Coming shortly after a female Labour MP was shot and killed, apparently over her support of the ‘Remain’ campaign in the EU referendum, this Tweet ranks as something much worse than simply bad taste, I think.
But it is just one example of the kind of sentiment that has been stirred up by the ‘Leave’ campaign. People seem to think it is all right to make such comments now.
Female MPs receive any number of abusive messages all the time, none of which are in any way reasonable things to say. Some people have been prosecuted for them.
This Mr Creighton should be among them.
