A Few Thoughts

The continuous political bickering and devastating snowstorms make for very little opinion when blogging.

The BBC is currently running as their top story Cameron's opinion on the alleged leadership coup.

Cameron must be delighted that something is taking the attention off his appalling display within Prime Minister's questions yesterday.

The BBC must be delighted that they can put something in a headline slot other than their most highly paid and infamous presenter resigning.

And Now for Something Completely Different

It is a delight to see that the United States of America are finally entertaining fair and just policies in relation to gender discrimination and employment legislation.

However, they should learn from the current legislation in Britain that you have to catch someone first.

In spite of legislation in the UK to combat discrimination in the last 10 years, gender discrimination in employment is still rife. I could launch into a diatribe about people that are persuaded to "have a sense of humour" all representations of gender stereotyping by the media and the damage it does to people's perceptions of how they should behave and how they should be treated, but I'm sure if you've read this far you know all this.

And, it appears that Murdoch may have to revise his ideas on charging people to view news content on the Internet followinga suggestion that the Independent may also become free newspaper
