How do you know when this government have gone mad?

When they propose cutting maternity leave to give father’s more time with their newborns…

The mother is the essential component here. I am quite sure that if a woman takes a year to raise the child before going back to work, then in the long run the child will be much better off.

We cannot be so obsessed with earnings as a ratio of equality that we monitarise every aspect of people’s lives. Children are more important than a few years lost in a career!
