Lord Mayor walks out of Islamic charity lunch after his lady consort was told she had to sit downstairs at the event

A Lord Mayor walked out of an Islamic charity lunch after discovering that he would have to be segregated from his female consort.
Labour councillor John Thomas, 70, arrived at the function last Sunday with consort Margaret Corley, 72.

But Councillor Thomas, the Lord Mayor of Leicester, was said to be upset at being told he would have to dine in an upstairs function room with male guests, while his consort would be seated downstairs with the other women.

    Funny, never will they take sole responsibility for being wrong. It’s either not their fault or a misunderstanding.
    Good for Lord Mayor for leaving.

      Supremacists are never wrong.

    • Funny that;)

    Misogyny? Normative Islam, rather than an aberration. Kafirs have half the value of Muslim males and kafir women have one-quarter the value of Muslim males.
    No you know.

    Good for the Lord Mayor. More of this kind of action is needed. He took his Consort, his John Thomas, and left.

    Welcome to Islamic equality. Where all women are treated badly.

    Slowly some of the politicians in the UK are starting to understand what’s in store as they proceed along the paths they have recently taken.

    The Lord Mayor of Leicester must have broad shoulders and a keen sense of smell.

    Pity there aren’t more British politicians like him these days, instead of the corrupt, spineless vote whoring perverts who now infest what once was an honourable, if often low paid and thankless occupation.

    “A source said he had ‘insulted’ other guests by walking out early”

    Heads, the “guests” will call for beheading. Tails, stoning.

    The Lord Mayor walked out when he realized his consort would be segrerated from him at the lunch. Good for him. May I ask why in Canada Justin Trudeau went to the mosques alone? Did he know this might happen? Suppose Justin Trudea took his wife to an event like this, what might have happened? We have seen his mother Margaret wear the head covering, would his wife? And would she agree to be seated only with women, which in my Canada is an insult. I wonder. How many Muslim votes is Trudeau going for? I think he should take his wife to the next Muslim gathering.

      Thanks for pointing that out.

    The Lord Mayor is getting attention because he stood up like a man and said NO to segregation. I wonder how many spineless politicians bowed down to Islam and said Yes.

      Too many if their was even one that did.

    Good man – clearly a Lord Mayor with real balls!!
