MP Kerry McCarthy's Twitter rant against 'lager drinking oaf' on train
Since the expenses scandal, numerous MPs have complained they no longer automatically get to travel first class on trains – but few have expressed their discomfort in as colourful language as Kerry McCarthy.
The Labour MP for Bristol East yesterday branded a fellow passenger a “lager drinking oaf” and suggested he should “have been killed before he could breed”.
The MP made the comments on micro-blogging website Twitter. She was appointed ‘Twitter Tsar’ for the Labour Party in 2009, but famously put her foot in her mouth and received a police caution in 2010 for illegally revealing election results online before polls closed.
Her Twitter rant said the man was playing techno music “out loud” and wearing a T-shirt with an obscene message on it. She later said the breeding comments were “obviously flippant”.
