to many egos for that
Quite aside from Murphy being a Brexit supporter, he also just happens to come from a determinedly anti Corbyn area of London.
Whatever Murphy's motivation, as someone who seems to feel that attacking an MP is acceptable he should get to spend time avoiding picking up the soap from the floor in the shower.
Anyone else think a month inside for egging someone’s a bit strong?
No, it is entirely justified.
Justifying an attack, outside a Mosque, on the leader of the opposition by someone from a determinedly anti-Corbyn area of London doesn't really ring true.
However, ANY physical attack on ANY MP warrants a custodial sentence.
Yes considering what others do for less...
In isolation yeah but I suspect they want to deter people from attacks of this nature that next time could be something worse.
To be fair considering the last one was several bullets and stab wounds, understandable.
Did the guy who egged Prescott get a month in jail ? I know Prescott punched him
Have you seen Prescott’s face though?
The judge made an example of him, MP's are living in dangerous times, and that could easily have been a knife instead of an egg...
If anyone thinks a month inside for egging is gonna deter a nutcase like Thomas Mair, I think they’re pretty deluded tbh.
Well a month for an egg is quite severe, I'm sure if he'd got 5 years the indignation would have been real.
I suspect that the cowardly murder of Jo Cox by that far-right white supremacist Nazi has justifiably changed the attitude to attacks on MPs.
He punched Corbyn in the head with an egg in his hand, that's not what is conventionally referred as an egging.
The Independent: Labour deletes Passover tweet after mistakenly including loaf of bread image.
Wow, what a scandal Dolph.
I'm pretty sure your response would be totally different if it was the Tories doing something similar...
Posting a cartoon image of some bread to indicate food? No.
So you wouldn't cite a Tory post celebrating a Muslim festival using images of Pork as a sign of racism?
Muslims (and Jews) never eat pork.
Jews don't eat "leavened bread" for a week. Hardly racist is it?
