Not only were most of the UKIP MEPs present; they were also accompanied by young women in fairly flimsy purple dresses.And what of it? Maybe it was very hot. Does she now presume to tell other women what to wear? Today she goes one step further and writes a blogpost about the dangers of the London Olympics leading to a rise in prostitution. It's a fair point, but rather undermined by this assertion...
Over a million construction workers are set to work on the site over the next three years, when added together with spectators and athletes could a fuel a sex trade time bomb.
A million? Where on earth has she plucked that figure of one million from? She needs to knock at least two noughts off, for I am told the true figure is 10,000. If you are going to raise an issue like prostitution, at least use figures which bear some resemblence to the truth. I have no idea what proportion of men use prostitutes, but let's say it is 1%. One per cent of 10,000 is somewhat less of a problem than 1% of a million.
PS: Useless political fact of the day: Mary Honeyball stood as Labour candidate in Norwich North in 1987. This was the high watermark year for Conservatives in that constituency, which we won by more than 7,200 votes. I was working for the then Tory MP for Norwich North, Patrick Thompson, at the time.
