Jeremy Corbyn branded 'weak' over refusal to purge Jared O'Mara

Offensive comments previously made by Jared O'Mara have come to light
"It would be no great loss to the music world if he was sodomised with his own piano and subsequently died of a sore a***. In fact, it would be quite funny."
Homosexuals are “fudge packers” who “drive up the Marmite motorway” and those who are gay are “bitter and resentful about being homosexual."
​"Girls Aloud - I advise you to sack Sarah and the remaining four members come and have an orgy with me."
​Sheffield United supporters are "f***ing pigs" and the residents of Leeds are "a bunch of rugby lovin' c***s."
Singer Michelle McManus only won Pop Idol "because she was fat" and "being a disabled person, I would hate to win something because people thought I was 'brave' or felt sorry for me, rather than for my superior ability/talent."
There is a "prevailing western tendency to deify fatties” but fat people do not “deserve our respect."

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been branded "weak" due to his refusal to sack or suspend MP Jared O'Mara.

It has emerged that O'Mara published a string of sexist and homophobic rants online when he was in his 20s.

The comments included asking Girls Aloud to take part in an orgy, referring to gay people as "fudge packers" and called rival football supporters "f*****g pigs."

The ease of posting online has given many the chance to post some pretty offensive views, but some of the most shocking have in fact been posted by an MP.

O'Mara has stepped down from the Women and Equalities Committee after offensive comments he made between 2002 and 2004 came to light on the Guido Fawkes website.

The Sheffield Hallam MP, who is now 36, has also apologised for the comments, saying they were "unacceptable" and had been made "at a particularly difficult time in my life."

However Corbyn has thus far opted against further action, saying O'Mara will not be suspended. This decision has brought a torrent of abuse online from critics who believe it is a major black mark against Corbyn's leadership.
