“Just tell us you wrongly don’t care what that means and move on, you melt.”
Dominic Raab said it’s possible to mistreat both women and men in an embarrassing TV interview.
Speaking to BBC Breakfast on Wednesday, the Justice Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister said: “Misogyny is absolutely wrong, whether a man against a woman or a woman against a man.”
BBC host Sally Nugent quickly jumped into it, and read the definition of misogyny for Raab as “hatred towards women, directed at women”.
He was talking about the new investigation ordered by Home Secretary Priti Patel into how a serving police officer killed Sarah Everard.
The September trial of her killer started a national conversation about the safety of women in Britain, especially at the hands of the police.
Nugent pushed Raab later in the program to clarify what he meant by the definition of misinterpretation and asked, “Is that what you meant to say?”
But Raab did not directly address his erroneous definition and instead reiterated boris johnson claims That misogyny should not be made a hate crime.
He turned the conversation to what level of hate crime they were discussing, saying: “If we’re talking about effectively humiliation on a sexist basis then I don’t think it’s important to criminalize things like this.” will solve the problem that we have got at the heart of the Sarah Everard case.”
It focused on women’s fears that their cases would not go to court, adding: “So criminalizing only abusive language, even if it is wrong, does not deal with threats and violence and high levels of crime.” And the pitfalls and pitfalls that we should really be focusing the laser light on.”
The newly appointed Justice Secretary’s remarks on the language certainly did not go down well, especially after his own misinterpretation.
Twitter critics mocked the senior minister, asking if he was “fit for office”.
