It seems we aren't shouting loud enough!

Far too polite and nice and thinking about other people all the time.

If my Facebook page is any indication, we're shouting loudly. I suppose we're in cyber space though, so can be ignored.
Did anyone see Edwina Currie on the channel 5 Benefit discussion? She shouted, spat and generally behaved like the insensitive bully she is. Her younger counter part the equally dreadful Katie Hopkins was also shouting a spitting. What is it about SHOUTING that draws the media to people...

Maybe women in their fifties have realised that doing things quietly and without a big show is just as effective as engaging in attention-seeking stunts in leopard skin fabric.

I thought the Guardian article rather shallow.

Are men of the same age any different?

Didn't see the programme, but Edwina but apparently very nasty to Jack Monroe who is really pissed off with her. Here's the blog:

The vast majority of positions of power in which get to say how the country is run are men nonnie . And at current government level this is getting worse.

Please don't get me started on Edwina Currie [I came close to hitting her once and I'm pretty non violent]. I don't want her representing my gender sad.
