Welsh Labour MP – and Starmerite – suspended for ‘unacceptable behaviour’

Accused: Geraint Davies.

Labour MP Geraint Davies has been suspended from the party after claims of “completely unacceptable behaviour”.

According to news website Politico, he is accused of subjecting younger colleagues to unwanted sexual attention.

Here‘s the BBC:

Politico, which first reported the allegations, said it had spoken to more than 20 people who worked with Mr Davies in Parliament, including serving MPs and current and former Labour Party staff.

The news site said five women had claimed Mr Davies had subjected them to unwanted sexual attention, both physical and verbal.

The allegations, which go back at least five years, include excessive drinking, as well as sexual comments and unwanted touching of younger women, according to the website.

Commentators on the social media have recalled that Davies previously made headlines for referring to a proposal for women-only carriages on trains as “apartheid”:

They have also said that Davies is a supporter of current Labour leader Keir Starmer, and campaigned against former leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The question they ask now is simple:

Will Starmer give his supporter equal treatment to that he gave Mr Corbyn and those who have supported him?

    It’s a STRETCH to say that opposing women’s only carriages makes you ‘an opponent of women’s safety.’ I don’t think women should have to go into a women’s only carriage to feel safe either, I would rather we focussed on ending harassment rather than accommodating for it.

      It’s a good point. I think the person who raised that issue was suggesting that opposing a “safe space” doesn’t look good.
