Harriet Harman (now there’s a woman who knows how to frighten the horses) will be introducing her equalities bill next month. Word is that she has asked her officials to ensure that there are some disabled people in the Commons gallery when the bill is launched, adding: “And it would help if some of them were black.”
That is a perfect example of the kind of poison so often dripped by Damian McBride. Detailed, probably true and obtained by one of his press officer snouts to damage Harman. Expect a lot more of that sort of thing if she keeps make leadership signals.
