Chancellor Rishi Sunak dodged the biology question in a radio interview
With transgender issues in the news, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak was asked on Thursday, “What is a woman?” The Conservative MP refused to answer directly.
“Rishi Sunak, what is a woman?” TalkRadio host Julia Hartley-Brewer asked the chancellor, to which Sunak replied, “I thought the prime minister answered this brilliantly … I fully agree with him,” referring to recent comments in parliament by PM Boris Johnson.
Asked for his own definition of the term, Sunak repeated that Johnson “answered the question brilliantly.”
“Adult human female?” Hartley-Brewer suggested, to which Sunak repeated, “I thought he put it very well.”
Julia asks the Chancellor: What is a woman?
Rishi Sunak: “The PM answered this perfectly, I agree with him.”
