Bet most of them will be late.

And pissed, as demonstrations are little more than entertainment for the idle, and rarely achieve anything.

Big story on BBC, unsurprisingly from a female journo.

Fireman Samantha.....

Scoop of the century indeed:

Firewomen have posted pictures of themselves on social media after a 4-year-old girl from London said she thought only men could sign up.

Strange how Hannah doesn't remember her millennial childhood and fire fighter Penny Morris from that all time favourite childrens TV series fireman sam.

Anyway can't let that get in the way of a good virtue signalling tweet even though the world is full of books with Penny in them.

Anyway for Ms Summers benefit, fire-fighter Morris first appeared in 1990 and became a full time fire-fighter in 1992 and is the main driver of Venus.

Unfortunately for the 21st century she is a natural blonde.

I've not seen a woman on the bins.

Presumably because they don't want to do it.

Haven't seen a female fatberg shoveller. Tbh I haven't seen a male one either, what with them living underground n'all.

True.

I do however regularly see binmen out working both in my street and on my drive to work and unless there is never any staff turnover I will have seen a lot over the years and none have been women; even the self-identifying type.

There are probably many jobs that you have never seen a Women do but I am sure that there are few if any that would bar a Woman from applying.

Agreed.

I however think that it is down to fundamental differences between the sexes as to why some jobs are exclusively, or near as damnit, done by men or done by women.

I don't agree that it's down to gender conditioning by society that men are binmen and women work in nurseries. It's biological; which includes how the brain works.

I've got a rule which is that I won't do a job that I've seen a women do. I ended up in the building trade, there are no women doing my job. The only women I've seen have been civil engineers and admin staff. Ive heard of a few affirmative action apprentice hires but they soon move on when they find out how hard it is. There are no women doing hard physical or dangerous labour, none.

Edit: I get the impression that women in the army of fire service are covered by their male colleagues. That doesn't work in the private sector where everyone is working as hard as they can to earn a $.

That's a rather odd rule!

Though I take the point that women in jobs where physical strength is required are going to be placing a burden upon their male colleagues.

I've only ever been an office worker so generally the jobs are carried out equally by men and women with any differences in performance down to intelligence, character and attitude rather than sex.
