A no-win game

It is fair to say that neither of the two UK coalition parties have a particularly good record in promoting woment to senior positions. In the case of the Liberal Democrats the main problem has been getting women elected. We will make a huge effort to put that right in 2015.

For David Cameron, the reshuffle promised for this week could be a major step forward. Political pundits predict that he is poised to promote a number of women into the cabinet and other ministerial positions. For some however, that is not enough.

The Independent reports that for Shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, it is too late: “This is going to look really like a last-minute worry about votes because he knows that he has got a real blind spot when it comes to women.”

Sometimes you cannot do right for doing right.
