Honours system devalued for political correctness
Sunday, 12 July 2009 07:12

Whitehall departments and local authorities have been instructed to put forward more women and people for ethnic minorities, specifically non-whites, for honours.

In particular they have been told to produce 55% women lists.

This is political interference in a system that is supposed to be based on merit, it means that people who don't really deserve an honour from the Queen are going to get an honour just because they are female or black or Chinese. This is not acceptable.

Labour has systematically gone about destroying family life over the past 12 years, now they want to honour people for entirely the wrong reasons, skin colour and sex is not an appropriate way to select people who get honours. It devalues the honour that goes to people who really deserve recognition.
