GUY NEWS: When Harman Said Gordon Wasn’t Sexist

Pressed by Iain Dale last night, Harriet Harman was adamant that she stuck by her accusations of sexism levelled against Gordon Brown:

“I think it is unlikely that if one of the men had won [the Labour deputy leadership] instead of me, that they would not have been made Deputy Prime Minister.”

That’s not what she used to say. When Caroline Flint resigned in 2009, accusing the former Prime Mentalist of treating her like “female window-dressing”, Hattie insisted that allegations of sexism against Gordon were unfounded:

“I can understand the frustration of any woman in politics but it’s not true to say that Gordon Brown doesn’t take women in politics seriously.”

So, was she telling the truth then, or now?

    The government of family values says:

    Rather ironic that Maggie said during one conference speech that “Some young people believe they have an inalienable right to be gay” whilst her government was actively protecting ministers, MPs and peers who were buggering and killing little boys. They clearly had the inalienable right to be p*edophiles.

    Not that I’m suggesting she personally knew what was going on. Tim Fortescue knew, the Home Office knew, the CPS knew, Geoffrey Dickens knew, the DPP knew, the Met Police knew, but the Prime Minister absolutely did not know.

    And yes, Labour have their own nonces whom they’re protecting too. Ditto the Lib Dems. It’s all one grubby cesspit. It’s just rather ironic that the ones who’ve spent decades campaigning on a platform of family values and promoting hatred of gays have themselves had a predilection for torturing and r*ping boys.

    Now let’s get back to calling for consenting adult gays to be lynched. They believe they have an inalienable right to exist, when everyone knows that rich middle aged and elderly men buggering care home boys is the only acceptable thing.

          Most of these people work in difficult circumstances – they are social workers dealing with abusers, druggies, the mentally ill, violent offenders and the like or teachers working in highly stressful jobs that very few people can cope with or they do the dirty work of refuse collection, road mending, mortuary attendance and sewage work or they wipe the a*ses of the elderly in care homes or they…well you get the point.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
