Jared Omara MP ..

We understand that this is an emotive subject, and discussing the facts is totally fine.
Posting insults is not.
Jared is local to us, and could well be a member of the forum, we dont allow name calling and insults on other threads and they arent acceptable on this one either.

good for him, i hope it wasn't too rowdy and noisy for him though (or does that only apply to PMQ's?)

Taking Mr O'Mara out of the equation, what do you mean by Labour should never have won Hallam in the first place? Is it a 'Labour no go area'? I know there's some affluent parts of the ward and it's traditionally been a Conservative stronghold till 2000s but don't get why it shouldn't vote Labour.

 

It is one of the most affluent areas in the country and a lot of people here voting Labour were doing so because voting Tory (and now Lib Dem) is unfashionable. Many were protesting against Clegg too. They are not Labour *policy* supporters in the main. The Labour vote is also bumped up by the constituency having some pockets of students, though most are actually in Sheffield Central. The Lib Dems also suffered from Tory voters who lent Clegg their vote in 2015 switching back to the Tories in 2017.

Anyone still worried about Parliament activity, your MP voted in last nights Brexit deal and the amendment tabled before it, voting against both.

And he has no confidence in Theresa may's government...

I see Jared abstained in all the votes last night......the first opportunity for MPs to demonstrate how they would like to get us out of the current mess. Was it too noisy for him, or was he just not there? Meanwhile he continues to pocket his salary to represent the voters of Hallam.

Well at least he isn't as bad as MP Fiona Onasanya, despite spending time in prison she shamelessly continues to show her face in Westminster.

With 8 choices and all that uproar the poor lad clearly decided it was all too much. Down in Peterborough the local populace seems to have decided it's all too much with their MP and are about to vote to recall her. If 10% of the electorate were to do that in Hallam an election could  be held to elect someone better.

 

It seems none of the main parties want to be seen to start that ball rolling, probably dreading the precedent it may create - although Peterborough are now setting out to do that.

 

Here's how it's done; https://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/184324/Recall-Act-Factsheet.pdf

Doesn't the petition need to be initiated by the speaker of the house though?

This has been looked into ;) 

There are quite strict criteria under which this could be set in motion and unfortunately those haven't been met. Yet.

His voting record - or lack of voting record - is utterly appalling.  Is any other constituency so poorly served by such a waste of space as an MP?  

 

This is what you get when you vote blindly for a party, without considering the representative.

He'll be getting well advised on how to stay just on the right side of that criteria.

How can you say that?

 

They are both still serving MPs and are both free of any party whip but she turned up and voted on the various proposals yesterday in line with her constituents wishes.

 

He didn't.

Is it clear if he was in the House TCH?   Or did he just not bother to show up?

 

I'm not sure which is worse to be honest - turning up and abstaining when you have no whip, or not being bothered to even attend.
