Harriet Harman And Alastair Campbell’s Labour Party Working Son Calum Star In Equality Masterclass

by | 21st, August 2011

HARRIET Harman, Deputy leader of Labour Party, and champion of equality (for everyone else) is now on the same team as Calum Campbell. Young Calum is, reportedly, the 22-year-old member of the Labour Party’s fundraising team. His dad is called Alsitair Campbell. You may recall Harman upbraiding Nick Clegg – whose got a job in baking partly though his dad’s connections – for nepotism and how all the best jobs go to sons and daughters of the elite:

I am afraid that the Deputy Prime Minister gave up the right to pontificate on social mobility… When I heard that he was going to launch a commission on social mobility, I thought that it was April Fools day. In just 10 months this Tory-led Government have launched an assault on opportunities for young people, especially the poorest….

For many young people, mobility now means a bus down to the jobcentre…

Next he will be foxtrotting down to the Tory party’s fundraising ball, auctioning City internships for the children of the highest bidder. Is that not the Government’s idea of social mobility? We have further to go, but they are turning the clock back… He may be a man on a mission, but with him at the helm, it is mission impossible.

What else? The Telegraph tells us:

Harry Dromey, her eldest child, is understood to have got a job at the Smart Company, a public relations consultancy, for a year after graduation. The organisation was founded by Deborah Mattinson who co-wrote a book with Miss Harman entitled Winning for Women and is close to Gordon Brown.

You want equality? You can have it – but the birth blockers might have already taken the more fun and interesting jobs…
