It was probably his charming habit of posting image of mutilated bodies into people's replies.

Was there a motivation for that?

They were Jewish. He'd post pictures of dead Palestinians.

I have no idea and no desire to stare into this particular abyss. Fill your boots:

I said "Jewish." Not "Israeli".

Former Tory MP for Oxford West & Abingdon is now a peer and a junior minister in Health. Didn't think much of her back in the day, still don't now.

39 is going to really lower the average age of the Upper House, and gives me some hope, however.

A quick google suggests that she has largely the same set of horrible views as most of the other fuckers in there despite being twenty years younger. Went to the same university etc. Same old fucking old.

The rumours I've heard around her 2010 win centred on the circulation by indirect organisations of US-style 'baby killing' leaflets regarding Evan Harris' support for stem cell research and abortion . I've never been able to get this satisfactorily confirmed as although there is a sample here, it's not clear if she or the local party were involved. The way she tied herselves in knots over gay marriage suggests where she felt her support lay, however.

EDIT: In the interests of fairness I'll add that she has repeatedly denied any connection.

My Local MP got made a Sir in the NY honours, I can't think what he could have done to cause that...

https://www.garystreeter.co.uk/news/bre ... ahead-vote

Quote:
Here is a summary of my position on Brexit as we approach the end game:

I voted to remain, but the people voted to leave in 2016. My constituency voted to leave by a margin of 55/45*
We said we would honour the outcome of the referendum, and so we must
With me this is an article of faith and non-negotiable. We have to honour the vote to leave the EU
It is for Parliament to decide how we leave
I want us to honour the 2016 vote without crashing the economy, which is why I am backing the PM’s deal

Under the deal, we leave the EU, Customs Union, Single Market, CFP and CAP, all by the end of 2020, or if we have to enter it the further backstop arrangement. I am perfectly happy with the way in which the backstop can be brought to an end. It provides time for businesses to adjust and gives us the right to enter our own trade deals. All perfectly sensible
I am relaxed about the nature of the future trading relationship so long as it is as frictionless as possible
I do not support a second referendum, as this would not help to finally resolve this matter, and would prolong the deep division in our country.
I do not want us to leave without a deal because of the possible disruption to the local and national economy.
I will therefore support the deal and strongly back the PM in her efforts to deliver on the wishes of the British people
Opinion in my constituency remains deeply divided, but I am elected to exercise my own judgement, which I am doing.


(My bolding)

*I was under the impression that it was a remain constituency, but all the information that I can find defines the result of the "South Hams" without separating the parliamentary constituencies of South West Devon and Totnes so I don't know where he got that info from.

Maybe I just too cynical

Well, that's nice that he is relaxed about it. Nothing to worry about then, it'll all be fine.
