No, I had never heard of her either but apparently she is a Green party peer sitting in the House of Lords. That means that you and I, dirty taxpaying oiks, have to pony up for her three hundred quid a day fees. Before becoming a career politician, Jones was an archaeologist studying carbonised plant remains which should suit her well as she now sits surrounded by ancient vegetables.
Yesterday in a debate on domestic violence, Jones stated that:
“In the week that Sarah Everard was abducted and, we suppose, killed—because remains have been found in a woodland in Kent — I argue that, at the next opportunity for any Bill that is appropriate, I might put in an amendment to create a curfew for men on the streets after 6 pm. I feel this would make women a lot safer, and discrimination of all kinds would be lessened.’
Having to pay £300 a day for lunatics like this is another reason to scrap the second chamber.
Incidentally, I note that Baroness Jones also supports gender self identification. So, in the unlikely event that this crackpot sees her ideas put into effect and if you fancy, as a natural born man, going out after dark, just go ahead. If stopped, just state that you are off to compete in a women’s track and field contest and anyone challenging you is a bigot. So there.
