There is a thought-provoking piece by David Thomas in yesterday's Indy. I agree with much of what he says, but is it Celia Thomas (of Winchester) or Susan Thomas (of Walliswood) who will admit to being an ordinary suburban housewife?
My mum used to be a relatively normal suburban housewife. Then she discovered the Liberal Party. After years of doughty service, fighting one losing election after another, the party did what the voters never would and sent her off to Parliament as a working life peer.
