Harriet Harman and the rodent moment

Equality issues? No, some people can't do jokes!

Harman and another moment of pure comedy Harman and another moment of pure comedy
The Harriet Harman "ginger rodent" remark, what is it? Could this be a joke or an insult? On the other hand is it an example of drollery or defamation? Then again an observation or a slight? You do see the problem don't you? Being who she is, Harriet Halfmoon, would not do things normally, there would be a reason. Most of the time she's not just 'doing things', oh no! She's doing things on behalf of the poor and the dispossessed. That would keep most folk busy but then Hurrypot Harpoon also administers to the vulnerable. And you have no idea how many of that tribe stalk the earth. They seem to multiply like flies. Don't forget this is all straight-forward stuff too. When you factor in the gender related work load, it's mega.

None of the above?

Voter apathy or voter anger?

A load of ballots! A load of ballots!
Not long now, the elections will soon be over. What elections? What indeed! The elections for the EU Parliament, that's what. Have you seen a flag, a poster or anything that may get you out to vote? Many 'serious' UK based political commentators were slow to see the importance of the UK MPs expenses' scandal, very surprising that as it is a once in twenty-years type of event. They were equally slow to see that one of the by-products of this would be a fall in enthusiasm for the eu-elections.

Such is the mood of the public it would be a fool who tried to suggest that these elections are vital to us here in the UK. The public anger over expenses has become, some would say reverted, to anger towards politics in general. The public, the voter, wishes to send a message to the political establishment and abstaining from elections is one way of doing this. So voter turn-out for the Euro Parliament elections could be well down.
