AWS

I was reading Labour's number 1 political blogger, and I am now confused. A few months ago, he wrote something about how rubbish it was that Hemel Hempstead had an all women shortlist because it was personally inconvenient to his plans for a future political career.

Rather than either learning from the points made by others in response to this drivel or keeping quiet about the subject, he's chosen today to relate an anecdote about getting a letter with a misprinted date, as a way of reasserting his view that all women shortlists discriminate against him, and a link to remind people of how he got demolished last time he tried to argue this.

Obviously, different people choose to write about different things, and I like a lot of what Kerron writes, but it just seems strange to me, like a dog returning to its vomit or some such.

Throw Don Paskini down the well, so the bloggersphere can be free.

I think you will note that my original post...

http://kerroncross.blogspot.com/2007/01/all-women-shortlists-revisited.html

...was not about the veritable merits/demerits of AWS. It was about someone sending me a mis-dated invite to a meeting (that coincidentally happened to be about AWS).

I noted to that this post may be (deliberately) pounced upon by AWS zealots and people who would inevitably have a political axe to grind. And how true that has proven.

It is funny that just the mention of the words "All Women Shortlist" sends some into a frenzied defensive state.

Go re-read the post.

You baited responses to your post (otherwise you wouldn't have put those links in) and now seem upset that you've got some.

I don't get why if you have political ambitions you keep on returning to this subject. But each to their own.
