Jess Phillips responds to the PM’s comment describing questions about rape convictions as ‘jabber’

Jess Phillips MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding, responding to the Prime Minister’s comment describing questions about rape convictions as ‘jabber’, said:

“For the Prime Minister to describe questions about rape convictions as ‘jabber’ is disgraceful. But this is the man who once said investigating child sexual abuse was ‘spaffing money up the wall’ – he simply doesn’t care about tackling sexual violence. He should apologise for his comments and his government’s appalling record.”
