Red Meat to the Feminists

I'm allergic to PR stunts, and the Cameron-Obama Barbecue for Cannon-Fodder seemed particularly revolting ('We sent you into an illegal war: have a saveloy'). At least Obama opposed the Iraq war, unlike Cameron.

But there was one aspect which undercuts Obama's progressive claims (Cameron doesn't have any). What's wrong with these pictures? Apart from the obvious: a Tory in Downing Street.

It's clearly deliberate: the men do the barbecuing and the women serve the salad. Real Men Don't Do Salad. Men burn meat. It's choreographed to bolster their masculine credentials in a very crude fashion.

 Ah well, blood on their hands again…
