No, not Mr Eugenides, to whom I owe the hat tip, but Newton Emerson, an Irish journalist and satirist who has this rather biased view on the cause of our current economic difficulty.
Obviously I take a different view.
That's the trouble with bad things happening - everyone is out to find a scapegoat, be it foreign workers (forgetting that the UK has far more of its citizens working across the EU than EU citizens working here) and now women. I bet it won't be long until someone seriously suggests repealing the equality legislation that has been so hard won over the years.
The premise of the article is clearly that men have more of a right to participate in employment than women and that women's careers are expendable, and a luxury that should only be allowed when the economic circumstances allow. Someone needs to find this man and drag him into the 20th, let alone the 21st century!
It would, of course, be mean to mention that the key players in the political and banking world who got us into this mess are almost exlusively men..........
