It’s time to applaud a Conservative MEP for London, Marina Yannakoudakis. A fine British name. I thank my most prolific supporter for drawing to my attention a letter she wrote, printed in yesterday’s Times. It includes the following gem:
Promoting inexperienced, risk hungry women to boards is not only patronising window dressing, but also a danger to the future prosperity of the companies concerned.
The spirit of Mrs T is alive and well in a number of Conservative politicians. I applaud them all. Maybe I should launch a new award, specifically for the few public figures who talk sense on gender-related matters. Any suggestions as to what the awards might be called? Thatchers?
