WE RULE TOO OK! (OR WE HUFFING WELL SHOULD!)
HUFF WARNING: IF YOU READ THIS POST IT MIGHT PUT YOU IN A HUFF TOO!* *Especially if you are the Prime Minister.
It’s 31st January, the day most of us writers have to think about the only boring books in the world (our accounts books, yawn) because we need to pay our tax (boo).
Now paying tax is never fun, but it’s not what’s making me huffy, I understand the need to put cash into the ‘public purse’ to help us all live more happily. But I do have one BIG issue here…
I am a girl, and I write books for girls and over half the people in the country are girls. But who gets to spend all my lovely tax money? BOYS!
Right now the MPs in our government (who basically get to make all our laws and spend all our money) are nearly ALL BOYS! (Only 20% are girls.)
Don’t get me wrong, I think boys are great, and just as brilliant as girls – but they are not MORE brilliant than girls. They are definitely not 80% more brilliant than girls. So they should definitely not be 80% in charge of us!
Instead of spending it on things we really want like books and libraries.
What do you think girls?
Should more of us be helping to run the country?
And. if you were in charge, what would you spend all the money on?
