Does it ever seem to you that women always want it both ways , so to speak? I am looking at acres of coverage on Mirriam O Reilly`s triumph over the supposedly "ageist" BBC and its anti wrinkly stance .
OK fine but can we also ensure that no vapid clothes-horse is ever promoted on the basis of being young and pretty. Doubt it , do Anna Ford or Selina Scott think they got their turn due to a mountainous intellect ?
Also there was a survey recently showing what we all know , which is that men do all the work ina family. We are required to earn the steady money , stick at it and be nurturing nappy changing goo cleaning auxilliary housewives as well.
Women ...pah !

I can't see why she's so happy. It is now official. Been proved in a court of law. She is a wrinkly old bint. No wonder she hasn't worked since and has very little chance of ever working again. £150 k in the bank isn't going to go far!!

Countryfile has gone seriously downhill since it moved to sunday evenings. I reckon the only presenters worth watching are Adam Henson (a proper farmer) and John Craven. Katie Knapman & James Wong are not bad either.
I mute the tv when ever the grinning twins Matt Baker & Julia Bradbury are on screen.

I can't imagine Old Mother O'Reilly looking quite as good as her usurper Julia in a wet suit jumping off rocks into water. I agree Giles I don't need to listen to her either. The Northern monkey is reet annoyin' liyke.

I trust you are joking Newmania?
Women want it both ways, they have to, as most men are bloody useless - as this forum clearly ilustrates on a daily basis

Speak for yourslef Old Cynic I am an all singing all dancing working baby watching car fixing ,dump visiting shopping superman and I `m cheap as well.No the serious fact is that men get a raw deal and women have arranged life around them like a dollies tea Party. Fact.
Another thing . In the Space shuttle there were two monkeys and a woman. Suddenly there was a jolt and Houston came crackling through the ether
" MONKEY A MONKEY A - Recalibrate the turbo boosters and allign the diametrics " Off went the monkey and did just that but there was still a problem
" MONKEY B MONKEY B EMERGENCY- Quickly de bug the console using programme A34 C45 amended update and punch in the ignition code for orbit "- Monkey B did just that but still the problmes persisted
" WOMAN...WOMAN"( Said Houston).....
" I know I know " said the woman" feed the monkeys but for god`s sake don`t touch anything "
( Now I `m joking)
