    So according to some women's equality group in this article, the latest budget is being claimed to discriminate against women. Their reasoning, because the public sector has been hit hardest by the budget and since the public sector is made up of 65% women, that means it's women who'll be hit hardest.

    I'm all for equality but it seems they're shooting themselves in the foot on this one? So 65% of public sector workers are women? Erm...isn't that inequality in itself? Seems to me maybe the public sector cuts should be used to sack that "unequal" extra 15% of women so then they'll get their equality and the government gets their cuts. Win-Win.
