Julia Hartley-Brewer

Postby Nikki Gradual » 02 Nov 2017, 17:46

Seeing as everything in the world ends up being all about Julia Hartley-Brewer, I just wondered what would happen (and where it would end up) if something actually started off being all about her.

You know when you watch Question Time and there's a woman on the panel who's not an MP and whose views are objectionable? If it's not Melanie Phillips it's Julia Hartley-Brewer.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Petronella ("no flies on her") Wyatt was on the Today Programme talking about all this stuff.

She said that Michael Fallon was just a disgusting person who was horrible to everyone ( :lol: ) and that her mum (married to turncoat Labour MP Woodrow Wyatt) was often chased around the kitchen table by Hugh Gaitskell but she didn't mind because he was 'very handsome' :roll:

Yes it's all the womens' fault for not having a sense of humour! :x
But of course some men - Fallon! - need to be more 'gallant'.

Where do they dig these fossils up from?

Funnily enough, an old guy where I work made almost exactly the same 'lewd' comment to a fellow worker as Michael Fallon did to Andrea Leadsom... Leadsom complained her hands were cold and I suspect Fallon said something like "I'll warm them up for you!"

Of course I didn't report the chap at work to the management - the lady just chuckled and rolled her eyes - but should I have?

Just on the basis of that? Fuck no.

If you were worried, have a word with the woman and ask if she were bothered, he's a pest. If she says yes, offer to witness that kind of remark. But I'd be surprised.

Savile got away with unbelievable abuse - then people starting making noises about very minor things.
Now Weinstein has been shown to be a serial rapist/abuser and people are now talking about remarks like that.

Come on now.

No, I want an easy life. :lol:

I do find that sort of thing embarrassing and often objectionable on the whole, it's an interesting question though, at what point is that line crossed?

I never actually considered saying anything - I just thought the timing was interesting. It was pretty much the same comment (Fallon is reported to have said “I know somewhere you can put them to warm up.”)

I suspect if I'd made a fuss everyone would have thought me a total dick including the lady at whom the comment was aimed.

Tessa Wyatt?

His wife was called Ethel according to Wikipedia.

Tessa Wyatt was married to Tony Blackburn!

That was his mother. Woodrow had four wives.-

First (div): Susan Cox, no issue. She was a fellow student at Oxford.
Second (div): Nora Robbins, no issue. She was his secretary.
Third (1957, dissolved 1966): Lady Moorea Hastings (b. 1928) daughter of the 16th Earl of Huntingdon and a granddaughter of Luisa Casati; one son: Hon. Pericles Plantagenet Wyatt.
Fourth (1966): Veronica (Verushka) Banszky von Ambroz, née Racz, a Hungarian and widow of a surgeon; one daughter: journalist Petronella Wyatt (b. 1968).

Also related to Robert Wyatt, who described him as an "appalling man with a sadistic sense of superiority".
