Laura Perrins: Bake Off winner Nadiya is a full-time mum. Guardian please note


Congratulations to Nadiya Hussain for winning the Great British Bake Off. As someone who cannot bake a biscuit, I admire her talent in the kitchen.

I like to think that Nadiya and myself have a lot in common. I too have a hot husband, I also have three children and also like Nadiya I am a full-time mother.

I have noticed that the leftie media are gleeful at Nadiya’s well-deserved victory. But I have noticed an inconsistency in the commentary, shall we say.

Over at The Guardian, they gush, “She (Nadiya) is the quietly brilliant girl next door, and someone you want to be mates with. As wholesome as GBBO itself, she is what we might define as “quintessentially British”. Deeply humble – tick. Self-deprecating – tick. Unintentionally funny – tick.” This is all true. Did we mention, however, that she is also a married, full-time mother to three children under ten? Oh, The Guardian left that bit out did they – what an amazing surprise!

It is truly heart-warming to see The Guardian (did I mention it was The Guardian?) praising a thirty-year-old married full-time mother to three children who is an exceptional baker. I can tell you, I did not see that one coming!

Please feel free to link me any pieces from the Huffington Post or The Guardian or indeed any feminist on the planet that have heaped praise upon – let’s say – a white, middle-class, married full-time mother who loves to bake and I will eat my hat as well as Nadiya’s winning great British wedding cake. Just sayin’.

I do believe that Cabinet minister Nicky Morgan refers to women such as Nadiya and me as ‘wasting our potential.’

Anyway, no doubt Nadiya can launch her own career in baking off the back of the Bake Off victory and good for her. She is hoping that with the support of her husband the adventure can continue.

She also notes, “Family life will carry on as normal, being a mum to three small children under 10 is pretty time-consuming.”  You said it sister, and congratulations again.
