Tory Women Problem Update

It would look pretty bad for any Sports Minister to suggest that “unfeminine” girls should do “ballet, gymnastics, cheerleading and even roller-skating”, but Helen Grant’s comments are particularly bad given that she is also the Equalities Minister.

Meanwhile Phil Hammond managed to call Liz Kendall “Rachel” not once, but twice, on Question Time last night. While this is a damning indictment of the impact Kendall has made in her Shadow Health role, it’s easy opposition from Labour. Video to follow…

    Prime Minister"Money's no object" Cameron says:

    Is this the year of the feminist for the BBC, I hate myself for just being man ?

      Poor Girl. She’s a dead ringer for Foghorn Reeves

        Nigel Farage from UKIP says:

        Have you any pictures of her in a bikini?

        • 21
          A man from Sky news says:

          No, sadly we only have a picture of her in her bikini bottoms.

          • Tom says:

            Hammond came over poorly last night, putting forward the governments case weakly or ill tempered. The Labour girl put a far stronger case forward, with good nature.
            Voters go for that every time.
            Cameron and his cabinet of coasters need to wake up or Milliband & Co will walk in ease. They’re a shambles relying solely on the Treasury to do the work for them.

      Man up Bullingdon boy .. and start by giving the wife her full conjugal rights on a nightly basis.

    "Kral" says:

    Seems the Equality Taliban are indulging in their favourite sport of kneejerking again.

    Nothing wrong with Helen Grant’s views. Many girls don’t want to do some sports because they don’t like sweating or fear getting chunky arms and legs so encouraging them into dance is a good way to keep them active.

  3. 3
    The British media are cunts says:

    I like cheerleaders. They should get some at Manchester United, would be more entertaining than what is going on on the pitch.

    i don't need no doctor says:

    Aren’t all labour women MP’s called Rachael and are boring?

      A cheeky scouser says:

      Many years ago me and my mate went to a YC Ball to look for some Totty.

      The only thing we got screwed over was the raffle.

      Hammond says:

      It’s All That Gas.

      Jack Ketch says:

      They all go to the same speech coach. You know, the one who developed the Daleks for Dr. Who and has been able to incapacitate dogs and bats from two miles away.

    Polly Toynbi says:

    There’s nothing wrong with cheerleading.

  6. 7
    Long John Silver's parrot says:

    I thought there was supposed to be equality between the sexes.

    It seems to me that women just want to be on top all of the time these days.

    They are definitely on top when nit comes to stealing our money in Parliamentary expenses.

      I approve of ladies first as well as being on top – they also tend to come more often that way.

    What’s Miliband’s view on Harman, Dromey, Hewitt and PIE?

  8. 9
    Margaret Hodge says:

    This Socialist bint is not the smartest is she.

    All she had to do was go through the whole programme calling Hammond “Dave”.

    If she had followed this little trick he would have been finished this morning.

    Happy Gooner says:

    Back to primary school in the 70′s, at break time, left to ourselves, it was football or British bulldog. Boys and Girls together. For PE? Country Dancing! FFS! But we all felt like winners right?

    Dave Cameron says:

    People who go to Food Banks should be flogged in public.

    We have a moral duty to do so so that future generations grow up with a sense of responsibility.

    Remember to vote for me.

    I am the man in the blue.

      Bristol is sinking says:

      When you stand by and let people go to FoodBanks you are telling them they are second rate and shit.

      Best if you sterilize them before letting them stand in the queue .

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    Vile dinosaurs like McCluskey,Crow and Serwotka should step down in favour of women elected on an all women shortlist.

    Or is it do as i say and not as i do for Labour’s paymasters!

    Lady Mary says:

    One of those arrows is pointing at Mr Cameron. Is there a hot story behind this that Guido has been hiding from his readers?

    To be fair Hammond has difficulty remembering his own name.

    Mark Kermode's Hairdresser says:

    Charlie Kennedy’s fringe was like a glinting hair lid.

    Roger Scruton the philosopher was disappointingly dull and hackneyed. And his hair needed shearing.

    Jeanette Winterson however was passionate and refreshing. And had least worst hair of the lot.

  19. 41
    Hammond says:

    “I agree with Rachael…”

    Anon. says:

    Shut your eyes and they sound the same. Whine,whine,whine.

    No Sport says:

    Stick the sport up your arse! Sideways!

  22. 46
    Maimed Cadger says:

    Just so the Tories understand, Women are the ones who do not shave, except in the Labour Party, where it is quite hard to tell the difference between Men and Women

  23. 47
    A question of sticking your sports up your intellectually crippled leeching arsehole! Sideways says:

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
