you're doing'
'Thah ova poliss-man say do this, bwana!'
'You're taking the fcuking p1ss michael boon my son, thats white man's air you're breathing etc.'

Fcuking class, kafka-esque immigrant-baiting...

I agree, but I thought it was about spending money on non-jobs.

If the money was instead used to employ somebody whose job was help immigrants learn about British culture, values, identity etc, I think people would still complain about non-jobs etc - although if there is a problem in the area, then maybe something needs to be done?

I'm just playing devils advocate by the way

No this is about telling the natives that just because someone 'talks funny' and looks a bit tanned doesn't mean that they have a bomb factory in their living room a a couple of white girls tied up in the basement. We arn't talking about very bright natives here - they are the same breed that fire-bombed a woman's house a few years back because they had seen her occupation listed as 'pediatrician'.

so you'll be stumping up the 25k pa to fund it then, if you think it's such a great use of money?

What is the damaged caused in the average race clash. For example, when the idiots who call themselves the English Defence League or whatever cause riots - do you think that maybe costs more than 25k?

How much a year is spent in the Lancashire on investigating/solving racially motivated crimes? Is the job still a waste of money if it saves money in these areas?

As a taxpayer I do. On issues like this you've got to think more widely than he simple cost of the job. How much money will you be saving the NHS in relation to treating racially aggravated assaults, or police overtime in investigating racially aggravated crime? If this guy prevents one medium-sized incident every couple of years he will pay for himself.

Actually that was Paulsgrove in Portsmouth, no Burnley in Lancashire.


The two places are easy to tell apart…



Paulsgrove






Burnley

Didn't the trouble break out when Unite Against Facism organised a counter-demonstration and large numbers of young Asian men began to fight not only with the EDL but also with the police?

Maybe (UAF are just as bad in my opinion), but didn't the EDL (who is made up of football holigans - or football casuals as they refer to themselves) organise the protest?

I thought they purposely went to certain areas to try and cause trouble, which is why (not sure on the exact details) that the mayor (or some such) congratulated his constituents for not rising to the bate when they turned up in his town?

If the locals there are so angry about immigration that they're throwing around petrol bombs and dishing out shoeings, then I doubt a Nulab apparatchik turning up and telling them not to be nasty is going to work. It's just another government department that doubtless has a set of performance targets to hit, and vast layers of management and administration and safeguarding authorities and so on.

Anyway, New Labour told us immigration was all good and would benefit the UK in every way. Doesn't seem to have worked out that way.
