UK Government: "Here's some more taxpayer cash to tell us how awful we are":
Parliament has paid Challenge Consultancy £7,000 to design a course on ‘unconscious bias’ for MPs. In total the company, which has also trained BBC staff, has raked in nearly £800,000 from Parliament for conduct lessons in what one MP last night called ‘an absurd waste of taxpayers’ money’.
An outline of the training leaked to The Mail on Sunday says MPs will be schooled on words they should avoid and woke-friendly history as part of the training.
How successful have they been elsewhere?
The firm boasted that previous clients who received similar training include ‘people managers at the BBC’, Bafta and Oscar judges.
If Boris lacks the balls to kick this into touch, I'm sure Cummings doesn't. What gives?
