I have read the application form but can that be legal?

I really don't know, but there's one thing I am sure of: The Brussels Broadcasting Corporation is busting a gut to replace that "UK nationals" with "EU nationals" - all in the interests of national, cultural, and ethnic diversity, of course!

It's only a charity if you are a failed executive getting a £680K pay off (or maybe Graham Norton on £2.6M p/a). To the rest of us it's a television tax that has to be paid else we get a criminal record.

Mrs Orloff (who used to work in HR) tells me that the ad has probably been approved because the ethnic groups mentioned are under represented in the organisation. If they are, such ads are allowed so that the organisation can bring their equality stats up to proportionate levels. Doesn't mean it's right, of course...

Totally agree Monsta, but as Orloff's wife says it would have been passed as legal,still discimination though. Strange how things are considered to be ok and legal just look at the failed w***** oops bankers that failed but legally still got big bonnesses.

"muslim king"

 

No. In a supreme act of discrimination, I believe this is not permitted; nor can the Monarch be a Catholic.

I disagree strongly with the application from the original post; under-represented or not, the job should go to the best candidate, irrespective of the colour of their skin,

I agree with what you have said, any job should go to the best candidate, but under the silly rules of only certain people can apply for job then the result can only lead to possible failure and there are plenty of failures in this country but they get big rewards.

BBC bans white people from job - but workforce already reflects country's ethnic make-up

Quote

Figures show in 2016, 13.4 per cent of the Beeb’s workforce are from Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities.

This is actually above figures from the 2011 Census results, which show 13.1 per cent of the UK population are from Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities.

And the licence-fee funded corporation aim to go one step further and increase Black, Asian and ethnic minorities to 15 per cent in their workforce by 2020. 

But critics are questioning why the BBC is positively discriminating if they are already one of the “most ethnically representative employers in Britain”.

UKIP employment spokesman, Jane Collins MEP, said; “I didn't know the BBC had been put in charge of implementing 'positive' discrimination in the workplace.

"As far as I’m aware, it is still illegal in this country to refuse an interview or a job to anyone due to their background, skin colour or religion.

“This is a case of the BBC appointing itself as an arbiter of equality when the law requires them to provide equal opportunities for all.

...

Quote

Irwin Mitchell is the 20th largest law firm in the UK, which is currently fronting the ‘Don’t Quit, Do It’ campaign, which aims to highlight the ways in which events and activities can be made more accessible for disabled people. 

Mr Simjee said a white person could seek to challenge these restrictions by bringing in a direction claim to the Employment Tribunal.

He added: “If successful, the individual could be awarded damages for the loss of opportunity in being considered for the role, plus they might receive a payment for injury to feelings which can range from around £500 for minor incidents to over £30,000 for serious breaches.

“To avoid costly legal battles and reputational damage, most employers seeking to promote diversity in the workforce encourage applications from under-represented groups rather than excluding white applicants altogether.”

 

So... this will likely end up in a lot of chancers bringing legal actions against the BBC, who will then pour millions from the TV Tax into trying to defend the indefensible!  Meanwhile the overpaid BBC management structure won't blink an eye, as if they ever have to take the wrap they will walk into another media job with a huge pay-off for failure - again from our involuntary TV Tax!.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
