My thanks to Jeff for this. The Mail has published a ludicrous article by Dame Helena Morrissey, titled, “Why women really SHOULD rule the world (or at least run more businesses), according to City superwoman DAME HELENA MORRISSEY”.
Dame Helena Morrissey is the mother of nine children and for many years a leading light in campaigns to increase the proportion of women on corporate boards in the UK. A central claim in her campaigning has been that evidence shows that appointing more women to corporate boards leads to improved corporate financial performance, i.e. there is a causal link.
SHE’S A LIAR.
She is mis-representing correlation as causation. Our associated organization Campaign for Merit in Business has been publicising the evidence of a causal link between more women on boards and corporate financial DECLINE since its launch in 2012. I appeared before the House of Commons “Women in the Workplace” inquiry in November 2012, here (video, 56:49).
The eagerness with which senior businessmen – chairmen and CEOs among them – have jumped on the bandwagon of “more women on boards” is shameful. Blithering idiots, one and all.
It is high time the media exposed Morrissey as the egregious LIAR she has been for so many years.

Regular followers of this website are aware that neither Elizabeth Hobson, party leader, nor Mike Buchanan, party chairman, draw any income from the party’s income streams. They both work very long hours on behalf of men and boys (and the women who love them) so they’re unable to engage in paid employment.
We appeal to those who appreciate our work for financial support to help us meet our living expenses. We’ve set up Patreon pages for this purpose. Elizabeth’s page is here, Mike’s page is here. Thank you for your support.
