Labour want political parties funded per lack of y chromosome
What a croc of shite. Labour’s policy on funding parties page 60 manifesto.
We will tie public funding for political parties to the level of participation by women as public representatives those parties achieve. Demanding targets for all parties – including our own – will be set out in legislation.
Sorry but this is just discrimination.
Look at Irish politicians which of the Mary’s have got to the cabinet table due to their gender. None. Each one of them has got their due to their ability and that is the way it should be. It should not be due to them filling some kind of quota it should be based on ability. Who wants to be nominated for election to fill a funding criteria? Surely being the best for the job is what is desirable.
This is the typical left-wing stance thinking that if something is not equal that it should be forcibly legislated upon people’s pockets. The idea that funding would be granted purly on gender is terrible and I would bet unconstitutional.
