    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?

  2. Is she equally outraged about wimmin only clubs and activities?


    Thought not.

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

  9. 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

    Oops, she's been tarnised with the expenses brush too

  11. 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...

    ... so obviously couldn't resist the temptation to open her trap in the hopes of getting on the news.
