Jared Victim Vows: I Won’t Rest Until He Says Sorry

The woman who accused Labour’s Jared O’Mara of calling her an “ugly bitch” today vowed to challenge him at public events until he issues a personal apology to her. Sophie Evans went to Jared’s first unrestricted access event since the scandal erupted around his conduct. She went along to a public meeting at Sheffield library this week alongside other critics of the MP’s conduct. She told Guido:

“When Jared saw us I’ve never seen fear in a man’s eyes like that, he was like a rabbit caught in the headlights… he was trying to avoid eye contact. He suddenly announced he had to leave 15 minutes early… then he left. We talked to some really nice people from the Womens’ Equality Party… he’s clearly trying to avoid us… I want him to admit what happened and I want him to apologise, and be a real MP and stop running away… we aren’t going to let it go… we’ll be there if he does another public meeting, and we’ll get thrown out again, but we’ll be there.”

Labour’s investigation into Jared remains unresolved – and there’s no sign of progress. (UPDATE: He has today been reinstated). Victims taking the matter into their own hands…

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
