Harriet Harman – the face of Labour’s election campaign
And perhaps that would be justice. For the party which promised to be ‘whiter than white’ in government has been more corrupt than any in living memory: it has a darkness at its heart which casts a shadow over the whole nation; its capacity for ‘sleaze’ is boundless; its hypocrisy sans pareil.
And so God has made them mad, for they have decided that Harriet Harman is to be the public face of the 2010 General Election. Gordon Brown has chosen her ‘to shore up Labour's core support’. And so she will host daily televised media briefings and tour television studios in order to ‘strengthen Labour's appeal to women and middle England voters who are turned off by Gordon Brown’.
Cranmer has not laughed so much in a very long time. David Cameron’s 'Year for Change' campaign has no stronger strategic ally than the woman who is loathed by both men and women, Labour and Conservative, black and white, gay and straight, animal, vegetable and mineral.
And most of all by Christians, for it is her ‘equality’ agenda which is eradicating every expression of the faith and every utterance of biblical orthodoxy from the public sphere.
The face of Labour’s 2010 campaign is the most anti-Christian they could have chosen.
A face is important: it can be the reflection of the reality or the illusory facade of the veridical actuality. It is the means by which one’s soul is interpreted: every muscular inflection speaks words of expression, sentences of opinion, paragraphs of judgement and entire essays of feeling.
If the eyes are the window to the soul, the face is the gallery of the character, the magnifying glass of the disposition, the refractor of the id.
Harriet Harman is harsh, sour, cold and brash. She exudes self-righteousness, she seeps self-absorbed bitterness, she whispers supercilious platitudes and patronises with a glance. She is the embodiment of everything which people have come to hate about politicians, and the incarnation of everything they despise about politics.
Harriett Harman is the least likely person to influence anyone to vote Labour because she is the embodiment of all that they stand for. She is a man-hating, family-loathing, marriage-destroying, foetus-murdering, wealth-consuming, union-manipulated, minority-obsessed, harridan feminist and a wailing banshee.
Now that the decision has been taken to broadcast televised debates between the party leaders, why are we being deprived of our equivalent of a vice-presidential debate?
William Hague versus Harriet Harman alone would be worth the entire licence fee.
