An article posted on Mail Online yesterday, Revolt of ‘the male, pale and stale’ Ministers: Tories accuse Boris Johnson of ‘tokenism over talent’ as he plans a ‘women-first’ reshuffle this summer. Two extracts:
Caroline Nokes, chairwoman of the Commons’ Women and Equalities committee, said: ‘If male, pale and stale colleagues [J4MB – hence “sexist, racist and ageist”] feel overlooked, perhaps it’s more to do with their ability than their gender.’…
However, despite telling female Tory MPs last week that he was a feminist, Mr Johnson is under pressure to move more women up the ministerial ladder.
