David Lammy suggested Sir Martin Moore-Bick, a retired Court of Appeal judge, had “never” visited a tower block housing estate and urged him to spend a night on the 20th floor of one over the coming days.
He said it was a “shame” that a female or an ethnic minority judge had not been selected to lead the inquiry.
Racist and sexist. The idea that people should be selected and treated on merit is just crumbling under the onslaught of identity politics. Very PC. It’s going tribal. Lammy is saying the inquiry should be led by someone more in the tribe of the peple who live in the tower block — understandably so, now that society has fragmented into so many tribes.
Flashback: This agrees with the late Lee Kwan Yew of Singapore, something of a professional expert in the matter, who once said:
In multiracial societies, you don’t vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.
This didn’t used to be relevant in Western politics, because the West was overwhelmingly white and Christian. But now with the PC elite importing non-whites and Muslims as quickly as possible, and demonizing Christians, it has all changed. This means that the old politics of arguing about liberty, rights, and the appropriate degree of socialism are fading away, being replaced by a new politics of race and religion. Well, new to the West that is; it’s been predominant in much of the second and third worlds for ages.
