Ladies in Parlaiment

Post by Doc on Fri Nov 16, 2012 7:44 pm

Has Louise Mench and Nadine Dorris set women's political ambitions back. There is still momentum regarding recruitment of women into politics and a positive discrimination agenda to set targets etc. I realise these 2 self centered air heads are tories, but the libs and labs have plenty of their own. Then we get the stuff about ensuring every company has a number of women on the board. My own view is that the best available candidate should be given the job, in any walk of life, and having fixed criteria for the sake of PC doesn't work, and is unfair.

Anyone been watching Nadine on I'm a Celebrity this week? Not as easy in there as she thought maybe! I see that she has pledged her MP's salary whilst she is away from her constituency to charity, but no mention of what she is going to do with her fee for appearing in the TV show. What would that be, around £250,000?

(By the way, obviously I am not a fan of these rubbish, reality TV shows but I have to watch it as the kids like it) Innocent

Blue - I've heard that the fee is around £40k. Easy money for most of them at the moment, as Helen is doing all the trials. Innocent

In answer to the original question - "Yes" Like yourself, as long as the recruitment process is totally open and fair, I think it should be the best person for the role who gets it.

Ladies in Parliament should be limited to Maggie and the dinnerladies.

You mean not doing the trials don't you Mary! 40k is pretty easy money I suppose, I just thought it was a lot more than that, especially given the amount of revenue the programme generates

So Nadine is the first person out of this years I'm a Celebrity after securing the least amount of votes from the public.

Apparently claiming to be now working on her constituency duties in an office set up in her Australian hotel room, I wonder what sort of welcome awaits the wandering MP on her return to the UK?

That's prepared her for getting the least number of votes at the next election, then

Surely she must have realised and therefore accepted that her political career would be over once she agreed to appear on this TV show?

Personally I think the public should have made her stay and then victimise her into eating as many kangaroo bollocks as possible.

I don't watch I'm a Celebrity (would rather stick needles in my eyes...) but was talking to someone yesterday that does watch it who assured me that one of the "icky food" challenges has been Camel's Toe

Naturally I burst out laughing and was very skeptical - was this a joke?

Davie - there are a lot of camels in Australia!

(I've always suspected this so-called entertainment - which I have never stooped to watch - is actually filmed in a studio in the UK and goes nowhere near Australia).

Not that sort of Camel Toe Davie, but you might have given the producers an idea for next year!

What as opposed to just talking bollocks?

Makes it change for bollocks to go in rather than come out of their gobs.

I just think that an opportunity to torture one of these scumbags legally has been missed. Now I'll have to go through with my waterboarding plans for parliament again.

She wouldn't play the game though LJ...three times she cried "I'm a Celebrity, get me out of here" to escape a trial. Perhaps that option should be excluded for politicians in future?
