UPDATED: SEE COMMENTSalso see The Telegraph for a great article by Mary Riddell
my calendar tells me it's 2010. all evidence suggests someone is playing a trick on me...
following on from this morning's rant, Shirley brought this delightful piece of media to my attention:
from the BBC's coverage of Cameron's newly elected cabinet regarding the new Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equality, Theresa May (the only female cabinet member and only the second woman to ever hold the Home Sec position)
A passionate moderniser with an exotic taste in shoes, she famously ruffled feathers when she told Tory activists they were seen as members of the "nasty party".
and yes, the bold is my own.
I know what you're thinking... probably something like my reaction at first glance,
'Oh, this must have be some light-hearted get-to-know-them piece full of little personal and inconsequential anecdotes.'
Alas you, like me, would be wrong.
