Simply asking Meenu a question if she is cool with being discriminated against because of her gender/ethnicity. Candidate A (M) candidate B (F)- both equal, but employer chooses candidate A purely for the reason that he is a man, if that is okay?
Of course I'm not saying that if people should be automatically entitled a job based on sex/ethnicity, for the record I'm against stuff like all women short lists. Just wanted to ask Meenu a question.

By being a fence sitting centrist of course.
The left-right paradigm is no longer relevant and it has strangled our political system. Centrism offers pragmatism and a willingness to consider all arguments, in order to achieve the best outcome for the country. Ideology has run its course in our political system - neither left or right offer a coherent argument on the future direction of Britain as the goals of both sides are eroded by endless bickering that strangles our democracy.
I don't think centrism can be defined as 'fence-sitting' in the current era of British politics.

To be fair it's an odd situation with Nick resigning and it being unclear if the by election was going ahead and who would be running it so I can see why people weren't prepared.
There was a possibility regarding this, and there should have been a thought at the back of someone's mind.
