Kathy Burke’s enraged anti-equality tirade: “Shouldn’t expect appreciation!”
KATHY BURKE slammed accolades for women who did “s***” work in their careers, claiming that it did not equate to equality.
The actress is noted for her blunt, no-nonsense manner, which is exemplified in her Channel 4 series, ‘Kathy Burke’s All Woman.’ She spent her time there talking to “all types of people” and examining what it meant to be a woman in the twenty-first century. Burke’s ‘Money Talks’ series, which finds Burke peering inside the doors of some of the county’s wealthiest – and poorest – homes and following people’s daily lives, follows a similar concept.
She’s said to want to “spark a debate” about money, pledging to be full of her “good natured bluntness” and willingness to ask hard questions in off-key settings.
The same may be said of her views on British politicians and contemporary societal issues.
In a 2019 interview with The Guardian, she slammed those who hailed Theresa May as Prime Minister because she was a woman for doing a good job.
When asked if she respected Mrs May “as a woman holding the country’s highest post,” Ms Burke said flatly, “I think that’s bullshit.”
“If we want equality, we shouldn’t expect to be praised just because we’re doing a certain job,” she concluded.
“That isn’t the same as equality. Equality means admitting she did a s*** job.”
Mrs May announced her decision to resign as Prime Minister following a difficult three years at this time.
Her discussions with the EU had failed, and she had faced a surge of opposition from her own party.
“I’d definitely choose Green because I’m really worried about climate change and the planet,” Ms Burke responded when asked who she would vote for in a hypothetical election.
“I’ve always been a Labour supporter.
“But, to be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about things right now.”
She went on to say about the economy, “The whole thing is a dreadful mess.”
“I have a lot of sympathy for young people; I’m not sure what they’ll do.
“They can’t afford a place to live, and they won’t be able to eat any time soon, especially if they live in London.
“Take a look at Hoxton [in east London], for example.
