In response to Kathy Gyngell: Why I’d take Harriet Harman over Nicky Morgan any day, Jenny L wrote:
“They care not that the normal two year old cries piteously on being parted from his mother to stranger care….” I agree with you completely on this point.
However, in my opinion, Harriet Harman is one of the worst anti-family politicians to ever hold office. She has spent most of her political life stirring up hostility towards men.
Don’t forget, in 1990 with Patricia Hewitt she produced a social policy paper called “The Family Way”, which said: “It cannot be assumed that men are bound to to be an asset to family life, or that the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social harmony or cohesion.” This was a staggering and cruel attack on men, and I think it was the foundation stone for the anti-male legislation and propaganda that followed.
