That ‘The Guardian’ is shocked by news that MPs – mostly Tories, it seems – “engaged in ‘sex and heavy drinking’ on trips abroad” is actually beyond bloody laughable
In a year when one now former MP, Neil Parish, was caught watching ‘tractor porn’ – whatever that may actually be – on a camera in the Chamber of the House of Commons, that The Guardian actually seems surprised that “No. 10 [is] ‘concerned’ MPs engaged in ‘sex and heavy drinking on trips abroad” is actually beyond laughable.
Aside from missing out on bringing up ‘Naughty Tories’ who used to go around groping such as the convicted sex offender and ex-MP for Dover, Charlie Elphicke – a criminal and husband of the immigrant hating current MP for Dover, Natalie Elphicke – being a fine example of the type of people politics in Britain currently sadly attracts, Rowena Mason, the paper’s ‘Whitehall editor,’ banged on about how a report focused on how “MPs were reportedly met by sex workers in their hotel rooms and engaged in raucous drinking while on parliamentary trips abroad.” Why on earth was she surprised?
Ms Mason’s article highlighted that the Prime Minister’s office responded to her enquiries by suggesting that it “clearly very concerning” that MPs on “fact-finding trips” including one Conservative MP “asked where the nearest brothel was when he visited a country in south-east Asia.” Why on earth was she surprised?
Going further, the MailOnline’s political editor, James Tapsfield, went further and added that: “Fears have been raised by over blackmail attempts by hostile states after claims MPs found sex workers waiting in their hotel rooms on a foreign trip. The politicians are said to have been part of an All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) visit to a dictatorship when the extraordinary circumstances arose.” Why on earth was Rowena Mason surprised?
Tapsfield continued and claimed: “There is no suggestion the MPs knew the prostitutes would be there, or that they used their services – but the claim highlights the potential risks with complaints that some trips are blighted by ‘sex and heavy drinking.’” Could Rowena Mason still be reasonably surprised?
Last month, the Independent reported that a senior Conservative MP had been reported to the police over allegations they committed rape and a series of sexual assaults” by “a group of colleagues, themselves Tory MPs” on 28th October.
Amongst other MPs currently under suspicion are a Tory MP, arrested in June 2021 and awaiting a charge decision, for alleged historic sex crimes and another on bail over separate allegations of rape.
