Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh (SNP) lost her seat in the general election. Let’s rejoice.

While we were all disappointed that Jess Phillips was re-elected in the general election, there was some good news beyond Sophie ‘Doughnuts’ Walker (WEP) losing her deposit in Shipley.

Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, the SNP member for Ochil and South Perthshire, made enough absurd comments during her speech in the course of Philip Davies’s debate on International Men’s Day, that we presented her with that month’s Toxic Feminist of the Month award. So I was delighted to learn she’d lost her seat in the general election, to one of 12 new Conservative MPs in Scotland.

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.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    As I recall the very special law to suspend the Equality Act to allow for direct discrimination in selection of political candidates has to be periodically renewed. As the leaders of three of the UK Gov. are women and 4 of the Parties in the UK Parliament are led by women ( including the two “governing” parties) I can’t see there could be any argument for a further suspension of Equality rights.
    The Law was brought in following a successful challenge by a male Labour candidate arguing that it was Direct Discrimination on the basis of sex which is illegal in the UK.

      There never WAS any case for suspending those rights. Women have always been far more highly represented as MPs (now 30%) than applying to be PPCs (10%, last time I checked). It will be renewed until 50% of MPs are female, then 50% of cabinet ministers… this is a train that only ever goes one way, and will never stop, until a concrete block is laid on the track.

    One of the most vile MPs. I’m actually rather happy with the results overall. Salmond sacked. Angus Robertson sacked. Cleggie sacked. Ahmed-Sheikh sacked. DUP being part of the government.

    Just sending you that fiver I promised you, Mike. I didn’t vote in the end as I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for “the lesser of 4 evils”. I’m in the other Perth constituency and the SNP incumbent, Wishart, managed to scrape in with 21 more votes than the Tories. So it would have been 20 if I’d voted. But I couldn’t for the life of me see any major differences between the Tory and the Scot Nat in terms of policies, other than the independence issue.
