Female Trouble

Quite apart from the embarrassing limpness of the Liberal Democrats, it appears that certain elements of Daveybloke's Cuddly Coalition are developing a vague sense of worry about the British Wife and Mother vote. Daveybloke's chief strategist has spent the whole summer thinking about women and has even scheduled a meeting with some of Theresa May's staff to gain insight into the feminine mindset. Daveybloke's chum Steve Hilton, who was last heard of proposing the abolition of maternity rights, has been either shouted down or kicked into shape, and now proposes various measures to make the Government look as if it gives a damn about women whose income bracket is below Theresa May's. As usually happens in such matters, the document emphasises the need for a better public-relations strategy and gently rebukes the most family-friendly government ever for failing to make sufficient allowance for the limited mental development of those lying frigid beneath its rampant benignity. There is even a popular narrative going around which implies that the cuts in public sector pay and pensions have left some people worse off, and that bankers are mostly male. I wonder who's going to break the news to the Bullingdon Club that it may no longer be so easy to sweep the ladies into the back seat with bullying, personal wealth, chronic untruthfulness and all the other traditional methods.

    There was this, as well. Apparently the Chancellor's charm works best on the unconscious ones.
