BBC Question Time audience member has slammed the Labour MP Dawn Butler for “hypocrisy”
He said: “So, Labour and the Tories can trade barbs with each other all they want on who said what and everyone has got as much ammunition as they want.
“The hypocrisy of the Labour Party when they come back and say ‘Jared O’Mara is just suspended but Toby Young should be sacked’.
“There are people in Sheffield now who don’t have a voice in Parliament because the Labour Party just won’t do anything. They need to take action and be consistent in dealing out their outrage.”
Piers Morgan, replied: “He said some distasteful things, no one is denying that. Dawn and Angela Rayner, amongst others, led a charge to get him sacked.
“So they got his scalp. Toby Young is off this little quango, nobody had heard much about it anyway – no one had really heard about Toby Young before this week, probably.
“What it raises to me, is the question of hypocrisy, double standards and consistency.”
Mr Morgan continued: “He is still a Labour MP, he hasn’t been sacked. He posted far worse stuff and when it all came out and Angela Rayner said ‘I stand by this guy, this is in the past, he said sorry and we need to move on’.
“I think we are giving into mob rule and it does not apply the same standards to the Labour side that it does to the likes of Toby Young who happens to be a Tory.”
Ms Butler said: “I am not in favour of someone who talks about dressing as a woman and going to gay clubs to molest lesbians and writing about it.
“Or, laughing about anal rape of women, or talking about eugenics and weeding out disabled people or complaining that schools have ramps so disabled people can get an education – that is not suitable criteria for someone to be appointed to a Government position.”
Millennial Remainer BRUTALLY slapped down for defending Brexit rebel MP on Question Time
A millennial remain voter was put in his place after publicly supporting a rebel MP.
The young audience member from Barnsley said: “I really couldn’t agree more with Nicky and Robert.
“I mean, all the way through the Leave campaign they shouted and yelled about sovereignty for the UK Parliament and when Nicky bravely votes for that she suddenly gets attacked – it doesn’t make any sense.
Isabel Oakeshott said: “Can I just pick you up on that, because where exactly was Nicky when sovereignty was ceded to Brussels over decades?
“I didn’t see Nicky manning the barricades in favour of sovereignty. And I want to make another point which is about trust here. We’ve got a real issue with trust in our MP’s to carry out the will of the people.
“Take Barnsley as an example, 68 per cent of people in Barnsley voted to leave. Unfortunately, 73 per cent of our MPs are Remainers.
“And that is now being played out in the Houses of Parliament in a way that erodes trust in the execution of the will of the people and I think that is a real problem.”
The Withdrawal Bill was passed on Wednesday 309 to 305 in favour.
