Despite the BBC devoting hours of coverage to the England Women's Football Team's attempt to prove they are as rubbish as the men, the Culture Minister is outraged by men only golf clubs and John Inverdale:

Maria Miller attacks BBC over sexist sports coverage - Telegraph

Inverdale's crime was to suggest that Bartoli wasn't as good looking as Sharapova (who herself can look strangely like Boris Yeltsin in some photographs), a crime which is clearly on a par with the Holocaust. He could have also noted that, when Pat Cash famously sprang into the crowd and climbed up to see his family, he did so with the speed and agility of a mountain goat, whereas Ms Bartoli's efforts made the Wimbledon terracing look like the Hillary Step.

I find it life-affirming that such a vacuous buttinski and Politically Correct shill as Ms Millar is outraged over trivia and happy to make a fool of herself. I wondered if people had other examples of sexism in sport and culture which could feed the fires of her outrage to the point where she is so overwhelmed that she has to take refuge in a mirrorless room with a bar of chocolate, the collected works of Germaine Greer and chronically low self esteem?

Reckon he knows....since he is reading it.

I do however support the minister's view of encouraging women to take up sport...

Has Ms Millar found out yet that girly women types only play a best of 3 Sets whereas men play 5?

Quality, another roundabouty Politician

Wiki said:
In May 2012 she urged the Prime Minister to continue with proposals to introduce same-sex marriage in England and Wales, despite either voting against or being absent for "all major LGBT rights votes" since becoming an MP.
Oops, she's been tarnised with the expenses brush too

Wiki said:
In December 2012 it was reported that, between 2005 and 2009, Miller had claimed over £90,000 in parliamentary expenses for the mortgage and upkeep of a house in south London where her parents lived.[SUP][7][/SUP][SUP][8][/SUP] She was subsequently reported to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards[SUP][9][/SUP] and an inquiry launched into the claims.[SUP][8][/SUP][SUP][10][/SUP] Miller responded to the reports by stating that her "financial arrangements" had been audited on two occasions since she became an MP and no issues had been found with them[SUP][7][/SUP][SUP][11][/SUP] and that her parents lived with her as "dependents" under Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority rules.[SUP][12][/SUP]
On 12 December it was reported that during a telephone call to The Daily Telegraph David Cameron's spokesman Craig Oliver had warned the newspaper against running a critical story concerning Miller's expenses because of her role in enacting proposals in the Leveson report.[SUP][13][/SUP] Downing Street denied that any threats were made.[SUP][14][/SUP]

She's doing herself and her sex no favours. An obvious ploy to attract attention after being reported on as the Minister (and Department) most likely to go in the next reshuffle; she ends up looking like a bit of a tit for making a mountain out of a molehill, and on an issue which is none of her damned business anyway. If she wants to shriek about sexism in sport reporting, she should angrily ask the TV stations why there are so many women (and wimmin) reporting on those sports which are and have always been very heavily dominated by men.

Someone in the Westminster village proving that:

-- They would rather come up with a soundbite to get on the news instead of concentrating on the essentials of their job. The BBC have already reprimanded the presenter involved, so there was no need to stick her oar in.

-- Another minister doesn't realise the only way that you get things done is concentrate on the essentials and ignore the minor things.

She's actually had a career outside of politics and should have known better...

Maria Miller - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

She joined Greys Advertising Ltd as an advertising executive, leaving in 1990 to become a marketing manager with Texaco. She rejoined Greys in 1994 and served for five years as a director, before becoming a director for the Rowland Group in 1999 for four years.
... so obviously couldn't resist the temptation to open her trap in the hopes of getting on the news.

There seems to be some outrage about somebody being outraged.

A bit get-creases-out-of-clothes-ic.

Serves Inverdale right. The turd coloured, no neck, waffling prat gets paid handsomely for presenting twee nonsense.

He should get a proper job. So should Miller.

As the condition worsens, they go completely doolally tap and start writing this sort of stuff:

“The ultimate sexist put-down: the prick which lies down on the job. The ultimate weapon in the war between the sexes: the limp prick. The banner of the enemy's encampment: the prick at half-mast. The symbol of the apocalypse: the atomic warhead prick which self-destructs. Thatwas the basic inequity which could never be righted: not that the male had a wonderful added attraction called a penis, but that the female had a wonderful all-weather ****. Neither storm nor sleet nor dark of night could faze it. It was always there, always ready. Quite terrifying, when you think about it. No wonder men hated women. No wonder they invented the myth of female inadequacy.”
― Erica Jong, Fear of Flying

Pure Mumsnet - and what on earth is an "all-weather c**t"?

Apparently she's also boycotting the Open Golf having taken offence at the club's legal membership policy. Catering profits will surely plummet, particularly if the Scottish dwarf boycotts as well.

That's one way of avoiding the ghastly baggage, and the equally ghastly Wee Eck - those who support the policy will feel vindicated and now have an unshakeable argument if the question arises at future committee meetings.
