My initial reaction ….
At the moment all I can say is that I’m shocked and speechless about the insensitivity and smug-parent pronatalist views of Andrea Leadsom.
However, rest assured Andrew and I will be writing a proper response to her comments etc to be published in a couple of days: unfortunately I’m really struggling with nausea and morphine-fog otherwise I would write something now. Perhaps the delay is a good thing though because at the moment I am not sure how polite I would be by the end of the article. So much for a quite day recharging the batteries and gathering spoons for the week ahead: ranting, even in my head or to the dogs, takes up spoons and doesn’t help the nausea to recede. So for now, all I will say is “Andrea Leadson you are a disgrace!”
