Baroness Verma: The UK Government strongly support those efforts, as we have encapsulated in a new national action plan on women, peace and security, which was launched in November 2010. The Government are reorientating the development programme to put women at its heart, empowering women to make their own choices for their health and the health and well-being of their families.
Oh Christ, does this mean the coalition's going to wipe out development aid? They only ever use this sort of language when they're going to take all the money away.

I'm increasingly convinced that this government's policies on women are being decided on by a chap who is a big fan of the "Gor" books. Consequently, I expect that by next year all women will need to legally declare themselves the property of a man, and wear a collar with their name and his phone number on it, in case they wander off.
