One of Labour's top two posts should always be held by a woman, Deputy Leader Harriet Harman has told a paper.and he said
She does "not agree with all-male leaderships" because men "cannot be left to run things on their own" she told the Sunday Times.
A balanced team of men and women make "better decisions," she added.
The MP reportedly tried to change the party's rules to ensure a female was always in a top job shortly after winning the deputy leadership contest.
"Quotes like this just raise leadership issues once again just at a time when we should all be pulling together.."This kind of Labour party/government prattling rather ignores one very important salient fact. The Labour party could barely find more than one candidate to have a leadership election at all.
"Success doesn't come from saying all male leaderships are bad"
"Why take away from the party the right to choose its leaders on the basis of ability?"
"In theory you were elected on merit, not your gender.."
Except for Gordon Brown, they couldn't find any other men or any women to nominate as leader
Gender was irrelevant.
There were no women who wanted to run for leader.
