They don't blatantly say women should stay at home. Well they do, or to be precise they did, but since it was all too obvious, the public reaction forced them to become craftier at their messages. And, rather scientifically, as in whaling, the politicians turned toward actions and away from words.

As a nation, we need to completely change our attitude to what is 'old', and by doing so we can also change our attitude to what a fantastic resource older people are; they're not a drain on our future, they are potentially really valuable resource in themselves.

I think it's fair to say that I fell in love with Kenya when I spent a month on expedition there two years ago.

There is about a 20 percent chance the world's 7,000,000,000th human inhabitant will be born in India - by far the highest chance for any individual country. If so, let's hope for a girl, although that chance would be less than 50 per cent...
