Some Women are More Equal Than Others

How much would you pay for dinner with Harriet Harman? Well the going rate seems to be about £7,500 for a table or £750 per plate. It’s ok though, because you get a two free bottles of champagne…

The fourth annual Labour Party Women’s Dinner will be hosted in the Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden. Having eaten there, Guido would feel ripped off at £75, and that’s without the dubious company. One seat would cost a worker on minimum wage, doing 40 hour weeks, three weeks’ pay. Who exactly is Harman expecting to fork out for the occasion? Surely not those rich successful women?

          Worse than that – it’s two bottles between ten people. Not two bottles each. What sort of a fucking dinner is that? A Celebration of Eid or something?
