caroline lucas calls for all-female emergency cabinet 09:07 - Aug 12 with 3897 viewslowhouseblue

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49314840

her alternative ideas are an emergency cabinet in which no one has a beard or an emergency cabinet in which no one has an allotment.

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

I hope I'm using this term in the right way but seems like peak virtue-signalling.

She, as prominent part of the opposition to Brexit, needs to be talking to all likeminded people and coming up with proper solutions, not promoting pointless division over a topic that isn't really linked to the issue at hand in any way.

Big own goal for her there.

I like the fact its basically a white supremacist cabinet. I love the fact Lewis calls her out on this and she goes "Oh yes we need some blacks too!!!!"

As a white woman in her early 20s, I can see absolutely no problem with this.

she is, in a fairly odd way, responding to the dilemma facing remainer mps. their only way of blocking a hard brexit is a government of national unity. but no one else will join a gnu if it has corbyn in it and corbyn won't back it if he doesn't lead it. therefore how do you form a corbynless gnu?

I don't know but I will tell you how you don't form a government of unity and that's by automatically excluding 68% of MPs from being a part of it ...

It's not exactly representative of the population at large is it.

It's a very odd idea, hard to see how she could justify it as being any better than the old days of entirely white male cabinets.

Huge own goal for me.

I really can't understand the thinking behind it. And even from a political point of view, she had to have known how it would go down.

I find this quote odd:

“Why women? Because I believe women have shown they can bring a different perspective to crises, are able to reach out to those they disagree with and cooperate to find solutions."

She knows we’ve had Theresa May as PM negotiating brexit and utterly failing on all those counts, doesn’t she?

Agreed.

If one were cynical then the conclusion that she sees it as her chance to grab a bit of power might arise and perhaps she thinks that going down this route would make it more likely.

It certainly won't though, if anything it'll have the opposite effect.

Thatcher was known for being extremely collaborative and tolerant of others' views.

Then again, she wasn't actually human.

When people say stuff like this, it tells you one of two things:

a) they are frighteningly out of touch and a bit stupid, or
b) they are under pressure to say something stupid like this

This is how you get the public to accept something they might otherwise resist.

So, instead of this:

A:Let's allow all night drinking and live music in pubs at weekends.
B: Never going to happen! Antisocial. Too much noise.

You get this:

A: Let's introduce all night drinking and live music in pubs at weekends for white, heterosexuals only.
B: Shocking discrimination! What about the LGBTQ++ community too?
C: And BAME!
A: Crikey, I hadn't thought about BAME.
B: Exactly! Wake up and get with the times. There should be late night drinking and live music for everyone! We're a modern all inclusive country.
A: All right then. I suppose so.
