So Jeremy Corbyn now leads the Labour party. He’s committed to handing 50% of shadow cabinet positions to women, a move which has proved very successful in France and Scotland – if you measure success in terms of 50% of cabinet ministers being women, anyway. Given that some of the more experienced female Labour MPs have already told him to take a running jump, it should be entertaining to see who will remain. We can be sure there’ll be plenty of hatchet-faced women in the shadow cabinet, maybe including the Eagle sisters. Joy.
Harriet Harman is more likely to cook a full English breakfast for her resident patriarch, Jack Dromey MP, than Jeremy Corbyn ever become prime minister, or so political commentators seem to be implying. If they’re wrong, a taste of what’s in store for men and boys can be deduced from Corbyn’s radical feminist campaigning document, Working With Women. My hunch is that it was written by Special Snowflake, in association with the ladies at the Fawcett Society.
