Millionaire who bans 'coloured' people faces Prosecution

The equality watchdog has begun formal legal action against buy-to-let mogul Fergus Wilson after he told his letting agent to ban “coloured” tenants because they left curry smells in his properties.

It emerged in March that Wilson, who owns almost 1,000 homes across Ashford and Maidstone in Kent, emailed a local letting agency, Evolution, saying: “No coloured people because of the curry smell at the end of the tenancy.”

Good news methinks if true and a succesful prosecution hopefully fines him big style.

Re: Millionaire who bans 'coloured' people faces Prosecution

There are various dimensions to this. We have properties that we let out in the UK through an agent. they vet them but we give the final go ahead. The decision behind the latest couple we gave the green light to was probably that he was starting a career as a navy officer. Other people we may have said no to, but we would not have been foolish enough to advertise our criteria. That, to me is where the racist element comes in.

Re: Millionaire who bans 'coloured' people faces Prosecution

Could've saved himself a lot of trouble by just banning curry...........or would the curry cops then get involved?

Re: Millionaire who bans 'coloured' people faces Prosecution

Reminds me of the Curry chef who had a heart attack in his kitchen, the latest news from the hospital is that he is still in a Korma.

Re: Millionaire who bans 'coloured' people faces Prosecution

Whilst in New York we were looking for eateries , all we did was look out for the hordes of NY's finest , stuffing their necks.

Always a good recommendation.

I am old-fashioned enough to think that if it is your property,you can let it to who you like, if you have bad experience with one group or another, then avoid them, you know it makes sense!

The main point here though is to keep your opinions to yourself.

Like no blacks , no paki's , no wogs , no irish , no poofs , no gippo's or kikes , greek and turkish likewise , no disabled or lessie's , no muslims or Jehovah's

you could go on forever , depending on how deeply prejudiced you could bear to be.
