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.

“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.

 

...all words Eminem has never used I should add.

 

It should also be pointed out that millions of people around the world were listening to Eminem at that point, and not saying homophobic nonsense.

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.

 

odd, we're discussing an MP who overturned a safe Lib-dem seat...

 

and we could say the same thing about most seats in Britain, just replacing the word 'Labour' with 'Conservative' where applicable - 'safe seats' are not unique to sheffield.

Yes Exactly.

Hallam was famous for not voting for Labour until Nick Clegg came along.

That’s novel.

 

I’ve been told that South Yorkshire folk would vote for a donkey wearing a red rosette . . . and Hallam constituency did just that :hihi:

They did vote labour then, Clegg stood for the Lib Dems.

Hallam resident here. As I understand it there was a big swing to the Tories in the last election, but not big enough to get the Tory candidate in. It did however reduce the Lib Dem vote sufficiently to get Clegg out, the result was that Labour won. So basically Hallam voted Tory and got Labour.

Is 'constituency conmitments' a euphemism for being lazy and going to the pub. https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/sheffield-mp-jared-o-mara-fails-to-vote-on-universal-credit-in-parliament-1-9410830

 

Looking at the comments there - never answering the phone, doing nothing, not being contactable; is there a point at which he is legally held accountable?

 

There can't be many jobs where you do NOTHING and get away with it. It appears he's doing absolutely nothing - not even responding to constituents concerns.

 

Is this legal?

I do wonder if there are any more jobs like that where you can do nothing and get away with it?

 

Hang on hold my beer here's one!
