Women

Then and now – is it really progress?

The subject of how society evolves over time is a complicated thing, especially when you’re an oldie.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more …

There has been a period of relative radio silence from me over the past two months – primarily about my ongoing fitness campaign – and so today I thought I’d provide an update. In short, recently there hasn’t been one (a fitness campaign, I mean). As sometimes happens with the careers of [...]

It’s complicated …

Hands up all bog-standard average guys born before 1965 like me – sports loving, liberal with a small ‘L’, tolerant (‘live and let live’), likes a drink down the pub on a Friday night and the odd bet on the gee-gees, grew up in the days when men and women behaved like [...]

It’s distorted, that’s what it is …

I make no apology for entering the lists today in order to comment upon the latest figures that have been issued in respect of the UK gender pay gap. These come from companies who have over 250 employees – and who will be required by law to publish them on or before April 2018 – but who are in [...]

It had to come sooner or later

It was bound to happen one day. It is common knowledge among Rusters that one of our columnists on this esteemed organ – who shall remain nameless despite having previously blogged about it himself – is in a relationship with a female robot and, so far as any of us know, is blissfully [...]

Hello 2018!

Being an incorrigible cynic and unabashed hair-shirt sort of a guy, I have felt ever since my mid-twenties that I was always going to be naturally suited to the role of being an old, ‘off the pace’ curmudgeon – basically an object of (behind my back) amusement to young generations – by [...]
