I think it's important that she displayed herself publicly to be in charge. Women often have to work harder to be respected in positions of authority, and I think it would be difficult for her - more difficult than for a male politician - if it seemed like she was being pushed aside by Brown or by other men.

I hope they find the people behind this, that's pretty scary! From a map, it looks like it's not actually that far from Hackney where you live?

Odd, but I have exactly the opposite reaction. I have a deep cynicism about politicians at a moment of crisis. They must live for these moments, when they can step forward and take charge. They can't be in politics to be involved in the day to day running of a department. Brown's gravitas when speaking about important events now seems tinged with a deep delight at finally being the man at the top.
