Young Lily (Woman’s Officer) seems to be going out of their way to rile up and insult women. I can only think either Lily is trolling for laughs or is on a little power trip. I’d love to know what MPs reallty think of their young controversial protege. How far is Labour willing to support Lily?

I thought she was taking the Mikey last time she gave an interview on channel 4. She can't string a decent sentence together. Infuriating!!

I suspect you're right. They know they're winding people up and think it's funny.

It's a bit juvenile but what can you do? Until the Labour Party steps in or they're voted out next time, they seem to have free reign.

Sadly, no.

It’s just such a bizarre stance for a woman’s officer to take. You might think Lily almost seems to dislike women.

Madigan is now actually targetting a fellow Labour MP - saying they are going to put leaflets thoughout the constituency so they don't get elected. Are Labour even aware of this, i wonder? How far is this going to be allowed to go?

I tweeted lily asking what they were planning to do in the coming weeks for the rights of women.
Lily blocked me and deleted my tweet...

Cannot bear this individual.

It's all about them.

I feel sorry for Lily. A few years ago they would probably identify as an effeminate gay man with a love of Harry Potter. Now people are being pushed into thinking they are the wrong sex on account of the feels.
I don't think this is going to end well and hope lily has some support in real life.

I would like to think they are. They are welcome to carry on because their ridiculous antics and blatant misogyny are peak-transing more and more people. Carry on Lily.

NannyOggsKnickers Mon 19-Feb-18 15:54:14

I don’t feel sorry for Lily. They are doing a lot of damage to both women and the main stream trans community.

Lily is only interested in Lily. It is the attention not actually achieving anything for anyone but themselves. The level of self obssession is off the scale, even for someone looking to go into politics.

The Labour Party are a joke for not stepping in and putting an end to this shit show.

Lily Madigan is odious - her Twitter is like a car crash (and I can stop watching blushconfused).

She really dislikes women that much is obvious and i do hope that she is a troll for the Tories to discredit labour but I doubt it. Her narcissism is astonishing.

GrimDamnFanjo Excellent post.

Members who campaign against the official candidate are generally expelled from the party.

Wobbleslikeaweeble Mon 19-Feb-18 16:02:05

I don’t really blamy Madigan who is very young and obviously has a lot of issue to deal with. This is on Labour and those who foolishly put them in this position and egged them on. If it goes bad - terfs (women) will be blamed though - not the party.

A few years ago they would probably identify as an effeminate gay man with a love of Harry Potter.

A few years ago he WAS an effeminate man with a love of Harry Potter, but was subscribed to 'how to pick up women' type screencasts.

Anyhow - yesterday's threats against women...what a charmer.

TheButterflyOfTheStorms Mon 19-Feb-18 16:15:31

Lily will have to live, publically, with the consequences of this train crash for the rest of their life.

I spouted a lot of utter drivel at that age but no one elected me to a sensitive role and gave me a platform to spread the drivel nationally. And I certainly didn't get to meet any party leaders.

I don't feel sorry for someone who is clearly a misogynist. I do think people should get the chance to rethink their idiocy before anyone lets it out of the box.

Madigan is alienating droves of people

Yup. Crack on I say.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 19-Feb-18 16:48:06

Madigan is at best, extremely emotionally immature. At worst, yes a troll.

GardenGeek Mon 19-Feb-18 16:58:52

Yep and as a mid-20s floating voter this makes me proud to have voted for tory for the first time last year. It wasn't even to do with this. Deep down I didn't know what Labour stood for, they seemed disingenuous.

At the time it was difficult - all my FB were all voting Labour, all of MN appeared to voting Labour, my DP was voting Labour.

It was a tough decision and I was ready to accept I made a bad choice. But its this constant drip drip of crap that makes me certain that it was the best choice for women.

Imagine what it would be like if Corbyn was in power now shock
Fuck that! Or the Lib dems, Or the Greens. God help us their is no choice now in politics.

Feel free to thank me for voting tory haha would make a nice change grin

The attached screenshot shows the MRA attitude Lily/Liam had a few years ago. Apparently, not allowing men to participate in Race For Life is tantamount to racism. Was he trolling then? Or is this just a man's sense of entitlement in action?

UpstartCrow Mon 19-Feb-18 17:04:50

GardenGeek It was the Tories started all this, Maria Miller and Justine Greening are the public face of the Women and Equalities committee, and are the party that broke The Equality Act.

No one will thank you.
Especially not after they realise that the Tories stopped us keeping EU human rights legislation on the grounds that we don't need it, because we have...The Equality Act.

She’s either so thick she doesn’t realise that the fact no men run encourages women to run who otherwise wouldn’t do so. So more money is raised for cancer research.

Or she doesn’t give a shit and believes her own validation is more important than money for research into breast cancer.

I’d say it’s 50/50 as to which one.

It’s “When is it International Men’s Day?” all over again.
