The odious Jess Phillips MP (L, Birmingham Yardley) – a particularly deserving Toxic Feminist of the Month – is a member of the Women and Equalities Committee to which Philip Davies is being appointed. So what did the Yardley Yob have to say about the news? For this we turn to the first article on the matter published by the Guardian – here:
Labour’s outspoken MP renowned for her feminist views, Jess Phillips said: “I’ll not be standing in the way of it. I have every faith that the intelligence and skills of those on the committee will mean he will have little effect, much like in the rest of his career.”
Hardly surprisingly, there are just two men on the 11-member Women and Equalities Committee, the official website of which is here. They are Gavin Shuker (L, Luton South) and the openly gay Ben Howlett (C, Bath). From the same Guardian article:
The Labour Party said that select committees were matters for MPs, while Labour MP, Gavin Shuker, announced the news and then added: “Just let that sink in for a minute.”
