Does it matter?

In almost all cases, no. But it may be relevant if, for example, it was a job as a waitress in a Chinese restaurant, or if it was a charity helping Syrian refugees (and experience of the role showed that they were more likely to “open up” to people from an African background).

And also - what kind of circles do you have to associate in to even have this advert brought to your attention? Is there some kind of alt right blog that tells you all what to be offended by on each particular day? Because you lot always seem to be well on the ball of these obscure issues.

Last week it was London Underground's advertising policy - this week it is British Transport Police's recruitment strategy. 

It'll be the coffee rota at the Department for Agriculture soon at this rate.

This advert has now been brought to your attention. Are you part of an alt right blog?

I assume Royal White is annoyed because despite his experience in the armed forces, he got turned down for a job in the BTP (and lost out to a woman and/or black person). 

Why would you assume I wanted a job for the BTP in London.

It was a tongue-in-cheek comment.

I've had a recruitment agency trying to get me to go work in a primary school..Positive discrimination in force here...

"Male teachers are massively under represented and you will get a lot of work from schools wanting male teachers"..

"Yes by I'm dyslexic and struggle with Spelling, "

"Ah it will be ok"...

 

I know that Primary PGCE places are hard to get on as there is an abundance of Women applying for places..

 

I'm a firm believer in best person for the job...

However, what's to say that they have tried to recruit "whoever", it hasn't worked so they are targeting other area's that have no previously applied..

As most criminals and also the Tories will tell you, the rise in crime has got nothing whatsoever to do with there being less Police.

The Policeman that covers Bolton is never short of work. Always does his 40 hours.

To be honest with you for a moment, I think one Policeman could probably cover all of England, Wales and some of Scotland as there is zero crime going on, anywhere.

What do you mean? What's your issue?

What he might mean is the same as me.  What does it matter what colour or religion, best man/woman for the job, whats the point of a education system and aiming for high grades if others are pushed up the list because they should come first because of their background?  Pathetic and discriminatory, its sickened me really

It sickened you? Really? This is an advertising campaign. Nobody has been offered any job. The applicants might be rubbish and get nowhere near the BTP.

I suspect usually the ones who's ire is raised by stuff like this isn't the best type of candidate fearful of losing out to a minority 'best', but mediocrities fearful of losing out to mediocre minorities.

Is it just me or is there quite clearly a white bloke in the advert?

He's ginger. So he's probably a bit touched.

Maybe nobody has been offered any job, but the wording is there for all to see what people theyre really after.  Yes it has sickened me, some people have focused on being a Police Officer through their education and unfortunate for them theyre not in the correct catagory to be one.

No they'll still get to be coppers. 

This ad is encouraging those outside the white man demographic to apply as well. 

Nothing saying that they'll get a job and whiteys won't. 

Paranoia is a fucker

I blame those adverts that popped up last summer encouraging darkies and p*kis to try their hand at driving dangerously...

They were just trying to get over the speed bumps without damaging their suspension.

As I was saying earlier on, they dont care about damaging their suspension. And if you slow right down as you approach a bump, and then accelerate over it, you dont damage it. If you notice they were doing more than 60 mph in a 30 mph zone, which is what I am seeing all the time. I occasionally see them doing around 70 down the street. They dont all do 60 over the bump, they slow down before them and accelerate over them, this doesnt damage the suspension. There you go.

Please can you explain their technique for going over speed bumps, I'm not sure you've explained it enough. Ta.
