The Guardian: Suspend the rightwing Tory MP Philip Davies? No way, he’d love it.

A piece published by The Guardian today. Neither this piece, nor one published by the paper yesterday, appears to have a comments section. Hmm, why might that be?

A flavour of the article by Michael White, associate editor and former political editor:

There are more women in the cabinet and boardroom, but not yet enough, and women’s dominance of the university entrance levels grows every year. Only the other day a female judge, whom a loutish J4MB type called “a bit of a cunt”, replied: “You are a bit of a cunt yourself” before sending him down.

Hmm, so a right-wing racist who shouted obscenities in court is ‘a loutish J4MB type’? Even by the standards of The Guardian, this is scraping the bottom of the barrel. No evidence is presented to substantiate the assertion, of course, possibly because no evidence exists.

I never thought I’d say it, but I’m starting to warm towards The Guardian. It’s become a parody of itself. Happy days.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Still waiting for one of these articles to counter the stats he showed with their own. I wonder why.

  • I would like the journalist to back up the claim that anyone linked to J4MB is loutish. It appears to be the journalist that is supporting that behaviour by a judge or all people. He uses the scandal of the lack of support for men going into higher education to justify more women being in boardrooms despite quotas to artificially let then get there with the required years of experience. Last time I look there was not degree to be a managing director. Very few women seem to be willing to make the sacrifices men have to make to get to the top, family and children are always her priorities. Maybe he can say what has to happen to all the men now regularly passed over for promotion due to the push of women at the top for ideological reasons only, and the loss of the men’s potential to the country. I am not holding my breath, but I do expect more lazy loutish journalism.

  • It’s the sudden withdrawal of a comments stream on Guardian articles like these that is interesting.

    This august example of the British press used to just prematurely close the comments streams within hours when, as usual, they were faced with a deluge of adverse but articulate comments from normal people (aka knuckle-draggers to guardianistas) that showed a massive groundswell of adverse public opinion to such ridiculously partisan, blind, and ideological pieces as this.

    Now, it seems, they’ve adopted the wizard wheeze of wheeling out the big wheels to just briefly pop up above the parapet, throw a few stones, then duck down for cover with their hands over their ears chanting la, la, la…

    Very free-speech, very intelligent, n’est ce-pas?

    I harbour the fond dream that one day soon, when this Marxy, femmy, one-worldy, leftie, luvvie rag goes out of business, as it surely will because it is losing a shedload of money every day and that can’t go on forever – and this rag bag of superannuated cultural communists who ‘know’ their own truth, are out of a job – that someone will stand up in a public forum and say, as Nigel Farage did, ‘Well, you’re not laughing now, are you?’

    That day we’ll raid these champagne socialists’ cellars and have a drink on them eh? Or no, sod it, we’ll buy it ourselves and raise a toast to freedom of speech.

  • Well I certainly look forward to Mike B’s Farage moment. It intrigues me how crowing about the female dominance in Uni.s demonstrates Mr. Davies’ wrongheadedness. Puts me so much in mind of J4MBs old strapline.

    As one knuckle-dragger to another one could flirt with the view that there’s no such thing as bad publicity..

  • it’s very simple, if they won’t allow comments then lets use an archive, especially when they stoop as low as this. Here’s an archive:

    I know they’re losing huge amounts of cash right now, but we need to help the process along by denying them ad revenue.

  • In my opinion, J4MB has good grounds for suing the Guardian.
