All you need to know about the Tory MP who blocked upskirting becoming illegal

Plans to make upskirting a criminal offence have been blocked by a single Conservative MP (with the help of one of his Conservative colleagues).

The upskirting bill was blocked at the last minute by Christopher Chope after being intentionally pushed back by Philip Davies filibustering. As it was blocked, another MP yelled Shame!. Shame indeed. There arent enough walls to kick.

Christopher Chope (the MP that objected) also objected to the Alan Turing Pardon and the Hillsborough debate. https://t.co/JR0jr5ofhu

Christopher Chope has blocked the upskirting laws at the last minute. An unquestionable act of misogyny. How could anyone hate women so much that they would want it to be legal to take pictures of her genitals without her consent?

I can only assume we now know what Sir Christopher Chopes main hobby is. I think we should name it Choping in honour of him https://t.co/o8yaVIZDlu

Who me? Oh I'm just off to take hundreds of pictures of Christopher Chope's tiny weasel dick with a spy camera & complete impunity to see how he fucking well likes it the utter c*nt.

I am unspeakably angry. If you feel the same, please email Christopher Chope [email protected] and ask him why he thinks men should be allowed to photograph women's genitals without their consent.

I'm sure Christopher Chope MP won't mind people knowing he exercised his democratic right and objected to a bill that protects women from sexual assault by cowardly perverts. https://t.co/mfQ4OJtEwe

Sir Christopher Chope has derailed the parliamentary bill to criminalise up-skirting, and quite right too, because its a slippery slope and the next thing you know the ladies will be drinking beer and demanding the vote and whatnot.

A bill to make upskirting an illegal offence was blocked by a Tory MP. Taking a picture/video up a womans skirt… without consent. It takes one objection to stop a bill getting a second reading. Why would anyone NOT want this criminalised? Christopher Chope best explain himself pic.twitter.com/osbKLv9UyX

If you bump into MP Christopher Chope feel free to take photos of him without his consent, maybe then he could begin to imagine what's its like to be violated by a camera up your skirt. To save you the google, his email address is [email protected]

Trying to work out if financially I can support myself by taking the next two months up to spend upskirting Christopher Chopes trouser legs
