l watched QuestionTime from Leeds Town Hall - and was amazed at the wonderful Yorkshire women who put such straight forward questions to the political leaders. What strong forthright girls they are. One - Catherine Shuttleworth - a self made millionaire
who started her business up from nothing- three months after having her third child - the others under the age of two.
She tore Ed Milliband to shreds - really caught him off his guard. No wonder he tripped leaving the stage.
We need a lot more of these super mums.
Mrs Shuttleworth said ‘she had no regrets at her outburst and as a previously undecided voter now wanted a Conservative Government.’ She said 'l just wanted a straight answer to a straight question from a straight talking Yorkshirewoman and he could’nt manage it. The British Public have not forgotten the mess Labour left us in and l think in the debate he was held to account. They left the note. Thats not the sign of a serious government, is it.
The infamous note being the one left by the then labour treasury minister Liam Byrne saying ‘l am afraid there is no money left’.
Mrs Shuttleworth told Mr Milliband ‘The last 5 yrs have been really tough but the economy is now improving. What worries me is you are about to put Ed[talking]Balls in as Chancellor and he called that note a joke. Why on earth should l trust a Chancellor who thinks that was a joke? lf he worked in the corporate world he would have been fired.’
She gets my vote.
