Basically a Tory councillor posted a comment on the Labour candidate's face book page saying she hadn't mentioned on there that she was pregnant and then 'Brexit on the horizon and she might be too busy changing nappies to be a voice for the people of Erewash."

He goes on to say how can she be an mp if she is on maternity leave etc.

Lol, how does he even know she's taking it? It could be her husband doing the care. Is this just another example of sexism in the old boys' club?

Wow, he's a twat isn't he? It's like he's never heard of men looking after their children, the way he just assumes she'll have a year off for maternity leave. How stupid does he think she is?

Yanbu. The same comments wouldn't be made about a man who was about to become a father.

Jesus. And announcing her pregnancy for her. What a little shit.

He really hasn't thought it through has he? Did he forget women get to vote too?

I agree mini.
