We've had Gordon Brown give his resignation speech outside No 10 accompanied by his wife.
We've had Gordon Brown visit Buckingham Palace to offer his resignation which was accepted. Again he was accompanied by his wife.
David Cameron has been to the Palace to accept an invitation from the Queen to form a new government. He was accompanied by his wife.
During the past six days I have watched the machinations of testosterone fueled discussions on the media. Women appeared to be wheeled out as an after-thought.
In the UK over 50% of the population is female, yet the television coverage could well have been back in the 50s or 60s when no women, not even Prime Minister's wives, were publicly paraded.
Much as I want to see more women having positions of power in Westminster politics, can we stop the fashion of Prime Ministers' and party leaders' wives being part of the power of the UK?
It certainly does not do the cause of equality any good.
We now have another Prime Minister. I hope his wife is not going to be his full-time PR.
