Cressida Dick, that aptly named police chief, asking Priti Patel to change the law so she can recruit ONLY BAME new police officers for the Met.

3% of the population black. 1.3% of police officers black.

Alcy. Understandably, older white guys in knackered northern towns especially, have a lot to beef about. That’s because the white working class have become the new blacks of the UK.
Economically and socially, you and BAME people have a lot in common. You’re marginalised, ignored, underfunded, unhealthy, under-achieving in schools, often in trouble with the law, and mostly state-dependent for benefits of one sort or another.
Many of the white British working class, especially in the north, have come to resemble what the Yanks disparage as ‘white trash’.
Naturally, the government want to avoid blame for this dreadful situation, so they stir up ancient prejudices, and you’re encouraged to find a scapegoat, and blame your social and economic bedfellows.
But look. Instead of saying “If only we didn’t have so many black people”, you should be saying “If only we didn’t have such a right-wing government which has decimated our pubic services, let the markets rip, let Covid rip, ignored the north, and is corrupt and rotten to its core!”
It’s amazing, the con-trick which has been perpetuated on the British people in recent years. It really has been like mass hypnosis, as people were encouraged to worry about bendy bananas and vacuum cleaner regulations as much as the non-existent threat of invasion by 50,000 Turks, and I’m suprised you can’t be as clear sighted about all this as you are over the failings of club management.
Oh, and re. the police, London is 40% BAME, but the Met police only 15.4% BAME, hence the recruitment drive.
