An MP that is quite local to me has been prosecuted for driving offences. He crashed his car a few weeks back and left the scene. He went to court and we cleared of dangerous driving, but found guilty of leaving a vehicle in a dangerous place and leaving the scene of an accident.
He was rightly prosecuted, but the news seems to place more importance in the witness statement.
Residents Adrian Watson and Natalie Webb were at a birthday party, when they heard a “very loud bang, significantly louder than a domestic firework” on the street at about 01:00 GMT.
Mr Watson said he looked inside the car and saw “a white male wearing a white long-sleeve top which was tight to the body, a black leather PVC mini-skirt, tights, dark shoes with a high heel and a pearl necklace”.
The story also goes on to say that when the police entered the MPs house, he was wearing make up and there was a wig.
Since when has what someone was wearing been the main facts in a news report? With trans right being eroded, and transphobia being on the rise, this does nothing to help!
I’m guessing that the MP left the scene because of the way he was dressed. He has since came out as trans, but prefers the he/him pronoun. I suspect that he is really, like me, a crossdresser.
The original BBC headline was MP was Wearing Black Miniskirt and heels….. Why is this news? How is this allowed? If he had been in a mens suit, would the news be saying what he was wearing? Would the police report that when they went into his house, he was smoking a cigar and wearing trousers?????
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like this MP, but to see him treated like this seriously annoys me.
What he was wearing played no part in the accident, and as such is NOT NEWS!!!!!!!!
I have been stopped by the police twice whilst dressed. Once in a VOSA/DVLA road block, and once on a routine check. On both occasion I had to leave my vehicle. I was nervous as hell. I’m not an MP. If I had been, I would have been s***ing myself.
I genuinely am seriously annoyed at how the news was about what he was wearing!
