Quote of the Day

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.”

    Camerons Christian claims are an utter disgrace and prove the man is an out and out liar.

    Not long ago the NHS fired that nurse for wearing a cross to work.

    The man is a liar and cannot be trusted.

    These UN special individuals are not part of the in system, but they do a lot of damage to the UN. It’s a bit like a goodwill ambassador who jets in todo me fly blown country gets a few pics taken and put again.

      It might also be pointed out that female genital mutilation is a result of the influx of foreigners here.

      We should withdraw from the UN as well as the EU.

      Ron Liddle’s remark is unfair to bats – lovely animals and harmless unlike this ridiculous woman.

    Bit of a dim slag
    Still no need for her to worry about being harrassed-munter

      I totally agree that my UN Cape compatriat is telling the rest of the world how bad they are. She would not dare to do it here though.

        Norman Normal says:

        South Africa is now firmly allied with BRICS and backs up China and Russia at the UN.

        You can expect more of this sort of thing in the future.

    Maimed Codger says:

    Yep, I am all for equality… shared toilets would be a good start..


  5. 5
    Palab Gauche says:

    She singled out the British media for sexism. With his rude rant Rod Liddle makes her point for her.


  6. 6
    Anonymous says:

    How dare Ron Liddle criticise this speaker of ineffable wisdom, she being an other-than-white SethEffricun (who therefore must be deferred to) a devotee of Ellah (therefore speaking with total infallibity on behalf of the entire population of the known world) and a Fumminist (and therefore entirely neutral in all gender-related matters)? She is also a member of the UN, that estimable body that has so successfully righted the wrongs of the world (Ruanda, Syria, North Korea, now Ukraine, to name just a few) so her infallibility is even higher than that of the chap in St Peter’s Square (what’s his name?)

    Henry Crun says:

    Don’t think we need to take any advice from someone from the rape capital of the world

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
