Über Mensch?
September 2012


You've got to hand it to her. It's a male-dominated domain and yet she held her own. Parliamentary committees, everything!

Not to mention Newsnight, Lucy. She can even give Mr Paxman a run for his money! 

I have nothing but admiration. I think she's terrific. She's a role model for all our girls.

Absolutely! All that juggling! We don't have nearly enough girls in Parliament.

Let alone mums.

She's a brave lady. Not one to be pushed about. An absolute star.

Headed for high office, too, according to Cameron. He thought the world of her. 

But it was not to be!

And it's a crying shame. We need MORE mums in Parliament, not fewer. If we had more mums, everything would be different, I guarantee.

We'd be living in a softer, kinder world.

No more . . . wars . . . And fatty deep-fried school lunches . . .

Nutritious school lunches wouldn't be left in the hands of lovely-jubbly celebrity chefs, they'd actually be compulsory! Part of the     national curriculum. 

Even Mrs Thatcher did something about making the kids drink milk, didn't she?

Did she? I thought she took the milk away from them? 

No, Lucy. She's a mum, isn't she? Of course she wants the kids to drink milk.

I should think he fancies her. 


Paxman. I should think he fancies Louise Mensch.

Well, yes. Its very much part of her glamourpuss shtick, isn't it? Mum, MP, best-selling author, rock star husband . . . She's a beautiful woman.

. . . With a little help from Dr Scalpel and Surgeon Botox, I shouldn't wonder!

She denies it, of course.

Of course she does. 

. . . It must have been a painful decision for her.

Oh I bet it was.

Giving up such a promising career . . .

For an ambitious woman. Which she obviously is.

Oh she's very ambitious. You can see that right away. 

All the interviews on telly, all the rushing around, rushing to see the rock star husband in New York . . .  And then back to Westminster, hobnobbing with the Murdochs. 

Fêted wherever she goes . . .
