Identity Politics: Activists and ‘Diversity Champions’ Big Winners in New Year Honours List

Prime Minister Theresa May has prioritised identity politics campaigners and activists promoting “diversity” in her first New Year honours list.

Anti-discrimination campaigning was laid out as a priority in the 2018 honours list by the Prime Minister, whose repeated pledges to abolish inequality of outcome have been branded “dangerous and divisive”.

Dawn Hill, chairman of the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, south London, was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for ‘services to culture’.

To mark 30 years of Black History Month this October, Hill’s organisation put on an exhibition at Downing Street purporting to show “over two thousand years of black history in Britain”.

Celebrating the occasion, Theresa May urged the country to “recognise the enormous contribution which African and African-Caribbean people have made to life in Britain.”

LGBT campaigners were also honoured, including Jane Owen from transgender organisation Sparkle.

The Very Reverend Professor Iain Torrance, meanwhile, will be given a knighthood for his work in “enabling the Church to perform same-sex marriages as well as paving the way for the institution to formally apologise to gay people”.

A range of police “champions of diversity” will also be honoured for their work promoting identity politics, including Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Craig Mackey, who will receive a knighthood.

The top officer’s key achievement was overseeing a “radical transformation of the [force’s] diversity approach”, according to Police Professional, which singled out his initiative to cut back the use of ‘stop and search’ for special praise.

Activists and campaign groups funded by globalist billionaire George Soros had condemned stop and search as “racist” because ethnic minorities were more likely to be targeted — although some unfashionable senior officers insisted it saved black lives.

(Following the large reduction in searches which resulted from Mackey’s efforts, crime statistics for England and Wales showed a 26 per cent rise in knife crime, with London reported to have become more dangerous than New York City.)

Another police figure to be honoured for services to diversity in the community was former Chief Inspector Norman Pascal, who has been appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

Pascal, who Police Professional reports as having spent most of his 30 years of service working for the Black Police Association, dedicated his last two years before retiring this year to helping Avon and Somerset Constabulary increase the proportion ethnic minority officers in its ranks.

The Twitter page for the force — which covers 98 per cent white Somerset, 95 per cent white South Gloucestershire, 95 per cent white Bath, and 92 per cent white Bristol — now has as its header an image in which four out of six of the featured officers are non-white.
