The determinedly ‘Ms’ Ceri Goddard is in the news again.
One of the guiding hands behind Harman’s feminista movement for equality legislation, she is the original dripping faucet on the subject of equality for women.
It was Ceri and her fellow harridans who pushed for more full time employment for women. The idea that women should be at home looking after the children was anathema to them.
It was Ceri and her fellow harridans who pushed for child benefit to be paid directly to women – wife beating husbands would only drink the money they claimed.
It was Ceri and her fellow harridans who pushed for tax credits to enable more women to bring up children without the helping hand of those hateful men.
It was Ceri and her fellow harridans who wanted public money to be paid to women to enable them to afford child care and take a full time job.
They have been remarkably successful.
65% of employees in the public sector are now female. There was no complaint that this discriminated against men.
70% of the benefits bill is paid to women in various forms. There was no complaint that this discriminated against men.
Now Ceri is behind the request for a judicial review of the government’s recent emergency budget on the grounds that it discriminates against women.
Because Ceri and her fellow harridans have pushed for 65% of public service jobs and 70% of benefits to be paid to women and thus ‘they will be disproportionately affected by the cuts’.
To paraphrase A A Gill – On your bike, Ceri.
