Following yesterday’s ‘men can’t be left to govern’ comments, John Prescott urged Harman to stop posturing and “get on with the job”. But, lo and behold, she’s at it again the very next day. This time it’s bankers:

Somebody did say... that if it had been Lehman sisters rather than Lehman Brothers then there may not have been as much (financial turmoil).

Again, you’ve got to call her political judgement into question. After yesterday’s outburst and the mini-controversy it engendered, she should have looked to calm the situation. Instead, she exacerbated it. Not wise for someone who’s nominally supposed to be running the country, and who’s trying to build some kind of leadership platform.
