How will this pan out?

Positive action for job recruitment to be enshrined in law (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/labour/3546305/Positive-action-for-job-recruitment-to-be-enshrined-in-law.html)

The move allows firms to use "positive action" when recruiting staff to posts which are under-represented by women or ethnic minorities.

Positive action differs from the more controversial positive discrimination because it allows bosses to use race or gender as selection criteria only if candidates are otherwise of equal merit.Really...

Should be fun.

Surely bosses (ie. real world bosses, not those morons in the public service) will just do what bosses have always done...select the one with the big chest puppies!

I'm a white, non-religious, hetrosexual, married male with a job and no criminal record. Everything is my fault....I guess I should go top myself through sheer guilt and shame.

It will only happen in public sector, private companies will offer the job to the best person for the job (after all, it's all about money right)..

No doubt when it doesn't happen properly in the public sector the gay/ethnic/criminal/illegal immigrant will get a seven figure sum for injury to their feelings for being overlooked for that top public office position.
