Over a thousand people gathered in Shipley in solidarity with others marching against Donald Trump – and against their own MP, Philip Davies [Image: Siobhan Clibbens].

Full credit should go to the women of Shipley, who marched on Saturday in protest against their vile MP Philip Davies.

Mr Davies has gained notoriety in Parliament for reasons outlined below, and plenty of exposure on This Site as the arrogant, filibustering bigot we all know him to be.

I have often appealed to the people of Shipley to take action for their own sakes.

It seems they have decided to do so – with or without my encouragement.

In the small West Yorkshire town of Shipley, near Bradford, a contingent of self-described “Feminist Zealots” [marched] in solidarity with their American sisters past the constituency office of their local MP – the Trump supporting, feminist bete noir Philip Davies.

Around 400 people initially said they would be attending on Facebook but over 1,000 people reportedly turned out for the march when it began at 12pm.

Jenny Wilson told The Independent it [felt] like “our little march in Shipley” was part of a much bigger movement.

She said Conservative supporters were more than welcome at the event and suggested that the party should be concerned about some of the positions Mr Davies took.

Comments made by Mr Davies at the conference of the men’s rights party Justice for Men and Boys … suggested “feminist zealots wanted to have their cake and eat it”.

He said the justice system was skewed towards women at the expense of men and believed that there was “no issue between men and women” – arguing that gender inequality against women had been stirred up by militant feminists.

The Tory later became one of the only MPs to endorse Mr Trump for President, saying he would vote for the former reality star “in a heartbeat”.

In the week he was appointed to the House of Commons’ Women and Equalities Select Committee he also tried to filibuster a bill which would ratify the Istanbul convention on tackling and preventing violence against women – saying laws should protect men and women equally.
