Visitors to this blog may recall a recent post in which we nominated Quentin Letts as our favourite newspaper columnist. He’s also an interesting and entertaining broadcaster.
Some of you may be unaware that between them, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League have published online details of numerous awards presented to individuals. Until now there have been three such awards:
‘Toady’ – presented to male collaborators with feminist initiatives, e.g. Lord Davies of Abersoch – author of the odious Davies Report (2011) – FTSE100 chairmen who are members of the 30% club, a number of male MPs… and many others.
‘Maggie’ – presented to women who believe in meritocracy rather than special treatment for women in the workplace and elsewhere, e.g. Angela Epstein, Marina Yannakoudakis MEP… and a few others.
‘Harpy’ – presented to women who campaign for anti-meritocratic initiatives to give special treatment to women regardless of the consequences, e.g. Harriet Harman, Lynne Featherstone… and many others.
For some time we’ve considered introducing a fourth award, the ‘Winston’, to celebrate men who stand up for meritocracy and are willing to expose feminists (and the men who collaborate with them) for what they really are. The trouble is, so few prominent men qualify for the award. But one man clearly does, and that’s Quentin Letts. So we’re delighted to announce that Mr Letts has been offered the inaugural Winston award and has accepted it, saying he’s ‘honoured’. The award:
We’ll shortly be offering a Winston to a Conservative MP who recently made a remarkable contribution to a debate in the House of Commons. He showed more backbone in this area (detailing outrageous pro-female and anti-male discriminations) than his 300+ colleagues have collectively shown in the past ten years. More details in the next few days, hopefully.
Do let us know if you can think of any other deserving recipients of a Winston.
