A piece by John Crace of the Guardian. The number of male MPs in the chamber during the debate – 83 minutes long, as opposed to the scheduled 150 minutes – let along engaging in it, was, it must be said, shockingly small. Well, only 49% of electors are men, so why should MPs – male or female – have the slightest interest in men’s (or boys’) issues?
They were markedly outnumbered (certainly in terms of speaking time) by feminist MPs, whose favourite narrative for the debate was men being responsible for the high suicide rate, because – unlike women – men are disinclined to talk about their problems. So, victim blaming, then.
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.
