Andrew Percy.

If you’re not aware of Tory MP Andrew Percy’s infantile response to a legitimate media inquiry by Evolve Politics, familiarise yourself here.

The quick version is that Theresa May has announced a housing policy remarkably familiar to one put forward by the Labour Party a few years ago, which Mr Percy described as “the sort of policy you might expect from Soviet Russia”.

Evolve Politics asked him whether he stood by his comments and he responded with insults.

So the news organisation has made a formal complaint to the Conservative Party:

Mr Percy was copied into the complaint notification email as a matter of courtesy. He replied anyway:

Mr Percy wrote: “Please don’t involve our office in your petty and childish email chain. This email address is for genuine constituents, not left wing blogs.”

Who do you think is being petty and childish, here?
