Just saw an interview with this woman and how irritating is she? I thought Diane Abbot was bad but she is dreadful!

She's my MP. And I'm voting labour shock

LovelyBath77 Sun 14-May-17 17:01:12

Hmm, good luck with that! ;-)

NannyOggsKnickers Sun 14-May-17 17:01:38

I like her. Well done her for holding Fallon to account on Assad.

LovelyBath77 Sun 14-May-17 17:02:36

She seems quite unstable to me.

AlwaysTheWinner Sun 14-May-17 17:03:23

I like her too. She usually comes across well on TV in my opinion. She would make a better Foreign Secretary than Boris. But then most people would!

HardcoreLadyType Sun 14-May-17 17:05:01

Well done her for holding Fallon to account on Assad.

Well, exactly.

His argument was "we were friends, then". Well, surely we are friends with Sinn Fein, now, so the Jeremy Corbyn thing is equally just a difference in timing.

I am no fan of Corbyn, by the way, but I'm even less a fan of hypocrisy.

That would be Emily White Van Thornberry?

TeamLannister Sun 14-May-17 17:06:58

I think she's great. She did a top job putting manners on that hypocrite Fallon.

Bishybarnybee Sun 14-May-17 17:08:03

She's not that bad. Are you Tory HQ?

ilovesooty Sun 14-May-17 17:09:54

I don't see why anyone would want to start an unpleasant thread about someone, add a link when it didn't get instant attention then say that the person seems unstable.

Nasty.

Shardonnay Sun 14-May-17 17:11:28

She's not as bad as Dianne Abbott thought vh.?

Dianneabbottsmathsteacher Sun 14-May-17 17:12:11

She's an embaressnt to labour she didn't know the name of her French counterpart and then accused the journalist of being sexist as he had asked her hard questions!

As a Labour Party member it makes me squirm. Fucking idiot

ExplodedCloud Sun 14-May-17 17:14:48

She did have the white van incident yes. But I do quite like her. She was (is?) A barrister and worked on Human Rights.
I'd like more politicians to be told they're talking bollocks when they are.

TheFairyCaravan Sun 14-May-17 17:17:01

Michael Fallon is talking bollocks about a lot of things. Every single question he answered, about the military, on Marr was lies.

I was so glad he was put on the spot by Emily Thornberry at the end of the program.

derxa Sun 14-May-17 17:21:44

She is everything that is wrong with modern politics. She has complete contempt for ordinary people.

Two4One2017 Sun 14-May-17 17:30:20

There are pictures of JC with Assad too..... not sure what her point was. Shall we talk about IRA and Hamas...??

I think she's pretty good on TV and as she's always on is clearly the presentable face of the front bench.

SadEyedPete Sun 14-May-17 17:32:33

Prince Harry is Hewitt born. Debbie Harry is an embarrassment to the Labour Party and I think people like her will cause a higher number of Tory voters unfortunately

TheAntiBoop Sun 14-May-17 17:36:21

She does manage to come across as contemptuous of the electorate (white van man/people choosing to vote because they like May's hair etc etc).

There are a lot of labour politicians I have a lot of time for (my own mp for a start) but they never seem to be the ones I hear in the radio.

HunkyDory69 Sun 14-May-17 17:39:10

@Sadeyedpete Huh?

LovelyBath77 Sun 14-May-17 17:39:11

I just added the link to show the interview, not because of attention. I had heard of her, but not seen her in action before! Ah yes I remember that white van man thing, so that was her was it?

And it is not nasty, it's important, these are MPs..

PetalMettle Sun 14-May-17 17:40:02

Probably @theantiboop as so many are steering clear of this administration. That being said I quite like thornberry. Wvm thing was Cringe but I found her a good local MP - @crunchymum I used to live just off upper street

LovelyBath77 Sun 14-May-17 17:40:09

She made me cringe, and feel sick watching her!

Where do they get them from...

PortiaCastis Sun 14-May-17 17:41:22

There are no MPs at the moment as parliament has been dissolved.
Good on Emily for holding Fallon to account
