Prevention of Incitement to Sexual Crime and Violence

Prevention of Incitement to Sexual Crime and Violence

Date tabled: 01.02.2016

Primary sponsor: Tommy Sheppard

Sponsors: Deidre Brock, Anne McLaughlin, Kirsten Oswald, Joanna Cherry and Ian Blackford

Motion:

That this House strongly condemns what it understands is the organisation of sexist and hate-mongering meetings across the UK by so-called pick-up artist Roosh V; believes that these meetings are misogynistic and that such behaviour is not tolerable in modern day society; affirms that there is never an argument to advocate rape; further believes that, while women keep being taught to avoid sexual assault, not enough is done to educate those men who may become predators; welcomes the work of police forces across the UK, including Police Scotland, to raise awareness of sexual crime; considers that sexual and violent speeches are clear acts of incitement that must not be tolerated by the law; and calls for action to be taken.

Also, while the instant nature of social media is useful it is limited in a situation li...

Under the new Prime Minister, the UK’s headlong dash towards the No Deal Brexit cliff edge has accelerated. Johnson makes demands he knows the European Union cannot accept. He demands the removal of the Backstop. The Backstop was designed to protect the Good Friday Agreement and thus peace in Northern Ireland and is, let’s not forget, an international treaty which is overwhelmingly supported by th...

First, shadow chancellor John McDonnell states that a Westminster Labour government wouldn’t block a request from the Scottish Parliament to hold an independence referendum. He says it twice just in case anyone thinks the first time was a mistake. And this week Jeremy Corbyn says it again to be sure.Now, in one sense, it’s an unremarkable statement...
