Crash Harman on Radio 5 Live

Listen here on Five Live where Ms Harman (Mrs Dromey) is interviewed by Stephen Nolan, 24th April 2010.

Scroll in to 1 hour 46 minutes to hear her interview - there's too much for Mrs Rigby to discuss, please listen for yourself. Oh, and stay listening to the listeners' phone calls afterwards - including the lady who thought Mr Nolan intimidated Ms Harman. (*chuckle* - as if!)

It's a revealing interview, during which she even has the gall to say that, if something isn't mentioned in another party's manifesto then they're going to scrap/abolish/abandon it. Remember - the Labour Government went to court to prove it did not need to keep manifesto promises, and made the taxpayer pay for the court case.

Mrs R thinks it's also worth remembering that Harriet Harman (Mrs Dromey) is Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and Deputy Prime Minister - and a listener thinks a radio broadcaster is capable of intimidating her, over the phone.

Harriet Harman has also been, according to the Telegraph, a victim of Mr Mandelson's tongue. He is reported to have told her
to "shut up" and [that] he did not want to hear from her again
That'll go down well with her husband, Jack Dromey, and Unite.

Unite, you may remember, bankrolls the Labour Party, in a circular sort of way.

Having listened Mrs. R, I have to say that was one hell of an interview and full marks to Nolan for not letting her off the hook! That is how the numpties should be interviewed and other interviewers should also take a leaf out of Nolan's book!

Quite right, Mrs R - Gordon Brown sent a legal team to Court to argue that 'manifesto pledges are not subject to legitimate expectation'. And, he won.

@ Both - yes, and yes!
