God(frey) Is A Yorkshireman

by | 21st, July 2004

‘FROM Geoffrey Boycott to the county’s own Ripper, Yorkshire has long been less than a haven for womankind.

A champion of women

And now, adding to their misery is Godfrey Bloom, the UKIP MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, who has been waxing lyrical about the place of women in society.

Taking his seat on the European Parliament’s women’s rights committee, Bloom decided to share his views on his chosen specialist subject with the Mail.

‘I am here to represent Yorkshire women who always have dinner on the table when you get home,’ said Bloom. ‘I am going to promote men’s rights.’

He also said that he wanted to deal with women’s rights too because ‘I just don’t think they clean behind the fridge enough’.

Something of an odd comment from Mr Bloom, and it makes us wonder if his ‘fridge’ is a euphemism for some secret, dare it be said, perverted behaviour he likes his ladyfolk to engage in.

Things become murkier still when we learn, via the Express, that Bloom’s wife Katie is a horse physiotherapist and that the ‘fridge remark was a family joke that would have his wife roaring with laughter’.

Indeed, the Express thinks the MEP’s comments might be ‘funny’ to more than himself and his wife, and invites its readers to spend a British 25p calling one number to say ‘Yes’ they are funny or another to say ‘No’ they are not.

The results will be in tomorrow, when we will discover if the EU is not only taking away our right to use wives as a live-in skivy but eroding our great British sense of humour as well…’
