No Offence, But ...

I've been saying this for a long time. Can I have a nice job at the Home Office or Kent University please ?

Marian FitzGerald, a senior researcher on race issues for the Home Office for 11 years, said Labour chose to bury mounting concern over the inter-ethnic tension building in UK cities.

Instead, the government adopted the Seventies model of racist behaviour, which meant all racism involved the white community and that which did not was 'taboo'. In doing so, claimed FitzGerald, the government missed an opportunity to tackle racial tension between black and Asian communities.
