Media baron calls for ban on men in public office

Men
should be banned from working in public office because they have ‘mucked it up’
too much, according to billionaire media baron Ted Turner.

The
United Nations Foundation he established six years ago, to distribute the
£600bn he pledged to UN causes, has a new female-dominated board of directors.

The
newest member of the board is Gro Harlem Brundtland, previously
director-general of the World Health Organisation and Norway’s first female
prime minister.

Turner
said if women were in control, the world would be a much more peaceful,
prosperous, equitable world in a very short period of time.

"I’ve
said for years and I’m really serious about it, I think men should be barred
from holding public office for 100 years," he said. "Men have been
running the world for too long and they’ve made a mess of it."
