Labour MP’s EDM: Stuart Hall is “Icon With Youth Of Today”

Along with that one about  Jimmy Savile, we can add EDM307 to the list of inappropriate Early Day Motions of our time. In 1999 nearly 50 MPs, many still about today, signed a motion praising Stuart Hall for forty years in broadcasting, describing him as an “an icon with the youth of today” whose “unique talent … gave pleasure throughout the run of this programme uniting the youth of this country,” before wishing him “many more years of broadcasting and laughter.” Hall has today pleaded guilty to 14 counts of indecent assault, with his youngest victim aged just nine years old. 

UPDATE: Tameside Labour Party might want to think about giving their disgraced celebrity backer the boot. Tony Pendry, now Lord Pendry, who put down EDM307 and had Hall on his campaign is rather quiet.

UPDATE II: Labour: “Stuart Hall is not a member of the Labour Party. His membership ended over ten years ago.”

I.E. It’s for your benefit too!

        it’s not a Party scandal at all you idiot. It’s a media scandal and primarily a BBC scandal. Media luvvies might have publicly associated themselves with politics (mainly Labour) but this isn’t about politics.
        The media may try to focus the scandal on politics to divert attention from themselves, but it is about them and how they ignored or even sanctioned and encouraged such behaviour for so long.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
