Don’t let UKIP take us backwards

Labour Party

It’s truly shameful to see yet another women belittling comment from UKIP at last week’s plenary session in Strasbourg.

Stuart Agnew seems to have taken up where his colleague Godfrey Bloom left off. In a debate on the gender balance among non-executive directors of quoted companies he asserted that “women don’t have the ambition to get to the top … something gets in the way. It’s called a baby”.

You can watch his intervention using the video player above and the response of Tadeusz Zwiefka MEP, and sign the @Action 2014 petition here (Don’t let UKIP take us backwards).

And here you can see a previous blog of mine about a Godfrey Bloom intervention on the same subject last July.
