Default Leadsom: Being a mother gives me an advantage over Theresa May.




  • Andrea Leadsom claimed being a mother would make her a better leader
  • Comes days after Theresa May revealed sadness at having no children
  • Home Secretary's supporters condemned the remarks as 'disgusting'
  • Mrs Leadsom has taken to Twitter to furiously deny the comments


Tory leadership contender Andrea Leadsom has sparked outrage after claiming she has the edge over rival Theresa May - because she is a mother.
Theresa May’s supporters last night reacted with indignation, condemning remarks as ‘disgusting’.

The Times ran the story and have released the audio of the interview and the journo was on BBC news this morning defending the article.

She did say it but also said along the lines of but i dont want this to be made into an issue thus ensuring she has an out.


So was she devious, naive or is this just Murdoch picking PMs again and supporting May?

I cannot see Murdoch particularly wanting May,he said he wanted the UK to leave the EU.

Anyway back to Leadsom, she volunteered her quote of being a Mother and having Children who will have children in the future.
She made the issue of it.
No doubt in my mind she is devious,I would not trust a thing she says or does and I think she is likely trying to deceive those who will votes in this, to believe she is someone positive, which in my view she is not.

If she really did not want this to become an issue, she should not have brought it up in the first place,all she is mad at is how it has been reported.
Frankly the audio recording sounds just the same as the actual report.

This Woman is not to be trusted in my opinion.

Yes that's the Start of my Vote Thread


Mother

or the Non Mother.


Andrea Leadsom claims
the Times remixed what she said.

But if she does not shut this up
it will back fire

To not do so would eliminate the need for any threads at all and no reason to post either, so in effect no need for a forum either really.

What on earth kind of point is that you are making as to 'that's your guess'.

If following the money means tolerating or supporting the likes of Murdoch,then no way will I ever do that.

He should keep his nose out of our politics and also how the papers he owns reports too.
Either its a free press or its not, if he dictates what stand they should take on issues then it is controlled press.

Far better remove him form owning anything in the UK as to the media at all,that I would support 100%.

The opening post asked was this that Murdoch preferred May, I said I cannot see him wanting May.

What on earth is the issue that you have to raise so much as to what I said,for crying out loud.

Theresa May has tried and failed to have children, its a bit of a low blow

Perhaps the lowest blow a woman van make to another woman?

She made her point of view very clear when she went on to say that she had children, against only having nephews and nieces.
Quite a nasty piece of work under all that smiley happy face.

Honestly can you imagine a male claiming superiority in running the country because he is a Dad, it makes me embarrassed to be a woman and please let's not go down the hem line/ fashion route

The Times headlined its front-page lead story "Being a mother gives me edge on May - Leadsom."
It quoted the energy minister as saying Mrs May "possibly has nieces, nephews, lots of people. But I have children who are going to have children who will directly be part of what happens next".

As I often say on here, you hear of stories of children who've been beaten, burned, starved to death, who die in the most horrific way at the hands of their parents. Giving birth gives you no advantage over women who haven't.

That said, I've seen no proof that she made this claim and I'd be really surprised that a woman in her position would poison her own campaign in this way.
