Another delightful British male chauvnist.

I love the man already.

A woman’s place? Cleaning the fridge

Godfrey Bloom has cultivated a reputation as a plain-speaking Yorkshireman. But his blunt manner may have got the newly-elected UKIP MEP into hot water.

He believes no sane businessman would employ a woman of child-bearing age. And he believes that women don’t clean enough behind the fridge.

And he’s just been appointed to the European Parliament’s women’s rights committee.

Mr Bloom told the media: “No self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age.”

A range of fellow politicians were outraged, saying his views were terrifying and outrageous.

Mr Bloom, an investment fund manager from York, told journalists he wanted to deal with women’s issues because: “I just don’t think they clean behind the fridge enough”.

“I am here to represent Yorkshire women who always have dinner on the table when you get home. I am going to promote men’s rights,” he added.

The comments provoked a strong reaction from Labour Euro MP Glenys Kinnock, who said: “We know UKIP are Neanderthal in their attitudes, but it is absolutely terrifying that Mr Bloom can fly in the face of what we have worked and fought for, to establish equal opportunities and rights for women.”

She said she will be keeping an eye on him: “He cannot strut around here saying things like that.”

Liberal Democrat MEP leader Chris Davies said: “It looks like it is time for a ride back to the 1950s on the UKIP time machine, to the golden age of women’s rights and opportunities.

“UKIP look set to prove themselves as a recruiting sergeant for the pro-European cause and all the measures taken by the European Union to promote equal opportunities.”

Mr Bloom is one of 11 UKIP MEPs – a massive increase from the three MEPs the party had in the last European Parliament.

They joined 730 others from 25 nations at the parliamentary building in Strasbourg on the first day of this five-year parliament.

UKIP aim to bring “Britain back from Brussels” and ultimately want the UK to pull out of the EU altogether.

It gets better: Ukip MEP: Pregnant women should resign

Ukip’s most high-profile member, Robert Kilroy-Silk, lost his BBC talk show after making controversial comments about Arabs, in which he labelled them “women repressors”.

So feminists are mad at this party for saying that mothers shouldn’t work, and for daring to point out the horrible things Arabs do to women. That’s feminist logic for you.

    Here’s some more for you.

    Sir Alan Sugar, billionaire entrepreneur who does The Apprentice here in the UK: Women bosses are more likely to discriminate against mothers. Do they debate him? Of course not, they call him a “dinosaur”.

    Sir Patrick Moore, lifelong bachelor, childhood friend of Sir Arthur C Clarke, longest TV presenter in the world (same show for 50 years) and the Soviet Union and NASA used his observations of the moon when they were both trying to correlate photographs to maps: Moore blames women for ‘banal’ TV. Although it’s not in that BBC article, most places also called him a “dinosaur” at the time and refused to debate him. Most of the user comments at the BBC were in support of him however.

    And here’s a bonus: John McCririck. He’s a completely eccentric horse racing pundit and is on TV almost every morning. He calls all of his female co-presenters merely “female”; he never uses their actual names and so you get stuff like, “oi female! What are the odds on this hourse?” Personally he is more than I can cope with and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s actually some kind of feminist false flag operation, but nevertheless he can be hilarious. He was on Big Brother once and put in the same house with Germaine Greer, even though they both acted like absolute children, Greer snapped first.

    Whenever men like these speak out they are NEVER debated, just totally dismissed with terms like “dinosaur”. Feminists know that standard shaming language like small penis jokes would backfire in these situations and quite frankly they’re probably far too scared to invite these men on a show and actually debate them, so stuff like “dinosaur” is the best they can come up with (and they always use the same terms. Did they all go to the same training camps?).
