    i have never Jumped to my  feet so quickly  cheering & clapping 

    as loudly as i could, But  i also BOOED as loudly as i could  

  when Abbott said what he did i was demanding he apologise to us all.

He was terrified of a handful of us women the next morning 

at the airport trying to run inside as quickly as his legs go.
