'Man and wife'?! - BBC takes us back to the 1950s...

A BBC reporter on 2pm news on Saturday Ap.30 [just now] on Radio 4 spoke of William and Kate as 'Man and wife'. It's official then: women are appendages. Feminism never happened. She promised to 'obey' him... Oh wait: she didn't. This was BBC spin. Pure and simple.
 
This was an utterly inappropriate turn of phrase. I can barely believe that it occured.
 
Women and all decent-minded people living in the 21st century will know that the Beeb are even more conservative than the new Duchess of Cambridge - unless this gets apologised for.
