There has been a bitter backlash against hopping mad Kate Green. She says Strangers selling “Top Totty Ale” is beyond the pale, but there’s trouble brewing. Centre right women’s think tank WomenOn have hit back:
“More authoritarian posturing from radical feministas who are after a fun-free and sex-free world.”
Guido hears the ban will happen though. You can protest it with an offensive Twibbon here.
UPDATE: It’s officially banned. A sud day.
UPDATE: UKIP MEP Mike Nattrass is on the rampage:
“Ms Green really is a humourless sort. She thinks by throwing about this well loved ale will deflect from her own failings. Failings that include failing to declare her financial interests properly. After all she has been censured for not mentioning her Union sponsorship.
Top Totty, first arrived at the strangers bar in 2007 as a guest beer, and was sold out within 3 days. It has been a finalist in the National Beer Awards and is a fine brew. Ms Green obviously wouldn’t know this given that she boasts that she hasn’t set foot in the Stranger’s Bar in year and a half since she was elected. In may ways that tells us everything we need to know.
This sort of knee-jerk Puritanism does more to damage the cause of equality than a thousand beer labels”, he said. “It suggests that to be in favour of equality you must indulge in dour-faced, insult-searching misery.”
