Lady Williams

This is an interesting quote from a forthcoming interview with Andrew Lansley in the Spectator about Shirley Williams. (Quoted on the Guardian website):

When asked what he makes of her, the Health Secretary is lost for words. 'She is...' he splutters. 'How can I say, she is... a high maintenance date. We have had lots of meetings,' he continues. 'In a sense, to give her her due, even if I felt we had to devote an enormous amount of time simply to get to the point where we were clear about what it is she wanted, I think that allowed her to realise that we were not dealing with the bill as she imagined it was.' 
Lady Williams is the Lib Dems' great hope for the Health Bill in the Lords. In this respect I agree with Lansley, Lady Williams does not appear to understand the Bill.
