Still a Buerk

// 18 August 2005

Michael Buerk was on the Today programme this morning, trying to set the record straight on what he actually said. He didn\x92t do much to convince me that he\x92s been misrepresented, to be honest. Listen for yourselves here.

Just to clarify:

He doesn\x92t think women rule the world, just that they set the agenda. He doesn\x92t think it directly affects anyone\x92s sperm count, because that would be silly. But he still thinks there\x92s an alarming trend for women to want to create families without men in which is an unequivocally Bad Thing.

Don\x92t worry, Louise; Zoe\x92s vexed about it too.
