Sally is my wife not my chattel, appendage, or add-on!

If she does not wish to attend the funeral, she is at perfect liberty to decline the invitation. She is her own woman, makes her own decisions and they are not related to me in any way, shape or form.

The mere fact that I have to point this out yet again is proof that the media and politics as a whole still has a great deal to improve on when it comes to the way it portrays women.

My thoughts on the recent news.

Thus far the conduct of those in the chamber has been sufficiently respectful, while at the same time expressing their deeply held views on such a divisive premier. The courtesy from those who were the Baroness's biggest critics in the chamber have been a credit to the House, to Parliament in total and the nation in general.

I am sure all our thoughts are with her family and friends in this difficult time.

...Damnit, who spoke to the press?
