The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Oh what a hoo-hah

The Furlongs had five children. Does that make us better than other people? No. But we know more about having five children than anyone else who’ve had no children/one child/two children/four children.

We don’t know what its like to have no children/one child/two children/four children.

We don’t know what it’s like to be lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, queer, heterosexual, or questioning either.

But we know a lot about having five children. I too “Genuinely (I ) feel that being a mum means you have a very real stake in the future of our country, a tangible stake.”

What a hoo-ha is going on in politics now – ludicrous! One could call it abuse.

Motherhood row 

A transcript of the interview released by the newspaper following Mrs Leadsom’s complaints showed the energy minister saying: “I am sure Theresa will be really sad she doesn’t have children so I don’t want this to be ‘Andrea has children, Theresa hasn’t’ because I think that would be really horrible but genuinely I feel that being a mum means you have a very real stake in the future of our country, a tangible stake.

“She possibly has nieces, nephews, lots of people, but I have children who are going to have children who will directly be a part of what happens next.”

I agree – us too!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
