Wow, total scum. Extremely young children in a 51 second video but no clarification on what the ‘making’ of it means - made a copy by downloading or actually filmed it.
Poor India Knight (but more to the point poor India Knight’s teenage daughter who’s had to live with this scumbag)

A prison sentence is the least he'll deserve.

It sounds like India is sticking by him. confused

BringMeTea Tue 07-Jul-20 15:21:30

Yep, she does seem desperate to hang on to this specimen. All her hangers on and brownnosers are really going to have to work at how to spin this.

MrsGrindah Tue 07-Jul-20 15:51:29

Utterly revolting. There was a picture of her in The Times this weekend and she looked nothing like her byline. Guess it’s taking its toll but I’d feel a whole lot better about her if she left him

Mrskeats Tue 07-Jul-20 16:29:54

But India has a daughter under 18?
She won't have a choice.

Turnedouttoes Tue 07-Jul-20 16:33:16

Sorry I can’t feel sorry for India in the slightest. Look up Joyce’s record and all the other awful things he’s done while she’s stuck by him.

She’s also a terrible bully and threatened women on Twitter that she’d send him round to their house previously. Not a nice person at all

starryeyed19 Tue 07-Jul-20 16:38:21

Where have you seen things saying she's sticking with him?!

Mrskeats Tue 07-Jul-20 16:38:49

Totally agree turn
They always seemed to be a very unlikely couple to me.

Seems he’s running a “clicked on a span email” story. Hmmm.

Plenty of women stick by scumbags like this. Just because she's a journalist with her head up her arse and her groups of followers doesn't make her any less stupid.

He punched a friend of mine in the face in a bar in the House of Commons.

Awful man.

roarfeckingroar Tue 07-Jul-20 18:24:10

Has to be more to it than clicking on a spam email, surely?

southeastdweller Tue 07-Jul-20 18:43:39

I'm really surprised the story isn't being featured more in the media.

Mrskeats Tue 07-Jul-20 18:51:17

Is that the famous case *roar' or another one?And how long till this gets deleted I wonder?

roarfeckingroar Tue 07-Jul-20 19:02:54

@Mrskeats yeah the famous one. We worked in the HoC at the time. I wonder what else is lurking in that man's closet.

Mrskeats Tue 07-Jul-20 19:11:19

Blimey roar
Oh yes I think this is probably the tip of the iceberg (allegedly)

Decorhate Tue 07-Jul-20 19:25:53

The Daily Mail (sorry) reports that he admitted to having searched for indecent images of children while dealing with alcohol addiction. So not just “accidentally clicking on spam email”

You would have to have some major issues yourself to stick with someone like that. IMO

BringMeTea Fri 10-Jul-20 20:26:48

Oh that is sinister.

FizzAfterSix Fri 10-Jul-20 21:52:17

One of the images featured a 12 month old baby. It’s really dreadful. Saying it’s child porn minimises the horror, it’s the worst, most heinous type of child abuse and I’m surprised it’s not all over the newspapers.

southeastdweller Fri 10-Jul-20 22:45:27

At the time he was drinking heavily

As if that could make any of what he did even the slightest bit excusable or understandable.

I can't understand why this isn't getting reported more, it's such a disturbing and baffling case.

LizzieMacQueen Sat 08-Aug-20 09:20:30

I see he's been given a suspended sentence.

LizzieMacQueen Sat 08-Aug-20 09:22:53

I see there's another thread in feminism that's been updated.
