Harriet Harman?!? Another example of the Westminster bubble?

There has been a lot of speculation in the media about whether Harriet Harman is positioning herself to challenge for the Labour leadership when it inevitable becomes available after the next General Election.

However, this is mostly being reported in a serious kremlinology kind of way. Surely the reaction should be one of outright derision? Can't people within the Westminster see how awful she is? Isn't that what the rest of the country sees (or is it just me?)

It's one of way of ensuring Labour don't return to power anytime soon. Maybe the Labour swamp has been drained so much, she is all they can dredge up?

Putting aside her stupid comments about "the court of public opinion" over the weekend, she has always run Thatcher close in terms of being patronising and hectoring and when you see her on panels like Question Time, you can sense the audience bristle when she starts to talk at them.

Or am I being harsh?

I don't think you are being harsh enough.
