you'll have heard the news now of sue bradford's resignation. i'd also like to acknowledge the great work ms bradford has done in getting progressive legislation through parliament, and in advocating for those who are economically disadvantaged. there is absolutely no doubt that she had plenty of courage, and the ability to work with a number of parties to push through issues she felt strongly about.
parliament will definitely be a worse place without her, and it's a pity that with her leaving, the ratio of women of MPs will be reduced further. i'd like to wish her well in all future endeavours.
