Wooly Bears and Equal Pay - 14 Long Years



As I reflected on the momentous news from Glasgow yesterday, I asked myself: "What else can possibly have taken 14 long years to achieve?"  

And you know what, the fight for equal pay in Glasgow City Council is not alone because as no less an authority than the great man Sir David Attenborough explains - the Wooly Bear caterpillar takes 14 years to transform itself into a moth. 

But Glasgow's equal pay claimants are up there with these remarkable creatures if you ask me - for their great sense of humour, determination and 'never say die' spirit.
