New allegations about Suu Kyi have emerged, after an alleged rift with Polly over kettling. While Polly was in favour of putting the kettle on, Suu Kyi is understood to have undermined her efforts, to the point where she took it off again.
News of the diplomatic incident have threatened the fragile peace in Burma.
"If Polly put the kettle on, we'd all have tea," said one observer. "Suu Kyi's reason's for taking it off again have never been explained. They'd better be bloody good."
