Ladies and gentleman, Ms Karen Brady
After this week’s furore, when men paid £1.7 million a year for saying words out of their mouth about football unveiled a charming ‘lads mag’ sexism – my favourite type of sexism as it happens – Karen Brady has made a perfectly pitched rebuttal to Richard Keys’. ”Perhaps Richard thought I was too busy making the tea and washing up to take his call but a cursory glance at the weekend’s newspapers or television would have made him well aware that I was heavily occupied with the West Ham and Newham Council Olympic Stadium bid.”
“West Ham’s future in the Olympic Stadium is of far more significance to me than his future. It is most unfortunate that he has chosen to add insult to injury today by suggesting that this incident has done me a favour by getting West Ham out of the press, as after all I did not ask to be part of his sexist tirade.
“This is not about an apology to me, but about an apology to all women. Richard represents views that myself and those who work in the business of football find totally dinosaur.”
