MP expences reform has unexpected benefit for women

Following todays announcement about the reform of MP's expences, we are finally seeing a debate emerging about parlimentary business hours. Due to the axe now falling on domestic arrangements that allow MP's to debate into the night the suggestion is being made that instead, wait for it, they might be better off working during normal office hours, like every other legislature in the world. Radical.

This will make the lives of those with families a great deal easier and might have the added bonus of attracting more women to politics, women who have things to say and issues to further but would like to see their families too. All good in my view.
