Quote of the Day

Patricia Hewitt’s sorrow…

“NCCL in the 1970s, along with many others, was naive and wrong to accept PIE’s claim to be a ‘campaigning and counselling organisation’ that ‘does not promote unlawful acts’. As general secretary then, I take responsibility for the mistakes we made. I got it wrong on PIE and I apologise for having done so. I should have urged the executive committee to take stronger measures to protect NCCL’s integrity from the activities of PIE members and sympathisers and I deeply regret not having done so. In particular, Tom O’Carroll should never have been allowed to join the gay rights sub-committee. The proposal to reduce the age of consent was not mine – it was the policy of the organisation and its executive committee at that time. I do not support reducing the age of consent or legalising incest.”

    I have to say: fair enough. That’s a pretty reasonable statement. If Harman and Dromey had done this on day 1 I think this would have died down.

      But they *didn’t* do that because they’re fucking THICK.

      This is Hattie’s problem.

        Absolutely right. She has to be one of the most stupid on the Labour ranks despite that education. Bit like that Diana really.

    Mr and Mrs Harman will now attempt to hide behind Ms. Hewitt’s mea culpa, metaphorically washing their blood-stained hands in her bowl of tears. The evidence emerging suggests that the pair of them were far more active in support of PIE than they are prepared to admit. Order more popcorn.

      We must keep up with this story ,enjoy it , gloat , rub their noses in it at every opportunity,above all never let them off the hook.
      The only regret is I think it should have been put on ice until closer to the election next year .

    Stupid naive little twits then and the same is still going on today in lots of different spheres. PIE were cleverer than these awful ignorant Uni. berks.
    Plus ça change.

    So Pattie was in charge but somehow not in charge. And Hattie regrets but isn’t sorry. And Ed is taming the unions but they are more powerful. And yet this f***ing country still looks like voting these shitwits back in. Words fail me. We are so lucky

    its absolutely amazing how Harman and Dromey can be so fucking idiotic, did they honestly believe the mail and others wouldn’t keep digging for more damning evidence

    Lke you said the bankers ARE scum says:

    Shutting the table door AFTER the horse has bolted means your too late dear. You knew then as you know now what sort of organisation PIE was & should have acted then Incidentally can you tell us who proposed them as members? Was it one of your pervy mates perhaps?

    I’ll bet Ms Halfman and her ilk ensured that their children were protected against any adult sexual abuse. It’s only the plebs whose families are to be destroyed, as part of their pact with the Fabian/ Frankfurt School marxists .

    The fine line between Gay & Pedo seems to be lost on most people

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
