It is a strange but telling tale, and although many of my readers may subscribe deeper motives for my highlighting it, it is pefectly relevant to Britain today.
You live in Rotherham, you want to call a reliable taxi company to order a taxi to take you, well, anywhere; and if you are especially nervous, or wish to avoid any possibility of associating with characters of, shall we say a less than preposessing character; you always demand a ‘local’ driver.
When asked for comment, a council official stated, probably through clenched teeth from sheer frustration, ” However, this appears to be a decision made by the company and there is currently nothing in the conditions of their license which state that they cannot operate such a policy, just as some firms choose to offer customers only female drivers.”
The reason for my posting is, quite simply this: this is where we are today; mainly because of the Social Engineering policies of the bloody Labour Government through the Blair years; and why a national newspaper runs a story where people ask to be provided with White drivers because they are deemed more trustworthy than their Pakistani Muslim colleagues.
I do so wonder why!
