Glad my comments sparked a debate
Dear Sir, — I was pleased to see that my description of Fiona Bruce as an “obedient little Tory robot” sparked some public debate.
It also sparked some criticism, which I’ll take on the chin. I do apologise to Mrs Bruce for the personal insult.
However, the point I was trying to make was that I am critical not of her as a person but of her performance in her role as our representative in Parliament.
I have met and chatted with Mrs Bruce and I know her to be a very bright and principled person. That is partly why I was so incensed when she broke her word to me in one of those meetings and flipped from being against Mrs May’s deal to being for it.
