BBC’s voice of golf Peter Alliss (84) causes new sexism storm by saying Open winner’s wife would spend his winnings on a new kitchen

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in July 2015:

Priceless. A tip of the hat to Mr Alliss.

An extract from the article:

He (Alliss) said that many female players had given up the sport as a result of changes to the law saying: ‘There’s been a hell of a row because four golf courses that hold the Open Championship didn’t have women members.

‘I’m told the Ladies’ Golf Union has lost 150,000 members since equality for women came in. Hundreds of women have left golf clubs because they’ve gone from paying half fare to full fare. It’s caused mayhem.

‘All of the wives of members at these clubs could have used the facilities for free. When I was at Muirfield a couple of years ago talking to a few of the lady members, I said: “What about this equality? You must be happy about that?” “God no,” they said. “We can come here and do what we like, we can play golf and don’t pay anything”.’

Gender equality is a fine thing…
