Forget PC idiocy and get on with real work

This is political correctness gone mad if Phil Hogan is going to insist that all political parities have to have at least 30pc female candidates for future elections.

Since when was a person's ability to carry out a job in politics based on his or her gender?

Why not go all the way and insist that 10pc of candidates have red hair, be left-handed or be born between a Sunday and Wednesday?

Come on! Let's get on with the real work.
