A report outlining a quota scheme is set to go before MEPs and may soon be adopted by the European Parliament.The idea of forcing a candidate on the electorate is not of course foreign to the UK, Blair, Brown and Cameron have all used the power of their office to enforce all women shortlists on constituency parties after all. So don't be too surprised in the future if all women, becomes, all muslim, all afro-Caribbean, all gypsy etc. There will be a choice of course, just a choice from one group and that's all the democracy we'll be allowed.
If it becomes law, all the political parties in the UK will have to impose female gypsy candidates on the electorate and get them into Parliament.
The scheme is also aimed at using quotas to force gypsy civil servants and councillors on the British public.
The revelations about the contents of European Parliament’s Empowerment Of Romani Women report provoked outrage yesterday.
The problems might of course arise if the candidates are rejected by the electorate, one wonders what the EU will do then... nothing nice I suspect. Perhaps they'll insist on gypsy candidates representing all parties standing in a constituency... just to make it fair of course.
Then of course they'll wonder at just why their popularity is nosediving amongst the populace they purport to
Politicians, particularly in the EU simply do not have a clue as to what ordinary people want.
Mostly it's for the EU to leave us the hell alone.
