Our leading commercial real estate company Bayleys, produce a beautifully made, heavy gloss paper two-monthly publication entitled “Total Property.”
Its primary purpose is to list commercial buildings they have for sale across the land.
These listings are preceded by some articles, usually market commentaries, indeed I’ve written some over the years.
However, Bayleys have blundered badly with their latest issue’s article by instead of the usual market commentary, bragging about their company’s efforts to promote diversity. On the cover they show a photo of what I naturally assumed, given their diversity claim, were six chaps in drag. But alas, further reading revealed they were in fact females.
Bayleys simply aren’t up to speed in trying to be trendy and “with it.” In today’s world, claiming diversity requires a bevy of homosexuals, transsexuals, cripples, blacks, dwarfs and such-like. Including two maoris as they have done, won’t cut it as that’s old hat.
Still, it’s not too late to mend their ways and join the modern world.
