There aren’t enough women in the Conservative Cabinet. In fact there aren’t enough women in politics full stop. There is talk of all-women shortlists and the like, but I reckon one of the real problems is we don’t consider a career in politics a practical option, or an appealing one. west I am passionate about politics. Actually I am passionate about people, and fairness, and health, and education, and world peace, and all those things come under a politicians remit. I might be a great politician, but I don’t want to be one. Why? Firstly because I am a Mum. I just can’t quite figure out how you fit the job round a family. I doff my imaginary hat to those that do, like poor Yvette Cooper rushing the kids to school while Ed Balls bashes away at the ivories. Is it just me who would be threatening to shove that piano somewhere it really shouldn’t fit?
