Financial Portfolios Still A “Man’s World” Laments Fruitcake

 

Oh, dear:

Women remain underrepresented in economic and finance ministers’ offices, a political sphere that former cabinet staff say continues to be an “old boys’ club” and especially unavailable to women at the senior level.

Long before and after Michele Austin worked as a chief of staff to Conservative minister Rona Ambrose, she noticed women weren’t in finance files.

“Prime ministers, no matter what their party, turn a blind eye to putting women in charge of economic portfolios federally,” she said. “Women’s perspectives on the economy and the bottom line are incredibly important. If you think of who makes purchasing decisions in households, it’s predominantly women, so they need to have a voice at the cabinet table.”

 

Like the genius of Climate Barbie or the crying acumen of Chrystia Freeland?

    Yes. “In charge.” In nice cushy air conditioned offices, where you never break a sweat, and your office is decorated just so. Never a squawk about under representation of men in jobs like teaching or nursing. Never a squawk about women’s under representation in roofing, paving, septic tank pumping, or other similar jobs. Just the nice ones, where they’re “in charge.”

      If you want to just keep what you have, put a woman in charge of the money. If you want to grow your money then put a man in charge. Women tend to be risk adverse especially when it comes to finances.

    This nonsense is a big reason for the decline of Western civilisation. When you cease hiring and appointing people based on their competency, ability and knowledge, you end up with this crap. Now hiring and appointing anyone is based on the latest and loudest group claiming victimhood. To hell with competency, ability and knowledge.

    The feminist conceit that these male top rung vote whores and their gofers are supposed to be something other than factional ambassadors to Ottawa representing their powerful interest groups is political moonshine to be polite. That may work in fantasy palaces like the “Foreign Office” but there are other places where the games are much more complicated than poker and delay, slipups, and wrong turns have major long lasting impacts on tens of millions of people.

    In our new gender-fluid world, how do we know that women are under-represented? After all, “old Bob here feels like a woman today. And so does Steve. And so does Fred. Heck, we’re all feeling like women today!” There, problem solved!

    “If you think of who makes purchasing decisions in households, it’s predominantly women”
    And if you think about who pays for most of it, it is not you.

    ““Women’s perspectives on the economy and the bottom line are incredibly important”
    Yes, we know…

    Ontario 308.2 Billion in debt
    BC 66.4 Billion in debt
    Canada 645.8 Billion (Started by the women in the trudeau family that got elected)

    Aren’t women doing a bang up job running Sweden right now? Aren’t they? well? Someone answer me. Someone said they were in total control of Sweden. Did I hear wrong? Isn’t Sweden being run right (into the ground)?


    (What’s that sweetie? OK. I’ll be right off and get right to that. I’m turning the computer off now, sweetie. No. nothing important in the comments today.) (Fade to black)

    Quick edit – (I’ll be right there, honey.)
