One in the Eye for the Sisterhood

Nettle-sucker Helen Goodman has strayed from the Labour line on the reshuffle. She really hates Tories…

UPDATE: It’s gone.

A Labour Party spokesperson said:

“The Labour Party’s view is that David Cameron’s promises on increasing the representation of women are a sham. He said a third of all his ministers would be women. Fewer than one-in-four are. It is David Cameron who has failed.”

That doesn’t really add weight to Goodman’s apology.

UPDATE II:

    I forecast that some of the new ministers will prove successful, some unsuccessful and some about average. There will be no correlation between their sex and their level of success, nor will it matter whether their appearance could set pulses racing or stop a clock.

    I live in her area, she’s a complete waste of space. Opened a fete at Ingleton and talked about a completely different Ingleton and when her mistake was pointed out to her she had the cheek to blame a young intern (unpaid intern). She isn’t interested in her constituents they are just a stepping stone in her ambition.

    Helen Goodman: A Life.

    On leaving Oxford she worked as a researcher for the Labour MP Phillip Whitehead. She worked in HM Treasury as a fast stream administrator holding many posts including on the Energy Desk, the Exchange Rate Desk, Central Budget Unit, Overseas Finance and finally she was the head of strategy. In 1990-1 she was seconded to the Office of the Czechoslovak Prime Minister to advise on their economic transition after the Velvet Revolution.

    From 1997 she was the director of the Commission on the Future for Multi Ethnic Britain (sponsored by the Runnymede Trust). She was appointed the Head of Strategy at The Children’s Society in 1998, where she was involved in lobbying on policies to cut child poverty. From 2002 until her election she was the chief executive of the National Association of Toy and Leisure Libraries which supported 1,000 projects across Britain. She is a member of the GMB Union and the Christian Socialist Movement, Amnesty International and Friends of the Earth.

    In other words a leftie gobshite who has never held down a proper job in her life.
