Mike Buchanan informs Lorely Burt, a Lib Dem MP, that she’s talking rubbish about the gender pay gap

Last night we loaded a piece onto YouTube with the wrong audio file. These things can happen on Xmas Day. Maybe we should have taken the day off. The piece we loaded was an audio file which included a contribution from Scarlet Harris, Women’s Equality Policy Officer at the TUC. We’ll shortly be presenting her with a ‘Gormless Feminist of the Month’ award in recognition of her contribution to the programme.

The file we meant to load last night was this. It’s an exchange about the gender pay gap with Lorely Burt, a Lib Dem MP who won her seat (Solihull) in 2010 with a majority of just 175 more votes than her Conservative challenger. For a woman in such a precarious position, her sneering remarks about hardworking men were ill-advised, to say the least, and we hope the male voters in Solihull will force her to find an alternative line of work after May 7.

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.
