If Boris Johnson is a feminist then I went to Eton, says Labour MP Jess Phillips

LABOUR MP Jess Phillips has mocked Boris Johnson’s claim that he is a feminist.

Mr Johnson was one of seven Tory leadership hopefuls who told The Guardian they were feminists after Dominic Raab said he ‘probably wasn’t’ one.

Ms Phillips said: ‘If Boris Johnson is a feminist, then I went to Eton.’ She said feminism was about action. ‘What the hell has Boris ever done for the rights of women? (He) called loads of women where I live “letterboxes”,’ she said. ‘It is racist and sexist and he has done nothing to talk to Muslim women about the reasons that they do anything.’

In 2011, Mr Raab said men got a ‘raw deal’ and feminists were ‘obnoxious bigots’.

On Mr Raab, Ms Phillips said: ‘The feeling is mutual.’
