She admitted that after the pay-per-view smut scandal had broken, her son had said: "Dad, haven't you heard of the internet?" Smith was also shocked by a visit to the Erotica exhibition, where confronted by the likes of the Monkey Spanker and artisan-built bondage furniture, "I felt completely innocent."


I believe the word you actually meant to use in place of "innocent", Smith, was "stupid".

Everyone's favourite ex-Home Secretary is in the news again this week.
Apparently, she's admitted being wrong about cannabis when she was in office. Now, if only she'll admit to being wrong about everything else....

That basically means she knew she was wrong in office, but didn't have the balls to say it. Yet another politician who says "well, unfortunately I can do nothing about it... now".

Well, this thread has aged well.
Unintentionally, you might say.

I’m struggling to get over this line in that article. Is this supposed to be a defence, or explanation of sorts? Bullying people but not understanding (caring) how awfully your actions affect other humans is not something that should be given by way of trying to excuse it. Yikes.

By accounts, she isn't the brightest, and she is an absolutely terrible human being to boot.

My views on this are somewhat coloured by the fact I can't stand her.

I would say let’s explore why you don’t like either Patel or Abbott despite them being polar opposites politically but I actually don’t have time today

Yes, she is very fanciable, even more so than Kier Starmer.

I honestly don't know enough about her as a politician to decide how evil she is or otherwise. Did she do bad, Mali?

Wasn't the govt argument that it was "unintentional" bullying? Which seems a brilliant artifice to me.

"Not self-aware enough to know she was being an arsehole" is how I translate that.

And don't forget, she wants to come down hard on counter-terrorist offenders.

That’s a perfect description of my last manager. He was a vile unpleasant bully, but had zero ability to recognise that, and I’m told was quite hurt when he it explained that people didn’t like him.
