Repulsive Maria Miller

Although it may seem that Grumpy picks on women for criticism, this is not the case. They are in most cases perfectly capable of selecting themselves for comment. One time darling of David Cameron, Maria Miller recently  (16.10.2018) called for John Bercow to resign as Speaker over claims of wide spread bullying in the Westminster bubble, on the grounds that as ‘Chief Officer’ he should  presumably do the professional thing  and accept moral responsibility for  events by proxy.

This is the very same  Maria Miller, who after misappropriating tax payers money via expenses in 2014 to enrich herself and her family, refused calls for her to resign on the basis that she should take responsibility for these direct immoral, if not fraudulent, activities.

However,  she chose not to resign until political and public pressure forced her out after a grudging 30 second non-apology  ‘apology’ in the House. Such is the nature of the person that she was probably enraged by the injustice of it all.

Miller is Chair of a group of harpies, aka the Women and Equalities Select Committee. The problem with such groupings is that to justify their very existence they have to find evidence of malign wrong doings to maintain their sinecure (for such it is). It is hard to imagine them producing a report which concludes that, by and large, equality abounds, and that women are universally respected and well treated (nay, even privileged with token appointments and other  benefits of the supposedly oppressed).

This is  common structural flaw of all such single interest oversight groups.  [Grumpy hardly dare venture that he sometimes suspects that the daddy of all such groups, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, suffers from the same syndrome. The simple fact is that  should democracy ever be extended to  the community of Meleagris Gallopavo (aka domestic Turkey) it’s a safe bet that they would not vote for Christmas. So it is with parliamentary committees.]

I thus urge Mr Bercow to ignore these siren calls from this attention seeking Harridan who clearly does not have a shred of integrity, and who should be squirming with the weight of hypocrisy from her actions.  Sadly, however,  it is the nature of such people that they sleep easily  at night.
