As the news emerged this week that the European Union were having to abandon their hideously sexist gender quota targets, the news had emerged that " a parliamentary committee - in a resolution passed by 21 votes to 12, with 13 abstentions - called on the European Council to withdraw the candidacy of Luxembourg's Yves Mersch for the ECB executive board. It said his appointment would mean that the board would be all male up until 2018."
Yes that's right, not because he has not got the skill, talent or experience, its because he is a man.
In this warped anti-male world we live in, people like sexist Sharon Bowles MEP believes to ban a man from a position because he is a man is equality (she is a main opponent of Mersch and wrote a sexist diatribe here). It's worse of course that people like EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding who desperately wants quotas live off the backs of us who work for a living - like all of the 'equality' industry.
But what should Mr Mersch do? Should just shrug his shoulders and get on with it, or is he brave enough to sue for sexual discrimination. Perhaps his wife and any daughters (if he has any) should encourage him because the discrimination being done to him is supposedly for their benefit of them as women.
If he has any balls, he should sue, that's what he should do if he believes in equality.
