Interesting comments from some well known politicians

"Who do you work for?" (assuming she was a secretary)

"The people of Derbyshire" replied Edwina Currie.

Very disappointing 'party line statement' from Mary McLeod, and given that I was very heavily involved in Conservative politics in the years she was selected and elected (and met her several times), almost certainly an outright lie. Never experienced sexism in Westminster? Whatever Mary!
