'it is just this Julia Slingo woman who made this absurd statement' Lord Lawson on Chief Scientist at the Met Office #everydaysexism. I'm beyond words...again

Really?? What a dick. I was really chuffed when I realised the Met Office's Chief Scientist is a woman.

Yep, I read that too. it kind of sums up the Lords in my opinion.

THIS woman - is proud to have THAT woman as a representative

Last week, Cameron was criticised for not having many women in Cabinet. Yesterday, he surrounded himself at PMQs with women.

Sexism is alive and well in Westminster.

That's Dame Slingo to you, Lord Lawson.
Wonder if she chuntered to anyone who would listen about his economic policy when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer? No, thought not. She was busy concentrating on being an expert in her own field.
