The language and logic of such issues is not obvious. It is fair game to take the mickey out of professional politicians, but I doubt it is fair to do similar as regards the general public.

It headlines "with all due respect..." a curious phrase, since it would seem that the respect that is due is fairly negligible.

Indeed, but when it is that obvious then the insult is thinly veiled: not a polite way to be starting... although it pretends to be.
I suppose on the track record, the veil may well be thick enough.
