    Jeremy Corbyn slams 'sexist' after-work drinking culture for being 'unfair on mothers' | London Evening Standard

    Or is everyone too scared to raise topics like this on here anymore?

    Can Jezza get any more ridiculous?

    He has a point.

    It also excludes those for whom alcohol is a no-no.

    I am excluded as I am an unsocialable git who does not drink.

    And I don't think it is unfair at all.

    JC should concentrate on the real reason people voted for Brexit. Inequality. Get tough on immigration (it only benefits the rich).

    He could get 75% of the vote.

    On that score yes he does. It is discriminatory to a degree, but that discrimination is not confined to gender. That was MY point.
    Indeed it might be termed slightly sexist of him to contend that it is only women that leave the workplace to attend to the offspring.

    In a world where all things are equal, it might not be confined to gender - aside from the fact that many women continue evening breastfeeding after returning to work. However, IME, when there are 'pub' dos after work, it is much more likely that the women are unable to attend because of family commitments than the men.

    It shouldn't impact (non lactating) women more than men, but it does.

    As a contractor I often felt left out of after work drinks because I had a 90 mile drive home.

    Isn't it about time Jezza spoke up for us?
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.
