Formerly intelligent stargazer Sir Patrick Moore has today managed to insult half the population of this little planet by claiming that cookery, housekeeping and kitchen-sink drama should be used as "training videos" for the modern woman.
He also expressed his opinion that separate TV channels for men should be considered, presumably showing porn, drinking, farting and how to attempt basic DIY.
Sir patrick also mentioned that he used to watch Sci-Fi until they became politically correct by employing women in top roles such as commanders.
A BBC spokesman laughed uncomfortably before commenting, "Ha ha ha, what a lovable old rogue!"
Perhaps Sir Patrick is correct, women should stick to lesser roles such as which house to buy, how to rear the children well and how to budget for a household while juggling childcare with a top job, while men should take on the greater decisions in life such as how the country would be run if they were in charge and who should go through to the premiership and why.
Sir Patrick was unavailable for comment today, having assumed that only men would be capable of reading his article.
