Committee members welcome departure of Tory who faced accusations of sexism
The departure from the women and equalities committee of a Tory MP who faced accusations of sexism has been welcomed by some of its members.
The Ashfield MP, Lee Anderson, who boycotted watching England’s men in the European Championship over players taking the knee, was criticised for telling a female district councillor in his constituency to “stay out of big boy politics” in November. Samantha Deakin said she was a victim of “blatant misogyny and sexism”.
