Letter: Come the glorious day, sister, men will do their share

ANY sensible man should know to steer clear of the distinctly dodgy debate on the division of chores between the sexes.

I am, however, always amazed when newspaper articles on the subject emphasise, as their piece de resistance, that men absolutely will not clean lavatories.

Given a large dose of ecologically unfriendly cleaner and strong brush, lavatory cleaning is a doddle and infinitely easier than vacuuming or washing up.

If tactical retreat is necessary, men should seriously consider this option, which is apparently allocated a points value greatly exceeding its true cost in labour.
