    has Catherine Delahunty taken a vow not to smile if at all possible?

    the carbon footprint involved in smiling is comparable to the carbon output of a common garden snail in a year… so to answer your question… yes.

    Only 10 years in the Beehive and the most ardent Leftie ends up looking like Margaret Thatcher. Go figure.

    I will miss her principled stance and unwavering committment, I hope she enters the supercity fiasco as wodney and his gofer Mark Ford attempt to sell out essential services to their mates.
    What a formidable opponent she would be, sadly though the die may have been well cast on that issue.

    Sue was a brilliant parliamentarian – what a loss.

    But her hair?? What happened? She looks amazing!

    Thank god.

    I supported the S59 repeal and voted yes in the referendum, but I’ll be one of those people who remembers he time in parliament for ending youth rates. Thanks for all you did in that movement Sue.
    (and it was a movement- the bill never would have passed without the work on the ground by Unite members and others)
