The local MP for Bristol East, Kerry McCarthy, has Tweeted that the Express has just done the 'Hitler was a woman' trick on her.
She was asked if she supported DNA testing of local men, she said yes she did. This becomes the statement 'MP calls for DNA testing'.
So response I gave when asked if I'd support DNA testing of men in Bristol re Jo Yeates murder is "MP calls for.." front page Express.
Not impressed, looks like an MP trying to get publicity off back of a tragic case. I was asked to comment on people's calls for DNA tests.
Yes, I'd support DNA testing if police thought it wd help catch killer, and it's been v important in solving other cases, but...
An MP led the call for all men living in the same city as the landscape architect to give saliva samples to the police as their investigation makes slow progress. Kerry McCarthy, Labour MP for Bristol East, said the need to catch Joanna’s killer overrides the questions of intrusion and invasion of privacy in a mass screening.
So answering a direct question means that you are 'leading the call'...Story here
