'You're Too Ugly to Be in Politics'

Posted on the 12 February 2015 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From The Evening Standard:
Labour local councillor Karen Danczuk risked controversy today after allegedly suggesting only “pretty” people should go into politics.
She is said to have made the remark to Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman. She tweeted: “When I first met Harriet Harman I noticed how dowdy she looked.”
Ms Danczuk could not be contacted in time for comment and it was not clear whether she made the remark in a light-hearted way or at all.
But the claim threatened to cause fresh embarrassment to the senior Labour MP who is already facing criticism for touring the country in a giant pink phallus as part of a “woman-to-woman” campaign...
Harriet Harmann shot to fame by posting “tweed skirt and anorak selfies” on Twitter and has 38 followers.
