Her words "So I ask for your understanding when I say that I now owe it to my children and family to put them first. If I do not, then I know that this is something I will come to regret deeply." What confuses me is this..... Her children are aged between 5 & 11. OK so what you might think.. Well, in the past eleven years Mrs Kelly has devoted most of her time to the 'party' and not as much to her children when they were at such an age that would have been important for the mother/sibling bonding period. It seems strange to me that now all the kids are at a school age, that she wishes to dedicate more time to them, when in theory she should have more time available to follow her political will. ? Perhaps politics was more attractive than changing nappies and putting up with screaming kids at the time. Priorities assabbout face or a lame excuse ( Both?) I hope this makes sense folks.....Views?
