Service With Justice
Or, indeed, Quo Fata Vocant.
Ian Lavery, whom I always thought ought to have retained the Presidency of the NUM while sitting as an MP and eventually serving as a Minister, has this day been removed as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Harriet Harman.
His crime of infantile ultra-Leftism? To have tabled amendments enabling Prison Officers to retire at 65, like Police Officers and members of the Fire Brigade.
Within weeks of the next General Election, Harriet Harman will be 65.
