What do you do when you have a female racial minority employee with a great employment record at the BBC? You sack her, because she sounds ‘posh’.
This highlights the folly of the left’s ardent desire to groupthink (whatever happened to ‘I have a dream‘?). Black people are OK so long as they are left wing, but if they are somehow not proles (or lefties) then the left hates them.
This is racism (what would happen if a black person was sacked for sounding too ‘black’?).
I hope Ms Ahmed sues (not under silly discrimination legislation which would not apply here, presumably because it is OK to discriminate against posh people, but for the breach of an implied term of fair treatment) and makes a packet.
There was a case last year or the year before where the BBC was found liable for discrimination when its Scottish division refused to hire an English person solely on grounds of that person’s Englishness.
The BBC should be abolished.
