    I have a problem with it. I think it is stupid.
    I wouldn't care if our law lords are all male and white, as long as they do their job and got appointed through work not political correctness.

    I don't even know if we have any female law lords. Do we?

    Its funny how some people care more about what colour, gender etc. a person is as if it is important.

    If they were supposed to be representative, we would vote for them.

    They are supposed to be appointed, due to their ability to analyze and apply the laws of the land, and strike down laws that are unconstitutional. Having a penis, vagina, or a 6th toe is irrelevant to that ability.

    Oh, I agree completely. I just don't see how wishing to see more equally qualified women appointed to the Supreme Court is at all harmful.

    Meh, beats creating a new thread on the same woman

    Male bankers are responsible for financial crisis

    Harriet Harman today appeared to blame the onset of the global financial crisis on too many male bankers.

    The Labour Deputy Leader called for more women to be given seats in the boardrooms of the biggest financial institutions and suggested they would do a better job than men.

    Referring to one of the U.S. banks which folded, Ms Harman said: 'Someone said that if it had been Lehman Sisters, instead of Lehman Brothers, there might not have been so much difficulty
    .

    Re: Harriet Harman: you canít trust men in power

    This site is a perfect example of why harman is wrong.You can blame it on education social attitudes etc but if we can take this time as a snapshot of time there just isnt as many women interested in politics as men.

    Even on a free to join up site debating politics its like 80/20 we have some great women posters on here but its still lopsided.

    Yup ... she is trying to force her own agenda on us.

    The same way we never see men in the beauty industry because they are simply not interested.
    If we want to see women in politics, maybe women should start paying attention more in politics.
