it isn't party policy and she said she wasn't being serious when she said it. says Baroness Jones -

"I was just trying to highlight that when the police victim blame by asking women to stay home, we don't react. We just think it's normal."

Asked if this would just be inflicting on men what women have to endure, even though it is self-imposed, she replied: "Exactly. That's my exact point."

so there's no need to panic that someone was being facetious in the House of Commons; if anyone watches Parliament on YouTube you'd know it's not unusual to do so. tbh not sure how this made the news when there were like 5 people in the House that night, but guess cuz it's in relation to Sarah Everard missing person/murder case and its public interest.

Just usual right wing outrage culture.

MSP Hannah Bardell has also suggested the 6pm curfew for men: https://www.thenational.scot/news/19...omen-murdered/.

I think there may be some merit to this idea. If it helps women feel safer on the streets then it is worth considering.

Indeed! But there are three posters who voted yes... Guess who is one of them!!

By the way, good morning Mr Burton!!
I have heard from you for a long time now...

I don't understand what is the problem with the curfew of men after 6pm?? Or even earlier... Men are posing serious threats to our society. Not all are violent, aggressive, nasty, and having the potential of breaking the law or be really violent against women, but men are men and we all know what are they capable of doing..

So do you agree, and how enforcable will it be?
It's not enforceable because who would police it, and I mean that literally? Male police officers couldn't be on the streets to watch over women, not that the latter would have anything to go out for because there'd be no male bus or taxi drivers, and those who use public transport to get to and from work after 6pm wouldn't be able to do so, and those who drive or get a lift couldnt walk fron where they park their cars. Hence no late shopping, cinema, theatre, bars, gyms, restaurants, after-school clubs, uniformed organisations, hobby and interest meetings, family dinners.

Worse than any lockdown we've had!

That's why we need many more female police officers, female bus drivers, female taxi drivers, etc.

Forget about men. It's a menace to our society.

Nothing left wing about these idoits, the green party are just a bunch of clowns plain and simple. Nothing left wing about knee jerk nonsense like this.
