well as a palace fan from South London attempting to become an M.P for Brighton i think he's definitely trying to amuse someone.
*She's*

On NSC for over two decades...
Izzard's preferred pronouns are she/her, not they/them.
He also isn't precious about anyone using he/him, and quite rightly so.

Nobody should attempt to dictate how people speak based on their own view of themselves. That doesn't mean people can't be accomodating though, and I hope as a society we are beyond caring how people choose to present.

sorry , is this a Brighton related forum with the main subject of its content being football....
But football isn't the subject of this thread. Are you seriously suggesting no Brighton fan should vote for Eddie based on football club issue? If so you have lost any sense of proportion.

the sentance is correct regardless of gender politics. one might say "Zamora is the best Brighton player of recent times, aren't they?", rather than "...isn't he". we mustn't hijack "they" and limit it's use in normal language. there is a dedicated pronoun for neutral, "ze", use that.

If Eddie gets selected and if she gets elected (two BIG if’s) then I hope her first job is to march into City clean Hollingdean depot and sort those lot out, I’m sure that will go down a storm😂

Totally agree. What does it matter? How many people have we met/worked with/etc that we eventually find out various parts of their life, including football club preference, and (unless they are an Always Ultra) it makes not a jot of difference? She's hardly going to do anything anti-Albion if elected!!

More recently she has said no on can really get it wrong... unless you call her Kenneth or Sabrina


Eitherway in relation to the thread Lee Anderson is a nasty peice of work, hopefully as its a closely run seat, Labour or the Ashfield Independants (despite their chequered recent events) will oust him shortly...his brand of politics is not needed. This country needs more Eddie Izzards!!
