A Conservative MP is to stand trial charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in 2008.

The 47-year-old appeared before Westminster magistrates via video-link on Thursday. Reporting restrictions on the case were lifted on Friday.

A Conservative MP has been branded “disgraceful” after coming to the defence of a colleague thrown out of the party after his conviction for a child sex offence.

Former minister Crispin Blunt, who chairs the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on global LGBT+ rights, denounced the conviction of Wakefield MP Imran Ahmad Khan as “an international scandal” which would have “dreadful” consequences for gay Muslims worldwide.

Former Tory MP Louise Mensch said: “He needs to be expelled from the Conservative Party for that statement. He’s just defended the convicted abuser of a 15-year-old boy, and he is thereby attacking the minor victim.”

A Tory MP found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy previously advised the Home Office on a research paper into child sexual exploitation.

The department confirmed Imran Ahmad Khan was on a panel that reviewed the work, prompted by high-profile cases of sexual grooming gangs in the UK.

Imran Ahmad Khan has said he has now resigned as Wakefield’s MP and will no longer be a parliamentarian from this Saturday, two and a half weeks after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy.

Crispin Blunt has described the child sex abuse conviction of Imran Ahmad Khan as a "serious miscarriage of justice", despite previously withdrawing similar comments.

Mr Blunt, Conservative MP for Reigate, told the BBC he believed the outgoing Wakefield MP did not get a fair trial.

57 Tory MPs are under investigation for sexual assault:Three ministers ‘on list of 56 MPs accused of sexual misconduct’ | Metro News

The latest one has not been named, and MP Michael Fabricant joked about the rape charge:Michael Fabricant condemned for ‘shameful’ joke about Tory MP accused of rape | The Independent

There is something seriously wrong with the Tory Party at the moment, they take nothing seriously. The UK economy is bottom of the G7 group, they are trying to dismantle the NIP and likely provoking a trade war (presumably because NI is the only part of the UK to have an economy that is recovering post-Covid), and attacking C4 and the BBC for spurious reasons.

I suspect it is because they have no policies, no way of addressing the damage Brexit is doing, so they are whipping up populist sentiment to keep us occupied with the "culture wars".

Tu Quoque ("You Do it Too!"; also, Two Wrongs Make a Right): A corrupt argument from ethos, the fallacy of defending a shaky or false standpoint or excusing one's own bad action by pointing out that one's opponent's acts, ideology or personal character are also open to question, or are perhaps even worse than one's own. E.g., "Sure, we may have tortured prisoners and killed kids with drones, but we don't cut off heads like they do!" Or, "You can't stand there and accuse me of corruption! You guys are all into politics and you know what we have to do to get reelected!"  Unusual, self-deprecating variants on this fallacy are the Ego / Nos Quoque Fallacies ("I / we do it too!"), minimizing or defending another's evil actions because I am / we are guilty of the same thing  or of even worse. E.g., In response to allegations that  Russian Premier Vladimir Putin is a "killer," American President Donald Trump (2/2017) told an interviewer, "There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country's so innocent?"  This fallacy is related to the Red Herring and to the Ad Hominem Argument

It is going to be a long road back to decency in public office in the UK:

On the eve of publication of the long-awaited Sue Gray report on Downing Street parties, the historian Peter Hennessy has described current British political standards as being a “bonfire of decencies”.  A system of government which ultimately rests on the willingness of “good chaps” to “do the decent thing” is going up in flames.

Democratic decay is quite difficult to reverse

The match which is lighting the fire is seeing that egregious misdemeanours at the very top of government can be publicly identified and evidenced but then go unpunished, while the offender-in-chief “moves on”. If the public’s desire for a blood sacrifice is required, some official or other can be offered up. The public seemingly understands the drill and “moves on” too. There is, after all, a cost of living crisis.

Though it seems petty and obsessive to go on about the details of Partygate, the issue matters (as does the wider conduct of the prime minister). Serious damage has been done to the British system of democratic government which we have long persuaded ourselves is a model for the world. And that system is a lot more precarious than we like to think. It runs on respect.

Man this a terrible situation, however a situation like this could easily occur in any country. The thing that seems very strange about all of this is not the fact that it happened, but that it took so many years from when the molestation in 2008 occurred, to the fact that he was allowed to run for a political party position and he was elected for position while facing charges for this crime. First I don’t understand how any political party could support someone  that was facing child molestation charges in the first place and then I can’t comprehend how people could vote for that individual until the legal charges were dropped in court which never happened.p

Then after everything that happened he only gets a sentence of 18 months, man this is all crazy from beginning to end  :td:
