TRANSGENDER WOMAN ABUSED IN TOILET.

A Labour councillor has claimed she suffered transphobic abuse from a fellow delegate at the Labour party conference, Councillor Patricia Hannah-Wood, of Pendle Labour Party said that she was abused by “one of our sisters in this conference hall now”.

Ms Hannah-Wood who is a transsexual woman, said “On Sunday evening I was in the loo downstairs with a few of my colleagues from the north-west when I was transphobically abused in this conference centre by one of our sisters in this conference hall now.

She continued, “It should not happen, we have got an anti-bigotry and anti-bullying policy in the Labour Party, “We need it to be enforced.”

One has to be so careful nowadays when wishing to comment on so many things, so I will attempt to tread as carefully as I can to try to put the other side of the story.

I have never seen this woman before and only heard her comments today on the television but one is forced to wonder, as she looks like a man and sounds like a man could the abuse be nothing more than another woman who entered the toilet pointing out that the men’s loos are next door, who knows?

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

  1. That seems like a reasonable question to me.
