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…

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 .

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

    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.

    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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
