Why Johnny Still Can't Read -- And What To Do About It
Canning Books. This item doesn't belong on this page. When I suggest he might be the kind of man who is not good on his own, he pops his Welsh cork. I am very good at caring for myself but I see this as part of the feminism thing.

I am a male, but I wouldn't expect a woman to do the washing up or change the baby's nappies or whatever. I just hate this distinction. I really, really hate this distinction. I can't have babies, I can give babies and that important difference must be respected. I bet I have changed more nappies than most women.
How can you put that to the test because in the case of my first marriage I was away all the time. But why in God's name should a man not change nappies? It is antediluvian. How childish is that? John, I meant emotionally alone. Not alone in terms of being unable to function without someone to look after you. Humphrys gave great chunks of his salary back, but that wasn't enough for BBC Woman's Hour presenter Jane Garvey, who wrote in The Guardian that the row was never about 'men taking pay cuts. And I'm afraid Jane is one of those people,' he shrugs. It is bizarre and silly.
It is counterproductive if the man cannot win, whatever he does. But Jane is very passionate and she is the head of the regiment. I nearly said the m-word [for monstrous] but I'm not going to. Funnily enough, it was a woman who triggered his life-changing move from television to radio in S, news bulletins and have a glamorous woman present the programme alongside the token grizzled male. Some accused him of attacking the very institution that had employed him for three decades — but not anyone who actually read his words,.
Enter Julia Somerville, who was to be promoted above Humphrys onscreen.

Tin hats on! Not because she wasn't good — she was bloody good — but why would you want to play second fiddle when you had been the leader of the orchestra, the concertmeister, the first violinist, hmm? And hurt, probably. Looking back, I think that was the start of the whole let's-balance-out-the-women thing.
That was the start of the gender equality. That is not meant to sound patronising of Julia, because she was a bloody good journalist. And extremely attractive. I mean we apply a different set of standards [to female broadcasters] and it's just bogus to pretend that we don't. For three decades the nation has woken up to the sound of John Humphrys's precise voice; occasionally grumpy, often amused, sometimes rising to high Welsh agitato if things got heated with prevaricating ministers.
Why in God's name should a man not change nappies? Despite his terrier reputation, he is kindlier than you might think, but is clearly not the easiest of men, nor the most clubbable of colleagues.
He never attended Today meetings and loathed the programme's tradition of having guest editors, particularly royal ones. My first question would have been: 'So, are you a two-faced hypocrite? But what would he do if he was offered a knighthood? So here we are. After his long reign over Today, the grand old Duke of Splott has now signed off for ever. Like the BBC, he may also have his faults, but who could ever replace him, with his rich hinterland and high standards and devotion to duty? Millions of us are going to miss him terribly.
The pips sounded, the tears welled and just like that, it was over.
