THE drone strike of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri would have been more impressive if the Lionesses did it, Britain has agreed.
The assassination of a 9/11 plotter by the England women’s national football team would have inspired a whole generation of girls to believe that they could grow up to surgically strike terrorists even better than men.
Mother of three daughters Nikki Hollis said: “For too long using a drone to take out high-ranking Islamic jihadis has been a boy’s club. If Beth Mead or Jill Scott had been at the controls Bin Laden’s deputy would be still dead and it would be a great day for women.
“You saw how the Lionesses put them past Merle Frohms on Sunday. Compared to that, launching some missiles at a guy on a balcony? Easy. So why not give them the chance?
“Let Alessia Russo show you how it’s done, CIA, by making the drone do a cheeky barrel roll. Let Chloe Kelly turn it into a feminist moment by whipping her shirt off after the blast. Stand aside. It’s Her Turn.
“Imagine the jubilation in Trafalgar Square if Wiegman’s girls were hoisting the smouldering remains of al-Zawahiri aloft, dancing to Sweet Caroline.
“Sadly, due to the patriarchy, that day is a long way off.”
