    Well, I thought that was interesting… Two men one woman; two Irish, one Portuguese; and as it happens, all three of us from Catholic background..

    Not sure we came to any concrete conclusions other legislation carries dangers of concretising problems from one that may invite public institutions to ignore new and rising problems…

    Claudia argued that this means to egalitarian ends is in danger of missing the need to prioritise human respect over what we might call class retaliation?

    There’s a sense that the legislation though it cost individual Protestant applicants opportunities they might have expected to gain in pure terms of merit, the limited term set by Patten recognised the need to create time bound rather than infinite limitation.

    Also Matthew Bowler asked remotely from San Deigo in California what does ‘affirmative action’ mean in a US where it possible for a ‘brown’ person to become of the President of the United States.

    There’s the added question of who is to be ‘helped’ – and how – by legal statute in a country were most of the demographics suggest its online to become a white minority in the next generation or so?

    Can I say too that people are more than welcome to join the hangouts… This is not about talking heads. It’s relaxed, easy going and assumes just a little bit of seriousness about the subject under scrutiny..

    What we’re actually trying to do is create a little bit of space for what it is you want to talk about… So new ideas and new contributors are always welcome…
