Britain's political wives juggle work and family too. So let's see it — Pictures of the country's most powerful man scraping his youngest daughter's hair into a ponytailmust have had Tory campaign chief Lynton Crosby chuckling over his election grid. But how I wish Sam Cam had been asked a few questions that would have enabled her to demonstrate her reputedly first class business and creative brain - as well as her 'wife and mother' credentials .

Purvi Patel jailed for 'killing her foetus' — It's tempting to think this kind of legal onslaught against women's reproductive rights would never happen in Britain. But perhaps we shouldn't be so sure. Clare Murphy, director of external affairs at the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, tells me: "We are shocked by this latest US case, but it bears remembering something not dissimilar could happen here, if the political climate towards women changed."

Is Osborne committed to extra �30bn for NHS by 2020? — The chancellor was speaking to Channel 4 News on the day parliament was dissolved, signalling the official start of the 2015 general election campaign. He was also questioned about David Cameron's assertion on the doorstep of No.10 Downing Street earlier in the day that Labour leader Ed Miliband was planning £3,000 in tax rises for every working family.

Max Levitas: from fighting fascists to fighting the council — Tower Hamlets, the local council where Mr Levitas lives, has demanded £25,000 for repairs to the block of leasehold flats where the pensioner lives. I was in a very, very fighting mood. I've learned how to fight. Max Levitas Mr Levitas owns the leasehold on the ex-council flat where he lives.

Listen up politicians, here's what women really want to vote on — Remember Worcester Woman ? Put-upon mothers with two children were supposed to have sealed the deal for Tony Blair in 1997. And in this year's much closer election, your average woman - whether Worcester, Wimbledon or Whitehaven - could end up being no less crucial.

Job-share MP: Meet the woman who wants a political double-act — The woman behind the ad is Rachel Ling, who used to run an education and coaching business. She's dabbled in politics before, having stood for the local council as an independent candidate. But as a mother, she recognised that standing for Parliament wasn't necessarily compatible with the demands on her time.

Samantha Cameron's roots are starting to show. And it ain't pretty — First, it's important to stress that Sam Cam is a very impressive woman: clever, talented and personable, she manages to combine what must be a hectic personal life with a stellar - and highly lucrative - career as a "creative consultant". But politically-speaking, her brilliance poses a problem.
