Our thanks to Douglas for this. He writes:
Given the relatively low proportion of women MPs (as we are often told), it seems notable that the UK could be heading towards kicking out two female MPs for one male MP.
Claudia Webbe MP was convicted of a campaign of harassment against a friend of her partner following a trial at Westminster Magistrates’ Court last week. She is claiming her innocence and says she will appeal.
She was suspended from the Labour Party last year and they have issued a statement saying she should resign.
Convicting Webbe, Chief Magistrate Paul Goldspring told her last week: “I do not find the defendant to be cogent, compelling and truthful in all aspects of her evidence. Some of the things she said I believe were made up on the spur of the moment.”
He added: “In short, I find Ms Webbe to be vague, incoherent and at times illogical… and ultimately I find her to be untruthful.”
What a refreshing change it is to see a member of the judiciary strap on a pair when dealing with a female criminal.
