Interesting post found on a political web site:
At last! Politicians have "discovered" that Britain
is a broken society. This is a welcome and enlightened step to take,
and, flying in the face of all the accepted "social speak" which
flies around today, must be regarded as courageous.
Their 'sidelines" have also
been activities such as sponsoring divorce on a large scale, and also
the killing of hundreds of thousands
Women in High Office - some accurate observations by Athos.
A short while ago I came across a website of quotations. It was, quite obviously, run by some man-hating feminist as I realised when I read the section on men and the section on women. The latter contained the following quote:
"I will feel equality has arrived when we can elect to office women who are as incompetent as some of the men who are already there."
Also, when women do achieve relatively high positions, or professional occupations (solicitors, barristers, accountants etc.) their full-time employment life-span is two years maximum, which is when the 'Penny and the Bun' syndrome kicks in (see my story by the same name). This is when they want to 'have a break', 'start a family' (with 6months paid maternity leave, plus an optional extra 6 months when their job must be kept open for them), or start their own business. Then, usually after two more years, they want to return to work - at the same rate of pay and conditions as they enjoyed before (providing it's equal to that of a man, who hasn't had the same options open to him). On top of that, they expect to be allowed to work what is jocularly known as 'flexi-hours', in order to fit in with picking up the kids from nursery, school, going shopping, preparing the evening meal, and a host of other things. Once again, a priviledge not open to men.
Perhaps politicians DO learn from their mistakes and the mistakes of others
Tony Blair said, before
his first challenge, that if he were elecetd to power he would put
more women in the Cabinet.
Gordon Brown evidently has learned from Blair's mistake and has not put many women in his Cabinet.
In those days, of course, female undergrads were in the minority but feminism in its ascendancy. I'd like to think that, if she were to try such a scam at Oxford now, the male undergrads would tell her where to stick her Tampax. Well - there's only a couple of inches difference!
When the Welsh Assembly was formed
it was the boast of Rhodri Morgan that over half the Assembly Members
were women. Jane Hutt as Minister of Health saw to it that most of
the NHS budget was spent of women's health. The health of Welsh men was all but ignored.
How the Welsh Assembly continues to discriminate against the men of Wales
For the benefit of those who visit this site from other countries, allow me to set the scene for the following article.
Misandry of the Welsh Assembly
The writer’s opening remark was to state that it was the 70th birthday of Erin Pizzey who opened the first women’s refuge in the UK, in London. To ostensibly celebrate Erin Pizzey's 70th birthday with an article such as Nerys Evans's would, I have no doubt, be a bitter disappointment to Erin. I have known her for a number of years. Several years ago, it was my privilege to present an award to Erin for her work on men's issues. She is now one of the Patrons of a leading UK men’s charity.
Censorship of books in the UK
Massive neglect of men’s charities by Welsh Assembly
The help available for women all over Wales was referred to by Nerys Evans. She is correct; it's available all over the UK with millions of pounds being spent on the provision of over 500 refuges for women and also helplines etc. And how many refuges are provided for men? Just five, and only one of those is in Wales.
Why men do not report domestic abuse by women
The hoary old figures of "1 woman in 4 will experience domestic violence in her lifetime" is quoted, yet again, in Nerys Evans's piece. The fact that some of this is woman on woman violence she conveniently ignores, thus implying that all the perpetrators are men. But the real howler committed by the writer is the question: “Does this mean that 1 in 4 men in Wales commits domestic abuse?” Her ignorance of the mathematics of probability shine through here and the simple answer to her question is: “No, it does not.” What she also fails to mention is that, in the same survey that gives the “1 in 4” figure, it also states that 1 in 6 men will also suffer domestic violence in his lifetime. This fact is also conveniently ignored. But, to use her particular brand of mathematical logic, does that mean that 1 in 6 women are perpetrators of domestic violence? and to further use her logic, does it mean that some women in the Welsh Assembly could be perpetrators?
I can absolutely agree with Nerys Evans's final point: "The time has come to extend the debate about domestic abuse. We all have a vital role to play in making sure these behavioural patterns and attitudes change, so we break the silence about, and the acceptance of, domestic abuse in all our communities in Wales." I hope the facts I have given above help to extend the debate just as she suggested and that male victims of domestic abuse by women will be taken into account.
There is currently some talk about the possibility of a Welsh referendum to decide whether the Welsh Assembly should have full law-making powers. Taking into account the figures I have given above, and having regard to the Assembly’s misandric attitude and discrimination against men for years past, I imagine that all Welshmen will assume that the idea is some sort of sick joke.
