In response to Paul T Horgan: What does equality mean to the would-be Ms Speaker?

Aside from any dreadful mistake in appointing Harman, please do not forget the outgoing Speaker. He should not, under any circumstances be awarded a gong, a knighthood or a seat in the House of Lords.

There is a future career for him, connected to his love of the EU. On the continent he is seen as a great comedy act. His future lies in the European entertainment industry.

On the 2010 Equalities Act, from the Guardian in 2009: Polly Toynbee wrote that the bill, which was drafted under the guidance of Harriet Harman, was ‘Labour’s biggest idea for 11 years. A public-sector duty to close the gap between rich and poor will tackle the class divide in a way that no other policy has . . . This new duty to narrow the gap would permeate every aspect of government policy. Its possible ramifications are mind-bogglingly immense.’ One cabinet member described it as ‘socialism in one clause’.
Harman has a lot to answer for.

The squeaker being replaced by Harman is rather like replacing Ed Miliband with Commissar CorbLenin.
