Quote of the day

"I must be frank, it is complicated because if you're going to give a legal pardon for things like arson and violence it's not as straightforward as people think it might be."

Well done Amber Rudd for once again proving how anachronistic and out of touch the Tories are by suggesting, on the 100th anniversary of women finally getting the vote, that imprisoned suffragettes shouldn't be pardoned.

As the BBC's Amelia Butterly has reminded us, though, the suffragettes were no strangers to resistance and opposition from other women.
