Harriet Harman - the kind of girl your father warned you of!

Harriet Harman has some cheek. She is the prim and proper daughter of radical upper class types, who has spent a lifetime cajoling others in the benefits of socialism, but failing to live up to her own words. She has been caught out with dodgy donations; she has, like other New Labour apparatchiks, weasled her way round the education system for her own children whilst espousing "local schools" for others.

Positioning herself as a feminist and Labour party survivor, she has a mean streak which is somewhat unpleasant. So it is not surprising that she accuses the Conservatives of "breathtaking arrogance", saying leader David Cameron was "not quite right". She goes on - "He's the kind of man your mother used to warn you about. He'll promise you the world. But if he ever got his wicked way with you - in the ballot box - you'd never hear from him again."

Well, we heard from her alright. Her party has caused the Treasury pot to become empty, she has been over zealous in her determination to support all the anti-freedom measures of this government, such as ID cards, 42 days detention, surveillance of the individual and a cavalier attitude to international law. The inept handling of sensitive computer material, the lax approach to prison releases, the slapdash way the state of our hospitals is handled, and the general "briefing" in the press rather than confronting Parliament with the facts all add to the mayhem.

The Labour Party has a coterie of sleazy hangers-on, all supping at a table with "New Labour" ideas laid out on it, which the rest of us find unpalatable. All in all, Harriet Harman has brass neck - I'll give her that.

She is the kind of woman no Tory could really feel comfortable with. A whiff of hypocrisy, the scent of duplicity, but above all a cold fish attitude to those she disagrees with.

I'd hazard a guess that most fathers would warn their sons of her "charms"!!
