Got sent a link to this, so I thought I'd post it. Haven't had time to have a look at it, but thought in the wake of the Boris Johnson thread, people might be interested!

I love that "the playground politics of working versus stay at home mothers portayed by the media does not exist".

Maybe not in the playground, but it is alive and well on mumsnet!

What's Boris done now?

Go to beansmums thread Senora - she's got a link to the telegraph article today - the link's on in the news and is something like "What if women don't want to work?"

Very interesting, but again agrees with teh fact that Boris is not saying anything NEW. We would love to work less but it is not much of an option.

So saying I am a rare example, I love my job, I am highly valued, I couldn't imagine asking for part-time, but that is my choice. I am given enough flexibility to get to all important kids events and I do have the rate work/life balance with my dh. As my kids get older it is easier and easier to work (except the holiday dilemma) and am really moving up the ladder which I didn't do much before kids
