Brits first, sadly. At least that gets them out of the way. The following three politicians were instrumental in the cynical, wanton destruction of my country which occured on their watch from 1997 to 2010:

Estelle Morris (Birmingham Yardley) - When Labour came to power in 1997, Ms Morris had been an MP for five years and was appointed as an under secretary to the Department for Education and Employment. She became the first secretary of state for the new Department for Education and Skills after the 2001 election.

After a backbench stint, she returned as a junior arts minister in 2003 but finally stood down as an MP at the 2005 election. She was made a life peer in 2005 and is pro-vice chancellor of Sunderland University.

In Europe, we only seem to respect female politicians if they look like Andrea Dworkin's ugly sister, even if they then prove themselves to be as inept as the trio I featured at the beginning of this post. So let's hear it for Chile. One, two, three...
