The estimable Quentin Letts…

I’ve rarely enjoyed a newspaper more than today’s issue of the Daily Mail. An editorial criticises Cameron’s recent trip to the United States, stating, ‘Mr Cameron’s visit was an embarrassing exercise in posture politics – a cloying mix of fake bonhomie, tawdry PR and shared platitudes.’ In the same issue Simon Heffer’s column is perceptively critical of Dave (it usually is) and Amanda Platell’s column includes a piece about Dave’s American jaunt, titled, ‘Calling Dave a poodle is just an insult to poodles!’ Oh, and lest I forget, one of my favourite columnists and authors, Quentin Letts, has a piece accompanying a photograph of a toad, titled, ‘Is this Mr Cameron or Mr Toad?:

A former consultant to the Tory party has started a pressure group opposed to radical feminism. Mike Buchanan, founder of the Anti-Feminism League, believes David Cameron has aped the left-wing policies of Harriet Harman. Mr Buchanan is sending 33 business leaders ‘Toady’ awards – for ‘collaborating with militant feminists against the interests of the business sector and men through the “gender balance in the boardroom” ‘ initiative.

Top of his list is Mr Cameron. Others include Sir Win Bischoff of Lloyds Bank, Charlie Mayfield of John Lewis, and Sir Simon Robertson of Rolls-Royce. As a procurement executive Mr Buchanan, 54, worked for blue-chip companies and was employed by Tory HQ until 2009. He now writes full-time and his nine books include The Marriage Delusion (his second marriage failed in 2007) and Feminism: The Ugly Truth.

He argues that forcing companies to appoint female directors will lead to younger, less experienced boards. He is cagey about disclosing his exact address, saying: ‘I don’t want my house picketed by scowling 20st women in denim dungarees.’

The piece was also included in the online edition of the Mail, it’s about three-quarters of the way down the page which opens when you click on the link below:


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
