Who is Harriet Harman? Labour MP prepared to be caretaker Prime Minister

LABOUR MP Jack Dromey has sadly passed away age 73.

Who is the politician's wife Harriet Harman – the Labour party stalwart – who he sadly left behind?

Who is Harriet Harman?

Harriet Harman is a long-serving MP who served as deputy Leader of the Labour Party from 2007 to 2015.

She served in several high-ranking cabinet positions under Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.

She was first elected to parliament in 1982 as MP for Peckham.

In 2019 pals said she would be willing to serve as caretaker Prime Minister should Boris Johnson's government fall.

She served as acting leader of the Labour party in 2010 and 2015.

Was Harriet Harman ever close to becoming Prime Minister??

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson said Harman could be appointed caretaker PM in 2019 in a desperate bid to block a no-deal Brexit.

She said: "What we need in a leader of an emergency government is a long-serving member of parliament who is respected on both sides of the House.

"Someone like Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman – the Father and Mother of the House. They are hugely experienced and, unlike Jeremy Corbyn, or indeed myself, they are not seeking to lead a government in the long term.”

It came after Jeremy Corbyn launched a cross-party alliance to block no deal by vowing to install himself as interim Prime Minister if Boris Johnson lost a vote of No Confidence.
