Hypothetical Question

If you looked like this, would you call an opponent a "ginger rodent"?

No, I wouldn't either. Harriet would, though.

Harriet, the former equalities minister.  Harriet, who wanted to criminalise people who discriminated on any basis, such as, err, being ginger for example.

Hypocrites.  Utter hypocrites.


  1. Just goes to show the utter absorption of most politicians. You'd think they'd look in a mirror at least once or twice, wouldn't you?

  2. Too frightened as to what it might say to them.

    "Mirror Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all..."

  3. It takes one to know one. I think it's called projection, self hatred and all that?

  4. She can be prosecuted under her own barmy law.

    From the Mail.
    Harman's Equalities Bill “creates the controversial legal concept of ‘third party harassment’, under which workers will be able to sue over jokes and banter they find offensive – even if the comments are aimed at someone else and they weren’t there at the time the comments were made.”

    Well..she works for us. We employ her. She made a joke that we didn't hear and are not about any of us, but if we feel offended we can demand action to restore our hurt feelings and defend our human right to seek compensation for not hearing comments about someone else which, someone else may find offensive...I think.

  5. That would be *so* satisfying. Make that the one and only prosecution before repealing her law.
