Harperson's Delusions of Power

Delusions of Power
Our old "friend" the grandstanding, publicity seeking, self promoting Labour Deputy Leader, Harriet Harperson, has thrust herself into the limelight yet again.

This time she has called for a website (Punternet, a site that a.o. advertises and rates male and female prostitutes) based in California to be banned.

She told the Labour Party Conference that it contained "pages and pages of women for sale in London".

Factoid: It also has "men for sale too".

The "sinister" website "fuels the demand for prostitutes" and puts women at risk:

"There is now a website ... where pimps put women on sale for sex and then men who've had sex with them put their comments on line.

It is PunterNet and fuels the demand for prostitutes. It is the ultimate commodification of women and puts women at risk. It is truly degrading

It was "a sinister development which we are determined to stop".

Do some research Harperson, the site has been around for years (along with countless other sites advertising prostitutes).

Why, only now, do you call for this one site to be banned?

Why do you only speak up for the women advertised on the site, what about the men?

What about all the other sites that advertise prostitutes? There are thousands of them.

Why have you given Punternet such free publciity ahead of all of the other sites that do the same?

Can a third rate British politician really ban a site based in another country, especially one that has the right to freedom of expression enshrined in its constitution?

Well loyal readers, as you all know...she can't, even the habitually gaffe prone and dim witted Harperson knows that.

So what's the real game here then?

Ah, wait a minute, I see...

Harperson said:

"I've raised it with the US Ambassador to London and I've called on California's governor Arnie Schwarzenegger to close it down.

Surely it can't be too difficult for The Terminator to terminate PunterNet and that's what I'm demanding he does. And if he doesn't, I've got a message for Arnie: I'll be back

Harperson is clinging to the shroud of "celebrity" hoping that by associating herself with a very well known, and reasonably competent, celebrity and politician, some of his success will rub off on her.

Why the need for association with someone famous?

Harperson is after Broon's job, this gives her some pre election publicity that will (in her view) give her a springboard for taking Broon's job after the election.

Surely the Labour Party has better people than this in its ranks?

Thank "The Sky Fairy" that this miserable excuse for a political party will be out of power for a generation come next May.

Haperson will then have to look for a real job.

Will the private sector employ such a person?

  1. Sadly for Hattie Hatesmen, no one takes her seriously now, actually, did they ever?

    I find it sickening the way our top politicians seek to be associated with celebs etc.
    I found the spectecle of Mr Brown trying to get a one on one with Saint Barrack of Obama, rather embarrassing to say the least. He looked like a love sick school girl when he got his wish....So often he sayes in speeches; "Me and president Obama....." as if that gives greater weight to his point. Mind you, when the foreign secretary met with Saint Barrack, he went cow eyed and bright red; It seems this condition is endemic within the Labour leadership.

    It seems to me that Messers Blair, Brown and Obama are more popular outside of their own countries than inside them.

    Just how some silly British politician thinks anyone in America will take a blind bit of notice of her agenda just shows how deluded and arrogant she is.

    I see that Punternet are now thanking Harperson for all the free publicity she's given them, and the hits on their website are up by about a squillion percent!

  3. Anonymous11:43 AM

    archroy - lol. Law of unintended consequences, anyone?

  4. I cant beleive she would stoop so low as to associate herself with quotes from the best film ever made (in my opinion).
    I would not be surprised if Arnie laughed in her face.
    "I'll be back"??? And WTF are you going to do? Ugly him to death, Medusa style?

    This is typical of her limelight grabbing. No research, no real facts, just a quick and easy way to get herself back in the public eye.

    Silly cow

  5. Bucko;
    ""I'll be back"??? And WTF are you going to do? Ugly him to death, Medusa style?""

    That is so funny....It has set me up for the weekend!!!! ROFLMAO.

    This seems to be an ideal oportunity for someone versed in the ways of the internet superhighway to set up a website where we can rate politicians ? You could call in claimsnet or screwednet maybe ??

  7. Hattie is swiftly becoming a caricature of herself. She imagines she has taken over the mantle of her sainted uncle, the holy fool Lord Lonford, who made a consistent ass of himself with his blundering forays against pornography.

    I had the dubious privilege of knowing him slightly. There are lots of amusing stories about him. One of my favourites is that he complained to the manager of Hatchards bookshp in Piccadilly because his latest book wasn't featured in their window display.

    The book's title was "Humility"!

  8. Sorry for the typo - Lord Longford.

    I am not going to comment, as I do not wish to give Harriet Hatesmen any publicity.

    If things are bad now, and they undeniably are attrocious, I shudder to think just what this country will be like if she ever becomes prime minister!

    Here's what Punternet has to say:

    "Dear Mrs. Harman,

    "I have a few points to make regarding your recent remarks regarding my website and your fantastic demand that the Governor of California close it down.

    "Firstly, PunterNet is not violating any laws. If it were, then surely the many websites catering to the US prostitution scene (where sex for pay is almost completely illegal) would already have been closed down.

    "In the USA, there is a concept called "freedom of speech" which is considered the most important personal right guaranteed by the Constitution. It exists specifically to prevent the sort of abuse of power that you are attempting. The Governor (indeed, even the President) has no authority with which to shut down a perfectly lawful enterprise such as PunterNet.

    "PunterNet was not the first, and is certainly not the only, website in the UK with the same subject matter. Rather than creating the demand for commercial sex, sites like PunterNet are a response to that demand, which has existed since the dawn of mankind and certainly long before the advent of the Internet!

    "One of the missions of PunterNet is education - to provide information and guidance in hopes that the commercial sex scene is limited to consenting adults and those who choose of their own free will to engage in it.

    "If sites like this one did not exist, and if prostitution were outlawed, then it would effectively be handed to organised crime on a platter - just as happened with liquor during Prohibition. If, on the other hand, sexwork is recognised as a legitimate, honourable profession, then there will be no market for the criminal elements, and the truly despicable aspects of the scene such as sex slavery and trafficking will die out. Surely that is a far more desirable goal than driving it back underground where it will then consist only of criminals and victims?

    "In closing, I would like to thank you for the huge influx of traffic to my website which your actions have caused. I am sure that the ladies who are a part of the PunterNet community thank you as well, as they will no doubt benefit financially from the many new clients who might otherwise never have found them. "

  13. My local newspaper picked up on 'Mad Hatties' rant and in true tabloid style joined in the "this website is disgusting, degrading and its owners should be strung up" over-reaction. This is the same newspaper that had roughly 18 column inches devoted to escort services on its personal ads pages, numerous adverts for dodgy chat lines and a page of 'dating' adverts on the lines of "Debbie, 43, looking for NSA fun times".

    It was quite amusing to read the comments on its website as to how two faced it was being.

  14. Surely that message from Puntrnet should read: "the US prostitution scene (where sex for pay is almost completely legal)"?

  15. microdave7:48 PM

    Well that's another hit for PunterNet! Well done Harmperson, you old hag.

    I think a website to rate politicians would be doomed to failure though....

  16. There aren't any first-rate politicians, and not many second-rate ones. The rest aren't worth bothering with.

  17. PunterNet say that since Batty Hattie attacked them, the number of hits on their website has risen tenfold - from 200,000 to 2 million a day.

    So that's her post-election employment problem solved: arch-pimp international!

  18. Lord Longford was the supporter of sick evil child killers yet was offended by Pornography?

    I think he had all his priorities round the wrong way.


  19. skydog11:38 AM

    Longford was a gullible prick GHU, anyone who thought that Myra Hindley was 'a good woman' cannot be playing with a full deck.

  20. Frank Longford was an earnest RC convert who believed everyone, however evil, was redeemable. He saw himself as Myra Hyndley's redeemer.

    He was totally devoid of any sense of humour. A holy fool, more foolish than holy.

  21. I see that Ms Harman is alleged to have driven away from the scene of an accident where she hit a stationary car while illegally talking on her mobile phone, without giving her address and insurance details as the law requires, saying "I'm Harriet Harman. You know where you can get hold of me".

    I can think of several places I would like to get a firm grip on her!
