Unless you have been locked in a cave for the last few days you could not have missed the massive scandal of alleged child sex abuse involving Jimmy Saville that is engulfing the BBC, What i have read over the last few days has turned my stomach
But it did seem that one person missed the news of this, The man responsible for getting Murdoch to close down the NOTW over phone-hacking, Tom Watson MP, I expected him to be all over the media demanding answers of who knew what, when they knew and ask them why nothing was done! But nothing!
But Tom Watson did pop up to make a comment to the Huff post on Andrew Mitchell
Lets have a look at the PPS to the Shadow attorney general Karl Turner MP, at the beginning of September he tweeted this
If saying "fucking pleb" is bad then tweeting "Tories , bastard , scum" is no better?
But this is not an isolated incident, just over a week later
You have to remember that an MPs duties is to serve all voters and not just the ones that voted for him.
We have seen in the two examples that Mr Turner has problems dealing with people that he does not agree with and that when challenged by a young lady he resorts to cheap shots about heather she fancies him.
Mr Turner is also PPS to the Shadow attorney general and we all know that all must be seen equal under the law, If Mr Turner reacts like this when challenged on twitter is he the right person to be a PPS to someone whos work is legal and sensitive matters?
So, here we have two examples of hypocrisy, Tom Watson going after Murdoch outlets for phone hacking yet ignoring a more serious cover up (in my eyes) of child sex abuse allegations at the BBC and then we have Mr Karl Turner who moans about Andrew Mitchell yet does something just as bad himself!
Hypocrisy? You bet!
