Jess Philips Reads Out Sexual Harassing Text Messages from Suspended Tory

One of the vile actions May committed in order to hang on to power yesterday was to give the whip back to two Tories, who had been suspended for sexual harassment. As readers of this blog will be well aware, I’m certainly no fan of Blairite Jess Philips, who has done everything she can to undermine Corbyn’s leadership. She’s spoken before in parliament about obscene messages she received online, though this was to smear Corbyn’s supporters as racist and misogynists. They’re not, and have themselves received vociferous abuse and threats. Martin Odoni on his blog a month or so ago described how one young woman was stabbed by an angry mob in a pub, simply because she was a Labour left-winger. This time Philips reads out the message one of these disgraced Tories sent to a female constituent as an example of his campaign of abuse and intimidation against her and another woman in this clip from RT. And she’s absolutely right to do so.

Addressing the House, Philips reads

‘She’s so cute, so sweet, I can’t wait to beat her. Can she take a beating?’ Not my words, Mr Speaker, the words of the MP for Burton while barraging two of his female constituents with thousands of sexual text messages. Last night the leader of the House’s party gave him and the MP for Dover the whip back without any due process. What does this send about how any process here in this place can ever be trusted? I’d like her to answer me that question and also to answer me: What matters more, political power or protecting victims of sexual harassment and abuse?

The answer from Tweezer’s actions is that she clearly sees clinging on to political power far more important than protecting women from being sexually harassed and abuse. Well, the leader of a party that has murdered tens of thousands by throwing them off benefits, and is now boasting of how low wages are in Britain, are hardly going to let a little thing like sexual harassment bother their consciences.

Tweezer and her party are a disgrace. Get her and them out!
