Harriet Harman: you can’t trust men in power

Isabel Oakeshott, Deputy Political Editor

HARRIET HARMAN has demanded that one of Labour’s two top posts should always be held by a woman — because she believes men cannot be trusted to run organisations on their own.

Labour’s deputy leader secretly tried to change party rules two years ago to ensure that it could never again be led by an all-male team, but she was foiled.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Harman reiterates her belief in the principle and says her role as Gordon Brown’s second-in-command has changed for ever the way the party will be run.

“I don’t agree with all-male leaderships,” she said. “Men cannot be left to run things on their own. I think it’s a thoroughly bad thing to have a men-only leadership.”

Harman tried to change the party’s rules shortly after winning the deputy leadership contest. An insider who was involved said it was rejected out of hand by the party hierarchy.

Harman said it was put on the backburner because Labour was busy “getting on with the job” of running the country. She insisted she had been right to press for the change.

Hey Harriet, socialism does not work no matter whether a woman or a man runs it.

It’s refreshing to to hear a leftie proudly spouting her idiocy.

Over here, the lefties pretend to be the re-incarnation of Reagan, at least until they are elected.

I don’t agree with all-male leaderships, IF BY THAT IS MEANT BEING MALE IS AN ABSOLUTE PRECURSOR TO BEING A LEADER. But of course it isn’t in the UK (or the US). Anyone can stand for public office. If women don’t get in, that’s down to either their inadequacies as individuals, or the prejudices of the electors. Neither is the fault of the political system as it stands.
