      When someone does that .
      Gives a link and a vague reference to its content .
      It is easy to cut and paste enough content from the link to illustrate the point.
      From past experience there is a extremely high chance the link does not even support their comment
      Which is why it is a waste of time looking any further at such links dont bother just down tick and more on .

        It’s a long article, Griff. Not much point in a cut and paste of a fragment which does nothing to show if my assessment is overall fair.

          It looks like the mixture as before, her bleating about how hard done by the poor baby is, weep, weep.

            What a drama queen. I suspect that most of it’s in her own mind. Why is she in so much danger when other MPs are not ?

            She must have decided that she had been out of the headlines long enough and made contact with the Herald. May God forbid that she should not be in the news. Does she describe her occupation as Professional Victim/Attention Seeker on the Electoral Roll ?

        You could waste even less time by simply posting TL;DR.

        No, it’s not us; it’s her.

        How about actual proof of the abuse claims ?

        We know that many of her claims about herself are lies; why should we believe these ones ?

    Way over priced. $2.50 to continue reading that story.

      I can’t open it, and won’t pay $2.50 to read about the pwecious pouting pwincess.

        Oh dear,
        that’s a bit of a comms 101 fail if you can’t get your message out to the masses….

          I would guess that in this case it’s the mixture as before; poor little victim blah blah blah….why is she so unlucky in this respect ? I no longer believe much of what she says; too many things have been proved to be lies (or in the case of her claim to hold the Defence Portfolio and be the first woman to do so being such an obvious lie that it’s hard to imagine anyone being stupid enough to make it)
