“I’m Harriet Harman, you know where you can get me.”
Those are the words of Labour’s deputy leader, Harriet Harman.
They were not the reassuring words of an MP to a worried constituent but, instead, are alleged to have been made to a witness, who saw a parked car hit by Ms Harman’s vehicle, while she was apparently driving and using her mobile phone.
Ms. Harman denies the allegation and that she left the scene of the accident without supplying details of her registration or insurance.
The accident is said to have occurred in Dulwich, South London, on 3rd July and the police are waiting to question Ms. Harman. The reason for their delay is said to be because officers wanted to wait until after Labour’s party conference last week. By anyone’s calculations, that seems to be a long time to delay such an enquiry and we can only wonder why.
Ms. Harman is of course best known for officially promoting the case for women’s equality.
It seems, though, that she sees herself, as being far more equal than anyone else.
I await with interest, the result of the police investigation!
