Harriet Harman’s How To Guide to Twitter

Yet another MP showing their unrivalled grasp of how the Internet works this week. In which Harriet Harman tries to ‘@’ Polly Toynbee in a tweet by typing in her email address, before posting a picture of a newspaper rather than, you know, a link:

Not like she’s the Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport or anything…

    John Bercow says:

    Stupid Harperson!

  13. 13
    Quiet Bat Person says:

    One really has to wonder about Harman’s male constituents. She will show interest hen any problem is perceived to be diadvantageous to women, but is silent when there is no ‘gender andle’ or when men are disadvantaged.

    In so doing, she betrays her male constituents, and also the worthy aspects of feminism, as she reduces it to a mere political football, and pure cynical opportunism.

    Do men actually vote for this sexist woman? Bizzare.

    Perhaps her whole constituency has been reduced to a gaggle of wimps and eunuchs

    Not me, the other one. says:

    Given her expensive and private education, I’m surprised she appears to be so stupid.

    Jesus H Christ – shadow minister for media and cannot put a link to an article

    The only link Harman can do is a clinker down the pan

  19. 19
    Idon'tneednodoctor says:

    Harman even got her husband (Jack Dromey) a female seat, that’s how biased she is towards women.

    PC Dixon says:

    If its Toynbee its bound to be rubbish but she’s in good company – they both spout bullshit

    After the menopause Harriet now enters the meanopause.
    A lack of hormones and the result is her-moans.

    Thank g*d her partner is just an emasculated pr*ck.

  23. 23
    Quiet Bat Person says:

    Not only does this idiot Shadow Minister link to her photo of an article newspaper (unreadable) instead of the online Grauniad article, it is also rotated 90 degrees.

    Harman has no grasp of Media. Or grasp of anything, for that matter, except Jack Dormey’s balls.

    Like most women if it isn’t a cooker or a hoover she can’t work out how to use it.

    John Bellingham says:

    To see how ball-achingly, pig-shit stupid the crop of female politicians actually are, tune in to Sky for their early-morning newspaper review. Not only are the silly tarts at a low-sugar level, they are unguarded.
    Yesterday, fat-slag, disgraced Jackie Smith stated that doctors should be paid more money as it was terrible that “they had to deal with injuries and really sick people every day”.
    Almost-as-fat Harman on Newsnight wittering on about women being excluded from men-only gold clubs with two other women–no men allowed to talk.
    Fatter-still, Abbott–well, what can one say? Massa, she not UMamma Leddie who done know fuck nothing. She UMamma Leddie who done know fuck-all!

    When we get power all technology will be left wing, and the chosen will be allowed to use it……

  73. 73
    Fishy says:

    Battie Harman was on BBC / Labour’s Newsnight last week carrying on about wimmin not being allowed membership at Muirfield – outrageous, the Government should act.

    It was pointed out to her that as she was in Government when the Open was last played at Muirfield, she could have acted then….or she, having delivered the Equality Bill, could have outlawed it in 2009.

    Smiling and blinking somewhat, she explained in the patronising way that only she can, that Labour could not get agreement to do this. The Beeboid failed, though to point out that Labour had an over all majority and could have done anything it wanted.

    When it smiles and blinks and patronises, I’m always left feeling that Harman is telling lies.

  74. 74
    gipsome says:

    Harman must be crazy praising Toynbee’s attempts at journalism.
    Any fool can see that a plastered St@ines or H@rry is streets better than any Pollyfilla coming out of the Gaurdian.

    Lord HaHa says:

    “On 15 March 2006, in the Cash for Peerages scandal, Dromey spoke of not being aware, despite being party treasurer, of £3.5 million loaned to the Labour Party in 2005 by three persons who were subsequently nominated for Life Peerages.” -wikipedia

    There are only two known ways to tell Ed Miliband from a turnip.

    1. Turnips do not admire President Hollande of France. If you see a turnip admiring President Hollande (or, come to think of it, if you see * anything * admiring the French President) it is, in fact, Ed Miliband, and not a turnip.

    2. When you put a turnip in a microwave, it doesn’t start licking the window.

    If you look at history there have always been strong women, but, they had class, even the working class women who took on pub ownership during the latter seventeen and eighteen centuries. They would p**s on Harman and Cooper, and I would also, but as a women who has achieved everything through merit, without using my families background, I look down on them.
