The Labour Party has announced that its prospective parliamentary candidate for Harrow East will be a woman.

The decision was taken following consultations with local constituency parties.

The party has agreed that candidates will also be chosen using all women shortlists in Ealing Central and Acton, Enfield North, Hornsey and Wood Green, and Lewisham Deptford.

A minimum of five women will therefore be fighting Labour’s dozen battleground constituencies across London.

Men still outnumber women in the House of Commons by five to one and three to one among Labour MPs.

Oh dear. More ideological drivel. So this time it's equal opportunities - provided you are a woman. Thank God I live in Harrow West. Unless, of course, they make Gareth Thomas walk around in a skirt. Bunch of losers.
