The start of something?


The left, the Labour party : Harriet Harman (Shadow Deputy Prime Minister)

Harman co-authored a 1990 IPPR report “The Family Way” which stated “it cannot be assumed that men are bound to be an asset to family life or that the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social cohesion”.[35][36] In May 2008 an interview she gave to think tank Civitas Harman stated that there was “no ideal type of household in which to bring up children”

(emphasis mine)

The right, the Conservative party : Theresa May Prospective replacement for Dave, unemcumbered by a penis (it seems to be her USP, no other occurs to me)

Husbands who keep their wives downtrodden could face prison under new plans set out by the Government today.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, published proposals for a new offence of “domestic abuse” that would criminalise men or women who bully, cause psychological harm or deny money to their partners.
The law would make the worst cases of non-violent “controlling behaviour” a jailable offence.
Exact terms of the offence are yet to be defined, but it could involve humiliating, frightening or intimidating a partner, keeping them away from friends or family or restricting their access to money.

(emphasis mine)
Even the journalist knew to which sex this was primarily to be used against.

Perhaps, the result : UKIP has more male than female voters in Rochester and Strood

Kirkup’s choice of expression reveals a great deal of the long-term political and media class bias in favour of emphasising the female vote over the male. As I have written previously, this is in no small part due to the dismal and somewhat condescending “market segmentation” approach to politics: more women vote than men, and women are more likely to be floating voters, hence the greater importance of the female “segment” (all of whom think the same way, naturally).

That an increasing number of voters, mostly men, were steadily becoming alienated from the political process and refused to vote entirely may have been thought a worrying phenomenon worthy of examination, but not for careerists whose main concern was to get through the next election intact. A second reason for this obsession with the “female vote” could very well be that it is just another facet of metropolitan liberal culture (to which, sadly, even The Daily Telegraph is now a paid up subscriber), with its lionisation of all things feminine and it’s contempt for traditional masculinity (a subject for a future post).

Nigel Farage explains the male bias in voting intentions towards his party as due to the greater caution of women towards the new and untried. There may be some truth in that, but a much more interesting hypothesis is that Ukip is attracting men alienated from our feminised and misandrist society into re-engaging with the political process: it is, after all, claimed that a substantial number of Ukip voters are those in recent elections who have not voted at all.

(emphasis mine)

Both main stream politicial parties are enthusiastically trampling the interests of men in order to appeal to the female herd vote. Over recent years there have been repeated proclamations that Dave Cameron has a ‘woman problem’. Not enough female MPs (only female tory candidates were offered for the Rochester – very few people voted in that election for candidate for the by-election. She then lost for whatever reason(s)). Not enough females in the Cabinet (inner circle of government – he sacked/moved a couple of capable guys in order to promote women based on their…? what? lack of penis?).

As I’ve said in comments a few times, it’s not that UKIP has been saying much pro-male stuff (I haven’t heard anything, though I admit I haven’t looked), but they haven’t been saying anti-male stuff. It seems that even that is enough to get men to consider voting for them instead of not voting at all (Nige’s point that women are slower to try something new is valid though). The Rochester voting pattern reflects men’s perception of the long term level of misandry in the parties.

The latest Tory misandry regarding ‘bullying husbands’ came out after the by-election. I would expect a further erosion of male support for the Tories as a result. As more men wake up to the red-pill, I would expect this effect to become more pronounced. Perhaps accompanied by a similar effect in the voting patterns of married/unmarried women. Women who more identify their interests with those of their man (their son, even? or is that too much to believe?)

“lionisation of all things feminine and it’s contempt for traditional masculinity (a subject for a future post)”
I look forward to that post.

In the mean time, if you don’t care for UKIP, there’s always the Official Monster Raving Loony Party. Why vote Loony> because as a guy, voting for them makes more sense than empowering the misandric sociopaths in the other parties. Voting UKIP sends a stronger message, but there are issues to be addressed there unless you’re entirely voting for them as a protest? (a viable course of action. UKIP cannot form the next government absent increased effort by the main stream parties…hint, hint guys).

    Wow, changes may be on the horizon for my brothers in the UK, it seems.

    Question: Although the author does indeed sound as though they realize that this DV law will be used against male spouses more (probably overwhelmingly so), the actual language of it appears neutral. Is there any hope at all that it would be enacted in the way it’s supposedly intended?

    Hi Tarn,
    “any hope at all that it would be enacted in the way it’s supposedly intended?”
    much as VAWA isn’t?

    don’t think so. there will be:
    a) more tendency to prosecute men
    b) less tendency to convict women
    c) legally required sentencing discount for women convicted of this crime

    Really quite impressed by ‘Conservative Woman’
    Kimberly Ross: Women are not held back by men or marriage. The natural progression of life explains much

    “Nature discriminates from day one. Despite any effort to level the playing field of gender differences, the natural qualities that make women unlike men (and vice versa) are there for an established purpose. We may flail about in reaction to these truths, but they remain.

    Workplace concerns for women, as they relate to equal pay, career advancement, and the like, are prominent topics in social justice rhetoric. Although discussion on the wage gap issue persists, most dialogue, as Christina Hoff Summers pointed out, “does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure, or hours worked per week.” If the pay gap is not something directly relatable to discrimination, then blame for waning career advancement, also subject to similar influences, must be explained other ways as well.”

    Dear Fuzzie, I went-a-googling after your excellent provocative question

    Non-human electoral candidates
    Examples

  13. Boston Curtis, a brown mule, was offered as a candidate for a Republican precinct seat in Milton, Washington in 1938, winning 52 to zero.[1][2]
  14. Cacareco, a rhinoceros at the São Paulo zoo, was a candidate for the 1958 city council elections with the intention of protesting against political corruption.[3] Electoral officials did not accept Cacareco’s candidacy, but he eventually won 100,000 votes, more than any other party in that same election (which was also marked by rampant absenteeism). Today, the term “Voto Cacareco” (Cacareco vote) is commonly used to describe protest votes in Brazil. Cacareco’s candidacy inspired the Rhinoceros Party of Canada, nominally led by the rhinoceros Cornelius the First.
  15. In 1967, an Ecuadorian foot powder company advertised its product, Pulvapies, as a mayoral candidate in the town of Picoazá. Surprisingly, the foot powder won by a clear majority.[4]
  16. Pigasus the Immortal, a boar hog that the Yippies nominated as a candidate in the U.S. presidential election, 1968.
    Colossus the Gorilla, the main attraction at Benson’s Wild Animal Farm in Hudson, New Hampshire, failed to be put on the ballot in the 1980 New Hampshire Republican Presidential primary. The simian’s candidacy was promoted by Benson’s, but the zoo’s argument that the U.S. Constitution does not specify that a native-born candidate for the presidency had to be human was rejected.[5]
  17. Bosco the dog, a black Labrador-Rottweiler mix, was elected mayor of Sunol, California (1981-1994).[6][7]
    Morris the Cat ran as a candidate in the U.S. presidential election, 1988 and the U.S. presidential election, 1992.[8][not in citation given]
  18. In 1989, regional council boundaries were redrawn, with an emphasis on catchments being connected. These revised maps made Whangamomona, NZ part of the Manawatu-Wanganui Region. Residents wanted to continue to be part of the Taranaki Region, and on 1 November 1989, they responded by declaring themselves the “Republic of Whangamomona” at the first Republic Day. At every Republic Day, they vote to either keep the seating President or to vote in a new one. Since 1999, they have had Billy Gumboot the Goat (1999–2001) and Tai the Poodle (2003–2004), the current incumbent being Murt “Murtle the Turtle” Kennard (2005–Present).
  19. Tião, a bad-tempered chimpanzee, was put forward by the fictional Brazilian Banana Party (Partido Bananista Brasileiro, actually the satirical group Casseta & Planeta) as a candidate for the Rio de Janeiro mayoralty in 1988. The campaign’s slogan was “Vote monkey – get monkey” (because people were tired of voting for one platform and then seeing the elected officials implementing another one). There is no official counting (because all votes were recorded as “null”), but it’s estimated that Tião received over 400,000 votes, coming third.[9][10][11]
    Katten Mickelin (Mickelin the Cat) was the leader of the Swedish Ezenhemmer Plastic Bags and Child Rearing Utensils Party.
  20. New Zealand’s McGillicuddy Serious Party entered a goat in a local Waiheke Island election, but their attempt to have a hedgehog stand for Parliament was unsuccessful.
    Dustin the Turkey, a popular Irish television puppet received thousands of votes in the Republic of Ireland’s 1997 presidential election. Although not being an official candidate there are rumours that he came in fifth, ahead of official candidate Derek Nally.
  21. In 1997, a cat named Stubbs was elected mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska.[12]
    United States film maker Michael Moore attempted to get a potted ficus tree onto the ballot as a candidate for United States Representative in 2000.[13]
  22. Clemente, a popular comic character in Argentina, during the Argentine legislative election, 2001
    In 2001, a Dachshund called Saucisse (Sausage) was a candidate for Marseille (France) municipal elections. He won 4% of votes. Eight years later, in 2009, he participated the third season of Secret Story, the French version of Big Brother. He entered the house on Day 36. His secret is that he was a candidate at the election of Marseille Mayor. To protect his secret, he entered the house with the nickname “Secret”.
  23. In 2006, a famous prankster and street artist from Szeged, Hungary, proclaimed himself the founder of the Hungarian Double-tailed Dog Party, going as far as to place propaganda ads out on the walls of Szeged’s houses, promoting the candidate “István Nagy”, a two-tailed dog.
  24. Molly the Dog, a dachshund from Oklahoma, named as a candidate in the U.S. presidential election, 2008.[14]
    United States TV host and California councilmember Charlotte Laws had a chicken who ran for Vice President on the Bully ticket in the 2012 election.[15]
  25. Ed the Sock, a fictional sock puppet, attempted to run for the Fed-Up Party during the Canadian federal election, 2011.
  26. The Inanimate Objects Party at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute encourages write-in votes for inanimate objects, such as an inflatable whale named Arthur Galpin or a dead albino squirrel.
  27. Hank the Cat, a Maine Coon from Northern Virginia, ran against Tim Kaine and George Allen for Virginia’s Senate seat in 2012. He earned third place in the state, with nearly 7,000 votes.[16]
  28. Tuxedo Stan, a cat from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, was a mayoral candidate in the 2012 municipal elections[17] representing the Tuxedo Party, a political movement aimed to improve the welfare of felines in HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality) “because neglect isn’t working”. He has been endorsed by celebrities including Anderson Cooper.[18]
  29. Several animals in the US have been elected mayors of small towns such as Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, whose mayor is a black lab named Junior Cochran, and Lajitas, Texas, whose mayor is a beer-drinking goat named Clay Henry III. Both Rabbit Hash and Lajitas are unincorporated towns where the mayoralty is purely a ceremonial position, not an actual leader of government.
  30. Morris the cat ran for mayor in Xalapa, Mexico in 2013.[19]
    Fire Hydrant ran for election multiple times 2004-2008 at the University of British Columbia, including a position on the Board of Governors, coming within 6 votes of being elected. This was done to raise awareness of election irregularities.[20][21]
