Tory Plan for Ethnic Count at FTSE Firms

Telegraph (London), January 29, 2013

David Cameron has reportedly told the Cabinet to develop policies to appeal to ethnic communities.

One idea would encourage Stock Exchange-listed companies to state how many ethnic minority workers they employ and how many have been recruited over the past year, the Times reported.

Conservative Cabinet ministers have been told that Mr Cameron’s modernising drive have not changed decades-old antipathy towards the party from ethnic minorities.

Alok Sharma, the Tory party vice-chairman and MP for Reading West, has been charged by Mr Cameron with providing ideas, he told the newspaper.

One idea would involve exerting similar pressure as the Government’s recommendation that at least a quarter of boards of FTSE 100 companies be made up of women by 2015.

Instead it would involve ethnic breakdowns at different levels of seniority, he said.

He told the newspaper: “You could also have some sort of voluntary code for listed companies to say, if you’ve taken on 10 people this year and you had 100 interviews and you had 1,000 people who applied, can we see the breakdown by gender and ethnic balance?”

Kris Hopkins, MP for Keighley and a leader of the 301 group of Tory MPs urging the party hierarchy to reach out to non-traditional Conservative voters, added that the party’s problem with ethnic minorities was still an issue.

  • “Non-traditional Conservative voters.”

    Who already have a party to vote for:


  • JackKrak

    Oh, yes – the people who came to Britain in large part due to numerous and generous government giveaways are now going support the party that is (kinda sorta maybe theoretically perhaps) against government giveaways.
    Yep, that’s what’s gonna happen……..

  • David Ashton

    Quotas based on the Cultural Marxist and “Liberal Democrat” list of “communities”

    • Veritas_lux_mea

      As an Englishman, which British political party do you support David? (if you don’t mind sharing)

      • David Ashton

        I can only vote in my North Norfolk constituency and there is no suitable candidate.

        The only party to which I have ever “belonged”, very briefly, was the Conservative Party when Norman Tebbit was my MP and I was able to join other local members in opposing immigration and multiculturalism, but I left when John Major took over. I sympathize with much of the UKIP and BNP platforms, but have reservations about complete withdrawal from Europe, for reasons I shall list only if requested. I have felt that it better to put forward ideas and facts, against communism and alien immigration, for general use during my life, than to add my one vote, what Chesterton called “a one-way ticket on a blocked line”. A family medical problem has limited my efforts for a long time, but I shall never give up.

        Engelman loves the Chinese, but I love England and Western Civilization.

        • Veritas_lux_mea

          You have reservations about withdrawing from the nation-destroying, Marxist-run, totalitarian EU? Please share. I’m sad to hear you aren’t making your voice heard through the ballot box. Don’t they have mail-in voting in Britain?

          • David Ashton

            1. I have more influence on opinion and events by commenting just on this US website than I could ever have with one vote at a polling station or by post every five years, even for a suitable candidate.
            2. Until an unusual family medical problem limited my time and funds, I was able, among other activities, to (1) assist biographers of Oswald Mosley and Enoch Powell with “race realist” material, (2) participate in the Foreign Affairs Research Institute, South Africa Society, the House of Lords Education Issues Group (opposing multiculturalism), etc., (3) organize an anti-immigration lobby called Majority Rights with some very distinguished persons but which lost its impact when its MPs lost their seats and I had to relocate from London.
            3. I have since contributed to the Salisbury Review, the Quarterly Review etc., plus letters to the press.
            4. I am working on a book about the systematic political, industrial, ethnic and social destruction of England, which will include a hostile exposure of the EU bureaucracy, its Marxian monitoring units, and the international migration/labor-cost problem.
            5. I believe the UK will have problems surviving as an overcrowded multiracial island in a world still dominated by international finance and Asian demographics.
            6. Our national sovereignty was being hollowed out before EU entry and left with superficial trappings, which are now also disappearing; the fault lies all along with the “British” political class, not with our related Saxon and Norman peoples.
            7. I believe in solidarity with white people, especially in our former Dominions, and in an altogether different form of European unity.
            8. The proposed, expensive all-constituency UKIP intervention at the next General Election may simply return a five-yearv Labour or Lab/Lib government, though I might reconsider backing UKIP locally to protest against both the establishment and our LibDem MP who lost my personal respect completely after his bone-headed “gay marriage” support.

            Hope this is enough, Moderator, to satisfy your pseudonymous enquirer, without totally irritating others.

        • Veritas_lux_mea

          I don’t mean to be pushy, but I am quite interested to hear your reasoning, as a cultural conservative, for Britain staying in the EU. That is, if you wouldn’t mind sharing?

  • cecilhenry

    This really is blatant genocide and ethnic displacement.

    Promoting non-whites against the interests of whites; destroying the right of whites to freedom of association, their own nations and control over their communities.

    Disgusting and contemptible. This is hatred.

  • Barrack Osama

    What is the endgame for these people? Every last human-shaped being from a third world country crammed into assorted white countries for SOME reason? Not once has the point of this ever been explained, yet somehow it’s become our main directive.

    • IstvanIN

      Every last human-shaped being from a third world country crammed into assorted white countries for SOME reason?
      Tiny white island countries at that!

    • David Ashton

      Surely to provide a Mr John Engelman with some welcome variety in his life.

  • The__Bobster

    Conservative Cabinet ministers have been told that Mr Cameron’s
    modernising drive have not changed decades-old antipathy towards the
    party from ethnic minorities.

    Ah, the UK’s Conservative Party is as stupid as ours.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    But I thought we were all the same. Oh yeah, white people evil, cause of all the problems of history.

    Of course at least half of history would never have been recorded or even happened if not for us blue eyed devils…

  • HadEnough

    “One idea would encourage Stock Exchange-listed companies to state how many ethnic minority workers they employ.”

    Remind me to sell every share I own of British corporate stock.

    • But you could get the all time high print if you wait until the “Diversity Funds” have to roll in.

  • SintiriNikos

    The party of the late Enoch Powell is the BNP or the UKIP, not this faux-con party run by Cameron who can’t beat Maggie Thatcher in an arm wrestle.

  • Ulick

    This certainly supports the argument that the Tories and Republicans are just fronts to feign an opposition to the Libersls more hardline multicultural, anti-white agenda; but secretly the Tories and Republicans are on board with the agenda passed down from above.

  • TeutonicKnight67

    I think any re-constitution of white society MUST begin with the removal of race-traitors from government. They should be dealt with SEVERELY! Let them shudder to think about what they have done to their own kind. Es kommt der tag!

  • bigone4u

    Brigitte Bardot speaks up for the French. Is there not one celebrity in Britain who is willing to condemn the influx of browns, blacks, and muzzies into the once great land. Now that I think about it, is there not one celebrity in America willing to condemn the despoiling of the USA.

  • Bill

    David Cameron simply needs to appeal to them to LEAVE and to let no more in. Anything less, and he’s a traitor to the realm

  • If this happens, the global center is either going to be NYC or Moscow.

    I wish I knew Russian.

  • rightrightright

    This is Stage 2. Stage 1 was Cameron’s nodding through of Labour’s Equalities Bill (now law) whereby an ethnic recruitment candidate must be given the job if his/her qualifications are deemed equal to those of an authentic British candidate. Equality of qualifications also covers equality of no qualifications, so goodbye to those starter jobs for school leavers.

    The Government reluctantly revealed that 800,000 social housing units have gone to immigrants over the last 7 or 8 years, leaving our own people either homeless (soldiers) or sleeping on floors in other people’s homes. Now, the gradual creeping theft of our jobs. It is dispossession, carefully planned and stealthily introduced.

    UKIP are the real Conservaive Party.
    Cameron’s crew are just a bunch of fakers and Blair-lites.
