Theresa May defends ‘rape comment’ candidate Cuthbertson

Read it and weep – especially if you’re a Tory:

Theresa May has defended a Conservative parliamentary candidate who made “shocking” comments about rape and homosexuality.

Peter Cuthbertson, the Tory candidate for Darlington, had said a woman’s “promiscuity” was relevant in determining whether she had consented to sex in rape cases.

At a press conference, the Prime Minister said: “Peter has made clear that his views have changed.”

In her answer to the question, Ms May did not condemn the prospective MP, and instead laid out her record on domestic violence.

Here’s the video clip:

Maybe Mr Cuthbertson’s views have changed. Do we have any blogposts of his showing evidence of that?

My own experience of blog-related accusations suggest that possession of such material would be a bonus. No? Oh dear.

Then what are we to make of Theresa May defending this man?

    Let us hope the people of Darlington, through the ballot box, give this nasty Tory a good kicking
