If there’s one issue likely to provoke verbal brawling in the newsroom it is whether or not women need special treatment to help them reach the top jobs in journalism.

But the use of quotas – enforcing rules to guaranteed women a minimum number of top jobs – is now established practice in many parts of the political and business world.

The latest stunt by Dutch right-wing populist Gert Wilders has sparked a new row over hate-speech in Europe and exposed a weakness bordering upon cowardice in government of the Netherlands.

The British press has found itself in the midst of an academic fracas over the impact of migration on jobs with some news outlets claiming a study carried out by the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has uncovered an empirical link between migration and employment. The report suggests that 23 British jobs are lost for every 100 immigrants from outside the European economic area, a finding that conflicts directly with another study published by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) on the same day.
