    I wonder how many white people with greater skills got passed over to allow the box to be ticked by employing her?

Inclusion, BBC style.
    Half way thro LofD was thinking the same about black/female police officers. Almost commented so to my wife but so inured am I to all this nonesense I just let it pass. After reading your post I did mention it to her and she had gone thro exactly the same process.

    What I don't get is why single out the BBC? It's rife! It's everywhere!

    My wife watched Bridgerton on Netflix their most watched show ever. It was set in Regency England all about the aristocracy, debutantes and society balls.

    King George III's wife Queen Charlotte was played by a black actress (sorry actor.) Now there was some vague rumours at the time she may have had some mixed race parentage going back a few generations but every image you can find of Queen Charlotte she was white. Most definitely white!

    The male lead was a Lord and he was black. There was a good smattering of other black actors amongst the cast. Really!? Was a good number of the British aristocracy black in 1800? If so then so much for lack of opportunity or diversity.

    New presenter of Mastermind Clive Myrie. Year ago I wouldn't have thought anything about it. Now I think 'He's only got the job because he is black.' Very sad.

    Best tv of the week on BBC 2 tonight 7.30 to 9 including Victoria Coren Mitchell who I used to dislike and is now my favourite question mistress. Am I allowed to label her so?

    We must be on the same wave length at this moment in time as only two minutes ago I said exactly the same to my wife. Don't get me wrong Clive Myrie is very good and competent but because of all this BLM etc. you question the reason why he was chosen, which I know is wrong. I said right at the start of this BLM campaigne that it would set back race relation years.
    As for tonight's programming, again you are spot on. 'Mastermind', 'Only Connect' and 'Unversity Challenge', best TV of the week. If you're wondering why we're not watching it now, it's because the phone has gone and we've had to put the TV on hold!

    Yes you are, definitely something of the ***y school teacher about her, bit of a hidden fox if I am allowed to say that these days...
