EU Labour: Dissolve Companies That Don’t Meet Gender Quotas

Loony Labour in Europe strike again. PES Women, the wimmins’ section of the Party of European Socialists – the Labour Party’s grouping in the European Parliament – have this week called for companies that do not have more than 40% female board members to be dissolved. PES Woman president Zita Gurmai extolled:

“Aspirations are not enough. We need concrete targets to be met (40% of women on boards) and concrete consequences if those targets are missed. The crisis must not be an excuse for not including more women in decision-making positions.”

Apparently EU law should be changed to allow governments to file dispositions to dissolve companies that fail to comply with the crazy diktat from Brussels.

Nothing beats a good old-fashioned purge…

        So if I, being male, set up a company with a male business partner, I have to find a further 2 random women (rounding up to achieve the 40% minimum) to be directors of my and my partner’s company?

        NO F*CKING WAY.

        Were this ever to become legally required, I’d pick up my business and my potential to create jobs and move immediately to Canada.

        Lunatics, these ‘right on’ wimmin, the lot of them.

          People (Men & Women) who read this blog – need to wake up a little bit – What you are getting are the views of “Extremist Feminists” – who go out of their way to dupe ordinary ‘decent and honest women’. The “Extremist Feminists” [EF's] – let’s call them Sabine’s Mob – are deluded women – but they are – very careful and manipulative to dupe and decieve other women into their cause.

        I had a problem with the drains and after being fobbed off by the water authority eventually got on to the council. We’ll send some one along, they said. A couple of hours later two young women , presumably to stop me raping a solitary specimen, arrived. Dressed as for a disco, so unable to perform the basic requirements if a sewer inspector:
        – lift up a manhole cover
        -negotiate stinging nettles and creepy crawlies.
        -orientate the plans relative to the site.
        They left saying they would arrange for a tv crew to come and do an investigation sharpish.
        About a fortnight later, after I’d bought rods, frigged about and fixed things they phoned up to say the camera was u/s , didn’t know when it would be fixed; toodle pip.

But that is not where we are heading with stuff like this. Once the cash runs out and no will lend us anymore (next 20 years) and the economy shrinks as the real money moves East to put us in the top 500 economies instead of the top 20 then this stuff will go away.

      Wimmin's Business Scents in a Nutshell says:

      Don’t forget ‘scented candle shops’. Rent a shop, fit it out, insure it, pay £20K pa in business rates, employ several staff in expensive custom uniforms with something like ‘Scented Candles 4U dot com” on them, and fill said shop with £100K (RRP) worth of scented candles which, of course, no home can do without.

      And, as you sit there beneath your shoulder pads, dreaming of the thousands of customers who are bound to come, you watch the tumble-weed blow past the shop door, interrupted only by the postman/woman delivering all the final demands.

      And then blame men for the fiasco.
