Member of Parliament wears stab vest to walk round her const

HARRIET Harman in stab vest to walk round her constituency. if this is an April fool joke she needs a reality check if not them she probably won’t be getting a Christmas card from the HS.

If she is in fear of walking the streets what is she doing about it and I also feel she lack courage if she is pandering to her advisers.

Oh My Buddha.
Are these people real ?
Arit Harman with a squad of Goons and she insists on a Bullet/Stab Proof jacket for a walk with all the press.

Or does she know something we Prols don't.

Heard her on Radio 4 this morning, saying it was just the same as wearing a hard hat if she was on a building site !!

There is no crime, only thought crime. It's official.

She was wearing the vest, not because of crime, but because HSE advised her that there may be trip hazards and spiked railings in her work environment, and thus, like a hard hat, she is required to wear something to protect her.

Is it not to protect her from the other politicans that are trying to stab her in the back? :thumleft:

Obvious photo opportunity from the Queen of the PC brigade. Senior black Officer, Asian SNCO and white copper. She must think people are as stupid as she is.

Then maybe they need to get guns instead?

Is this a stab vest or a S.T.A.B. vest? Maybe she is celebrating the TA's centenary.

I wondered where that old green string thing disappeared to.

Complete non-story being bigged up by certain sections of the media. There's enough to criticise the government about without being sidelined by this issue.

DBL, Disagree, good story....I would not mind betting all the cabinet have them...the issue is who do they perceive is the treat and why...and what protection they have put in place for the general public

So you don’t think that an MP believing that there is a requirement to wear a stab vest to go out in public is a problem. If she believes that the threat is so great maybe we should all have PPWs. What is she saying about the country, what signal is she putting out? Is it the same signal that the King gave when he remained in London during the war? How many other MPs wear stab vests or think they are targets?

I suspect that as a cabinet minister she normally/habitually wears one! It weas just with the mild weather yesterday she took off her top-coat...

As for the story/non-story aspect, well if the Home Secretary says she is scared to walk the streets and Ms Harman pops on a stab vest to visit Peckham, well then that is a story. It is a "what the F"£$ are the government doing to restore people's confidence in the face of fear of crime" story to be exact. If they can't get the PR side right, then it is a high probability they are not getting the TOC/TOTCC battle right too...as if we didn't know that.

Sorry to disagree DBL, she has given the story "legs" by her comments since. She told John Humphries on Today that the reasons for wearing it were the same as wearing a hard-hat on a building site, by implication therefore because there was sufficient risk to require the wearing of this protection. Had she said that her reasons for wearing the vest were purely to get an idea of the weight/comfort of equipment worn by beat officers she would have killed the story then and there. In truth the photos are more of an own-goal on her part, but her comments since show lack of judgement and expose her as another biff in the Cabinet (as if we did not really know that she was useless beforehand) and should be included in the "incompetent" quota that GB is required under PC equal opportunities regulations (Peter Hain being the first official “incompetent” declared by GB)! :)

...................and they say that MPs are out of touch. This one really does know what people think of her.

The Swedish Foreign Minister's murder in 2003 strikes me as a good reason:

not sure if they are the same, the Swedish minister was shopping on her own. where as the muppet in question was surrounded by the police (most likely armed with weapons)

lets hope the person stalking her (now or in the future is good at head and neck shots!!

Well if she's that scared then she should have a word with that fat mouth breathing dullard Jacqui Schmitt

and give the cops their pay rise,

bin the stupid human rights based arrse covering paperwork

and get the shiny arrsed street dodgers in the police offices out on the beat.

Agree, politicians that I have come across have all been a bit Thick Skinned (no! not just thick). Collective "Rhino Arrseesesesese" and not in touch. They should know they do not have to wear the same in public as outher countries tin pot dictators> :? and it Does Make Her Arrse Look Fookin Big!! :meditate:
