A depressing piece in the Daily Mail:
How pathetic is this extract from the article?
Mr Cameron has faced criticism for his failure to promote women in the past, amid claims he left two female Cabinet ministers in tears when he sacked them in last September’s reshuffle.
Clearly female cabinet ministers, even those who’ve proved to be utterly incompetent, should never be sacked, lest they burst into tears.
The cabinet currently has 22 ministers:
Four ministers are women, and only one, Theresa May, heads a major department:
Theresa May – Home Office
Justine Greening – International Development
Maria Miller – Culture, Media and Sport, Women and Equalities
Theresa Villiers – Northern Ireland
So, four female ministers in a cabinet of 22… that’s 18.2%. There are 48 women among the Conservatives’ 304 MPs… 15.8%. So women are already over-represented in the cabinet, yet Dave wants to increase their over-representation further. What a truly spineless man he is.
