The question?

All those YouTube parodies of the Führerbunker are becoming hopelessly inaccurate: the Führer ran a comparatively tight ship up until the end; Brown's Gotterdämmerung is completely chaotic.

Gerald Warner, Telegraph

Clutching for stardust with Alan Sugar as enterprise tsar, it's as if the prime minister no longer knows the difference between a fantasy television programme and the real world. Is this "reality" government?

Polly Toynbee, Guardian

Several of the women attending Cabinet — myself included — have been treated by you as little more than female window dressing.

Caroline Flint, MP

Nor should it be forgotten that Mr Purnell – like many, but not all, those who resigned – had been touched by the expenses scandal. There is nothing like a bit of pseudo-altruistic indignation to deflect incoming criticism.

Independent Leader article

If Alan Sugar is the answer, then the Prime Minister is asking the wrong question.

So shocking that women could ever be considered as window dressing! I am all for women taking more 'control' and when justified demonizing males who don't play by the pc rules. A bit sick really. Common sense should prevail but clearly that's not happening. Polly you should be ashamed of yourself and grow up.
