Well Done, Glasgow!



So well done to Frances Stojilkovic and all the women who did Glasgow so proud in  the ongoing fight for equal pay with Glasgow City Council - 50 years after the landmark Equal Pay Act was introduced back in 1970.

At one point, in what was a fascinating and thoughtful programme, Anne Robinson seemed to doubt whether the latest generation of women really had the confidence to stand up for themselves and get the job done.

Yet Anne's meeting with the Glasgow's Home Carers proved inspirational, the icing on the cake, so to speak - integrity and honesty are the words that came to my mind.

Because Anne Robinson recognised not just the hard work, care and 'love' involved in the Home Carers' jobs - she also understood their determination not to be fobbed off any more with endless excuses from the council bureaucrats and 'jobsworths'.

I take my hat off to all those involved.
