Scientifically a man can’t become a woman and there is nothing that gender recognition reform legislation can do about that – no more than King Canute could turn back the tide.
But speaking outside the Scottish Parliament on the 21st December, Joanna Cherry SNP MP & KC said
“and last night in the building behind me decent ordinary female citizens of this country were threatened with arrest in the public gallery”
so, you might hope, here comes Joanna to the rescue, right?
It is not just that women are threatened with arrest but that women and feminist men defending women’s rights are threatened that if we dare to resist arrest lawfully then we will suffer traumatic injury to our wrists by police using standard UK-issue rigid handcuffs
– torture instruments approved by every Queen’s & King’s HMG His/Her Majesty’s Government and Scottish Government ever since Tory Prime Minister John Major and Labour First Minister Donald Dewar.
Threatening dutiful citizens with arrest and injury is how the UK has always subjugated the people – but Joanna’s careerist selfishness as a QC & KC meant that for her, what mattered most was the monarchy, the Queen and the King, who came first, while the people and our human rights not to be injured, traumatised, terrorised into silent obedience came last in Joanna’s priorities, at least until the hopeful day she ceases to call herself a “KC”.
“particularly as a woman of the left”
“Left”? Joanna ISN’T a left-wing socialist; she’s a right-wing King’s Counsel, speaking for the King’s interests versus the people’s. Labour women should not be fooled by Joanna’s SNP Tartan Tory lies, no more than Labour Red Tory lies.
“Left” therefore meaning to Joanna kissing the left arse-cheek of the UK monarch, so to speak?
The trouble with Joanna’s and the SNP’s so-called “Plan B” is that it turns out to be another Plan A by surrendering Scotland to misrule by the UK monarchy, its King’s Counsels like Joanna and the BBC’s rigging of politics.
Here’s a link to a real Plan B for Scottish Independence – mine.
Joanna does not as she claims have “a proven record of standing up for equal rights”.
Joanna has a proven record as a Quisling, a traitor to the people – first as a Queen’s Counsel and now as a King’s Counsel standing up for the inequality of monarchy and for the rights, privileges and interests of the monarchs of the House of Windsor – first Elizabeth and now that right Charlie NotMyKing.
“we will win this fight .. why .. the women’s movement has been rejuvenated”
Joanna is complacent in that she has not confronted the dangerous misogynist enemy represented in the Scottish Parliament by Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar whose Imperial Pakistan’s Taliban recently exterminated the Afghan women’s rights.
Secret Pakistan – supported the Taliban in Afghanistan
Pakistan’s diplomats around the world are window-dressing for the ISI / Taliban’s global war on women. Diplomatic relations should be broken off with Pakistan and their embassies and consulates closed. Scots should close the Pakistani consulate in Glasgow.
“whether you are a nationalist or .. a unionist, we all want a better country”
Joanna is dangerously naive.
Although assumed to be “a unionist” Anas Sarwar supports Imperial Pakistan and he thinks that Afghanistan is a “better country” after Pakistan’s proxy Taliban takeover and presumably he also may believe that Scotland would be a “better country” after being Talibanised and women’s rights eliminated?
Beware that we can’t take any of Sarwar’s denials or claims to “support” women at face value. Lying and back-stabbing is par for the course for supporters of Imperial Pakistan.
“and the way to do that is to legislate well after a civilised debate”
Again, Joanna is hopelessly, dangerously naive.
Afghanistan’s people tried peaceful legislation but the Taliban killed Afghan legislators anyway.
Many of the younger Afghan women had gender studies degrees from a liberal university education – for the fat lot of good that did them when the Taliban came for their country.
Women need guns and a militia because nothing less will defend women’s rights.
Sarwar’s Taliban’s war against women must be defeated by military means, like a women’s militia which would replace the UK constitutional monarchy with a constitutional right for women to bear arms in a well-regulated women’s militia (so no trannies allowed 😀 ) so that never again would women be abducted, raped and murdered by the kingdom’s policemen as happened to Sarah Everard.
But Joanna Cherry as a KC, a King’s Counsel, has set her face, her career and her political reputation against replacing the constitutional monarchy with anything more democratic or more feminist.
UPDATE 9th MAY 2023
Cherry has blocked me on Twitter so I didn’t notice her tweet from last week until it was pointed out to me just now. Obviously I support this petition and would wish it all possible success but I would demand similar visas to be granted to all professional women unable to practice their profession in Afghanistan.
The fact that such visas have not already been granted highlights again how little the UK has done to help Afghan women overall since the West’s humiliating retreat from Afghanistan.
