Boris Johnson waves kipper and declares himself a feminist at final hustings

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 2019:

If we needed reminding that Boris Johnson isn’t a social conservative, and is of a like mind with David Cameron on gender political issues – they were at Oxford University at the same time – it’s here. An extract:

At the hustings, Boris Johnson also described himself ‘absolutely’ as a feminist, to applause from the audience. He said: ‘A feminist is somebody who believes fundamentally in the equality of human beings and the equality of the sexes. [J4MB: No, a feminist is someone who believes in increasing female privilege at the expense of males, regardless of the harm that results to men, women, and children.] That’s what I believe.’ But he said he wouldn’t support all-women shortlists to increase the number of female politicians in the Tory party. ‘I’m not certain that introducing quotas, which are by their nature discriminatory, are the way to solve the problem,’ he said. [J4MB: There is, of course, no problem to be solved. At the last count, men outnumbered women 10:1 as prospective parliamentary candidates.  By this metric, women are considerably OVER-represented as MPs and peers.]
