Everybody should be aware of Tory MP Simon Hart’s claim that left-wing activists have been responsible for a vast majority of abuse against Parliamentarians. I published an article about it on July 12.

Mr Hart claimed that, despite having asked left-wing MPs for examples of the abuse they have received, he did not receive any replies.

He had only to wait until later in the day.

Here’s Diane Abbott to explain:

We have example after example of Tory MPs abusing constituents, Labour MPs and, in Lucy Allen’s case, themselves. There are many more examples of Tory supporters and other right-wingers doing the same. This is not a problem that is restricted to the Left.

It is because it is easier to do so via the Internet.

There are ways to ensure the culprits can be found and made to give recompense for the distress they cause.

Rather than fling nonsense accusations at the Left, perhaps Mr Hart should be concentrating on that.
