Female Politicians - why are they so horrible?

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by headgear, Oct 19, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was watching Question time last night which was from Glasgow and they had on the Scottish Tory (Ruth Davidson) & Labour(Margaret Curran) leaders and SNP deputy leader (Nicola Sturgean) - all 3 woman decended into shrill arguing fisherwives, talking over each other and generally being ill disciplined and abnoxious.

    It just amazes me how few of our female politicians(Westminster too) are able to present themselves as reasonable, well balanced individuals. They all seem to wear the same uniforms, ah la Margaret Thatcher, sport the same gipping hairstyle, try to act tougher than theirmale counterparts and generally make me want to switch the tv off when they re in mid speech.

    It seems to be something to do with politics attracting that sort of woman - I'm not saying the men are any better as politician, just that the woman seem to particularly stick out as being what I would call 'dangerous'. Harriet Harman and Theresa May are also perfect examples of how it can go so wrong. I don't have a solution for them but their antics do not foster any confidence in me and just switch me off even more from politics.

  2. A hot babe wouldn't be taken seriously as a political figure.

    It's as simple as that.

  3. This is Thailand's:

    But she's as useless as a chocolate teapot because she's just fronting for her brother who is in exile - at the moment.
  4. Aye but doesn't the whiny Voice do your head in? The Politician that really makes my Dick Itch is Harridan Harperson. I've broken electrical equipment in the dash to turn the ******* thing off the minute I hear that man hating Bitch.

  6. What's the Uniform? Thai Navy? I guess that for Women the Thai Forces aren't conscript. Good on her for serving.
  7. At least she can probably pronounce "hyperbole" and "tenets". Our's says "hyperbowl" and "tenants". Oh, and apparently we have a problem in Afghanistan with some chaps known as the "Taliband". This from an ex-lawyer by the way.
  8. Oh and there was me thinking what a good MP Ms ChickenBalti of Liberty would make. Or fighter for justice Doreen Lawrence (SWP ?)

    "On the issue of right wing group mutual animosity with the IRA supportive Socialist Workers Party the honourable members for Harpingon and Carpingon will now make statements explaining why this history was filed under the category institutionalized racism"
  9. Nothing so adventurous, unfortunately. All Thai civil servants, including teachers, and politicians wear military style uniforms on formal occasions. Teachers actually wear uniforms every day in the classrooms. They also all have cardboard pinned on medal ribbons and an enormous number appear to have earned para wings!! Right!

    Can we change the title of this thread to "Female Politicians - why are they so likeable?"

    This would reduce a long list of reasons as to why they are so horrible to a standard response of "I can't think of any reasons why they are likeable", thus saving considerable effort in typing.

  12. Women are not the problem. The problem is the type of person who is in politics. MP's are chosen now because they tick the boxes of the parties. Bland middle management apparatchiks.
    We are being screwed by ambitious mediocrity.
