TRANSGENDER cyclist Emily Bridges has become the latest person to attack the Prime Minister.
And by doing so, he may have shown him a way to win the next parliamentary election.
Boris Johnson said biological men should not compete against women in sports competitions.
This, of course, upset Bridges, who was born as a guy and claims to have received death threats after Boris’ intervention.
If that’s the case, it’s terrible and must be completely condemned.
This strange cultural war over transgenderism often becomes disgustingly personal. It should not.
Transgender people deserve as much love, respect and freedom from discrimination as everyone else in society.
But that still does not mean that a man who changes is actually a woman.
It is a denial of scientific facts.
It’s all there in the chromosomes – and the muscles and the testosterone and the bone structure. Boris was right for once.
And I’ll bet at least 90 percent of the population agrees with him on that.
This demand to have men compete against women in the sport and transgender men in women’s prisons is driven by a very loud, very shrill, small minority.
And I reckon the general public does not like it a bit.
They are on the side of Harry Potter writer JK Rowling, who also receives death threats for suggesting that a “woman” exists.
The Conservatives have been spectacularly useless in standing up for common sense in this so-called culture war.
It was during the Conservatives that more and more children were subjected to life-changing transitional treatment at the Tavistock Clinic, where the quarrel over when young people can give consent for that kind of thing goes all the way to the Court of Appeal.
It is under the conservatives that pro-trans propaganda is being fed to our children in schools.
The Conservatives have done nothing to stop the ridiculous “decolonization” of university subjects and national institutions.
All because these are sensitive issues and the Tories do not want to get into trouble.
But voters know exactly what a woman is: an adult human female, with a cervix (and often a large collection of shoes).
Transgender people deserve as much love, respect and freedom from discrimination as everyone else in society. But that still does not mean that a man who changes is actually a woman.
They do not like children being force-fed with progressive idiots by teachers who repeat the horrific Stonewall campaign organization.
They are proud of their country.
They believe in freedom of speech and the right to insult.
The voters in the seats of the red wall are particularly hot on the subject. I know – because I live in one of them. And at election time, I knock and ask them.
Labor and the meaningless Liberal Democrats are both joining all the progressive cultural war b **** ck.
So this is Boris’ chance to put clear blue water between his party and the rest.
Roll back the measures introduced that promote the cause of transgender people while discriminating against women.
Stop the freedom of speech. Tell the racists that we are proud of our country and its history, even though we have made mistakes in the past.
Take a stand on these issues.
And then maybe, just maybe, some of the deserting voters will return to the conservative fold.
AND then Boris wants us to “draw a line” under everything and move on. With almost half of the Folketing’s party against it.
First of all, I have no doubt that the BBC and ITV, which hate Boris, exaggerated the Partygate stuff.
I also have no doubt that much of the hatred against him in his own party is due to Brexit.
But he should still have gone.
Apart from everything else, that would be pretty much the only way the Tories could win the next election.
My suspicion is that he will go sooner rather than later.
Something new is coming out. It always does with Boris.
I NEVER WANT THERE IS LIFE IN THE MONARCHY YET
For a long time I have been thinking that once our queen is gone, then the monarchy will have had it.
And yet, there was a magnificent turnout for her corn platinum anniversary celebration.
It is the silent majority of this country who, for once, turn out and let their voices be heard. So maybe there is some life left in the institution yet.
I just wish we could maybe skip a generation and move on to Prince William.
He is a bit serious and not exactly stuffed to the brim with charisma.
But there is something quietly sympathetic about the guy, and he seems to take his duties seriously.
‘SHIFTY’ HUNTING IS NO PM
IF I were to make a list of people I really do not want to become Prime Minister of this country, Jeremy Hunt would definitely be in my top 20.
Somewhere between Nicola Sturgeon and Harry Maguire.
What do I dislike about him? Well, first of all, his policy.
He was a devoted remnant of Brexit.
And he is a liberal. A liberal with the same arrogance as the other flawed old liberals, Kenneth Clarke and Michael Heseltine.
He also has one of those smiles that seems to say, “I’m smiling at you right now, but look away for a moment and I’ll set your puppy on fire.”
He’s the favorite from the Tory Remainer fringes.
Let’s hope he has no chance of getting the job.
Should it ever become available.
IS the new series of Love Island run by the old white government in South Africa? It was like apartheid.
The paired pairs were strictly separated by a viewer poll. Black with black, white with white.
It was like watching a scene from Alabama in the 1950s.
Maybe they should also have separate areas for the black and white couples to eat in.
UN HAS GSOH, I GUESS
HERE is a question for you.
If the presence of Sudan, Pakistan, Libya and China in the UN Human Rights Council has not convinced you that the UN is an absurd waste of time and money, what will then?
What about the country that now holds the chairmanship of the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament?
Guess which one it is.
I bet you can do it.
Yes, North Korea.
BREEDING BY CIGS STEERING
I quit smoking last year without the big problem.
I had been at almost 60 a day for the best part of 45 years and giving up was not near as bad as I thought it would be.
But I do not regret having smoked all that time – even though it sometimes meant that strange black things came out of my lungs sometimes.
I enjoyed it.
I knew it was not good for my health, but I thought the risk was worth it.
So I have mixed feelings about this plan submitted to Health Minister Sajid Javid to raise the age where you can smoke to 21.
There are many ways we harm our health – lack of exercise, eating family packs of Doritos, getting p *** ed and so on.
And I still believe that it should be up to the individual to decide what he or she intends to do, not the government.
WAKEN UP GARETH
ENGLAND manager Gareth Southgate received much praise from his teammates in the press for his replacements in the match against Germany.
Why? All he did was pick up a player – Jack Grealish – who should have been there from the start.
I’m telling you right now: We do not want to win a tournament under that man.
And the kneeling things have become completely ridiculous.
Meanwhile, we had to endure Channel 4’s terrible coverage of the game.
It was more awake than a newborn baby at three in the morning.
Producers no longer care about what the experts on screen say and how useful they are to the audience – just as long as it is politically correct.
