These PC non-jobs are becoming ten-a-penny nowadays. It’s as if industrial tribunals and equality legislation isn’t enough, public services have to take scarce resources (i.e. your money) and fund their own equality and diversity empires to poke, prod and intervene wherever they can. But you choose, what would you like to see your taxes go to in the NHS – doctors or diversity tsars?
