A bit from the Grauniad article which TWA didn't see fit to quote:
This has unleashed a torrent of online hate and daily calls of harassment to my office, which has exposed those who work for me to abuse that would not be acceptable in any workplace.
As reported elsewhere (emphasis mine)
Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle has stepped down from his role as a shadow environment minister, blaming a "campaign by the right-wing media".
The Brighton Kemptown MP said this had "unleashed a torrent of online hate" and daily abusive calls to his staff.
He said he would need "a few weeks" to recover from stress and support his team.
Mr Russell-Moyle has recently apologised for comments he made about Harry Potter author JK Rowling.
The MP said he had informed Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer of his decision to quit his post after speaking to him on the phone on Thursday.
In a statement on Twitter, he said he said he had made the decision "with regret", adding media attacks had made it "untenable" for him to stay on.
"It is my job to get political flak, but it is not the job of caseworkers, researchers and assistants to be attacked,
" he added...
Rather than whining about receiving abuse and wanting to go and hide, his stepping down is to protect the staff, at least in part.
He might be an unpleasant tit but, assuming the staff go with the post rather than with the incumbent, if his staff are being subjected to abuse they have done nothing to 'deserve' then stepping down is the right thing to do.
Even total dickheads can do the right thing occasionally.
