The BBC: Diverse!

Am I the only person who thinks it's hilarious that the BBC's Chief Diversity Inquisitor turns out to be the brother of a Guardian columnist? Imagine that:
'Diversity! Diversity! Diversity'

'What you mean we should hire Cousin Bob too'?
Apparently, 'diversity' is another of those words that doesn't mean what you'd think it means.

Of course, the real give-away is that Pat Younge - and hey, couldn't his job be done by a lesbian - not only feels comfortable advocating overtly racists selection criteria at the BBC, but that there's no one in the whole organisation that thinks this goofy scheme is worthy of comment.
