Order of the OTT: Brexit “Greatest Threat” To Women’s Rights

OTT Remainiac nonsense of the day: a new study claims Brexit is “one of the greatest threats to women’s rights”. University of Surrey Head of Politics Prof Roberta Guerrina thinks:

“Brexit poses the greatest modern day threat to women’s rights and gender equality policies in the UK. European legislation affords a degree of protection to women in the UK, but once we leave Europe there is no guarantee that the same levels of protection will remain intact. Women’s reproductive rights are particularly vulnerable to attack.”

The nutty professor has clearly forgotten that “European legislation” hasn’t stopped abortion from being illegal in EU member states such as Ireland, Poland – where the ruling party has recently cut reproductive rights and pushed abortion underground – and Malta, which bans abortion entirely. Meanwhile Amnesty International say there is chronic domestic violence in Hungary and that the country fails to meet international human rights law on protecting women. “European legislation” offers women in these countries no protection.

There is obviously no plan to cut women’s rights in Brexit Britain. It’s almost as if this is mad attention-seeking from taxpayer-funded lefty pro-EU academics. Of course Peston et al are retweeting this guff…

Quote of the Day

Soros on the pan-European elections to the EU parliament…

“It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own. One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.”
