Discussion in 'Brixton' started by Lee Japser, Jan 11, 2017.
Have you heard ‘Not Welcome (Donald Trump Mega Mix)’ by Lee Jasper on #SoundCloud? #np
very catchy.......is this getting a commercial release ?
Another Honey Glazing hit here:
Two weeks after the ascendancy to ancestorship of former central Brixton resident, Darcus Howe, and one week after the anniversary of the Brixton Riots, here is an example:
Sounds like a mirror image of the normal leaving to get a senior job in Securicor (or even the Church of England) so disciplinary action "has to be halted".
Trying to work this one out. I take it that the Met want to stop officers up for sack from defending themselves using the Equalities Act. If the Met get this other government bodies will use this as a precedent?
Basically someone defending themselves will not be able to argue that discrimination on race or gender is connected to the Met trying to sack them? That the Met will not have to prove that discrimination plays no part in this?
This thus weakens the range of the Equality Act. With Brexit looming the Equality Act is the only way to defend ones self as , now "we have our borders back" there will be no recourse to EU human rights legislation? I did think the European Court of Human Rights was separate from the EU? So not necessarily affected by Brexit?
Seems to me that if there is Equality Act it should not be allowed to have get out clause of Judicial Immunity. If the Met is so sure it does not discriminate it shouldn't be afraid of it being using in dismissal cases.
Can you explain more the background Lee Japser ?
I've looked at this
Black Activists Rising Against Cuts. (BARAC)
But feel I'm guessing as not expert on the Equalities Act.
IMHO the authorities are trying to rule out equalities issues being cited in disciplinary cases, as you suggest. Maybe Lee Japser will confirm.
Having been through an ET case revolving around disability issues, I note that the English/American common law system dictates that the parties take positions which may well involve lying through their teeth and allege breeches of law or neglect of duty in a quadrille around potential compensation.
I am wondering what happens in Europe, where the situation is more inquisitorial. Do European police officers have tribunals, and how do they operate?
As he appears to otherwise engaged, try:

Within that article is the following paragraph, which seems to indicate not much change in perception on the side of Unison and their members on one side and Lambeth Council on the other side in 15 years:
This is not the first time Lambeth council has been accused of institutional racism. In 2003, an eight-month investigation concluded that a key part of the south London authority, which was then Labour-led, had a culture of discrimination, bullying, victimisation, sexual harassment and unprofessional conduct.
Lambeth Chief Executive Andrew Travers admits that racism exists within the Council
