The Equalities, Access and Inclusion team at Bristol City Council has been running various training courses for employees.
However, Mayor George Ferguson, his Cabinet and Deputy Mayor ‘Mutton’ Geoff Gollop have snootily said they “didn’t need this training” and have OPTED OUT of it.
An interesting attitude from an all- white, 70 per cent male Cabinet made up entirely of people from Bristol’s political establishment!
Presumably this is because they really do consider themselves torch-bearers for anti-racism, disabilities, anti-sexism etc – and think that BCC employees are the racists, sexists and the rest.
What will Hibaq Jama have to say about this after her recent ‘chat’ with Fergo?
