BBC News 24: ‘The Week in Parliament’ fails to mention the International Men’s Day debate, but it covers mis-shapen vegetables and Toblerone bar weight reductions

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 November 2016:

In the coming week or two we plan to post a detailed critique of the International Men’s Day debate in the House of Commons, along with the video footage, on our YouTube channel. In the meantime the footage is available on iPlayer, our blog piece linking to that is here.

Earlier this afternoon, on BBC News 24, there was the customary half-hour-long ‘The Week in Parliament’. Predictably the IMD debate wasn’t even mentioned in passing – well, only 49% of voters in the UK are men – but the BBC found the time for the more important parliamentary stories from the past week:

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall speaking to an inquiry about mis-shapen vegetables

The lack of disposal points for paint remnants after house decoration

Toblerone bars being reduced in weight
