UPDATE2:- Dear old Legiron. Much better writer than I.
UPDATE1:- Here were our previous thoughts about Sir Fred and the fragrant Harriet.
This part of the thread from here, on ARRSE, is instructive:-
If she does listen to it she might not only find herself out of a job sharpish but she and her mates losing their gold plated pensions and expense packages aswell
Funny how public opinion now suits as stated by Old Snowy plenty of other things are desired by the public but we won’t get
They fought tooth and nail to stop the public finding out about their pensions etc and such othert things as Iraq and WMD’s
I saw a report that stated he had paid into the pension for 30 years starting with bank of Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank so who is she to take it away from him?
The Goverment wil rake in tax from it and also he wil have paid plenty of tax over the years as well
But whilst they kick off about this it stops what a p1ss poor job they are doing off the front page

“… but it’s not enforceable in the court of public opinion and that’s where the Government steps in.”
Notwithstanding that this shows the most staggering ignorance of how the country should be governed, isn’t it amazing that she’s suddenly so interested in public opinion, to the point of proposing a shameful piece of opportunistic legislation when it might earn the gobment a few cheap points — but somehow forgot the importance of public opinion when sending the nation into an illegal war?
For the last few years, especially since Bush was elected for the second time in the US, I’ve had an increasing sense that watching UK and US politicians is like looking through a distorting mirror. It seems more and more like watching children playing at being politicians. They open their mouths and the most unbelievable, ill-considered, illogical sh1t just pours out.
Yeah, I’m pi55ed off with Goodwin and the other greedy swine, but the government is at root responsible for this, by inadequate regulation, by mindless boosterism of unsustainable economic growth and by its pathetic and ill-thought-out response to the crisis. Goodwin is a symptom more than a cause.
And where the hell does Mandelson, of all people (“intensely relaxed about people getting filthy rich”, remember?) get off by giving righteous lectures?
They are barmy to be such spineless, clueless hypocrites, and barmier still to think we haven’t noticed.
What are we going to do about these ba5tards? How do the adults reclaim the reins of power?

There are not enough adjectives in the English language to describe how loathsome she is. Proof once again that this gubment think they are above the law and will do anything and say anything as long as it scores popular point with the voters.
When the history books are writen in a few years time, people will wonder how we managed to vote these jokers in threetimes!
