EU Gender Quotas?

Posted by rantingkraut on September 17, 2010

Viviane Reding, the EU ‘Justice’ commissioner threatens to require minimum quotas for the proportion of women in top business positions:

The target should be that by 2015 at least 30 percent of all supervisory board members should be women, and 40 percent by 2020 …” (source)

An odd target in a way, since English speaking countries, at least, tend not to have supervisory boards. It is also worth noting that supervisory boards have little to do with the day to day running of a business. They are an ideal target if you want to hand out favours without demanding competence.

Restraining Orders Without Conviction

Posted by rantingkraut on August 21, 2009

Yet another fence post: The telegraph calls these ‘restraining orders for violent partners’, yet the article makes it clear that no evidence, just an accusation of violence is needed:

Judges will now be able to approve an order following any offence and if they are acquitted but the court feels there remains sufficient evidence to require restraint.” (source)

If the court feels there is evidence! Who needs facts when you have emotions?
