But then I’d be pretending, wouldn’t I?

Reader Jicks complains:

In your interview with Tony Abbott you called him ‘Our Lord the Esteemed Leader’ whenever addressing him. It sounds.... well I cringed a little inside each time. He is the leader of the Opposition.... how about ‘Tony’ or ‘Mr Abbott’? I mean, when he’s the PM, sure, you’ll then call him ‘Our Lord the Esteemed Leader’, right? Conservatism is about keeping standards - of civility and respect for Office.

I’m torn on this one.
