Political and Social Blog. A Magazine Forum on public and private thoughts, meanderings, and odds and ends. (Disclaimer: The views held on this blog are our views, and not necessarily the views of any organisation we are involved with or represent)
Once you buy into the idea that "society" has a role in shaping family life, you are bound to have fairly stupid discussions. Hence the mind-numbing tedium of most political dialogue in Britain today, based as it is on the false premise that the sledgehammer of State power is the correct tool for every job.I am not defending these womens' views. I merely comment that this is probably a longer and more thoughtful discussion than took place before the launch of each of Labour's spin-driven, headline-grabbing and socially-destructive policies of the last ten years.
Well at least those girls agreed to appear on camera in front of the public, unlike Gordon Brown who is far too chicken to face Cameron in a live debate.
Tom, most Labour consultative discussions take place over a certain period of time and involve large groups of people, I know because I have been involved in them. What these three women are doing off the hoof as it were, and publicising, is supposedly representative of the Conservative Party.As for a TV debate. Labour first mooted the idea years ago and the Conservatives refused. Plus the PM doesn't just face Parliamentary questions, he faces the press every month and his predecessor sometimes appeared as a lone panelist on BBC Question Time, I suspect Brown will do the same, that's hardly chicken behaviour.
