Well I'm a woman wintering in Antarctica at the moment and don't agree that women make the base more civilised. That's a sexist comment in itself. (That chair was obviously dangerous and at least I broke it in a safe manor). The fact is that everyone is different and assuming someone's character based on their sex alone is a mistake that people make quite often. I'm also not sure why this sort of excuse needs to be made to justify an employment drive.
What BAS need to do is to is to shed the ?old boys club, Talley ho? image and start recruiting from all walks of life. So any employment drive is good for BAS, since it advertises that these jobs exist and that you don?t have to be a scientist smoking on his pipe to come here.
Oi and Craig, the freebees from the Comso are mine? I clearly need them more than you do.
