I really hoped the Times had done a stitch up on Leadsom as did not want to believe that any politician could be so cruel as to in any way try to use a rival candidate's infertility to point score but have heard the audio, read the transcript (attached) and it's exactly what she did. I'm an old raving leftie so not a natural May fan at all but to me this feeds the misogynist media monster that asks female politicians about children etc where it so rarely would men and is underpinned by a patronising assumption that mothers are a homogenous group who care more about the country than those who don't have kids. It's horrendous and regressive. I've got sod all understanding of social media but want to send some sort of message back that it's not just pesto eating liberal metropolitan so and sos wound up by this but the demographic I think she's going for. If you agree at all please please tweet or fb or whatever else there is out there to say so with the tag #MothersAgainstLeadsom

I wholeheartedly agree cheerful absolutely shameful. It is clear she has no chance against TM so is using her ability to give birth. confused Its a bit Ida basic one, isn't it?
I too am no Tory but have respect for TM as a hardworking, capable politician.
