Sitting on the opposition front bench, the lady in question looked suitably modest as the PM, in typically sycophantic mode, heaped more of the same praise upon this doyen of equality, humanity and saintliness.
Underneath the bob haircut Harman smiled her approval. For here is a woman who, with such initiatives as her female-only prospective parliamentary short-lists (and pink buses), has truly struck a blow for the sisterhood.
Remember them? Female-only short-lists? Harman pursued this utterly bonkers initiative with trademark zeal. Soon, Labour short-lists duly became female only. With just one exception: The constituency of Erdington. By sheer coincidence Erdington just happened to be the constituency where Harman's husband, union official, Jack Dromey was hoping to be selected as the member of parliament. Dromey was duly elected to parliament.
The fact that all female short-lists were hugely discriminatory passed this bleeding heart lawyer-turned-MP by as did her own cynical hypocrisy.
As is the case with all bleeding hearts, dig beneath the surface and you will find a mass of contradiction, ineptitude and personal agenda. Harman is no exception. Given this woman's nauseatingly, always high-profile self-righteousness, it's little wonder that this week's Linkedin storm bore all the hallmarks of a Harmanesque fiasco.
When human rights' barrister and fellow bob-haired militant feminist, Charlotte Proudman 'exposed' a blatant piece of male sexism on social networking site Linkedin this week, Ms Harman must have felt immense pride. For here was one of her own; a befuddled, radicalised militant feminist spouting forth the usual 'objectifcation' of women claptrap.
Putting aside Proudman's obvious thirst for publicity in 'exposing' what she simple-mindedly labelled the 'misogyny' of senior QC Alexander Carter-Silk, what really stands out from this affair is the breathtaking hypocrisy of Proudman. It's hypocrisy that even Harman herself would be proud of.
Replying to Carter-Silk's message on Linkedin in which he had remarked that her profile picture was 'stunning,' Proudman had this to say:
"Unacceptable and misogynistic behaviour. Think twice before sending another woman (half your age) another sexist message."
Half your age? What's a person's age got to do with anything? I smell a distinct whiff of something nasty here, something discriminatory. The likes of Harman and Proudman always believe they own the rights on indignation. Well, I've got news for the pair of them: it cuts both ways.
Yes, it appears our befuddled human rights' lawyer is not only devious, confused and untrustworthy, she's also ageist. Oops. Just like her hero - sorry - heroine - holier-than-thou-Harman, Proudman is a mass of indignant contradiction - quite happy to 'call out' what she terms as misogyny, while in the very same breathe revealing her own very deep seated ageist prejudices.
This silly little girl urged Mr Carter-Silk to think twice in future; Well if I was Proudman I'd also certainly 'think twice' before opening my very immature gob and trying to ruin somebody's career solely to increase your own chances of landing a lucrative media career.
