Abbott's latest self inflicted incident does seem to have curried some sympathy,  even pitying affection for her - it may be legitimate to say that, on balance, the Maojito did more good than harm?  Wink

I'd certainly prefer to have her as my constituency MP than the useless bloke I currently have. He's almost bottom of the list for responses to constituents.

Notwithstanding (for example) her racism, hypocrisy, dishonesty (and having to apologise to the House as a result), and all the numerous occasions she has "mis-spoken", I'm not sure of her aptitude as a constituency MP (but yours must be pretty awful if you'd prefer her!!!), however the list of those MPs who aspired to step up to Cabinet rank only to find that they were hopelessly out of their depth is a long one, from all sides, however I'd venture to suggest she'd be towards the top of any cross party league table in that respect!  Smiley
