MP: Give 13-year-olds ex­plicit ad­vice about heavy pet­ting

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

♦ A Labour MP em­broiled in a race row also sug­gested that 13-year-olds be given “ex­plicit man­u­als on heavy pet­ting”, it has emerged.

Con­ser­va­tive MPS have called for Emma Dent Coad to be sus­pended by her party af­ter she made “racist” remarks about Tory ac­tivist Shaun Bai­ley.

Ms Dent Coad apol­o­gised af­ter she re­ferred to Mr Bai­ley as a “to­ken ghetto boy” in a blog in 2010, say­ing the com­ments were taken the wrong way. But yes­ter­day Mr Bai­ley branded her mea culpa “cow­ardly” and MPS called on Jeremy Cor­byn to sus­pend her af­ter it emerged Ms Dent Coad also drew a Con­ser­va­tive hang­ing from a tree and wrote a let­ter to a news­pa­per stat­ing that 13-year-olds should be taught about “the de­lights of pro­longed snogs”.

A spokesman for Mr Cor­byn said last night: “Jeremy is op­posed to all of­fen­sive lan­guage and be­lieves we should treat each other with re­spect. Emma Dent Coad has rightly apol­o­gised to Shaun Bai­ley for her use of lan­guage.”
