‘The LSE can pay its diversity director £120,000 a year, but can’t pay its cooks and security guards a living wage. That’s disgusting.’

        Diversify?

        Seriously, I think the job entails making sure preferential treatment is given to non-white non-British people.

        In the name of ‘equality’.

    Those manual labour types are a bit too diverse. Diversity Director only relates to chai latte vs rooibos tea.
