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

Paul Dacre on the Daily Mail’s future support for Brexit…

“…what moves me most are the countless messages from readers worried about whether the Mail will continue its support for EU withdrawal. My answer to them — and others — is unequivocal. Support for Brexit is in the DNA of both the Daily Mail and, more pertinently, its readers. Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide.”
