Just letting you know so you don’t get confused.
BECAUSE I AM NICE :3
From a total of 29 attending cabinet, there will be just four women. (One of them, Sayeeda Warsi, is unpaid, unelected and a “minister without portfolio”. She is also the only non-white member of the cabinet.) It’s quite a contrast with Nick Clegg’s comments on Tuesday: “I hope this is the start of a new kind of politics I have always believed in. Diverse, plural, where different points of view find a way to work together.”
This cabinet, diverse? With less than 14% women? Spain manages 53%, Germany 37%. Plural? With not a single minority ethnic MP? A new kind of politics? When two thirds of the top table went to private school – three each to Eton and Westminster – compared with 7% of the population?” —Katharine Viner - read the whole thing, it’s brilliant.
