Mr Pilbrow insists its concerns about regulation are valid. Vodafone had "educated'' the charity on the issue. "They asked us, if we felt compelled to be involved, then they would appreciate our part of the argument. "They said we raised valid concerns and they needed to be heard and it is a lot easier for us to say those things than Vodafone, because if Vodafone say things like that, [people] would say it was just Vodafone saying that.''In which Parents Inc, the ever so slightly creepy charity run by Ian and Mary Grant, is shown to be owned by its sponsors; Hat-tip to Mr Farrar. Meanwhile, Megan Wegan has much to say about the Grants' new book.
Is it just me, or does Parents Inc look more like a business than a charity? And does it have any factual grounds for the assertions it makes - that women should get back to the 1950s? And do the Grants have any real knowledge to bring to their chosen field, or is it all prejudice?
Answers on a postcard to the usual address. In the meantime, I shall be looking for a new phone provider.
