I am watching Michelle Dewbury on GB News and they were talking about Ukraine. One of the panellists, Jo Phillips then talked about the foreign secretary, Liz Truss and, yes, she did make a faux pas but then went on to call her a barbie doll, who has a different outfit on every day. Another panellist, Alex Deane said “would you have said that if the foreign secretary was a man?” but that conveniently fell on deaf ears.
If a man had said that about a woman, he would have been accused of being misogynist and sexist; he would never have appeared on television AGAIN but, because it was a woman saying it, it is just brushed aside.
Michelle, to her credit, was reeling, Alex Deane was gobsmacked and I could not believe that a supposedly objective panellist, which she is clearly not, could even say such a thing
