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.

You can only start a recall petition if they've actually done something wrong, for example being convicted of a crime but serving less than a year inside.

 

Being generally crap and/or not a very nice person isn't grounds for a recall petition.

He confirmed that he openly lied to his constituents about the extent of his illness.There seems to be very little in the way that he suffered from such illness prior to being elected.If that was the case I would suggest that there is a case against him for taking on a position not giving the extent of his disabilities knowing full well that he would be able to discharge his duties.

This all came about  just a few months of him taking the position when it was disclosed about comments that he had made in another lifetime.He stated that it was due to the company that he kept and  being at a time when it was more acceptable making such mysogenistic comments. Now he maintains that he disclosed to a member of staff that he loved her. But now says this was due to being in a bad place.Yet again he promises to make apologies to her and her family and yet again his apologies  to his constituents.As per usual there is a reason or excuse  for his actions which he was willing to share with everyone. I am sure that if he has done nothing illegal ,there has to be capability  for undertaking his duties which could be persued.Had he undertook this form of action within a local company ,I am sure that his employment would not have lasted 6 months. and quite rightly so.

But currently that's not grounds for a recall petition. Nor should it be as a general rule.

 

However, it's a great shame (to put it very mildly) that his nearest and dearest haven't got him to see that for the good of his long term health he should step down now. His constituents needs are clearly not a rational concern of his.

 

Unfortunately the nature of the type of illness he seems to have means he won't let go. Prising him out will be incredibly difficult if not impossible before a general election.

 

I hope he sees the sense in resigning  for his own sake, and very soon. He's still young enough to recover from this, but the longer it goes on the harder it will get.

Actually he gets £77,379 a year, not quite £80k, but very close.

   

I'm sure it's not in any way a consideration (?), but if he loses the seat in a general election he's entitled to the equivalent of severance pay, and for his staff. Like most things to do with expenses at Westminster it's a bit opaque. It doesn't look likely to be a fortune.

 

From Wikipedia;

Resettlement Grant

The Resettlement Grant motherhood is the name given to the MPs' severance pay package. It may be claimed to help former MPs with the costs of adjusting to life outside parliament. It is payable to any Member who ceases to be an MP at a general election. The amount is based on age and length of service, and varies between 50% and 100% of the annual salary payable to a Member of Parliament at the time of the dissolution.[2]

In the UK the first £30,000 of severance pay is tax-free. As stated above, the amount retiring MPs, or those who lose their seats receive, depends on how old they are and how long they have served in the House. For example, an MP who stays in office for one term (say 5 years) and then leaves office will currently receive tax-free severance pay of 50% of their current salary, or £32,383 at current rates – equivalent to an annual salary increment of over £12,000 at current tax rates and pay scales.[25]

For the 2010–2015 Parliament, only MPs defeated in their attempt to be re-elected will get one month’s salary for each year served, up to a maximum of six months or over £33,000. From the start of the 2015 Parliament, it will be replaced by a "Loss of Office Payment", at double the statutory redundancy payment. "For the 'average' MP, who leaves office with 11 years' service, this may lead to a payment of around £14,850."[26]

Winding-up Allowance

There is also up to £42,000 on offer to pay for winding up staff contracts and office rent.[27] An allowance of up to one third of the annual Office Costs Allowance was paid for the reimbursement of the cost of any work on parliamentary business undertaken on behalf of a deceased, defeated or retiring member after the date of cessation of membership. On 5 July 2001 the House agreed to change the allowance to one third of the sum of the staffing provision and Incidental Expenses Allowance in force at the time of cessation of membership.[28]

Wow,  no wonder he's sticking around, its like he's won the lottery.

Its too late now, but it might have been helpful to Mr O'Mara to speak to the two other MPs who have similar disabilities.  Regardless of their political stance, (both MPs with cerebral palsy are Tories), they might have been able to offer some support and advice about coping with the job.  

 

Paul Maynard not only has CP, he also has a speech impediment and epilepsy, and has been re-elected.

It seems it doesn't matter who is or was the MP for Hallam, it's the taxpayers & constituents who both out. 

 

You've got the present incumbent 'stealing' money for doing next to nothing, while the i newspaper is reporting today that Nick Clegg claimed nearly £113,000 in the year 2018-19 for expenses for public duties (?) from the 'The Public Cost Allowance', which was set up to assist former prime ministers who are still active in public life(?).  Unusually, Clegg gets to claim this as a former Dep. Prime Minister? 

 

And all the while Clegg has been claiming this, he also spent 5 months employed a a vice president of Facebook & receiving a substantial salary.

It seems he's applying for an office for profit under the crown when parliament reassembles.
