Conservative MP Christopher Chope strikes again

This time he's blocked legislation designed to protect children from female genital mutilation.

Aneurin Bevan was right, the Tories are lower than vermin.

Who voted for this bastard? Think how many disgusting, vile bastards there are living there to put this creature into Parliament.

Nye Bevan had it right. They will never change, vermin born of vermin.

That man is an unbelievable cunt

Who voted for this bastard?

It looks like Christchurch is one of those Tory strongholds where they would (and did) vote for a donkey providing it wore a blue rosette.

#1, #2, #3, but still they are voted for,until the media are faced up, nothing will alter.

As always, it is necessary to point out that Chope is making a valid, if somewhat arcane, point about Parliamentary procedure rather than actually signalling his support for (in this case) FGM.

Look. Some right wingers like to letch and perv up girls skirts. What’s wrong with that? Political correctness has gone mad. If you ask me.Now you can’t even chop of a girls clitoris without THE LEFT making a fuss. Did you know Hitler was left wing? I saw something about it on YouTube.

darkhorse - 08 Feb 2019 19:18:33 (#9 of 105)

If such MPs didn't make these arcane procedural points, what would happen? Would we be inflicted by a random bunch of laws - good and bad - from keen backbench activists?

Look out girls, here comes Christopher Chop.

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Feb 2019 19:24:03 (#11 of 105)

He’s picked a strange hill to die on. Surely there are plenty of other private members bills he could object to, and make the point equally well without looking like he’s in favour of upskirt photographers and FGM?

darkhorse - 08 Feb 2019 19:26:52 (#12 of 105)

Doesn't he object to them all, he just gets reported on the ones it sounds OUTRAGEOUS to block?

darkhorse - 08 Feb 2019 19:27:50 (#13 of 105)

Funny job though, appointing yourself the procedure police in the HoC...

HouseOfLametta - 08 Feb 2019 19:36:52 (#14 of 105)

I wish he’d hurry up and die on his hill. He’s not signalling his support for FGM, he’s actually supporting it.

RosyLovelady - 08 Feb 2019 19:51:50 (#15 of 105)

Tsk, it's pure coincidence that he always chooses this sort of thing to demonstrate his arcane points.

Dubris - 08 Feb 2019 19:56:44 (#16 of 105)

I'm just about prepared to accept that in Christopher Chope's mind he's the saviour of parliamentary democracy. Can anybody tell me if he's ever done anything positive to remove what he sees as the problem with parliamentary procedure, rather than just blocking bills that might have a social benefit?

airynothing - 08 Feb 2019 19:57:45 (#17 of 105)

Doesn't he object to them all, he just gets reported on the ones it sounds OUTRAGEOUS to block?

Nope. He objects to most of them, but not the ones his friends propose.

Snarlygog - 08 Feb 2019 19:57:56 (#18 of 105)

Funny that Peter Bone's bills don't get objected.

barkis - 08 Feb 2019 19:58:05 (#19 of 105)


He didn't object to 2 bills presented by his soulmate Peter Bone.

HouseOfLametta - 08 Feb 2019 19:59:12 (#20 of 105)

Because it’s really important to discuss whether cutting little girls fannies is a bad thing or not. How will we ever know otherwise?
