A large group of bizarre women circle round Tony Blair. They are not benign. They have no understanding of normal relationships between men and women.
Recently, a woman commentator said Harman was a gender supremacist.
Hock calls them “gender racists”.
Recently, I heard Harman speak at a DV conference ( www.ivorcatt.com/2029.htm ). She is set to cause major damage to society.
The attitude of these four women is appalling, and very destructive. Further, they have the power to destroy.

Judith Jones is new to me but not Jacqui Saradjian - she's also connected with Bindle and 'women against rape' DV and that sort of thing
The review team was led by Dr Richard Barker, a social worker in an academic post at the University of Northumbria; Roy Wardell, a former director of social services for Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council; Jacqui Saradjian, a clinical psychologist and Judith Jones, a senior social worker. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2160607.stm
The review, which delivered its report in November 1998, was a "shambles" which denied the pair basic legal safeguards, Mr Justice Eady said. "The 'accused' were not notified of exactly what was alleged against them, or told what the evidence was, or given an opportunity of testing it or responding."
The pair were assured that interviews with the children were untainted by leading questions, when the team knew the contrary to be the case. The team then "chose to promulgate to the council and to the wider public what was recognised within days to be a specious and disreputable document. They must have appreciated the harm they would do to the claimants and indeed the physical risks to which they were choosing to subject them. ....... The judge made a "very rare" finding of malice against the team. They had forfeited the protection of qualified privilege, which usually protects reports produced in the public interest from libel claims, because "they included in their report a number of fundamental claims which they must have known to be untrue and which cannot be explained on the basis of incompetence or mere carelessness". http://www.guardian.co.uk/Print/0,3858,4472728,00.html

Who's who: the inquiry team
Judith Jones is an independent social worker, consultant and trainer in child protection. She has been a social worker, senior manager, trainer and consultant to local authorities and the voluntary sector, specialising in child protection work. She qualified as a social worker in 1976, and has a masters degree in child protection studies. Ms Jones is on the Law Society's expert witness register. She is also a visiting research fellow at the child and women abuse studies unit at the University of North London.
Professor Richard Barker is head of the child and family studies at Northumbria University. A sociology graduate, with a masters degree from Bradford University and a doctorate from Edinburgh University, he trained as a teacher in Birmingham and as a social worker in Leeds. He has worked for three local authorities in Yorkshire, and has conducted research into a range of issues, including child protection and children in care. Professor Barker founded and led a multi-professional, post-qualifying child protection course, approved by social work and nursing qualification boards. He has also acted as an independent chairman of child protection conferences and reviews, and undertaken consultancy work and training on child protection in the UK and throughout Europe.
Roy Wardell, former director of social services for the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, has 42 years experience in social services, with specialist knowledge of issues affecting children and families. He has worked for several local authorities, both internally and as an outside adviser. He was assistant director of social services for Humberside county council, and was an adviser on social services to the Association of Metropolitan Authorities until 1993. During the same period, he was a member of the children and families' committee of the Association of Directors of Social Services. Over the past nine years, Mr Wardell has acted as independent chairman of two adoption panels and of complaints review panels for 12 local authorities.
Dr Camille San Lazaro, senior lecturer in paediatric forensic medicine at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, was not a member of the inquiry team. However, she examined 53 children in the case. Dr San Lazaro is a nationally-respected consultant paediatrician and child protection expert with 30 years experience as a paediatrician, published widely in the area of sexual abuse, and lecturing nationally and internationally. A member of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Dr Lazaro has been on the board of the northern training centre for child protection studies, and the board of Northumbria University MA in child protection studies. She was awarded an OBE for services to the care of sexually abused children in the New Year's honours 1999. She advises the children's charity NSPCC. But according to Mr Justice Eady, in his judgement on the Shieldfield libel case on July 30 2002, Dr San Lazaro was "unbalanced, obsessive and lacking in judgement". He said the inquiry team "clearly fell under the spell" of Dr San Lazaro.
Blair’s radfems in “business”
David Miller, finance director of PFI favourites Amey, resigned in August following the firm’s admission that its accounts were wrong by £61m and that it had actually made an £18m pre-tax loss rather than an anticipated profit.
The reason for this “confusion” (sic) was that company accounts are no longer allowed to treat the bidding costs for PFI schemes – involving an army of lawyers and accountants – as an investment.
All most embarrassing for Amey, of course, but no less so for the egg-spattered trade and industry secretary Patricia Hewitt. Last November the DTI gave a £35m, 12-year contract to Amey, the company which now employs her old colleague Baroness Jay alongside former Tory minister John Patten. In return Amey would run an “accounts service” for the department, which “will encompass all aspects of financial accounting and related systems support and will range from the management staff claims and allowances to provision of Treasury functions and the reporting of key business indicators”.
In short the DTI is now run by a minister, Hewitt, who previously worked for Anderson Consulting (erstwhile sister firm to disgraced accountants Arthur Anderson [who as its auditors covered for Enron, the biggest m multi-billion dollar scandal in history]) – and who in turn has privatised the ministry’s financial accounting to a company which has been forced to restate its own accounts to reflect more honestly its involvement in privatisation.
