You can usually rely on one or two gems in Amanda Platell’s page in the Saturday edition of the Daily Mail. From today’s edition:
A Guardian reviewer of the new film Suffragette proclaims it’s ‘a tart reminder to those who are casual about democratic gender equality that votes for women were not something that naturally evolved due to the ruling classes’ innate decency; they had to be fought for’.
Such sanctimonious drivel is enough to make you want to throw yourself under a racehorse.
In July 2013 we published a piece linking to a Guardian article which admitted the truth about the death of Emily Davison, a Suffragette, in 1913. Her death was a tragedy, as was the later suicide of Herbert Jones, the rider of the King’s horse. But it was certainly not suicide.
