On the eve of the Conservatives' Spring Forum in Gateshead, Mr Cameron said he would allow parents to take up to 26 weeks leave together if they wished.
He said flexible parental leave would help make Britain more family-friendly.
As a single man who has never claimed any benefits in his life and who has no children (that I know about), can I just say how absolutely fucking irritated I am with all of these family-fucking-friendly policies?
Why, in the name of all that is un-fucking-holy, should my money be stolen in order to fund the other people's lifestyle choices?
I can just about deal with funding free education—although I would prefer it if we had schools that actually educated the children who sit in them for years on end—but why the cunting hell should I have to fund the leisure time of those who have chosen to have children?
Where are the tax breaks that give me more time to spend with my beer, eh?
UPDATE: more on this policy, and its implications for the pay gap, from Timmy.
