Harriet Yeo

Harriet Yeo is a British trade unionist and Labour Party politician. She is a member of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party, and National Treasurer of TSSA. She served as a Labour councillor in Ashford, Kent.

Yeo worked as a trade union official and is now a fundraising trainer for a national charity. She has a daughter, Angharad.

In 2005 Yeo led a campaign named 'Forgetmenot' for better hospital care for the elderly following her mother's experience. Her mother, Barbara, herself a former matron specialising in care for the elderly, had died after entering hospital with constipation. Yeo believed she was given too much morphine to relieve pain from arthritis, later contracting a hospital-acquired infection and dying aged 83.

In September 2006, she attacked Tony Blair over his parenting, particularly of his son Ewan Blair, contrasting it with a recent policy announcement he had made criticising single and teenage mothers, implying that they frequently entered prostitution and suggesting that state intervention in parenting could happen "pre-birth".
