It's funny that Georgina should mention the Suffragette movement -- I've long believed that if Blair had been Prime Minister back in Edwardian times, women today wouldn't have the vote. Blair would have called the Suffragettes "terrorists who threaten our civilization" -- remember the 'suicide bomber' Emily Davidson? -- and forced through legislation to have them all imprisoned.
Did some of the Suffragettes' actions break the laws of the time? Absolutely, and the same is true for black civil rights protestors in 60s America. Were they right to do so? Abso-bloody-lutely!Oliver Coombes, 12 years ago.
