"Would Brexit have been such a complete shambles if a man had been PM?" Purple*

*I am aware that some scholars continue to contest the validity of this attribution.
You often hear it said there should be more women in power at board level and in politics and it'd all be so much better. I used to nod and agree, less hubris, less old boys club etc. Then there's the TV feed of the funeral and we have Theresa May, Arlene Foster, Mary Lou & Michelle O'Neill (Leo there too) - anyways, there was a huummm (rubs chin) moment.....

If you want to know why there aren't more women in politics just go into a Newsagent and look at the magazines they buy.

I think Brexit may be both serious and hopeless.

From "have I got news for you"

After Theresa May was described as "the UK's worst PM ever" a look at the leadership contenders has meant this quote is now changed to "worst PM so far this year"

If you have a reputation for having money (regardless of the actuality) you never have to pay on demand.

Listening to BBC radio adaptation of The School for Scandal (1777!) by Richard Brinsley Sheridan.

I liked this remark about laughing at a joke which comes at another's expense...
"To smile at the jest which plants a thorn in another’s breast is to become a principal in the mischief."
