It looks like it took Tory MEP Marina Yannakoudakis around 17 minutes to realise she'd sent out the wrong statement.
The European Parliament this week held up the appointment over a new European Central Bank board member because he lacked the apparently-requisite other X chromosome.
At 12.20 today Yannakoudakis fired out a press release "praising" the EP's decision "to approve" his appointment.
Realising the error, 17 minutes later our inboxes rang with her raging "condemnation" of the gender politicking.
