What is Harriet Harman up to? Gamely attempting (or so it seemed) to take the heat off Global Gordon's embarrassing stumble yesterday, the Leader of the House has told Tory MPs she would "rather have Superman as our leader than their leader who is The Joker". So we not only have GB believing he has saved the world; his own party deputy thinks he's Superman. What exactly are these people on?
Perhaps Harriet got this idea following her cover interview with my colleague Sarah Mackinlay at Total Politics. She's on the cover of next month's issue which went to press yesterday. And she's depicted, rather affectionately, as Wonder Woman. Talk about a coincidence!UPDATE: I gather Labour MP Ann Moffat intevened following Harriet Harman's comments in Business Questions to say: "Wonder Woman does it again...".
