THE TORY MP Nicolas Gibb was rebuked by the Speaker, Betty Boothroyd, after he called the Paymaster-General a "stupid woman". She told Mr Gibb: "I believe you insulted half the population of this country about stupid women. I therefore would like an apology from you because I happen to be one of them."
