Oh dear, that nice little old lady who took against Andrew Lansley is no stranger to protest stunts. June Hautot, a former Unison rep, told the Workers Revolutionary Party magazine last month:
‘I’m all for occupations. That’s our only ammunition to stop closures’.
She also once attempted to sue Wandsworth Council over plans to develop Battersea Power Station, but her looney-left activism doesn’t stop there. According to the Glasgow Herald in 1997 she “shared a cell with Mrs Scargill” after she was arrested with Arthur’s wife protesting open cast mines. It was inevitable this seasoned activist was going to have her moment.
Why on earth didn’t Lansley go round the back or through the Cabinet Office?
UPDATE: Even Labour are distancing themselves. Sources get in touch to say that say Hautot is a trot. In 2002 she stood as a “Save our Services” candidate in Wandsworth’s Southfields in a bid to try to defeat the Tory cabinet member for care services, Jan Leigh. Of course Leigh easily won and all Hautot did was collapse Labour’s vote.
