The country’s most senior judge has declared that gender-neutral toilets should not cause controversy because they have always been used in France.
Does he need an atlas? Does he know where he is?
But no, of course not. This is just another opportunity for the old duffer to sneer at the peasantry…
…the Lord Chief Justice has no problem with gender-neutral toilets, saying yesterday: ‘Have you travelled much in Europe, for example?
‘I mean, unisex loos in France have been my experience ever since I was a small boy, so I do not think there is any jumping of the gun.’
So you silly women clucking over your loss of female-only spaces will just jolly well get used to it, wot?
The condescension fairly drips from the page – does this bewigged fool have no self-awareness whatsoever?
Lord Burnett said he had not taken any part in the decision to introduce the gender-neutral facilities in the Victorian court buildings in central London.
‘I am afraid there are many things about the world of the courts that I know quite a lot about,’ he said.
‘But the details of the lavatorial arrangements in our court buildings, I have to confess are something that I have never encountered and never given a moment’s thought to – nor have I been involved in, forgive me.’
So I guess he’s fine with all the latest woke ideas and gender activist pandering?
The idea that judges who preside over courts should also be referred to by gender- neutral titles – rather than as Lord Justice, Lady Justice or Mr or Mrs – was dismissed by Lord Burnett.
Ah. Thought not.
