What percentage of legislation had bipartisan support when the last government were in office?
You can respond to people about their perceived incompetency without the need to include gender in your arguments- well, some people can - Abbott and a lot of men in both politics and the media obviously can't.
How you can try and pretend that Abbott is not a Misogynist after all of the things he has said over the years is beyond me. I know you like him, but at least try and be honest about him.
Er - for someone who prides himself on always being right and knowing so much, you are missing the mark a bit in this thread. Of course Margaret Thatcher got similar treatment - ALL women in positions of power do...always - here are some;
She was asked - "Did I realise how much being an MP would keep me away from home?" Thatcher wrote in her autobiography, recalling some of the questions she faced. "Could I fulfil my duties as a mother and an MP?" - M. Thatcher
"Do you dress as a leader, as a woman, for yourself or for your husband?" —Barry St John Nevill, reporter with the Hornsey Journal.
"My God! The ***** has won!" —the vice-chairman of the Conservative Party, upon Thatcher becoming the party's leader.
"Ditch the *****." —A popular Labour party slogan.
"Shrill and hectoring." —Peter Mandelson, the Labour Party's Communications
Director, on Thatcher's "first ever televised performance in the Commons."
"In her presence, you pretty quickly forget that she's a woman. She doesn't strike me as a very female type." —Zbigniew Brzezinski.
"The Iron Man." —Yasser Arafat's nickname for Thatcher.
"Attila the Hen." —Nickname for Thatcher by member of Parliament Clement Freud.
"It's been a touching spectacle: the brave little woman getting on with the woman's work of trying to dominate the world." —Austin Mitchell, member of Parliament
"She has the eyes of Caligula but the mouth of Marilyn Monroe." —French president Francois Mitterand.
"What does she want, this housewife? My balls on a tray?" —French president Jacques Chirac.
Also, you are someone trying to infer that she didn't get that kind of treatment because she was not incompetent (all though she clearly did get that treatment). Have you ever actually spoken to anyone from the UK/Ireland - like ever? Done any reading? Seen the lasting (ludicrously bad) legacy that she has left behind? Been to the UK?
