I am a man, have been all my life. Yet I would like women to share equal pay, enjoy equal opportunities and the same life chances as me. Indeed, as the father of three girls and husband to a fantastically brilliant Doctor, I think this is incredibly important. Apparently this makes me a hypocrite.
I am white. But I believe that your skin colour should be irrelevant to your life chances, and that everyone should enjoy the same opportunities to make the most of their lives. Hypocrite.
I am in excellent health and I am not disabled. But I think society should do all it can for those in less fortunate physical or mental health to maximize their life chances. Again, what a hypocrite I am.
No wonder everyone’s having a go at Nick Clegg for trying to change the status quo.
