The Christmas Message WE Would Like to See


Here is the Queen's speech that I would like to see this year.

WE wish you a very merry Christmas and a jolly happy New Year. And I'm letting you in on a little tiny secret: what I'm getting the family.

Now, really I thought they have pretty much everything... and then I thought, I know, something radical, something brand new, something no one has ever tried anywhere in the world - equality. Isn't that a wonderful idea? Can you just imagine? Wverybody - men, women, children, everybody! - getting on better and being happier because they've all got equality.

So that is the gift that everybody is going to be opening from me this year - and WE wish you you a merry Christmas. And when I say WE, I am of course referring to the Women's Equality Party.

Give equality this year!

Here's how poor we are as a party... I didn't have money for a crown, but we did have a collection bucket, and I'm going to use that as my crown. It doesn't fit very well, and probably ought to have money in it...

From us at the Women's Equality Party: Bring it on, equality for 2016!
