Unreliable workers unite!

According to this news item, a British business was told it could not advertise for “reliable” workers because to do so would discriminate against “unreliable” workers.

… recruitment agency boss Nicole Mamo was especially careful to ensure her advert for hospital workers did not offend on grounds of race, age or sexual orientation.

However, she hadn't reckoned on discriminating against a wholly different section of the community - the completely useless.

When she ran the ad past a job centre, she was told she couldn't ask for 'reliable' and 'hard-working' applicants because it could be offensive to unreliable people.

Can we be far from someone deeming unreliableness (if that’s a word) a medical condition with unreliable employees being eligible for long term disability? I think left the workforce too soon.

The ReformaTories response to voter feedback on prorogation?

Just ignore it and it will go away.

True to form, my totally useless Con MP, Scott Reid, deals with his email by not dealing with it. This is not the first message I’ve sent to the not-so-honourable member, but at least he read and then ignored all the others. This time he didn’t even open it. Do you suppose it might have had something to do with the Subject line?

Reid - not read
