Sexminster Exposed


A Channel 4 News investigation finds that one in three people working in the sleazy booze-fuelled world of Westminster have experienced some form of sexual harassment at the hands of pervy MPs. One in five had witnessed some other poor young staffer being sexually harassed and over half said they had first or second-hand experience of hands-on politicians. Today’s Mail and Independent splash on the story.

The Tories have responded by ordering their MPs to sign a new code of conduct and implementing a grievance procedure for staff:

The code of conduct acts as a basic statement of what should be best practice in the workplace for Conservative Members and their staff. It explains the rights and responsibilities which are expected of both the employer and the employee.

The grievance procedure is available for staff to use if a grievance arises with their MP as employer. It protects both parties involved, brings with it consistency and fairness, and in doing so upholds the reputation of the Party and of Parliament. It is based upon a three stage process of mediation, grievance hearing and appeal. The process conforms to relevant employment law, ACAS guidance and HR best practice and is added as a schedule to the contract of employment.

They should get everyone at Number 10 to sign it too

        It’s all a charade because MP’s who face a claim from an employee are basically indemnified by the taxpayer of their defence costs and any award made. I believe Guido brought this little known fact to light. So as there are no real financial repercussions for an MP who sticks his or her unsolicited hand on the grotch of an employee, its hardly surprising so many of them do!

It occurs to me that gay staffer portrayed in Little Britain and his attraction to his boss, is a sort of inverse of what appears to have been going on in real life. If a staffer or helper declares that he is gay, bi, straight and the MPs declare whether they are gay, bi, straight if they are matched there should be no problem, then this business with Evans would not have happened. As an aside how many in the Cons are gay, bi, straight, get it out in the open and then those in power can do the jobbies thet were elected to do.

    For fuck’s sake, why do they have to spend yet more time/money creating yet more guidelines/rules for themselves?

    Why can’t they just use the law like everyone else?

    I don’t see why they specifically need to create guidelines that say things like:

    “don’t honk the tits of the woman sitting next to you unless she says it’s ok first”

    or:

    “don’t stuff your hand down the trousers of the bloke sitting next to you and grab his cock unless he says it’s ok first”

    You don’t need to create guidelines/laws that specify, for example, that killing someone with a kitchen knife is not acceptable, because it’s covered by the general law of murder.

    All these guidelines/laws that they create for themselves (including expenses) need to be thrown in the bin, and they need to be subject to the same laws as everyone else.

    I fail to understand why an MP should be subject to different laws than the laws that they create for other people.

    By exempting themselves from the laws that other people abide by, and by creating “guidelines” that imply that they are above the general law, they’re pissing all over us all.

    Someone at sky/bbc/itn needs to interview Cameron, and give him a straight forward question, and refuse to let him go until cameron answers it, and that question should be:

    “The parliamentary guidelines/laws for expenses and other matters put MPs above the law that they create for the rest of the country. MPs should not be above the law. So, you have a straight-forward option:
    1) Rescind ALL the MP-exceptions immediately.
    2) Continue creating laws for yourself, continue being above the law, and piss all over everyone that you serve in the country.
    Do you want to piss all over everyone in the country, or do you want to be a decent human being? Are you all corrupt evil fuckwits, or are there any decent MPs left at all? Do you want MPs to be the most despised people in the country, or do you want them to be respected?”

      Oust the fucking lot, and start afresh, and when that happens, the first thing they need to do is allow voters to fire their MPs between elections, and the second thing they need to do is get rid of all the legislation that puts themselves above the law. Everything good will then follow from that.

From the viewpoint of this STD, the most effective means of transmission would be by making the infested individual rich, powerful, controlling, and predatory. A fingerprint of this behaviour would be in the controlling regulation of others by which they do not themselves abide. Mindblowing.

    An indignant little man in a crash helmet says:

    Remember DSK.

    When that nutty young bint came forward and claimed she had been molested by this person she mentioned the matter at the time to her mother.

    Now DSK also knew the mother quite well and her reaction was to tell her daughter to keep quiet because the guy at the time was in the running to be President of France.

    Codes of practice would not stop this.

    You need clear offences on the Statute Book.

    The Palace of Westminster used make laws for us but none applied to the Palace of Westminster, time to make the place booze dry and seeing the laws are made in the EUSSR time that all laws applied to the Palace of Westminster after all the MPs have turned the place into a knocking shop.

    OMG, like people should need to be reminded to act appropriately! And to think that these tools are ‘Running’ the Country. Don’t tell me, what’s next?….

    Wash your hands after going to the toilet advice?..

    Look both ways before crossing the road?..

    Don’t pick something up of the floor and eat it if it’s been there for more than 5 seconds?..

      shell had the same problem about ten years ago when top management was very publicly caught out fiddling oil and gas reserves.

      the ethical workshops and indocrination that followed were mainly wasted on the rank and file.

    Perhaps if the House of Commons bars shut at 11pm there would be less groping by the “Honourable” members.

David Cameron drug policy reformer and leadership contender in 2005…

“Politicians attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator by posturing with tough policies and calling for crackdown after crackdown. Drugs policy has been failing for decades.”

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
