Yesterday saw family values Tory and serial fibber Nadine Dorries introduce her “Sex Education (Required Content)” bill as a Ten Minute Rule motion. The proposal would legislate for the mandatory teaching of abstinence to 13-16 year old girls (but not boys).

Providing comic relief to the¬†scaremongering and straight out lies deployed by Dorries in support of the bill (and summarily demolished over at Liberal Conspiracy) was an intervention by Labour’s Chris Bryant.¬†As Dorris complained of “sex magazines edging out the serious stuff” he interjected:

Nadine Dorries (Mid Bedfordshire) (Con): In fact, in some newsagents now there are more sex magazines available than any other kind of magazine.

Chris Bryant (Rhondda) (Lab): Well, stop going to those shops then.

Photos of Dorries visiting such premises “for research” will be gratefully received.
