Last week, Labour managed to surprise for a change with the news that Jared O’Mara was to have the whip restored. The MP for Sheffield Hallam had been suspended over a series of misogynistic posts he had made prior to becoming an MP.
Others complained that even when he had the whip he had failed to achieve much – never getting round to doing his maiden speech in the Commons. So, Mr S was intrigued to learn that O’Mara is now preparing to do just this – speak in the Commons. In an interview with ITV’s Joe Pike, O’Mara says he will make his maiden speech late this month – after 13 months of being an MP.
Popcorn at the ready.
