The Tory MP Nick Fletcher blames a woman playing Doctor Who for the rise in young men committing crime


Signal to the bugle! Get your horse ready! Put on your armor! It’s time to go to culture war to distract from any practical political decisions, because your party has been in government for over ten years!

It was such a day for Nick Fletcher, Tory MP from Don Valley, who decided that so many young people weren’t committing crimes because of 11 years of conservative government cuts youth services, police and justice systembut because the imaginary time traveler on TV has boobs.

“Everywhere, not least culturally, it seems like a tiny but very loud minority is calling for a male character or good role model to have a replacement for a woman. Just look at the debate over who will play the next James Bond, ”he said, summing up his devastating conclusion:

“And it’s not just James Bond… In recent years, we’ve seen Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Luke Skywalker, the Equalizer, replaced by women. And the men stayed with the Kreis and Tommy Shelby. Is it any wonder we see so many young people committing crimes? “

Case closed, huh?

Well, first of all, James Bond is still a man.

And, of course, following Fletcher’s “logic”, centuries on this Earth before Jodie Whittaker became the Lord of Time, young people would be innocent, and young women would go on a rampage, committing the vast majority of crimes, because they had never seen they exterminated ghosts. or ending the tyranny of the Sith.

Chatterbox doesn’t need to show you crime statistics to demonstrate that this isn’t entirely true …
