I find a lively debate, inspired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, regarding whether full-time working mothers are detrimental to family cohesion and children’s welfare.
Among the predictable pearls thrown up by those with nothing better to do all day than take the Archbishop of Canterbury seriously, I alight upon this little gem, posted by a Mr Arnold Ward:
My wife and I both work around 75% which seems to work for us and our two children - maybe this is a model that should be more universally adopted.
Truly we are in the presence of genius. He continues…
Moreover, just because they are women does not mean that they are going make great mothers, my own mother was not temperamentally well suited to childcare - try as she might.
Evidently, she was not much cop at elementary statistics or basic logic, either. On the other hand, I do hope she’s still hale enough to hotfoot it round to his place and kick his sorry, ungrateful and mathematically-illiterate ass all over the room.
For his next trick, Mr Ward will solve income inequality by giving everyone a 10% pay rise…
Mr Ward’s grasp of numbers is eight today. Many happy returns!
