Cameron's empty talk on family values exposed

I blogged back in May about the case of Pauleen Lane, who was banned from breast-feeding in her official limousine while Mayor of Trafford. I am delighted tosay that Ms Lane has won her case and £7,000 in damages and an estimated £170,000 in legal costs.

During the case, the QC for Conservative controlled council told the court that Ms Lane should have expressed milk or left her child in the care of someone else.

What clearer demonstration of the hollowness of David Cameron's avowal of family freindly policies could there be?

  1. I don't normally get violent about things but whoever tried to stop Ms Lane breastfeeding, and the QC who took the case really ought to be horsewhipped on the steps of their club.

    A proper Conservative, of course would have been fed by the family wet nurse.
