Promote deputies solely on merit
Published 12/03/2011 | 05:00
When male politicians are passed over for promotion it is part of the normal cut and thrust of politics. When female politicians are passed over, the equality ideologues tell us they are being discriminated against!
Politicians shouldn't be discriminated against because of their gender, but neither should be favoured because of it.
Surely it is time to stamp out sexism in politics and promote people solely on merit.
