SORRY, YOU'RE WHITE

I know I run the risk of being called “Racist”, yet again, but I couldn’t help noticing this report in the Manchester Evening News.
It’s a Job Fair but only for black and ethnic minorities!, I’m not joking, it’s true. Now forgive me but if that isn’t blatant pro-racism I don’t know what is. It is even more alarming, given the present economical crisis, where hundreds, if not, thousands are losing there jobs and livelihoods for a Council to offer jobs to only one section of society, that section being mainly foreigners, is bordering on insanity, don’t they realise the white population are also desperate for work?. Before I get too engrossed in this, imagine the outcry if it was a Job Fair for white people only???, I really do despair when I think of how Political Correctness as taken over our country and we, ourselves, are treated as second class citizens.
For those still in wonderment, here’s the link…….

Not much leaves me speechless theses days, but this did (well almost).

Cllr Oddy,
You claim most dramatically to have left the BNP yet you still peddle this rubbish. It is not illegal to have black and ethnic job fairs so why even mention it, it does not effect Colwyn Bay and so is not in the remit of the job that you are so handsomely paid for. Other than racism what was your point of mentioning it?.

Councillor John Oddy said...

Popepaul,
I did not say it was illegal although it does fall into a convenient gray area of the law and it is your choice as to whether it is “Rubbish” or not, I’m only telling it the way it is.
My point of raising the issue was to show that racism cuts both ways, personally I think this is one of the worse cases of pro-racism I have witnessed in a considerable time.
If you imagine yourself, as a white person, having just being made redundant from a company that was forced to close because of a recession brought on by a Labour Government, you go to a Labour sponsored Job Fair only to find it’s for black and ethnic minorities and not hard working white people, black and ethic minorities brought into this Country by this Labour Government’s absurd immigration policy do you not think you would be tadge pissed-off?, I know I would be!.
Incidentally for your information you do not have a portfolio within a Town Council, neither do we get paid.

Imagine if there were a Whites only job fair, the media would go mad. Double standards by any measure.

John,
I am a new member of the BNP and unfortunately never got the chance of meeting you although I have heard a lot about you and what you did in North Wales. The question I have to ask you is would you ever rejoin the BNP in your old position and stand as a candidate in local and national elections?.

Councillor John Oddy said...

Anon,
The short answer is “No”, my argument with the Party is one of local not National issues and I no longer have any confidence in the way Wales has and is being run.
Having said that I congratulate you on your membership, perhaps you yourself may consider standing as a candidate in the General and Local elections, I’m sure you would do as good, if not better, a job as I could.

John,
From what I have heard and seen I doubt it but thank you for your honesty. Good luck for the future.

This job fair seems like blatant racism to me but surely it must be a good thing to get more 'ethnics' out earning a wage and paying some tax back into the system.

Councillor John Oddy said...

Brumbob,
Sneaked over from the forum Bob?.
You are correct in your point about the Taxes but the issue is that it is unfair to offer limited job vacancies to only one section of society when all sections are desperate for work.
I can remember when I was in the Prison Service to attract ethnic minorities the Home Office lowered the standard of pass marks for them, one wanders if that is still the case?.
Whichever way we look at it, it is still tantamount to pro-racism and if put the other way, White Job Fair, would be illegal. That is the point, one rule for us and another for them.
