It depends what you want out of a politician, Libs.I think it was you that pointed out ( when I posted that she seemed ill ) that she has diabetes which may affect her. I do sympathise with her but also understand she made an awful lot of dodgy comments in her younger days, some of which may not have been forgotten and help lift the figure you report.
I don't think she's doing the party many favours to be honest but you have to admire her ( and her party ) for persevering... I don't know how " abuse " is counted and who determines what it is but that sort of proportion goes way beyond acceptable that's for sure.
do you want one that has the Macleans smile and knows all the right things to say, slick, manufactured and word perfect or do you want one that is scrupulously honest and speaks their mind as they see it?
You see the latter, because of the very nature of it, will cock up occasionally, even forget figures, why? Because theyre human.
Thats how i see diane, someone who you can trust not to be spinning turds.
Problem is weve programmed to see someone in an armani suit, with slick delivery but when you lookinto their eyes and words all you really see and hear is bullshit.
do we get the politicians we deserve?
