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.
