I know myself to be quite naive where politics is concerned, although I am trying to learn as much as I can, but I was shocked over the allegations made about Labour MP Kelvin Hopkins, by a young Blairite member, known as Ava.
From everything I’ve read, Kelvin has a stirling reputation, and everyone was shocked when the accusations were made, as they seem totally against everything known about the man and the way he has always behaved.

A lot of people in the public eye – particularly journalists and politicians – seem to be afraid to say this at the moment for fear it could damage their career or their party.

It would be extremely naive indeed to think there aren’t people cynical enough in politics to use the current appalling sex scandals engulfing Westminster for their own nefarious political ends.
