Gordon Brown's gratuitous comments!

Gordon Brown, whilst sidestepping the anti-democratic nature of the appointements of two EU functionaries, suggested tonight in a very gratuitous way that the selection of a female "Foreign Minister of Europe" was a signal that discrimination was defeated and that equality was supported.

Where has this obsession got him? Are we now so politically correct that every time a woman is appointed to any position, gratuitous remarks about slaying some mythical discrimination dragon need amplifying. This is not a breaking down of a barrier. It is just an appointment. Sexism was only in his mind. He must be the only one in the world who thought that one up! Lack of democracy - YES! Sex discrimination - NO!

Shame on you, Mr. Brown.
