Upskirting Bill blocked by errant MP.

Ok. Let's talk this through slowly:

Can you think of a reason why a man who objects to the PMB system and has described it as a 'pain in the neck' might bring so many PMBs that it clogs up the system and makes it unworkable?



This is simply incorrect. He's got himself elected to the procedures committee. You know, the committee responsible for recommending changes to parliamentary procedure that has consistently suggested reform to the PMB system, including repeated recommendations that only a single PMB from any MP can be debated on a given day.

It's almost as if he's worked extensively on reforming the system and has now decided to take direct action as his attempts at reform through the proper channels haven't worked.
He's was not on the last report on PMBs, published by the PPL, but this due to fact that he hadn't been elected to Committee at the time. It remains to be seen how he will attempt to inform any future reports on PMBs.

House of Commons - Private Members' bills - Procedure Committee

So it would be remiss to say he has "worked extensively" on reforming the system, that is mere supposition on your part.

However his historical actions in objecting to numerous PMBs, including the Turing Pardon, Circus Animals, and Police Animals, whilst gleefully promoting his own, to the tune of 47, 31 of those in one year, as well as working with his colleague to abuse the the PMBS system for his own ends, he and Peter Bone put forward 73 preventing others from bringing theirs forward. He also, along with Philip Davies, has a long history of filibustering.

And if we look at his actions yesterday, where he objected to the amendment brought by a Crossbench peer, yet was happy to have his own PMB the Voter's Registration Bill debated

Commons Private Members' Bills: 23 November 2018 - News from Parliament

His "so called" principles are nothing but a sham. He is happy to use and abuse the PMB syestem to his iwn ends, he is happy to have his own PMBs debated, but not others, where he uses the minutae of parliamentary procedure to have them dismissed or pushed to the back, which prevents them from properly being debated and scrutinised. Therefore I am more than happy to call him a hypocrite, because he certainly meets the criteria for one.

Again, do you really not understand why someone who opposes the PMB system would bring forward so many that they block the system? You're just being deliberately obtuse if you don't realise that trying to break the system is entirely compatible with opposing the system as a whole.
 
He is a loathsome creature. He objects to Private Member's Bills but regularly tables his own and supports those of his cronies.

Which is precisely what he did today

 
I think once again Mr Mercer has shown the straight path.


Dunno what Mr Chope's issue or cause is, but he is doing his party and Parliament no credit.

How many more small girls are going to be left bleeding and screaming in agony because of your action in blocking improvements in FGM legislation?

To say nothing of a lifetime of infections, infertility, urination problems and smelly unpleasantness.

If he doesn't like Private Members' Bills he could just not turn up for debates like this, the utter cockwomble.

He dislikes Private Members' Bills so much he has tabled about 31 in the last year.
 
He needs his Achilles’ tendons cut and dropped in the lion enclosure at longleat

Along with many of his chums of various political hues

Does his argument that he want's MP's to debate these matters "properly" and no go through unopposed hold any water?
Not when weighed against the evidence if his own actions. Nor do his claims stack up as in the specific instance of FGM as outlined in Lord Norton's blog post
 
I for one am pleased that MP's saw fit to pass a law that made it a criminal offence to let off an atomic bomb in the UK without authorisation in writing from the Home Secretary!

If he was consistent. But he’s not, he tables motions and supports his lizard mates so he can fuck off and die
