Claire Perry on Trump

Written by Gerald Payne on .

Sirs  
I was surprised to see your article where you are effectively being a stenographer for Ms Perry - reprinting something she wrote to criticise Trumps victory without questioning her.

She is after all an MP for a party whose own leader was unelected by the people, whose government has a smaller percentage of the popular vote than Trump.

Maybe Trump is a misogynist, but is that worse than her party which intimidates immigrant women and detains families in the likes of Yarlswood Detention Centre, once overseen by Theresa May, as well as running a welfare system which has lead to an increase in suicide for desperate welfare claimants.

Her government is sabre rattling against Russia and is sending troops illegally into foreign countries. Maybe she needs to take the beam out of her eye first and this paper needs to question more.
