Last quote by Harriet Harman

This is the old boys' network at the top of the civil service laid bare – this is not a meritocracy, it is a boys' club. No one should believe that the men are 80% better than the women … This a self-perpetuating oligarchy of men at the top of the civil service and it is out of touch with modern Britain.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Harriet Harman is associated, including xenophobia and season. Most recently, Harriet Harman has been quoted saying: “In the spirit of solidarity and a commitment to democracy, let alone the sisterliness of feminism, we must all stand together against this. And, as Labour women, we've got to be as vocal in protesting and demanding action to protect Conservative women and candidates as we are in our demands to protect our own Labour women.” in the article Harriet Harman seeks political unity in fight to stop abuse of female MPs.

Harriet Harman quotes

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

My concern about Jeremy Corbyn was he could not take us towards government let alone into government. And he has confounded those expectations. Just as, if we'd have lost seats under his leadership, he would have had to take responsibility, we've gained seats under his leadership, and he can take the credit for that.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - Labour Party

We were expecting the Tories to lay waste to us. Instead it turned around, and we come back coherent, united. The atmosphere is verging from on one hand relief to jubilant, and the Tories are in disarray. And Jeremy Corbyn has to take the credit for that, because he was the leader and he's gone forward.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Article 50

The 3 million EU citizens living in this country make an important contribution. I urge Theresa May not to try to overturn their right to remain. During the debate on the government’s bill to trigger article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, it quickly became clear that the residence rights of EU and EEA citizens in the UK would be one of the most significant subjects that would occupy both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.feedback

The industry is supportive of such a move because well-run factories are being undercut by those that use desperately unscrupulous practices.feedback

Mar 04 2017

We found between a third and three-quarters of workers were either not paid the minimum wage, did not have employment contracts or were in unsafe working conditions. The growth of instant fashion, whereby a consumer can expect to cheaply buy something they have seen on the catwalk in a matter of days, has brought clothes production closer to home. But we must make sure that we do not reintroduce unacceptable working practices.feedback

Providing a clear definition of extremism is a difficult task and the government has yet to succeed in doing it.feedback

Jun 28 2016 - Xenophobia

The leaders of the Brexit campaign have engendered an atmosphere where some people believe it is open season now for racism and xenophobia.feedback

Jun 18 2016 - Twitter

We don't sit behind glass screens when we talk to our constituents. We don't, with a handful of exceptions, go around in armored cars. We need to be out there. So we need to create a climate where we can do our jobs without being under threat from a culture of venom.feedback

Everything that should be paid back will be paid back, the public should be confident of that. And I agree that today is an important step on the path to restoring public trust.feedback

Jun 04 2009

These are important elections, so I hope that there will be a big turnout for these elections and I know that there is a lot of people who are thinking because they are angry about the expenses they are not going to vote for anybody. I hope the people will be reassured that we are on the path of sorting out the whole problem of abuse of MP's expenses.feedback

May 08 2009

We all have to recognise that the public is angry, that public confidence is dented and the system needs to change. I think we all recognised that even before this morning – and that change is underway.feedback

We cannot stand by and do nothing now . I mean this is a big tide which has come into our economy and we can't just say well you'll just have to wait and things will get better in two or three years time.feedback

Jul 29 2008

It's still the case that some women are trapped by fear and they feel they have to stay with their husband because if they leave he would come after them and it would be even worse for them. So, although big progress has been made there is still a long way to go and we think the idea of a man beating his wife is simply not acceptable in the 21st century.feedback
