Barroness Jenkin drops the C-Bomb to illustrate abuse received by politicians
WARNING: Strong Language, including C-Bomb below!
Jenkin warned more squeamish members of the unelected house to block their ears, due to the “unparliamentary language”.
The quote shouted by a young mother to a Tory Politician “Fucking Tory Cunt”.
This author remembers abuse received whilst canvassing with UKIP in 2015..
“If it’s UKIP, you can FUCK OFF!” cried one angry resident..
Baroness Jenkin has since highlighted on Twitter the abuse, further illustrating the point.
No further comment needed here. Point made. https://t.co/11CwqnIVal

The Baroness said “We should respect all who stand for public office from whatever party and let arguments win not personal abuse.
“Public dislike it and puts off good candidates”
