Harman's Thatcher U-turn List

Harman's office Thatcher U-turn Ha! Caught out!
Harriet Harman's officials have been forced to change a government fact sheet celebrating "women in power" which did not name Margaret Thatcher.

The Equalities Office "milestones" list names Labour politicians like Diane Abbott and Baroness Scotland.

But it did not mention Lady Thatcher by name, saying only: "1979: UK's first woman prime minister".

An Equalities Office spokesman said: "We have acknowledged the oversight and have taken steps to amend it."
It also mentioned the first PM of Sri Lanka but failed then to mention Indira Gandhi, Golda Meir and Gro Harlem Brundtland.
