Tories target the female vote
Quote from Toby Helm @ [url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2006/02/27/nequal27.xmlSet up 18 months ago Lady Prosser's Commission will reveal that more women than men work in the lowest paid jobs, the so-called "five Cs" - catering, cleaning, cashiering, clerical work and caring.

Cosily refered to by BBC newscasters as "The Indy" (no doubt staff at the Independent refer to the BBC as "The Beeb") the Independent also carries this story this morning.
The 7th paragraph down in that article states;
Its (the Work and Women Comission's Report)...40 recommendations include plans to encourage more women into male-dominated industries such as computers and construction and away from the "five Cs" - catering, cleaning, cashiering, clerical work and caring.
Translation: It includes plans to encourage more men into catering, cleaning, cashiering, clerical work and caring. Unless of course they're expecting robots to be created to fill these positions in future. Oh yes and while we're at it, let's 'encourage' men to go part-time and stay home and look after the house.
If this is indeed all about equality of opportunity, then I would expect to see all-women dustbin crews and street sweepers combing the streets on a regular basis. I'd imagine career women might just blanch at the opportunity to be able do that kind of job, regardless of what it pays.

Wow, nice piece from the Telegraph exposing the hypocracy of feminists who are prepared to fall back on their little woman status when ever it suits them. In this case Jowell claims to be uninvolved with her husbands financial arrangements for a mortgage despite having signed the form and claiming to be an independant feminist she is now prepared to drop feminism like a stone and hide behind her hubby. lol. This goes to show that feminism is a charade that can be stopped or dropped whenever it suits the ladies. Can patriarchy be switched off? No, it has to be able to cope with all eventualities. Feminism is a device used by unscrupulous and dysfunctional people to bring them special status that allows them to recieve benefits to which they wouldn't normally be entitled and should be exposed for the con it is.

Well, well, well.
Just read on teletext this morning that their marriage is over, a split caused by 'the strain' of the whole affair.
Oh Tessa dear - you are a prudent strategist are you not !
Shame about your integrity - and indeed your very humanity. Or blatant lack of it."Every age has its own characteristic illusions. They are likliest to lurk in those wide-spread assumptions which are so ingrained in the age that no one dares to attack or feels it necessary to defend them".
