As this job is based in London and white British people make up less than 50% of the capital now surely they are now an ethnic minority?

Also if I advertised for a job and said "whites only" what would the social and media reaction be? My guess is I'd end up being prosecuted. Odd world....

And I just noticed... PESTON

What if I am white but "identify" as black? If I wear fake tan can I apply? What is "white"? Do they have some sort of dulux chart? Does this mean Jews can't apply?

It doesn't seem correct to me. It's an internship. Is that why it's possible?

I'd love an albino to apply. That would really mess the none white policy up.

So if a non-black, ie white, person applies and is refused on the colour of their skin, surely this is discrimination on a par with pre-war USA? It matters not a jot what the job description is, to differentiate on the grounds of skin colour is appalling.

Any contributors to this forum who consider themselves " an ethnic minority" and wish to comment?

This is the tip of the iceberg. I am constantly leaned on by HR to "diversify" my department. Gods honest truth. if I were born now I'd want to be asian or black. White is bad.

So what do those who brought us to this place have to say ? Taken it to its logical conclusion in 200 years time school children will be taught about a pale-skinned race that was once predominant but now sadly extinct.

So spake the dodo.

Anyway, as to your signature, why should anyone leave? Migrants have generally been successful here, they seem to like it, so why should they go? Running our NHS, picking our crops, waiting on us in cafes; the indigenous species isn't looking after itself.

Oooh, here comes the grammar police!

Dying is the present participle of die, i.e., to cease living.
If you are dieing something, you are cutting or stamping it with a die.

And, judging by your efforts, the English language as well.
