  1. So Much For Subtlety

    She seems to have shopped the same article on giving up alcohol to half the planet.

    Nicola Sturgeon has revealed she had a miscarriage. Did she really need to tell us?

    But she misses the obvious – yes she did. Sturgeon has all the appeal of Nurse Ratchet giving you a prostate exam. Obviously she has been told to make an appeal to the public. They probably think this will humanize her.

  2. ‘I’m 45 and childless. I don’t need to explain why — to anyone’

    That’s why you published an article on it about 60 times, love.

  3. Perhaps an explanation is due to the children of other people who will pay taxes to support her old age or the children of other people who will man the armed forces and defend her willfully barren arse.

  4. Fred Z , well If she worked then she paid a little for their education and health care so kind of evens out I would say.

    Actually – Hannah has a point. She doesn’t seem to be saying no-one else should have kids, or even that it’s a mugs game, but rather that she would be an incompetent mother so yeah.. who are we to argue?

  5. Hallowed Be: Nah, we old farts will be a horrible drain on the treasury compared to the cost of kids. I plan to be such a drain. Looking forward to it. My kids mutter about ice floes and so on, but so what?

  6. She’s tedious; and yet her target market – the childless 20% of fertile women – will lap up her self-obsessed drivel, because empowerment or something.
