[Note added 17.2.16: It’s just been brought to my attention that the original English-language version of this article is available on the site, here. The version auto-translated from the Italian has a higher comedic content, it must be said.]
The title of this piece is from an Italian newspaper, eastonline. I was interviewed by Christopher Lord. If you click on the ‘Translate’ box in the top right corner, you’ll get this title:
Interview with Mike Buchanan defender of men against the man hating
Now Christopher is a fluent English speaker, as you might expect, and I can only assume the poor quality of the translation of the article into English resulted from the paper using some auto-translation software. It certainly adds a refreshingly comic twist to the article, and you’ll soon get the gist (e.g. MPs are ‘deputies’).
At the 2015 general election I stood in Ashfield, the constituency of Gloria De Piero, Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities. In my agreed text with Christopher I referred to her as ‘a leading feminist politician’, which has been auto-translated to ‘a thick feminist’, pleasingly.
