Richard Madeley clashed with a doctor on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday as they discussed housework.
Richard was hosting the ITV breakfast show with Ranvir Singh when the conversation quickly turned to housework.
Ranvir begins: “Clearly 90% of couples spend up to an hour arguing about household chores.
“The question this morning was: Do you always feel responsible for your chores at home?
“We’re asking because there’s a proposal in France to make it a criminal offense to avoid housework,” Ranvir continued.
She is referring to the suggestion of feminist Sandrine Rousseau, who says a law is needed because we have barely progressed since the 1970s.
Richard and Ranvir invited Dr. Tessa Dunlop and Aggie MacKenzie into the studio to debate the topic, but it wasn’t long before Richard mocked one of them.
Laughing as he introduced Dr. Dunlop, she quickly replied: “Well, Richard can laugh, but will you take the mop?”
“I share mine, I won’t go into details,” Richard replied, referring to his own efforts at housework.
“I’m sorry, let’s interrupt the chase here, we’re talking about it being a criminal offense, this is nonsense, complete nonsense, to drag a man or a woman out. court for not cleaning,” Richard continued.
In response, Dr. Dunlop argued: “Let’s flip the argument … we accepted the idea of equal pay before I was born, in 1970. And we still haven’t reached parity. women still get paid about 10% less for the same job despite our best efforts.
She added: “All the studies show that until you have equality in the family space, until men are doing the unpaid work fairly, you won’t be able to do it. get equality.
“That’s a false analogy!” Richard replied. “Can you imagine going down the nick, getting arrested and at the police station… the crime will be like?!”
Dr. Dunlop goes on to compare it to women who are not being paid equally, but Richard is not.
“You keep doing the same things…joking aside…same things aside, just stick to this. ?”
“Yes, I really can because I already have the right of way…” Dr. Dunlop replied as Richard began to laugh.
GMB viewers clearly thought her argument was absurd and took to Twitter to comment.
“This ill-fated woman on #GMB is why people don’t take women seriously,” one person posted.
Another tweeted: “#GMB is this woman serious?? making dodging housework a crime ??FFS!”
Another said: “Stigmatizes all men because she has a lazy husband. If a man does that to a woman it will cause hell. #GMB #goodmorningbritain.”
Good Morning Britain airs at 6am weekdays on ITV and ITV Hub.
