Our thanks to Stu for this. Extracts:
Mr Davies won the Shipley seat with a majority of 9,624 at the last election, with 50 per cent of the vote. Labour took 31 per cent and Ukip came in third with 8.9 per cent. The Greens were in fourth place with 5.3 per cent. However the Guardian suggests other parties, such as the Greens, may stand down at a local level to allow the WEP to win against Mr Davies… [And why would they do this? In an effort to get rid of the only MP (out of 650) who regularly talks on men’s issues.]
Ms Walker said at the time Philip Davies tried to block the women’s rights bill, known as the Istanbul Convention, that it was “deeply concerning that some MPs still consider women’s equality a threat to men”. [Can Walker be so stupid as not to realise Davies was pointing to women’s PRIVILEGE, not “women’s equality”?] Ms Walker added: “Male survivors need appropriate services to rebuild their lives, but that does not mean that men’s needs should be at the centre of services for women who have survived male violence. [Walker seems to have no problem with female-on-female violence. The highest rates of violence are found in lesbian couples.] Violence against women and girls is not gender neutral [What an asinine stupid statement. Does Walker manage to put on matching shoes in the morning?] – and as long as we fail to understand this we cannot hope to bring an end to it.”
