UK Prime Minister Slammed After Being Recorded Mocking Politician

British PM Slammed for Making Fun of Politician

( – British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was heard in a recording mocking the leader of a minority party over his position on transgender rights. The recording was later leaked to the pro-trans newspaper Pink News. Sunak joked about Ed Davey, leader of the Liberal Democrats, who says that a woman can have a male genital organ. The Prime Minister, who is keen to mandate education in mathematics until the age of 18, said to his guests, “You’ll all know that I’m a big fan of everybody studying maths to 18, but it turns out that we need to focus on biology to 18.”

The British left-wing press reported on the video of Sunak, with critics accusing him of making fun of trans people and discriminating against them in contradiction of his own government’s laws. A spokeswoman for the Prime Minister however said he made a joke about Ed Davey, not transgendered people.

The trans issue is a highly debated one in the UK, as it is in the United States. Sunak’s government recently issued guidelines to schools saying teachers must inform parents if their children express a new “gender identity,” and parental consent will be required for the school to consider changing uniforms or pronouns. Schools will also be permitted to refuse admission to a trans applicant.

The Prime Minister’s position on the trans issue has caused potentially serious constitutional problems in the United Kingdom. When the devolved government of Scotland voted to allow self-ID in that country, Sunak used his constitutional power as leader of the United Kingdom to block the Scottish legislation – the first time a UK leader has done so.

Scotland sought to allow men to identify as women simply by saying so. This would give them access to women’s facilities. The issue exploded when a convicted rapist transitioned and was housed in a female prison. Protests by women’s groups erupted and the rapist was moved. The outcry prompted Sunak to step in. The issue will be settled in the Kingdom’s courts.
