Gloria Goes Quiet Over Violence Toward Women

After Michael Fabricant joked in the summer about punching a woman in the throat, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Women and Equality Gloria De Piero went all “Dear Prime Minister”:

“Such an overt threat of violence towards women clearly has no place whatsoever in our society. It is doubly shocking, however that this should come from a Member of Parliament. I have no doubt you find such behaviour and attitudes, as displayed by one of your MPs, unacceptable.

As Leader of the Conservative Party it is incumbent upon you to act in this instance and to make clear that there is no home for such views within the Conservatives. As such, the public will wish to know what action you will be taking against Mr Fabricant. I would also be grateful if you would spell out clearly that the Conservative Party believes that threats of violence in any form are unacceptable and that such views will not be tolerated.

I look forward to your response. In light of the widespread public interest in this matter, I am releasing this letter to the media.”

Overnight it has emerged that unreconstructed frothing lefty-lunatic John McDonnell fired up a crowd of Stop the War hippies into a frenzy by calling for ‘bastard’ benefit’s minister Esther McVey to by ‘lynched’. Time for Gloria to kick into action once again as ‘such an overt threat of violence towards women clearly has no place whatsoever in our society’. After all, it is ‘incumbent upon’ her ‘to act in this instance and to make clear that there is no home for such views within the’ Labour Party. Surely that wasn’t just political posturing?

CORRECTION & CLARIFICATION: John McDonnell has got in touch to explain that he “merely reported what had been said by Esther McVey’s own constituents and the quote you attribute to me is absolutely untrue.” So if Guido understands him correctly, John did in fact say those words, just as a quotation from one of Esther’s constituents. Guido completely accepts his explanation though some of our readers think “he’s just a lying lefty who is being disingenuous, he didn’t quote those words because he found them unacceptable, did he?” Hope that clears up the matter.

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
