Anti-domestic violence bill passes, despite anti-feminist MP's attempt to block it

Post by sassy on Fri Dec 16, 2016 8:01 pm

The bill will now be sent to committee stage for further consideration, bringing it one step closer to becoming law

MPs have voted to pass a bill to improve domestic violence support services and provision in the UK.

The bill has now passed its second reading and will be sent to committee for further consideration, before it can receive a third reading by MPs and then become law.

MPs backed the bill by 135 votes for, and just 2 against.

During the vote in parliament earlier today, anti-feminism MP Philip Davies attempted to block the bill by speaking for over an hour against it. Campaigners said that while he spoke, survivors of domestic violence who were present in the gallery above the chamber, stood up and turned their backs in protest. MP Eilidh Whiteford, who introduced the bill, accused Mr Davies of acting "like a panto villain".

Mr Davies, Conservative MP for Shipley, West Yorkshire, said the bill was too focused on women's rights and did not do enough to address men's rights. He said the bill was therefore "sexist" and "discriminatory" against men. He was one of just two MPs who voted against the bill. The second was David Nuttall, Conservative MP for Bury North.

While Mr Davies spoke to criticise the bill, survivors of domestic violence who were watching in the gallery above stood up and turned their backs to him in protest.

An open letter published by The Independent prior to the vote, was signed by UN Women's Ambassador Emma Watson, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron and Green Party leader Caroline Lucas.

The private members bill was brought by SNP MP Eilidh Whiteford and called on the Government to commit to a timetable of ratifying the Istanbul Convention, an international treaty which has been described as the "gold standard" of legislation for gender-based violence. The Government agreed to ratify the Convention in 2012, but has failed to do so in the intervening four years.

MPs are trying to force the Government to commit to fully ratifying and implementing it.

Ratifying the Convention would mean support for domestic violence victims would be more robust. Survivors of abuse would be legally entitled to specialist support services such as refuges, counselling, and a 24-hour helpline for support. Age-appropriate education would also be implemented in schools to help pupils spot signs of abuse and seek help.

Gender-based violence can include female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and domestic or sexual abuse, as well as physical, emotional or sexual violence or harm. While it primarily affects women and girls, it can also affect men, boys and non-binary people. On average, two women are killed by their current or former partner in England and Wales every week.

It is estimated that 7.7 per cent of all women and 4.4 per cent of all men suffer from domestic violence at some point in their lives.

Wonder what this disgusting little weasel is trying to cover up in his own life?   The bill is for ALL domestic abuse victims, men, women and children.

That is part of the Bill, they will have to be provided.

At the moment there are only 78 safe places for abused men in the UK, that's just not right. http://new.mankind.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Refuges-for-Male-Victims-of-Domestic-Abuse-Briefing-July-2016.pdf

Having said that, its about time this disgusting practice of talking down (filibustering) a bill is stopped.
Regardless of my sour view of the principles as applied IN PRACTICE to men on the receiving end, this bill should sail through

Agreed, filibustering should be outlawed.

Women should not be battered or really abused IMHO.

How the hell can a woman batter a geeza?

A charter for snowflakes and softiz is something we do not need, it MUST deal with the real serious probs.


So you think LF is a snowflake and/or a softiz?   He's made no secret of the fact he was abused.  You are not only disgusting but ignorant in the extreme.

Never heard a whisper about LF or want to, things like that anger me..
You always have to mention someone else in your posts, you are so insecure.
You are, as usual, trying to make a point personal, give up, you have been rumbuld, amongst other thingz.


Why don't you fuck right off you disgusting slimeball.   Many of us have had the discussion with LF and he, by his post above, acknowledges that.   Now stick your head down the loo and pull the handle and end up in the correct place for shit.

Last I heard he had been on his feet talking for over an hour. Even the Tories started to turn away from him.

He failed anyway and rightly so.

I hope the women in his constituency tell him to get stuffed at the next election.
