Godfrey Bloom has been nominated for the Women's Committee Equal Opportunities Prize by his Polish (female) colleague, Urszula Krupa. She said: "Godfrey has spoken out highlighting specific areas of employment legislation that militate against the employment of younger women," she says. "As a successful businessman himself, his views carry some authority."
The result will be announced on March 8, International Women's Day. Although Bloom doesn't normally mark the occasion, he said: "Believe me, I'll celebrate it if I win," with a grin.
