In the coming week or two we plan to post a detailed critique of the International Men’s Day debate in the House of Commons, along with the video footage, on our YouTube channel. In the meantime the footage is available on iPlayer, our blog piece linking to that is here.
Earlier this afternoon, on BBC News 24, there was the customary half-hour-long ‘The Week in Parliament’. Predictably the IMD debate wasn’t even mentioned in passing – well, only 49% of voters in the UK are men – but the BBC found the time for the more important parliamentary stories from the past week:
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall speaking to an inquiry about mis-shapen vegetables
The lack of disposal points for paint remnants after house decoration
Toblerone bars being reduced in weight
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.
