Jared Omara MP ..

nikki-red

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.

Yes I am. I once authored a scientific paper on ‘Autism: how to use it justify not doing my £70000 a year job, while managing its symptoms in shouty nightclubs and bars.’

 

Sadly only one person read it. In Hallam.

 

Who was that single reader? I first thought you might mean Jared but he doesn't have either his home or office in Hallam so it must be someone else.

A genuine question, to those that don't think he's a joke: why do you think that?

 

I'm struggling to see anything he's done or said that remotely commands respect. of any sort. I especially dislike him using an illness to explain away any criticism of him, as if all the other MPs who have issues of some sort don't matter.

 

He seems to have done nothing whatsoever - other than made offensive comments.

 

I'm really interested as to why anyone, regardless of their political leanings, would have any liking for him.....

There’s a difference between liking someone - or not agreeing with someone calling someone else a fat lazy blob faking mental illness isn’t there?

 

Remember it was abusive posts that Jared O’Mara got in trouble for in the first place - kinda ironic that now people think it’s ok to do it after all.

Surely the candidates are selected by the political parties not the electorate. The Local labour party clearly failed to do any due diligence in Omara's case.

 

i suspect they thought they knew what they were doing.

 

at what seemed like the peak of the anti-Libdem backlash, Oliver Coppard didn't win the Hallam seat.

 

Coppard would be a great MP; he's intelligent, hard working, he's a genuinely good person, he listens, he's involved with local issues. etc, etc.

 

Nick Clegg still won, Coppard has moved onto better things. Labour used up a strong card putting him forward for election

 

fast forward a few years, another General Election. what would be the point in playing another strong card against Nick Clegg?

 

So they played the O'Mara card. obviously he wasn't going to win, but that's ok, you need to pick your battles.

 

whoops, he won...

Mr Omara MP has autism. Are there any other MP's with the same condition, or does autism mean that been an MP is a step too far. Does Westminster have a duty of care over its occupants when they are there.

I didn’t see where he blames Eminem in the article

Can you quote it please?

“I used homophobic words, but they were the words of the time; they were on the Eminem record that I listened to at the time.” He added that the comments were part of an attempt by him to “fit in and not get bullied.”

 

this apparently influenced his language in using the term "fudge packers, poofters and the term "the marmite motorway to describe anal sex.

 

Now im no lyricist but a quick scan of Eminem's Curtain call album from 2002 doesn't have any of those words or phrases in it.

The point was metaphorical, not literal.

And this is the world we live in, perfectly typified by O'Mara. A world in which it's never our fault . . it's a condition, or it's other people, or it's society.

 

He would get a lot more respect if he just said: "You know what guys. Let's be honest, I never expected to be elected. I'm not cut out for it. I'm a bit lazy or shy or whatever, and can't really be arsed going to meetings. It's not my thing."

 

Instead, it has to be autism or he has to blame his homophobia on a bloody rapper. It's craven hypocrisy.

Hope the people of Hallam are not stupid enough to vote him in again, he's just not good enough to be an MP - and that's putting it mildly.

He had the same look on his face when he won as did Boris Johnson and Michael Gove the year before. "Whoops... That wasn't meant to happen"

Not a chance in hell, now he's an Independent.

 

Let's be honest. If you dressed a monkey in a nun's habit and stuck it on a unicycle, Sheffield would vote for it so long as it said 'Labour Party' on the ballot paper.
