Amanda Platell: ‘Why Help the Peru Two?’

Amanda Platell, a Daily Mail columnist, can usually be relied upon to pen at least one short piece every week which speaks volumes about the realities of how the genders are treated differently, whether by the state or otherwise. Our thanks to the three supporters who’ve pointed us to one of her pieces, in yesterday’s edition of the paper:

Why Help the Peru Two?

From the moment two British high-life-loving  party girls were arrested for trying to smuggle 11kg of cocaine out of Peru, the  Foreign Office has worked tirelessly to help them.

As a result, they received much reduced  sentences, which they may yet get to serve in Britain.

What a contrast to the FO’s apparent  abandonment of the British surgeon, Dr Abbas Khan, who went to Syria on a  humanitarian mission and was found hanged after a year’s imprisonment and  torture, just days before his promised release.

His brother Shahnawaz Khan said: ‘We are proud that he died doing something he believed in, helping people who were in  desperate need.’

How different to the drug mules, who were just greedy fools fuelling a trade in misery. So why were they the ones to get  Government support?

Does Ms Platell really not know why criminal women received more support from the state than a male doctor on a humanitarian mission? We somehow doubt it. It’s solidly in line with how the state always allocates limited resources on the basis of gender, given a choice.

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.

    This is what happens when congenital pro-female prejudice is institutionalised. It’s amazing how many journalists, academics and politicians are still in denial to the pro-female bias standing at the very core of our biology. The political, social and ethical implications are probably too much for them to handle – plus the current situation serves the elites very well…
