Desperately attention-seeking Harriet has come up with two ploys to get her back in the limelight – she must be in power withdrawal now Corbyn is so firmly ensconced in what might have been her seat (Why didn’t the arch feminist put herself forward for the leadership? Shame on her!)
First up, she cried foul at the apparent sexism she suffered as Labour’s deputy leader under Gordon Brown. As well as being denied the title of Deputy PM, she was made to sit at the end of the Cabinet table and was relegated to a supporting role at a G20 summit, attending a dinner for leaders’ wives. Hardly breaking news, she moaned about this three years ago.
If that wasn’t bad enough, in order to re-establish her feminist credentials (and small-mindedness), she has demanded of the BBC that the next Doctor Who should be a woman and have a male assistant so she could “just tell him what to do, he will need that leadership”.
Knowing the PC Beeb, this may well be her only victory of note…
