Ignore the issue, look at the symbol.

Every Rochdale (or is it Rotherham) taxi driver is a rapist.

Labour sold the gold.

Brummie women are slags, or Birmingham is full of perverts. We're not quite decided.

Labour is soft. Doesn't matter what on, we're soft. As in we're not calling for public lynching.

The details don't matter, it's all about the mood.

I see Jess has pulled a stunt in the chamber for International Women's day.

I think I get the point, but I can't help thinking it was a bit of a fatuous thing to do.

Mike Sivier of Vox Political decides to indulge in a spat of victim blaming.

It’s very hard to gauge the moral rights and wrongs of this situation.
Nobody should be put in fear for their life while carrying out a job that doesn’t carry that kind of risk with it – and I would certainly suggest that being a representative of the people like an MP should not.

However, Ms Phillips has gone out of her way to make herself unwelcome among a large proportion of the Labour Party’s members and supporters.

Not only that; she has done this in her spare time – not as part of her work. You only have to look at her Twitter feed to see that she is an abrasive character.

You can probably tell, dear reader, despite the diplomatic language above, that I’m sick of her un-Parliamentary behaviour myself.

But I would not threaten her, and I certainly would not try to follow through on any threats she had received.

Perhaps we would be better off looking at this from another angle:

If she feels unwelcome, then the way she responds to that is a matter for her conscience.

Really would fit better in an Abbott thread, but given Jess's claim to fame is telling Abbott to fuck off, this interview seems relevant

Jess Phillips MP never told me to fuck off. What was extraordinary is that she made a big deal about telling people she had. Nobody ever checked back with me. If they had I’d have said no, she didn’t.

Given Diane Abbott is arguably the single biggest impediment to Labour being seen as a credible alternative Government in human terms, I'm surprised people like you who desperately want Corbyn to be PM aren't joining in in telling her to fuck off, Wino.

She's well meaning, if not always as slick as I'd like. I guess I'm one of those people who see intent as being as important as results.

Meanwhile Jess Philips is a self-promoting gobshite.

Worked for years tackling domestic violence and dealing with all sorts of horror stories. Became an MP to in part get that shit taken seriously.

Abbott, yeah, horrendous abuse. Also available at the drop of a hat for any chance at air time.

That explains a lot.

I've got my Annual Review at work later this week which decides whether or not I get a pay rise for this year. I wonder if I'll get one by telling him I intended to do really well rather than how I did?
