Good news for people who love bad news. Jared O’Mara, a former member of the Labour Women and Equalities select committee, has been reinstated as a Labour MP. He had the whip removed in October over a series of online posts and claims he verbally abused a woman – from his time before becoming an MP.
However, an investigation by the Labour Party yesterday ruled the Sheffield MP should have the party whip restored – and a formal warning for good measure.
For those who need a refresher, here are a few facts about the newly reinstated Labour MP for Sheffield Hallam:
Jared on Angelina
He favourably compared a ‘shredtastic’ Sheffield band to receiving fellatio from Angelina Jolie.
‘I wish I were a misogynist’ – a tune by O’Mara’s band
A tasteful tune from his band, the Dirty Rotten Troubadours:’I wish I were a misogynist
I’d put her in her place
I wish I were a misogynist
I’d smash her in her face. Sing along!
He requested an an orgy with Girls Aloud – on one condition‘
Girls Aloud – I advise you to sack Sarah and the remaining four members (Nicola, Cheryl, Nadine and Kimberley) come and have an orgy with me.’Good luck with that.
He spoke of the ‘Marmite motorway’ in relation to the gay community:
‘Just cos he writes about gayness… doesn’t mean he drives up the Marmite motorway, or…allows someone else to drive up his. And just because I use euphamisms [sic] for anal love that can be interpreted as being derogotory [sic]…DOES NOT mean I’m homophobic.’In other comments, he referred to ‘fudge packing’ and ‘poofters’.
