    How?

    Labour, UKIP and Libs all aren't.

    And why would it be a good thing or a bad thing? It is what it is. Women really aren't that different a sort of creature to men intellectually.

    so whoever leads the Lib Dems is the last man standing

    (in case anyone didn't know: a woman is challenging Corbyn for the Labour leadership, and another woman is putting her name forward for UKIP leadership)

    I just looked into the Labour thing a bit more and seems most think Corbyn will be ousted. Interesting. Labour are so ****ed though. Bless them.

    Gender is not relevant at all. Therefore, it is not good or bad.

    I do think it's hypocritical, however, for people to regard it as a "positive thing" for most of the parties to be led by women. Is that itself not a bit sexist? Surely gender shouldn't matter at all?

    After Blair can we really trust a male PM???

    All he did was take us to war.

    You're a ****ing mug, Jesus Christ. A person's ability to lead is not confined to their gender.

    I never said "Gender makes you unable to lead."

    I think Blair had good reason to and was under great peer pressure.

    Britain is close to having all major parties led by competent leaders who are supported by their parties: the leader's does not matter.

    It's only bad if it gets the feminists all "empowered". That's when they're at their most self righteous.

    So all the wrongdoings Hitler, Stalin, Trotsky, Mussolini and Mao can be perfectly correlated to their gender?

    I know. However, the main idea you put forward was that Thatcher's poor performance resulted from her gender.
