I think it's rather important, if not essential, that people who sit on a Women and Equalities committee in parliament fess up about dodgy past statements or behaviour before they are found out and exposed and have to resign. Everyone can make mistakes and surely we all modify our views of people, politics, events, behaviours as we grow and mature and experience life and learn tolerance.
Having said that, how come we all know people with fixed views and entrenched positions? And there are far too many cases of women, children, boys, even men being harassed, assaulted and/or bullied and not being listened to by police/colleagues/superiors. Look how many crawled out from under when Jimmy Saville, Rolf Harris, Weinstein finally hit the public eye with their transgressions. Not easy to stand up to on your own.
Glad you're being looked after Pdoc and hope the frustration doesn't go on too long before they find a cause and a treatment.
We have more progress today - OH and I took both cars to pick up the tiles, 23C in La Roche-S-Y this pm and carpenters got nearly all the cladding done and a hole for the cat flap. Looking forward to teaching the kitties about that. Had a chat, at last, with Possum who is, it seems, stressing about her workload and finding a placement for her work experience. Calmer now.
Did a wee shop on the way back so missed a neighbour fest. Huge bag of quinces from Fabienne who is now grandma to Liane and a huge califlower from Anniek and an invitation to go and peruse their potager to see what and how they grow. Cauli soup for lunch then and cauli for dinner. What to do with quinces as we still have all but one jar of last year's jelly?
Fab autumn colours on the way there and back. Love this time of year.
