You’d need to have a heart of stone not to laugh – until you realise you’re paying for it. A shower of upper middle class women had their appeal against Portmarnock golf club turned down by the Supreme Court yesterday. The Portmarnock club, the sexist swine, won’t allow them to become full-time members, although they are allowed to be part-time members.
Yesterday’s case was taken by the Equality Authority (EA), a quango of middle class twats that wastes no opportunity to squander taxpayers’ money. In light of the above ruling maybe the EA should have taken the advice of the great Jewish comedian Groucho Marx. Groucho insisted that he’d never join a club that would accept a person like him as a member.
Four years ago the High Court overturned a District Court decision and ruled that Portmarnock was not a discriminating club because its principal purpose was to cater for the needs of a particular gender of swine. This exemption is allowed under equal status legislation. Countless women’s clubs in this country operate as single gender clubs on this basis. It’s called freedom of association.
So will the EA be challenging these “sexist” women’s clubs? Put it another way. Will Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a copy of the Torah under his arm, be seen strolling out of a Synagogue linking arms with Benjamin Netanyahu?
Meantime, instead of accepting the above decision by the High Court, the EA, at the behest of a coven of half crazed bats – with a blank cheque provided by the taxpayer to indulge M’Lud’s and our learned friends – ran to the Supreme Court.But they lost out on a 3-2 split decision. One of the judges that ruled against them was a woman.
Has anyone any idea what the final legal bill came too? I’d say it cost the taxpayer hundreds of thousands. If a person was a cynic, he’d, allegedly, believe, reckon, maybe believe, allegedly, that there’s an elaborate, alleged, scam going on, allegedly, here.
After all, the Portmarnock Golf club is one of the most exclusive clubs in the country. It counts judges, barrister, leading politicians and assorted bastards among its members. Likewise, some of women pushing this case – using our money – could be married to, related to, rubbing shoulders with, the very barristers and judges who are hoovering our money ruling on it.
Following the decision by the Supreme Court, the EA – an organisation which is now firmly under the control of the authoritarian feminist movement in this country- why else won’t they challenge women’s clubs on the above basis ? – indicated that they may squander more taxpayers money – sure, why not? – and put the case before the Oireachtas – a shower that’s wasting taxpayers’ money by virtue of their very existence – so they can “examine” whether or not the equal status act needs to be amended.
With jaw-dropping predictability, a spokeswoman for the Equality Rights Alliance, another quango of middle class twats, said that yesterday’s decision by the highest court in the land was a bad day for equality and a bad day for women.What women would they be? How many women in this country want to join the Portmarnock golf club, or any golf club for that matter?
So hats off to the equality quangos as they go about their business of wasting taxpayers’ money in their gallant fight for freedom – the freedom of upper middle class women to waste your money trying to become full members of exclusive golf clubs that don’t want them and have a legal right to exclude them.
