To find Anna Soubry really condescending...

I'm watching question time and she is literally making me cringe.
Is it just me?

Behooven Thu 07-Apr-16 23:01:50

Oh she is pompous (and not very good)

Chippednailvarnish Thu 07-Apr-16 23:03:41

I don't actually even listen to what she is saying as her delivery feels like a party political broadcast by the cbeebies party.

Behooven Thu 07-Apr-16 23:05:06

Oh dear, the guy with the hat 😜

I met her a while back and was impressed with her in person, but subsequently every time I've heard her on radio or television my good opinion has been eroded a little bit more. Very disappointing.

Sistersweet Thu 07-Apr-16 23:05:58

I've met her in person and she's every bit as pompous as she comes across on TV

Referring to Chris Bryant as "darling" was totally patronising. I find her really irritating generally.

Chippednailvarnish Thu 07-Apr-16 23:06:19

Guy with the hat must have been doing it for a bet!

I agree.

But then I feel anti-feminist because I realise that I have higher expectations of women in politics than I do of men.

<conflicted>

Nods in agreement.

Behooven Thu 07-Apr-16 23:07:35

she must be capable or she wouldn't have such a senior position, but she does channel Mrs T a little

HeadFullofSteam Thu 07-Apr-16 23:07:38

Is that guy off his face?

MrsBungle Thu 07-Apr-16 23:08:06

Dh met with her recently and she called him "love". He is not a fan of her.

HeadFullofSteam Thu 07-Apr-16 23:08:41

Oh ffs, I meant hat guy.

Chippednailvarnish Thu 07-Apr-16 23:08:55

I don't think I do have higher expectations of women, it's just her.

Ruth Lea doesn't make my teeth itch!

MrsBungle Thu 07-Apr-16 23:09:33

Hat guy is v enthusiastic.

PurpleDaisies Thu 07-Apr-16 23:09:51

she must be capable or she wouldn't have such a senior position

I don't think that necessarily follows... smile

HeadFullofSteam Thu 07-Apr-16 23:10:57

I agree she definitely channels Mrs T.

WavingFlag Thu 07-Apr-16 23:12:15

I remember when she used to be on "this morning" with Richard and Judy. She was crap then too. I don't remember her doing political stuff on there tho.

Chippednailvarnish Thu 07-Apr-16 23:12:38

Stop saying "Chris", grrrrrrrrr.

YabuDabbaDoo Thu 07-Apr-16 23:13:14

Confession: I've been furrowing my brow thinking "Mr T's wife was in politics?!"

I've worked it out now.

noeuf Thu 07-Apr-16 23:13:33

She is really off putting and pompous.

noeuf Thu 07-Apr-16 23:14:25

Who's the woman on the end?

megletthesecond Thu 07-Apr-16 23:14:41

She is.

I hope Irvine starts swearing in a minute.

Ruth Lee, an economist I think
