House of Commons debate on International Men’s Day

Last Thursday, along with a number of supporters, I had the pleasure of watching Philip Davies’s debate in recogition of International Men’s Day, from the public gallery of the House of Commons. Our thanks to a supporter for preparing this file (video, 1:22:43) of the proceedings. I’ve put some background under it, including a link to a commentary I’ve prepared, with timings – here.

Two of the most compelling contributions to the debate were from a couple of hatchet-faced feminists, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh (SNP, Ochil and South Perthshire) and Paula Sherriff (L, Dewsbury). A couple of SNP manginas debased themselves, in a pathetic but surely futile attempt to curry favour with Mistress – Nicola Sturgeon – whose first act as First Minister of Scotland was to appoint a gender-balanced cabinet.

We look forward to next year’s debate.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    While there were some good contributions from the government benches, I though the general standard woeful. The Deputy Speaker was either biased or barely competent. She was appalling and failed to keep the Scottish feminists from long harangues on women’s issues, which were entirely irrelevant to the debate, and sexually offensive remarks about men.

    How much lower will we allow ourselves to be dragged?

      I had the impression, that in the first few seconds, when the Deputy Speaker announced “…International Men’s day” she seemed to be struggling to suppress a smirk. Occurs about 20 seconds in.

      • I had exactly the same thought – it’s after 8 seconds. This was the woman who, after all, was instrumental in the debate lasting not for the scheduled 150 minutes but 83 minutes – she allowed the previous debate to go 67 minutes beyond its due finish at 14:30 due to feminist MP filibustering, but ended the IMD debate at 17:00, as scheduled. Why did she not extend the debate to end at 18:07? Plus she allowed outrageous anti-male rhetoric from numerous feminist MPs (and SNP manginas), most notably Paula Sherriff (new Lying Feminist of the Month) and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh (new Toxic Feminist of the Month).

        I haven’t seen that, I’ll have another look. Thanks for pointing it out
