The Labour MP calling for Philip Davies MP to be sacked for addressing a men’s right’s group has attended gender segregated Muslim events and was selected to stand for parliament on a discriminatory all-woman shortlist.
Angela Rayner, the hard left, “feminist” MP for Ashton-under-Lyne failed to condemn or speak out against the blatant gender discrimination committed at a Labour Friends of Bangladesh in November last year, despite sitting in the segregated audience, as Guido Fawkes reported.

Yet, when Philip Davies, a Conservative MP, recently spoke out against men losing custody of children and higher criminal conviction rates for men, Ms. Rayner slammed him as “prehistoric” and “misogynistic”.
“Theresa May should withdraw the Tory whip from Mr. Davies and immediately suspend his membership whilst an investigation is carried out”, insisted the former care worker and Trades Unions representative.
“He has open contempt for women. His views are so out-dated they are prehistoric. He should become a figure of fun and a rich source of material for every satirist in the country”, she ranted.

Adding: “He legitimises the inflammatory and toxic rhetoric of groups who are misogynistic to their core. He should have no place in Theresa May’s Tory party.”
In her view, anyone who dissents from the feminist orthodoxy should be silenced. “There is no place for these views in modern Britain”, she concluded.
Astonishingly, her ally and Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, was quick to back the comments, also calling for Mr. Davies to be censored and reprimanded for crimes against feminism.

Mr. Corbyn has also been heavily criticised by feminists after he appointed men to all the top positions in his shadow cabinet.
However, it has also transpired that Ms. Rayner may have only got the job as an MP because she was selected on an all-woman shortlist, explicitly discriminant against men to the end of getting more women into parliament.
The legality of such list, only used by the Labour party, has been challenged several times and they were found to be illegal in 1997.
However, a Parliamentary report released this year said they are permissible according to the Sex Discrimination Act of 2002, claiming that “the Equality Act 2010 extended the period in which all-women shortlists may be used until 2030.”
