Offensive and Unacceptable, Indeed

Clive Lewis ought not to have used such language. But Jess Phillips has no place on any high horse. She made her name by telling Diane Abbott, who is old enough to be her mother, to "fuck off". Indeed, she appears never to have done anything else as an MP.

As for Harriet Harman, I am still banned from certain very high profile political blogs for having been going on throughout the present century about her links to the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Lewis will be due the slightest censure when Anne Marie Morris has been expelled from the House of Commons for using the n-word while addressing a public meeting earlier this year. No United States Senator or Representative could survive that, and nor should she.

I fail to see the anti-racist credentials of any MP who explicitly presents herself in those terms yet who fails to move that expulsion.
