Just has to be a member of the shithouse:Baroness Anita Gale. Anita Gale was given a peerage by Blair in 1999 and I’d love to know why. She is or was a Whip in the Lords. Between 1976-99 she worked for the Labour Party, first as Women’s Officer for Wales and then as the General Secretary of the Welsh Labour Party. Her only claim to fame since retirement in 1999 has been that she is President of Treherbert and District British Legion. At one point she had the biggest expenses claim of any peer.In Oct 2004 Wales Online reported an almighty row over Anita Gale’s lack of activity. Pauline Jarman, the Plaid opposition leader on Rhondda Cynon Taff Council, stated that in her five years as leader she could not recall one letter from Gale regarding any matter concerning the area. Gale didn’t deny it, she simply responded by saying that as a Peer, such matters were not her concern.Anita Gale was recently featured on BBC News Wales when it was announced that she is to be the Deputy Leader of Welsh Labour. I do hope that she has time to fit it in around her hectic work schedule of leading the Treherbert British Legion.
