Labour MP Dawn Butler hosted Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn in his first public address since campaigning began.
During the Q&A piece, viewers will have noticed a slight feminist approach to proceedings as the MP searches openly for women to pick to ask questions.
“Obviously I’m going to go for the lady in red first [Laura Kuenssberg]”
“I can’t help we’re going to the women, I’m so sorry”
“Okay… Oh, there’s only men putting their hands up now”
“I think we need more women in journalism” (45% of journalists are women in the UK).
Seemingly picking women based on their dress-sense, the party member continued to block male questions.
When she had to pick a man, she did so by finding the male with the brightest colour tie.
Finishing her 5 minutes of man hating, she remarks “The beginning of June always marks the end of May.” Referring to the very unlikely event the Labour party wins the June 8th General Election and Prime Minister Theresa May is removed from Downing Street.
Despite being an elected representative and a well paid member of the British Parliament, Ms. Butler believes that man-hating is perfectly acceptable due to women’s supposed disadvantage in society.
@DawnButlerBrent imagine if you were a man and refused to take questions from women. Outrageous sexism. Identity politics kills labour…
