Nanny Bans "Darling"
Today, in case you didn't know, is International Women's Day (it is also British Pie Week!).
In keeping with such, Euro Nanny has today decreed that wolf-whistles or calling someone 'darling' is now a crime which may get you arrested (according to Julia Gray anyway).
The ladies in my local market refer to me as "darling".
Are they committing a crime?
Anyhoo Cameron will today sign up to new laws in the Council of Europe's convention on violence against women.
Julia Gray, founder of the London branch of anti street harassment group Hollaback, rather trivialises the issue of violence (thus undermining the intended impact of the legalisation) and is quoted in the Guardian:
'The way we see it is if you want to tackle it you tackle all of it – you say no to all forms of unwanted sexual harassment; that includes wolf-whistling, comments, everything.'
Lucky that Charlie Drake isn't still around then!
