If you can’t stand the heat, as they say, get out of the kitchen.
And if you don’t like the hours, get another job.
That’s Alf’s advice to Labour’s Nanaia Mahuta, who has been sounding just a tad pathetic while braying about it being unfair to expect nursing mothers to be in Parliament late into the night.
It’s good to see The Boss has climbed in on this issue, saying (here) he does not believe Parliament’s hours should be reduced to make it more “family friendly”.
Having children while in Parliament was “challenging but do-able”, he said, and it was up to each party to ensure nursing mothers had the support and time out needed.
It may well be challenging.
But more important, it was a matter of choice, presumably, that Ms Mahuta opted to become a mum as well as an MP.
