Mrs Danczuk: Harman “Categorically” Did Say Those Words

Harriet Harman is embroiled in another row this afternoon after councillor Karen Danczuk accused her of telling porkies. Yesterday Mrs D tweeted:

Only for Harman to hit back strongly today:

“I deny I ever said that and it’s inconceivable I would have ever said that. I’ve always believed it’s what you do in politics, not what you look like. I have never discouraged a woman from getting involved in politics on the basis of their looks.”

But Karen insists to Guido that it did happen, at a party at Labour conference in Manchester a few years ago:

“I can categorically confirm that is exactly what was said to me by Harriet. I actually took it as a compliment and still do. I never thought bad of Harriet saying that to me. However I am now sad to hear that she is denying it when it is the truth. Maybe she had forgotten that she had said that to me. I stand by what I said. It’s the truth. I have no reason to lie.”

Well someone’s not telling the truth…
