    He’s not a woman, JAG. Leave the poor bastard alone. What are you – a bloody twitter stalker now?

      Went through a lot of the Briefings to the incoming Ministers as they can provide detail you don’t always see elsewhere. In the contacts many had 50/50 gender balance but some stood out with all women. I know we’ve got to increase the ratio regardless of merit but where’s the balance if the Minister can only get advice from one gender?

        JAG is going to end up making a permanent pain, pest, & hypocrite of herself.

            What business is it of hers ? If she has time to look at things like Twitter to see who strangers are following, she has too much time on her hands.

            The whole 50/50 thing is terribly patronising, anyway.Stuck in the 70s….

            A jag can also be a binge,

    Some women complain when men follow them. Others complain when they don’t.

      Be interesting to see if he replies or blocks her. I’ve hardly used Twitter. If you block someone on Twitter do their twits replying to yours still show to others? Anyone know?

        Probably not or there’d be little point, I think.

    Just imagine what would happen if people like this got into power!
    Too late.
    Compulsory 50/50 followers.

      Go on Twitter to congratulate themselves, patronise other women’s achievements and ask nosey questions.
