Banning babies from parliament shows just how out of touch Westminster is | Stella Creasy
If we want more women with children to become MPs, we need family-friendly policies for parents like me in the House of CommonsAs the Speaker welcomes cats into the chamber, last night his deputy criticised my parenting for bringing my toddler to the voting lobbies. She demanded I hand her over to her instead, despite being a stranger to my child. Such outward hostility towards making parliament family-friendly does little to improve the perception Westminster is out of touch with those it seeks to serve. When 41% of the population think democracy doesn’t work, refusing to accept the status quo becomes even more important, not just for equality, but to protect democracy itself.Today’s news that the procedure committee has decided parents accompanied by babies are forbidden in the House of Commons – in contrast to many other legislatures around the world and previous custom – yet again reinforces the impression Westminster isn’t a 21st century workplace, but a rarefied debating club for the elite. This decision will not affect me. Both my children are now too old to sit quietly so I can speak, but it speaks volumes about how determined some are to send the message that mothers are not welcome unless they pretend their children don’t exist.Stella Creasy is the Labour and Cooperative MP for Walthamstow in London Continue reading...

Twenty-six seconds of fame: how Doctor Strange got upstaged by a swivel-eyed extra
The wedding scene guest, whose performance of a lifetime stole the show from Benedict Cumberbatch, enters that bizarre pantheon of extras who gave it some extraA lot of the criticism directed towards Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pertains to that final word. Aside from a brief montage of Doctor Strange being quickly flung through a bunch of multiverses, the film just wasn’t mad enough for most people.Well, more fool us. A clip from the movie has just gone viral, and it contains perhaps the maddest thing put to film in the last decade. We just didn’t notice it at the time, because it happened in the background. If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know that there is a small, quiet scene in which Doctor Strange attends the wedding of his ex-girlfriend. In the foreground, Benedict Cumberbatch does lots of complicated internal work to show his discomfort with the situation. But watch the scene again. Look at the extra sitting behind him. She absolutely loses her mind. Continue reading...
