Thomas the Tank Engine has come in for some criticism recently from the shadow transport secretatry Mary Creagh.

She reckons the popular children’s series is to blame for the lack of female train drivers in this country.

Ms Creagh says the show is also a poor example to children because of its lack of female characters.

Has she got nothing better to do than sit around watching children’s television?

She costs us taxpayers money and this is the best she can come up with?

Hasn’t she thought that some jobs appeal to one sex more than they would the other?

Come to think of it I haven’t ever seen a male dental nurse, but I don’t watch the television looking for answers!
