During the Green Party’s deputy leadership hustings in Yorkshire and the Humber this weekend, the candidates were asked the straighforward question “what is a woman?” Guido would have thought the answer to be pretty simple. Listening to the candidates’ answers, apparently not. Guido has provided the baffling (abridged) quotes below…
God help primary school staff teaching this stuff under a Green Party administration…
UPDATE 22 July, 2020:
Congratulations to Andrea Carey Fuller, a candidate for deputy leader:
How hard was that?
Green Party deputy leader Amelia Womack has now deleted a tweet depicting Israel being to blame for the failure of Venezuelan socialism. She said the image, which shows the United States as Death, wielding a scythe bearing the flag of Israel and drawing blood in four separate continents, as painting “a thousand words.” Initially she bizarrely blamed her tweet on her phone running out of battery…
Despite calls for an apology last night it took until late this morning for Womack to actually offer one. Why did it take so long for someone to convince her that maybe a pithy jokey ‘explanation’ in this instance doesn’t quite cut the mustard..?
Yesterday I tweeted a picture which, in my ignorance, I thought was satirising US imperialism. It wasn't, it was in fact anti-Semitic and i apologise wholeheartedly for tweeting it. I abhor antisemitism in all forms. There is no excuse for what I did and I'm truly sorry.

Green deputy leader Amelia Womack well out of her depth and without an answer for why she says the government is pursuing an “extreme” Brexit…
The Green Party’s cute deputy leader Ameila Womack wasn’t pulling her punches yesterday, when asked about Jim Jepps’ “childhood sexuality” shame at the Greens’ youth manifesto launch:
“Jim isn’t anything to do with the Green Party and he isn’t a member… I think it’s very clear that Jim isn’t part of the party and that Natalie is our spokesperson and these aren’t opinions that are held by Natalie and they’re certainly not opinions that are held by the Green Party and opinions that are condemned by the Green Party.”
Just imagine if Mrs Farage had said something so outrageous. The left would be on the streets by now.
