JESSE Norman stepped aside or was sacked from his treasury position depending on which paper one reads.

But he claims this was for reasons of diversity within government.

One wonders how Lucy Frazer feels now having been appointed because she is a woman and not solely for her ability.

Surely it is time that we stopped adding descriptions relating to age, sex, ethnic origin, disability and preferred sexual description to all of us.

When it comes to politics I want the best person in the job with relevant experience, empathy and vision I don't care what they look like.

I presume Jesse will standby his decision and step aside from his seat in the next election on the basis that parliament is likely to be overfilled with privately educated boys next time around.

Perhaps the selection committee will conduct a blind selection process.
