Ban This Sick Filth

Liz Kendall memorably told the Mail on Sunday’s Simon Walters to “f**k off” when he asked her if she is “about the same weight as the Duchess of Cambridge”. Liz was so outraged that she told John Pienaar:

“I just think it’s unbelievable that in the 21st Century women still get asked such very, very different questions from men. Can you imagine the Mail on Sunday asking the weight of the prime minister, George Osborne or any other leading politician?”

Well, now you mention it…

Here is Walters’ MoS interview with the Chancellor last year:

“it is more intimate matters that we discuss first. It is impossible not to notice his dramatic weight loss. He is a real skinny malink. ‘Am I?’ he says, modestly patting his slim line waist.

‘You reach that point in your mid-40s where suddenly the weight doesn’t drop off and you have to … it’s a hard fact of life. I found myself putting on weight being stuck in here [No 11] and the Treasury. I asked my doctor which diets he thought worked. He recommended the 5:2.’ Is he still on it?

‘No, the 5:2 diet helps you get down the weight – I lost a couple of stone – and once you’re there, you just have to be careful. I just eat less and go running round the park.’”

In fact the men of Westminster get scrutinised just as much as the ladies…

Quote of the Day

Matthew Parris self-diagnoses as a Remainiac:

“There’s no denying it. My spirit is restless and I must confess. This Brexit thing is driving me slightly mad. And I do mean that clinically: not as a rhetorical flourish. My mental state, like that of so many I know on both sides of the Remain/Brexit divide, is capable of medical diagnosis. A shaft of insanity has pierced our interior lives. I really am becoming a Remainiac… I know I’m boring my readers; know there’s almost nothing left to be said; know that the voice in my head, my mother’s voice, telling me I just need a good night’s sleep, is right… Is it not the first and clearest indication that the balance of one’s mind has been disturbed that, when having done all one reasonably can to achieve a result, one simply cannot let something go? What is the point of waking up at 3 a.m. and fretting sleepless until sunrise that we are leaving the European Union?”
