Pregnant women could be allowed to park their cars in dedicated bays to save them having to walk so far to reach shops and supermarkets.Ummm, surely you don’t mean like…
Oh. You do:
Women would have the same rights as disabled blue badge holders during their last three months of pregnancy, under the plans.Oh, this one is going to run and run…
GPs and midwives would distribute pink badges for mothers-to-be to display in their cars, entitling them to park in priority spaces closer to services.
Darren Millar, Conservative AM for Clwyd West, proposed the scheme in a legislative competence order (LCO), and said it would help women at an “uncomfortable time” .There are some radical feminists who aren't going to be amused at this. How do you say ‘sexist pig!’ in Welsh?
He said the idea came from his wife Rebekah's experiences when she was carrying their children seven and nine years ago. She has described the idea as "fantastic".Why didn’t he just fiddle his expenses to provide her with a taxi like all the other MPs?
If it was good enough for John Prescott’s wife’s hair, why wasn’t it good enough for his heir?
Mr Millar said: “Clearly while this is not is a major issue for everybody, it is something I feel strongly about.How about you and all the other fathers-to-be give her a hand, then, Darren? Rather than inflict yet another privileged victim class on us?
“This would only be a temporary arrangement entitling women in their final three months of pregnancy to the same parking privileges as blue badge holders.
“It's about giving pregnant ladies in those last three months a bit of extra help.
“They shouldn't be struggling with heavy shopping bags and walking from one end of the car park to the other.”
Politicians; convinced they can legislate civility into being…
