It's what Wales voted for, part 7

Peter Black writes:

"UKIP nominated Gareth Bennett, the AM who during the Assembly elections suggested that the litter problem in Cardiff was caused by Eastern European immigrants, to be a member of the committee which promotes equal opportunities.

"As one of my erstwhile colleagues said, they are doing it on purpose [...] Mr. Bennett's membership of that committee undermines its function and purpose and impacts on the Assembly's reputation amongst those it is meant to champion."

The plural pronoun in the quote is a little ambiguous but I assume it refers to the UKIPpers. Perhaps the other "they" have accepted his nomination onto the Committee to highlight his ignorance, neuter his opposition and give him an opportunity to learn - although perhaps not the best week to trudge out "Education, Education, Education".
