Labour’s divisive language fails to embrace progressive phraseology


Yesterday the Civil Service finally acted on the advice of its Race Disparity Unit and banned the archaic acronym “BAMEacross government. In a gov.uk blog post, Mandarins explained that the sentence’s lack of precision meant it excluded certain minority groups and was not inclusive enough. Ethnic minorities or people from ethnic minorities” is much better…

While Guido is pleased to see the civil service devoting time and thought to such an important issue, he is less impressed with the Labor Party, which clearly does not care about making its members feel included or appreciate the dangers of using the wrong acronym. The party’s national executive committee is preparing to hold internal elections later this year for… BAME representatives. He also still has a whole section of his website explaining his “long story“to stand up for the BAME community – although this page also has a quote affirming”Labor is the party of equality“. A quote attributed to Dawn Butler and, yes, Jeremy Corbyn…

Curiously, the Civil Service blog post specifically mentions how BAME ignores “Gypsies, Roma and Travelers and “other white minority ethnic groups”“. I wonder what “other” minority ethnic groups they are talking about…
