Just a few short days ago and, it seemed, only minutes after nominations for the Labour Party leadership elections had opened, the progressive left as the neo Nazi wing of the party likes to style itself was throwing a hissy fit about all the candidates being straight, white and male.
Only one candidate had declared himself at that stage so while the Politically Correct Thought Police were speaking the truth it was, as is usual in their case, an irrational type of truth.
Thankfully for those of us who dreaded having the PCTP whining at us about the injustice of Britain not having a black lesbian Prime Minister, a Muslim Archbishop of Canterbury and a mincing screamer as our Queen, Diane Abbot has stepped up to the mark. Now Diane falls short of the PCTP ideal in several ways as she is neither lesbian nor disabled and she certainly has no learning difficulties but she is a woman and black.
That ought be enough to shut them right up you might think but no, now the PCTP are saying, Yeah but, no but, yeah but shes in love with Michael Portillo.
It may well turn out that the Labour hierarchy parachutes in a gay male candidate or even disqualifies one of the Millibands and several other candidates on the grounds that they arent diverse enough. It is sometimes necessary in the interests of fairness for members of the inner party to do things they know are unfair.*
Meanwhile the cynical among us detect evidence that there may be something else going on, dark forces at work as it were. We sniff the sulphurous scent of Peter Mandelson permeating the whole process. Thus we ask could the people behind Miss As candidacy be involved in a conspiracy to split the left wing vote thus smoothing the way of Blairite
Virgil Tracy David Milliband to the leadership?
You read it here first.
