Oh dear! The leader of the Tory party in the UK and the current prime minister of Great Britain, wants to appoint a female special advisor to cast an eye over Government initiatives and to ensure policies are women friendly.
Yes, that’s right. The UK government feels the need to bring in a woman to check over policies so that they will win women’s votes in the next election. Whoops, sorry, I meant obviously he wants to make sure he is representing all the population. That’s at least 50% of us that need a special advisor.
I almost don’t know where to start, and I don’t even want to dignify such patronising nonsense with a considered response. But one piece of advice, David. This is 2011. Appoint some women into government.
And don’t ever tell me to “Calm Down Dear!”
