Jibe Gothic iow? Celibacy no longer seems to exist in our lexicon. They were not required to enjoy it.. The pleasure of sex was a right solely reserved for their husbands. Of course, dotted among the majority were a few enlightened spirits, but for those few women who did discover the joy of sex that night, ft — or rather — they came as a nice surprise. A nd then suddenly, out of the murky , mists of this New Dawn, ventured enlighten- ment. The Blessed Marie Stopes. Which, of course, she was. The amount of it may have been. In feet, the amount certainly was.
Bor what about the. The freedom to do It was as. Because we were stiff learning. Who from that time does not remember the magazine Forum? Our monthly sex manual. Take her nipple between thumb and forefinger and roH it around until she begins to move with uncontrollable pleasur e.. All gains are lasses. T his time, when Big Ben chimes toe hour of the new century and millennium, there will be a lot of anxious people standing around thinking about the best way to organise the celebratory bonk.
Or they will put their hearts and souls into looking as if rftey have no expectations and avoid staring at the haL Either way. In a recent study on sexuality, it was stated that folk in their sixties and seventies were now having the best sex of their lives. This seems a very positive, not to say mind-boggling, discovery. Especially since 1 pictured myself fetching up with a rubber hip joint and a hearing aid. Not to let the side down. I must besport a dainty varicose ankle and give the glad eye to some old geezer on toe next bench to mine.
And he. And Oh Lor. Getting Back Brahms, will be published bv Faber on April Strange, then, that the report just out from the Equal Opportunities Commission confirms none or this. Women stfll earn, on average. The evidence points to the fact that men are still being paid a premium just for being male. Clearly this is wrong. What case could there be to argue for it?
And yet there are plenty of people who would be happy to see a greater disparity in men and women's pay: indeed, they would like to see women out of the workplace altogether. Men whose supremacy has been questioned are bound to be resentful, and who wouldn't protect their own power base?
The female argument for unequal pay. Women who regard the office as a male preserve need to feel that the domestic sphere is valued or. Any appreciation of a female workforce feds like a criticism of them: inequality of pay is the last remaining corroboration of their way of life. There is, however, some truth in the depiction of women finding employment at the cost of men losing theirs.
What people should recognise, though, is that this is a consequence of toe unfair pay differential. They do it because it cuts their wages bill. Paying the price for not minding the wage gap Nigella Lawson even as they resent it. Of course, too much attention is always paid to women at he other, loftier, end of the scale.
But only historically is this true. Womert may be taking jobs once done by men but that doesn't make any job a man's job. But while unemployment is high, who is in a position to complain? Thar is especially true in managerial occupations which, incidentally, have a particularly large sex-pay differeniiai. It is also undeniable that even though society, the way we live our lives, has changed, at die back of our minds is the idea that a man is the breadwinner.
He must earn to support a wife and children: women, if they are nos selfish careerists hellbent on their own advancement, are otherwise just working for pin money. There is bound to be a lag between reality and toe image we have of iL But in the case of pay. This is a means by which one can tell someone is trying to ring when one is already on the phone. This works wonderfully in America but not at all over here. Because everyone here is so afraid of seeming rude by letting their first caller know that a second is on the line that they ignore die signal. T do believe the key to the Great Millennium Exhibition.
I even know whar that key.
It would look like a Yale key. I know this because, if the nation were asked to vote for its favourite key. It would leave the Chubb and the IngersoD at the post And that is the fey to the key: for the key to the Great Millennium Exhibition is vox petputi. And since it seems to be generally agreed that whar the Greenwich Megadame should contain is the quintessence of Britain, it must surely follow, in these poll-driven times, that it has to be left to the British people to determine what that quintessence is.
There must, before the Megadome is topped out, be national referendums about everything it is to enshrine. I tried to picture someone enjoying it. It took but a moment to realise why: it was because Des himself had, a month back, been elected by the British as their personality of the century. Who better, then, to place in a snug fireside chair, deep in Middle Earth, accompanied only by the voice of Doris Day trilling Move Over, Darting — which the British recently voted song of the century — as the core exhibit and icon of Megadome ?
A poll must be held. It will almost certainly come up with a reproduction Regency wing item in green leather, with distressed buttons.
What these are romping on, mind, as Des chuckles over his elves, is less guessable: once, it would have been figured Wilton, later a nice shagpile. Mega- dome visitors crane to see. Will it be a stick of KirKai or a nibble of Mars? Well, very likely both — unless, between now and then, some sly opportunist knocks up a green-faced woman riding an elephant, especially if he throw's in a couple of gleaners for good measure.
And has Des been voted a car? He has: beyond his muliioned window through which, at every hour on rhe hour, the holo- grammed face of dear Eric Morecambe will pop, asking Des to bring him sunshine , the British people's most cherished motor sits in the rose-girt drive. It is a Morris Minor. Very soon now. Des will put down Tolkien, turn off Doris, wind the carriage clock which beat its grandfather only after a recount, and drive across the Megadome to a thatched , pub with a big blonde barmaid and a shove- ha'penny board for a pint of lukewarm bitter and a Smith's Original crisp.
He will not, however, stay long. He must get back for an early dinner. Because tonight, as every night, Des has tickets for The Mousetrap. Give charity a chance S lowly the fog begins to thin. From its depths we see dark shapes of things to come. Round him chatter dwarfs — Blunkett, Smith. Harman, Straw — tugging at his purse. We mortals thought we knew it all.
We stumble blinking from the grim Nineties to be told of a land of bright promise ahead. Yet what horror do these creatures of the fog foretell? They are not true Hobbits. Ministers still had red blood in their veins, a White Paper would be published and blue water put between the parties. The papers duly printed this rainbow tale. The relevant dwarf. He condemned those who could savage the -most vulnerable in our society". Destitute women, orphans and the disabled, he implied, were to be thrown to the wolves of private profit At last thought Mr Smith, here was a socialist bone on which he could chew.
Yet between breakfast and dinner, somebody got at Mr Smith. By Sunday the policy was transformed. It would be looked at pragmatically. Was Mr Smith outraged? Was he all sweet reason? Of course. He is more than Chancellor-in-waiting. Subcontracting personal social services for the elderly and children is likely to save money. Personal social services are all three. They are a backwater of a backwater. These services may employ a quarter of. They may cost E8 billion, the equivalent of 4p on income tax. But they are about, the incontinent old. A target was set of 85 per cent of places to be privately provided.
Only 46 per cent has been achieved. As for children in care, 60 per cent are privately fostered, but almost all the rest are in focal council homes. New figures apparently also show that casts in the private sector are roughly 20 per cent lower than in the public In addition, as one scandal after another testifies, local council homes are not independently inspected. They are truly out of sight and out of mind.
From the foundling hospital to the great charitable asylums. But tocare does not mean to provide. He who pays the piper can. The State is entitled to value for money. Small wonder that officials charged with spending such sums want to see them goi; to homes run by friends and patty colleagues. Small wonder, that they prefer fostering to adaption, because fostering, keeps children under their control and the money flowing.

The essentially federal narure of the EEC and the aspiration of the original members to press on to ever greater unity had been on public display for over 20 years before we joined, as Sir Edward Heath has made clear.
It has taken, so it seems, a further 20 years for us to wake up to what we did. When one considers what that says about the honesty and competence of the mother of Parliaments and the alertness of what is supposed to be one of rhe most sophisticated electorates in the world, it rather suggests that that pessimism was totally justified.
