    Can't help thinking if a Tory MP had called a Labour MP scum in the House of Commons, there would have been a thread much sooner on NSC.

    I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!

      In 1948 Aneurin Bevan, architect of the NHS, described the Tory Party as being lower than vermin.

      I suppose the acceptability of an insult depends almost entirely on what its recipient has done.

      So if Angela Raynor had (to clutch an example out of the air) lobbied in favour of allowing the import of more meat from abused animals and a Tory MP called her scum then I would be full of understanding.

      Would you?

      My daughter, who has rarely discussed politics lost her shit over this children's food issue, citing MPs meals, expenses, 2nd homes etc etc. Normal people are appalled. Not seen much condemnation from our, let's say, right of centre brethren here who voted for the 'scum' . They rant about grooming gangs, and vulnerable young girls, but not about the Tories voting themselves pay rises but not helping vulnerable children who will go hungry. Guilt I guess.

      I put it down more to the fact that nobody is surprised, or even gives a toss, over what any of our MPs say anymore

      Respect, civil discussion and debate are sadly a thing of the past.

      You are entitled to be understanding, it is a free country after all, but personally i wouldnt be.
      I can think of no excuse for an MP to use the word scum in the House.
      Angela Raynor has let herself down a bit here, which is a shame because she is quite a good MP, even if idont agree with her politics.
      I am quite surprised you are defending her saying it in the Commons.
