BBC link here.

I like some of her comments but despite the fact they mention that she out earns her husband, the headline still seems to place her as being worthy of an opinion because of who she is married too.

What's wrong with "says top lawyer"?

Maybe I am just being pissy.....

Yes, I am rather fond of Miriam. I like the fact that she doesn't waft around looking fragrant and hanging off her husband's every word. No nauseating 'my hero' stuff for her. She's busy, no she's not bloody coming to your little speech. I like that about her.

And yes, since she has a profile she didn't choose, good on her for using it in a positive way instead of waxing lyrical on her favourite pie filling.

'She's busy, no she's not bloody coming to your little speech'

Yes yes, love this about her too!

I always suspect with Miriam GD it's Clegg's PR people who are trying to link her name to his, not the media reducing her to his wife. Because she is infinitely smarter and resonates about 100% better with women in particular than Clegg does... No way of proving that of course, but just a thought.

I agree with what Penguins said.

(Always wanted to say that.)
