Equality – as if we haven’t heard enough of it!

There’s all this fuss going on in the media (and social media!) about this equality of women. All I can say is that I’ve recruited more women than men. There we are, I’m a feminist now! What on earth this might be I just don’t know – maybe someone in the press can advise me.

So there you have it, Ruck is on the side of women. So what’s all this bleating about anyway?

Every time you pick up a newspaper, every time you watch the television, there it is: Equality of women. I really am getting fed up with it and no doubt you are too. In the days when I used to work for a living, I was often sitting in judgement on an interview panel. Men, women and all sorts. There were the bright and attractive types and so on. All I used to do was look at the CV (I used to ignore the academic achievements, everybody’s got a degree these days), look at the person and see how she/he would answer my particularly awkward questions – it was a right royal interrogation! And do you what the answer would invariably be? The women were sharper than the men. They were more conscientious and reliable……well, they didn’t go boozing on a Friday night. Yes, yes I know this last point could be subject ‘to negotiation’!

All in all, I preferred women to men. They made exceptional employees.

And have you seen all this ‘What to say at an interview’ on the recruitment adverts? If I was recruiting again and someone came up with this garbage, they would be out of the door sharpish. The internet playing havoc again – I know I’m an old soak but something has to be said.

As I’ve said many times before, the chains have rotted away on the railings. Equality is here to stay and quite right too – apart from the child bearing element! No-one can do anything about the biological process, so be it. I wouldn’t like to carry a child in my tummy, so praise to be to women I say!

Hang on here, the equality brigade might want men to have the babies. Fat chance!
