This is Tulip Siddiq, standing next year in Hampstead and Kilburn upon the retirement of Glenda Jackson. Tulip may look winsome and naive, but she's a shrewd political operator, whose publicity photos include both one of her in Father Christmas gear as well as one of her meeting women in burqas. Tulip's not quite the innocent little local girl that her publicity suggests; as the Guardian reports, "Her CV includes being policy adviser to Jowell, deputy field director for Miliband's leadership campaign, press officer for London Labour, a researcher for Philip Gould Associates, a researcher for the Greater London Authority, a caseworker for the MP Harry Cohen and a job at Amnesty International". But not, of course, any trace of a real job.
And no doubt Will Straw and Stephen Kinnock who, like Jack Dromey, have been accorded the status of honorary women for the purposes of the selection process, will do their best to convince voters that it's their skills at cake-making or white water rafting that suit them for office rather than their nepotistic placement.
The research about Labour packing its selection lists with members of the political class was carried out by the Guardian, but is well hidden in the online edition; the Mail on the other hand makes a major story out of it. Next year Weird Ed will ask voters to pick Tulip and her chums to pack Parliament with a cohort of MPs more out of touch with ordinary people, more remote from everyday life and more ignorant of mainstream Britain than at any time since the passing of the 1832 Reform Act.
They really haven't learned a thing, have they?
