Paula Sherriff, the MP for Dewsbury, is one of several hatchet-faced trout who spoke at excessive length during the International Men’s Day debate yesterday. She’s currently the Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, and is evidently from the same unfortunate mould as Jess Phillips MP. Both were selected from (deeply sexist) all-women shortlists, as so many of the most woeful Labour MPs – all, it would seem, feminists – have been. They surely couldn’t have become parliamentary candidates if they’d had to compete with men. The evidence that Ms Sherriff was chosen from one of the shortlists is here.
One page on her official website has the title:
I promise to campaign for greater equality.
The ensuing piece mentions the word ‘women’ 11 times, ‘girls’ once, ‘men’ once, ‘boys’ not at all. Equality is a fine thing. The final paragraph:
Please rest assured that here, in the communities of Dewsbury, Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton, I will support those local women, and men, [my emphasis] who continue to contact me having been unfairly hit by government austerity cuts and, nationally I will campaign for greater opportunity and greater equality for all.
Hopefully the male voters of Dewsbury will give Ms Sherriff the boot at the 2020 general election, in recognition of her obvious lack of concern for them.
