I spent a considerable time seeking (but failing) to get Baroness Brady to understand the difference between causation and correlation, and pointed to the evidence (from before 2012, and since) which demonstrates a clear causal link between increasing gender diversity on boards and corporate financial DECLINE. I would have had more success explaining correlation and causation to a cat. Cats are smart.

Our discussion was a lengthy one, but only four minutes of content appeared in the final two-hour-long TV programme. Channel 5 reneged on their earlier agreement to allow us to post the piece on our YouTube channel, with copyright clearance, so I posted this (audio, 1:30) on our channel. I’m not sure that Brady uttered the words I added onto the image, but I imagine she must have thought them.

#whydomenearnmorethanwomen omg someone slap that man! So rude!

Thank you again Mr. Buchanan for explaining to this disillusioned female and her ignorant female audience the truths about the payscale inequality. But like we all know the truth is hard to accept for them sooo they resort to name calling or lebeling to make themselves feel superior or empowered. How female like…..
