Sir: Your article just goes to show that women are inefficient and lazy. It takes me less than one hour per week to put the dishes in the dishwasher and get them out again (as opposed to 5.7), under two hours a week to cook (12.2) and about 25 minutes to bung the washing in the washing machine and then in the dryer, as opposed to the staggering 560 minutes that a woman would take to do the same job. The figures speak for themselves.

Yours faithfully,


Canterbury, Kent
