|Andrew Stephenson MP (right in circle)|
I've lost track of the number of times I've caught Tory MP for Pendle (Lancs) red-handed, grovelling for the Islamic vote. He was at it again in the House of Commons yesterday trying to get his own people thrown in the slammer merely for criticising their colonisation in exchange for keeping his £65K a year plus allowances position.
Andrew Stephenson (Con Pendle) To ask the Attorney-General what assessment he has made of the draft guidelines issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions on social media crimes in preventing Islamophobia online; and if he will make a statement.
The Solicitor-General: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) views all religious and racist crime seriously as it has a real and lasting effect on individuals, communities and society as a whole. Interim guidelines on prosecuting cases involving communications sent via social media were issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in December 2012, and they are intended to help prosecutors when considering cases referred to them by the police for a prosecution decision. The religiously aggravated element of any offence is a relevant consideration in the interim guidelines and prosecutors should follow the approach set out in the guidelines when dealing with such cases.
With the Pendle constituency already having one of the highest Muslim populations in the country (13% in 2001) surely he doesn't think they'll have any use for him once the English population is marginalised? Perhaps he thinks converting to Islam is a future career-enhancing option? Maybe he's reading this right now and deep-down realises,despite his pieces of silver,what an utterly worthless individual he really is.
