The Red Princes: Third Dromey Trying to Get on the Gravy Train

Chasing Guido’s scoops on Euan Blair and Will Straw seeking office, Andy McSmith over at the Indy has thrown another name in the Nepotistic Labour legacy mix:

“Joe Dromey, younger son of Harriet Harman and Jack Dromey, is devoting a lot of time to work in the safe Labour seat of Lewisham Deptford, where the sitting MP, Joan Ruddock, will be 71 come the election.”


Mummy, Daddy and baby piggy all with their snouts in a Labour rotten-borough trough.

Fun fact about Jack Dromey – he cheats in pub quizzes.

Read in to that what you will…

    “he cheats in pub quizzes.”

    Maybe he should have done Letterman instead then.

    My favourite story of the week says:

    An angry media agency employee’s resignation speech emailed to all his co-workers has gone viral. The London man bashed his boss and informed the staff that the company manager supposedly had sex with a female worker in the office. Once the resignation email was posted on Twitter, it became an internet sensation.

        lojolondon says:

        Well, he comes across decent enough – but how can you forget being paid £30k?? From a UNION?? Surely these people have personal assistants who manage their affairs and could easily do the reporting for them? Bearing in mind even if he hires an accountant to do the reporting, he will put it on his ‘expenses’ and we will pay for it?

    Nepotism seems to be alive and well in the “Do as we say , not as we do” Labour Party. Rotten to the core!

      Will Straw is not able to stand as he has a criminal conviction for cocaine dealing whilst at University, where he was also a drug dealer.

    Peter says:

    Perhaps Dromey Junior will be able to come up with better ideas than just suggesting the expansion of Tory policies like his father on NewBuy:–shapps-pickles-dromey-and-the-bathtub-thinking-party


  9. 15
    Dromey is a fucking c-unt says:

    I actually can’t put into words how utterly loathsome and despicable the Dromeys are. One bad apple in a family is normal but for all three of them to be rotten is truly astonishing. Harman crashed into a car and yelled “You know where you can find me” before speeding off. Dromey came top in an all-women shortlist and is a union stooge. And their gruesome son is a snot nosed cheat. What a bunch of fucking C-U-N-T-S

        Total shits like their parents, if you wanted any further evidence of the total failure of our political elite to be able to renew itself other than from its own gene bank this is it. That Labour has become this vehicle for middle class nepotism is sweet irony in the extreme. Utter, utter c_unts.

          Well, I suppose it proves the maxim ‘rubbish in,rubbish out’

          How did they manage offspring? – Joe was selected from an all women shortlist.

      I would have you know my children are all quite capable of leading the Labour party. My 9 year old is already better at maths than I am. Just the other day he asked me, “Daddy, why the fuck did you sell our gold reserves for such a shit price?” Kids!

        Deep Froat says:

        Yes Gordon but how do you tell your (non biological) 9 year old son that Daddies a snot gobbler?

        PS Kudos…you can count up to 9…thats a big number for you.

    Glyn H says:

    Perhaps Josephine would go down better. If Jowell can fake a separation surely a Harman-Dromey can fake a sex change?

    The problem is a belief in kill the hand that feeds ypu Socialist values, especially at the advanced age of the ghastly parents.

    So Labour does not have equality policies, just a closed shop for the elite of the left.

      Rotten to the core says:

      Everyone on here is being really harsh about Joe: people who know him say that he’s a pretty straight kind of guy.

      When you read his experience on his employer’s website:

      “Joe joined the IPA in 2012 and he leads on IPA’s policy and research work.
      He previously worked as a Senior Policy Officer at the London Borough of Newham, focusing on employment and economic development. He has also worked as an employment advisor for a welfare to work provider and as a researcher for a Member of Parliament.

      At the IPA, Joe’s work includes planning, managing and delivering the IPA’s research projects, focused on employee engagement and social partnership. These are carried out with a variety of clients from trade unions, and public sector organisations to private companies and other charities.

      Joe’s work also includes editing the IPA e-bulletin and maintaining the website and social media presence. His role includes providing research support for the IPA’s consultancy work and delivering the IPA’s policy responses.

      Joe holds a BA in Politics and History from the University of Warwick and an MA in Modern History from UCL.”

      you can see why he’ll make a great MP one day (soon).

        Glyn H says:

        be better if the little tyke had learned to make some IPA, worked his way up then started his own business, flourished, sold up so as to be financially independant and then considered public service.

        As it is never seemingly earned a penny other than from the public teat.

      Axel says:

      You mean like the Ancient Greeks? The early Greek city states had political elite that was at the top because it could do the job. It lead military and fought in the wars to defend the city state, it planned the civil engineering, it managed public finance and it ensured public justice. It all went wrong of course, but I’d like to see any of these Labour spawn lead a platoon in Afghanistan. It’s a serious issue, these young men aspire to leading our country yet what have they done to deserve such an opportunity? Some soft sinecure arranged on the back of their family connections is all we can see. Real risk, real sacrifice in the line of duty to defend the values of our country seem to be lacking. An utter mockery of the concepts of duty, honour and sacrifice.

    Well having read some of jackstraw’s depressing biography where he outlines what a foul job politics is , all lying and backstabbing even from your own side, I can’t understand why they want their children to take it up.

    You think they’d want them to have a better happier future than that.

        He’s just going home for his tea now.

        He’ll come back to take the credit for someone else’s work later.

    PPE from Oxbridge does not count as much as experience.

    The trouble with our politics is too many professional politicians! All you need is PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree) from Cambridge or Oxford and you can count on a safe parliamentary seat. If these spoilt kids want to be politicians first get a proper job and get some experience of life and then ask for our vote…

    A Joke says:

    The keepers at London Zoo were perplexed as to how they could get one of the female gorillas in the mood for mating as she was showing absolutely no interest in her male companion.
    So, they decided it might be an idea for one of them to engage in foreplay with the beast with a view to having full sexual intercourse with her once she got going as a prelude to her mating with her partner.
    They decided to ask one of their colleagues, lets call him Jimmy, if he would do the deed for £500.
    Ok I’ll do it said Jimmy but only on three conditions.
    Firstly I don’t need to kiss her,
    secondly absolutely no one gets to hear about it
    And thirdly give me a few days to come up with he £500.
