I didn't at first take in the Mumsnet reference but have now posted the above on Mumsnet.

I really enjoyed your hosting of the News Quiz.

Women certainly need someone to push forward the sadly lagging equality agenda and I'm sure many of them, including myself, were pleased to see someone willing to have a go at shaking up the present male-dominated political system.

I wondered, though, how you see the party in terms of its position on the left/right spectrum or if your vision of the party is to focus almost entirely on issues that are of particular importance to women, such as equal pay, more representation at higher levels of business and public service, etc.? Even on those issues, the "left" and the "right" tend to have quite different opinions as to what actions should be taken.

I am just reading a book of hers - I seldom laugh out loud at books, but this is so very funny!

Thought you might like to know that Sandi Toksvig OBE, and co-founder of the new Women's Equality Party, is going to be doing a webchat over on Mumsnet at 1pm. If you're interested do pop over and ask her a question.
