Harriet Harman: Politician of the Year LOL
It's 11 years since I left the world of political lobbying, and I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I had missed it. Times have certainly changed in the lobbying world and this is illustrated by Dod's who are organising the 2007 Public Affairs awards. Flicking through the nominations, I see Andrew Pierce, Gaby Hinsliff and Jon Sopel have been shortlisted for political journalist of the year, while Hilary Benn, George Osborne and Harriet Harman are up for politician of the year. And there was me thinking that lobbyists had their fingers on the Westminster pulse. Why on earth would Harriet Harman figure in such a list?
