Letter 127: International Women's Day, Coalition style

"Dear Dave and Nick,
Thanks for this: 
@David_Cameron "On #IWD we celebrate the achievements of women and must redouble our efforts to end discrimination and persecution around the world." 
And this: 
@nick-clegg " helps remind us that we should always support greater equality and promote the achievements of women"
On International Women's Day, it would be reassuring to know that you've got my back. We're going to need all the help we can get, since your tax and benefits changes seem to impact women four times harder than men. Oh blimes, as members of the Quad, you both signed those changes off, didn't you? And what's this? A new £20 billion black hole in public finances? Which we all know you'll be backing George to pay for with more cuts and tax rises.... Sigh. You do know actions speak louder than words, don't you?

Yours with best wishes, speaking as one of the many UK women on a low income,etc "
