EHRC: All Women Shortlists Are Unlawful

The Equalities and Human Right’s Commission has ruled that All Women Shortlists are illegal. To very little attention, the EHRC today published guidance on the equalities legislation around which appointments to boards must be made. It says very clearly on page 10:

“We do not believe that it is lawful to address under-representation by longlisting or shortlisting only female candidates to the detriment of male candidates” 

Though the context was the private sector, it could not be clearer about the legality of the issue.

One rule for us, another for…

UPDATE: People who seem to know what they are talking about say there are special provisions for political parties (until 2030) which permit the use of all-women shortlists by registered political parties in relation to elections to government (see sections 104 and 105 of the Equality Act 2010).

    I know righties are slow readers but you should probably have read the whole thing first:

    “In order to reduce unequal representation, specific provisions in equality legislation permit (until 2030) the use of all-women shortlists by registered political parties in relation to electoral candidates for elections to the UK, European and Scottish parliaments, the Welsh Assembly and local government.
    Similar provisions would be needed to introduce all-women shortlists in other recruitment exercises. However, EU law permits all women shortlists for electoral candidates because such candidates fall outside the scope of employment and occupation in the relevant EU Directive. In contrast, appointment to company boards falls within the scope of employment and occupation. At this point, it is therefore unlikely that such a provision, applied to company board appointments, would be consistent with EU law. “

    I hate women representing the Labour Party, more so than any other political party. They are made up of self-serving, hypocritical, lying, back-stabbing, out-of-touch champagne socialists that engage in scaremongering tactics and smear campaigns to win votes. I hate the following Female Labour MPs:

    Jacqui Smith (expenses cheat).

    Yvette Cooper (expenses cheat, hypocrite and wife of Ed balls).

    Caroline Flint (another incompetent minister under Blair & Brown’s government and a spiteful, evil woman).

    Harriet Harman (gender baiting, PIE loving, man-hating ultra feminist, who seeks to divide strong families and communities and has done nothing to improve her constituency, gang/drug/crime-infested Peckham).

    Diane Abbott (race baiting, community destroying troll in crime infested Hackney, who could not hold down a marriage for more than 2 years).

    Seema Malhotra (Feltham & Heston MP, who covered up her double barreled name (Malhotra-Suma), and did not disclose her £3million London home in Chelsea. She’s also a member of the Fabien Society.

    Hazel Blears (another hypocritical expenses cheat, whose own constituency in Salford re-elected her. Stupid people).

    Shabana Mahmood (MP for Ladywood, Birmingham, a constituency known for having the highest single-parent families on welfare). Labour Council and their MPs have done nothing to improve Birmingham.

    I also hate the following: Emily Thornberry, Rachel Reeves, Yasmin Qureshi, Luciana Berger, Margaret Beckett & Gloria De Piero.

    Well – looking at some of the comments on this blog and elsewhere – many do share an admiration.

    The Conservative party itself, for example, is on their payroll.

    Many have been fooled by the Cheka in the past .

    Most do not realize what lays behind the mask. That is knowledge held more on the left, and those who open the history books – not the ones kept in schools.

    If F’arage still maintains that position now that would be news. He will be unable to comment as the EU itself needs to make a decision. On that he will perhaps be quite vocal.

    It is worth maintaining a certain level of respect if only to ensure that one is not lulled into a false sense of security that the opponent in this case is acting either irrationally, stupidly, or without hostile intent.

    It is better to strive for fairness. says:

    If a blind man is sitting an exam and in order for him to do so, he and his fellow students also sitting the exam have to be treated with inequality in order to give the blind guy a fair chance of passing the same exam. He is given a scribe and extra time and the other students are not. So is equality just a concept we strive towards and nothing to do with reality and the best we can truly hope for is fairness as opposed to equality? Methinks fairness is more achievable that the concept of equality. We tie ourselves up in knots when we chase after concepts such as equality as opposed to fairness.

    All ‘anything’ lists are nonsense and can lead to greater inequalities. It is just that Labour has labeled themselves as being champions for concepts such as equality and they fail to address inequalities in a rational or reasonable way and do in fact exacerbate the problem they are trying to solve. Maybe one day they will come down to earth and replace their unrealistic ideals for fairness.

    EuroTroll,

    As someone who works in the USA and in Russia (and India), I can assure you that you’re talking nonsense. Both nations have moved on from the 60’s, a period in which your thinking still seems to be embedded. Russia has moved from the left towards crony capitalism, while the US has reached more or less the same endpoint from a rather different origin.

    The Russians, Americans (and Indians) I work with are in general excellent people, with the same sort of interests. They want to earn enough to live on, send their kids to good schools – you know the drill. They are betrayed, however, by their politicians who, in both nations and of course in ours, display a very high frequency of sociopathy. Just as paedophiles work their way into positions where they have contact with kids, just so do high functioning sociopaths move into politics where they can gain power, privilege and money.

    For CHEKA read CIA; for Russian expansionism read US imperialism. At the top, these nations are mirror images of each other, although the US has better PR.

    You should also check your definition of terrorism.

    Vote UKIP.

    Fuckin nell, I never knew you would get away with saying nig nogs here. Lets see what other supposedly offensive terms we can get past the dharb loving moderators. Is swarthy still allowed? What about rubber lipped savages| C’mon people, lets tell these visitors to our shores what we really think. If we invent new ones too then the fucking fuzz can’t have us for hate crimes, say calling a golly w0g a dustface or suchlike, answers in the comments please.

    The people are only betrayed by their gullibility in buying the lies of others.

    The C!A are hardly Cheka. That period of R’ussian history is also way before the 1960’s – in fact the 1960’s post C’uba were surprisingly enlightened by comparison. Until R’ussia decided to have a crack at A’fghanistan.

    Vote UKIP :-D

    In answer to Guido’s hysterical chasing of that MP who dared to ‘offend’ the Israel lobby with a couple of tweets…

    Just came across this chap – a current Harvard Professor who gives a balanced and compelling perspective on why the Israel lobby is bad for the USA, bad for Israel and bad for Palestine.
    And by default, why the lobby is/will be bad for the UK.

    If you were too worried about criticising Israel for fear of being branded anti-semitic, [like we had been scared to call out uncontrolled immigration in the UK for fear of being branded racist], then check out the link below.

    Professor Walt also has speeches on Youtube, [search out moveoveraipac].
    Not a nutter, but a sensible, brave academic, whose research will resonate with the average person on the street who has probably been too wary about voicing their legitimate concerns about supporting Israel.

    The Commission are of course correct. Using discrimination to fight discrimination simply breeds more discrimination. That we have made it law to do so tells you everything you need to know about the political classes.

    “Human Right’s Commission has ruled that All Women Shortlists are illegal.”
    Fortuitously Dave, that other guy, and Ed probably have a prearranged contingency plan. They may now rush through a change of law, with MPs using Twitter. This will effectively frustrate any interference from that Government Over The Water. Just as it did, with any illegality related to the snooper’s charter.

    But it’s only one letter away from hideously white “Pusey” in disgracefully English Oxfordshire

    Actually the “two state” solution is already evolving : private enterprise has largely moved to the suburbs. IT industry is in the Thames Valley not Londinistan. It can’t afford to put everything on hold every summer while the natives get restless and burn and loot everything in sight.

    ‘ Shortlists ‘ are an offence to us little people of any gender.

    EU Directive EC a/34467895/2010

    Look it up.

    AAH, just realised that looking up might be consrtued as offensive to us little people too.

    Looking down may be deemed the same.

    You/We can’t win.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
