This, apparently, from CARE:

Today following his shock election victory in Glasgow East, John Mason MP said: ‘The HFE Bill was a key issue for some people – part of the package of today’s result.’

Meanwhile, Lord Alton of Liverpool said: "Not everyone who voted for John Mason in Glasgow East did so because of the HF and E Bill but, with a majority of just over 300, pro-life votes were the ones that made the difference. They were enough to get him elected. He was the only one of the candidates who said he would vote against the Bill when it comes back to the Commons in the autumn; the only one who said he would stand up for the unborn child. It only takes a few hundred voters in key seats to change the political complexion of a constituency. MPs and political leaders should remember that one and a half million British voters have sent in protest cards to Parliament stating that they will cast their votes at the next election for candidates who cast their votes in the defence of human life. They will be enough to determine the complexion of the next Parliament and the next Government."


Are any feminists voting SNP? Because they damn well ought not to.

Okay, though I don't have a source for this - it was sent to me as a quote from CARE email updates, but I have no proof. Mason is a pro-lifer, though.

Christ. They really are Fianna Fáil, aren't they? Populist, nationalist, economically left-wing but clueless, socially conservative. Here's the scary thing, though: Fianna Fáil are ferociously popular and completely indestructible. They'll be here after the apocalypse after Cher and the cockroaches have died out.

Hee! (not that the subject is funny but I typed 'the fuckers are turning into fianna fail' before deciding to go constructive instead.)

Any chance of organising a feminists won't vote for anti-choice MPs campaign?

Let's at least start a Facebook group: the new lazy arses campaign tool.
