We reckon that there is truth in what Alasdair Thompson says - the modern workplace is very accomodating to women - as it should be but lets face it - we aint that flash to be around for a couple of days a month. And for some women the physical agony of the monthly curse does see some take sick leave.
It probably up there with Manflu for common reasons given for taking sick leave.
Thompsons career is in tatters - but the PR idiot who let him do those dreadful TV interviews tonight needs to be tied to a kauri stump so good women can chuck tampons at him.
Sad really - by all accounts Thompson is one of the good guys.
