PEOPLE SEEK DATING ADVICE FROM BORIS JOHNSON

Last Wednesday London played host to the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIFE). And we were a pretty shitty host at that, no thanks to Boris Johnson. During the event, held at City Hall, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razack discussed a promising progression. He declared that, after a recent University intake assessment, it’s apparent 68% of entries will be woman. This is totally a big deal considering Malaysia is a prominently Muslim country. Of course, Johnson was at hand to dish out a bumbling quip. The Mayor remarked that the reason female students attended University was to find men to marry. Surprisingly there was a lack of outrage and his comments were mostly received with laughter.

As a result female graduates took to twitter to seek some dating advice from the cartoonish persona. One person tweeting ‘I went to University twice and still don’t have a husband, is it because I studied Science?’ Another remarked ‘Hey Boris, I’ve managed to finish my degree with a first but no husband, can you give me some dating advice?’ You go girls. This isn’t the first time Boris has faced sexism accusations –  we all know the guy’s got quite a collection of distasteful remarks under his belt. But hey, buffoonery excuses casual sexism, right?
