Tokenism and quotas

It's a wonder that the EU is actually loved by some, though it would appear to be becoming a rather exclusive club mostly of politicians in the UK. Mostly they are hated because they meddle, they interfere in things they don't really understand and promote them from an agenda that's foreign to how the UK does things although the leftards seem to have adopted such an agenda wholesale... which ought to sound warning bells for anyone with any common sense.
A report outlining a quota scheme is set to go before MEPs and may soon be adopted by the European Parliament.
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 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.
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 represent rule.
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.

Politicians and all those in positions of influence in the lives of the population at large - do not care what ordinary people want. They are only concerned about what they can take, and maintaining the power to continue taking.

Only the EU gravy train riders love the EU, and I'll wager they have hedged their 'bets' for when it goes tits up.
