Ignore the issue, look at the symbol.

Every Rochdale (or is it Rotherham) taxi driver is a rapist.

Labour sold the gold.

Brummie women are slags, or Birmingham is full of perverts. We're not quite decided.

Labour is soft. Doesn't matter what on, we're soft. As in we're not calling for public lynching.

The details don't matter, it's all about the mood.

I see Jess has pulled a stunt in the chamber for International Women's day.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/international-women-s-day-labour-mp-jess-phillips-reads-out-names-of-120-women-killed-by-men-over-a6919576.html

I think I get the point, but I can't help thinking it was a bit of a fatuous thing to do.

I'm not sure about that especially as she starts to sound like Steve Coogan as the swimming pool security guard in Day Today.

Mike Sivier of Vox Political decides to indulge in a spat of victim blaming.

http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2016/08/1 ... ment-85130

Quote:
It’s very hard to gauge the moral rights and wrongs of this situation.
Nobody should be put in fear for their life while carrying out a job that doesn’t carry that kind of risk with it – and I would certainly suggest that being a representative of the people like an MP should not.

However, Ms Phillips has gone out of her way to make herself unwelcome among a large proportion of the Labour Party’s members and supporters.

Not only that; she has done this in her spare time – not as part of her work. You only have to look at her Twitter feed to see that she is an abrasive character.

You can probably tell, dear reader, despite the diplomatic language above, that I’m sick of her un-Parliamentary behaviour myself.

But I would not threaten her, and I certainly would not try to follow through on any threats she had received.

Perhaps we would be better off looking at this from another angle:

If she feels unwelcome, then the way she responds to that is a matter for her conscience.
