Harriet Harman says the next Labor leader should be a woman | Harriet Harman

Harriet Harman said the next Labor Party leader should be a woman, adding that it was “absolutely embarrassing” that the party did not have a woman at its head.

The veteran Labor MP also spoke of her grief at the loss of her husband, Jacques Drome “suddenly” when he died in January.

Harman, the MP for Camberwell and Beckham, who plans to step down after the next general election, told GB News: “As and when we do in the distant future, it has to be a woman next day over time, because it’s absolutely embarrassing that the Conservatives have two and it wasn’t We even have a leader in the opposition, let alone a prime minister.

I think it’s partly because the women in the Labor Party are more disruptive than the women in the Conservative Party. Women in the Conservative Party tend to work with men without challenging them the way we do.”

When asked how she coped after her husband’s death, Harman said: “I’m not quite sure the answer to that question, because it’s only been six months since he passed away, and he died suddenly, suddenly.

“I feel like widowhood is something that happens to most women who are married or have a partner. But there is a real mystery to me in terms of…how do you move forward with your life?”

Drome, a father of three and a Labor MP, died suddenly of heart failure in his apartment in his constituency in Birmingham-Erdington six months ago. The couple married in 1982.

“I have children, I have grandchildren, I have my constituents, and somehow I have no choice but to do what they call ‘crack.’
