London, UK – In a stunning move towards gender equality, the Labour party has announced that public breastfeeding will be mandated for every British politician who becomes a mum.
“We want to encourage women in politics to embrace their motherhood and take pride in their ability to nourish their babies,” said a Labour spokesperson. “By mandating public breastfeeding for every politician who becomes a mum, we’re sending a message that motherhood is a strength, not a weakness.”
The announcement has sparked fierce debate, with some critics accusing the Labour party of overstepping their bounds and infringing on personal freedoms.
“This is just another example of the nanny state trying to control every aspect of our lives,” said Conservative MP Nigel Smith. “What’s next, mandating the color of our underwear?”
But supporters of the new policy argue that it’s long overdue.
“Breastfeeding is a natural, healthy way to feed babies,” said Labour MP Sarah Jones. “We shouldn’t be ashamed to do it in public, and we shouldn’t be forced to hide away or pump milk in a bathroom stall. By normalizing public breastfeeding, we’re creating a more welcoming and inclusive society for all.”
The new policy is set to go into effect on January 1st, 2024, and will apply to all British politicians who become mums, regardless of party affiliation.
