A quick note about the 'gender balance in the boardroom' issue, a feminist attack on the business sector, which I'm focusing on at the moment (details on my blog I'm writing a new book which again covers this topic at length - you're right to call Cameron's comments Orwellian doublespeak - and last night I posted the following content on my blog:

'John Van Reenen is a Professor in the Department of Economics, and Director of the Centre for Economic Performance, at the London School of Economics. He also serves on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Industrial Economics. It would be hard to imagine anyone more professionally qualified to comment on the causal link (if any) between increased female representation in the boardroom and enhanced corporate performance – a link which is confidently and frequently asserted by the prime minister, a number of cabinet ministers and junior ministers, the CBI and others, to justify ‘improved’ gender balance in the boardroom.
Earlier today I emailed Professor Van Reenen the press release relating to the open letter I recently sent to the Director General of the CBI, John Cridland, concerning the CBI’s position in this area (see earlier post). I asked Professor Van Reenen whether the LSE (or specifically the Centre for Economic Performance) had any evidence of a causal link between increasing the proportion of women in the boardroom, and enhanced corporate performance: and if he did, could he kindly share it with me, because I’ve been seeking such evidence for years without finding any. Professor Van Reenen this evening emailed me the following:

"I personally don’t know of any such evidence, and I am sceptical that there would be a positive causal effect".

As they say in France, ‘Je reste ma valise’.

Anti male agenda of feminists is full of lies. It is not for feminine women, it is based on gender hypocrisy. Feminism is not accepting feminine gender specifications of women. It is not accepting real masculine men as well. A set of gender specific human activities is not generating stress in any society. This male hatred feminist movements are complicating the society and human sexuality as well.


HELLO, media, HELLO! I can see the light is on but is there anybody in? Is there anyone who has the guts to speak the truth and expose all this nonsense! Firstly, OK, let's have quotas then, and yes, let's include the jobs where men appear to outnumber the women, and I agree, let's tackle those jobs which are fundamental to the success of the country and can make the difference between a competitive UK or a failing one. So now we've agreed on that, we'd better make a nice long list which includes not only the nice comfy board room where you get free lunch, but also the plethora of other dirty, dangerous, unsocial, rotten jobs that men do, eh! Or doesn't that enter into the feminist remit (or David Cameron's misguided brain)! No, I didn't think so!

And when are the media going to WAKE UP and have the decency to speak the truth about unemployment figures instead of rattling off the usual boring crap about how hard women are being hit all the time! I'm mean, for crying out loud, MEDIA, WILL YOU GET A GRIP!

Helena Morriseey is proud of the fact that she has nine children and so she should be, but what would be her view if one of her sons was blocked from being on a board simply because he was her son and not her daughter.


male suicide rate is 3.2 times higher than the female one. THIS IS A STATISTIC: U CANT ARGUE WITH IT THE QUESTION IS WHY? I SUGGEST SOME REASONS THAT MEN ARE IN DESPAIR AND DEPRESSION AND CANT COPE AND ARE COMMITTING THE ULTIMATE ACT OF DESPAIR.DEATH IS THE ULTIMATE HUMILITY AND GIVES A LIE TO THE FACT THAT MEN ARE THRIVING BULLIES WHO KEEP DOWN WOMEN.IT IS very hard for a man to deal with women in situations the women are always ready to accuse them of sexual assault. It is pathetic even ugly old bags think a man is going to rape them or something.Most of the time men would rather have sex with a dog than these rat bags.
