Don't ask, don't tell?
In yet another example of its wierd idea of balanced reporting, "all this week, the BBC is asking women in various countries how they feel about being asked to have more babies" in response to Europe-wide low birth rates. Sigh. Once again, men and fathers are not relevant (until it's time to foot the bill) and I don't suppose Auntie Beeb will stop to ask even herself, let alone any men, if that very irrelevance might be any kind of a factor. (Even if it isn't, they might at least show us the respect of asking the question.)
