Lord Ken Maginnis, who was reported to police for a homophobic hate crime by SNP MP Hannah Bardell, denied being a homophobe as well as calling Bardell queer in the offensive manner. Bardell, who is in a relationship with a woman, accused the member of the House of Lords of “abusive behavior” towards security on Wednesday, January 8, and said it was “one of the worst cases of abuse of security staff” she had seen during her time as an MP. Maginnis responded on it saying that queers like Bardell did not annoy him and all they wanted was a cheap publicity. This is a part of his interview to HuffPost, the records are fixed, and the journalist behind the article has even made the video tape of the interview viral, and the phrase is clearly heard, but now the politician claims to have never said so, but he is ready to apologized for the words he ‘did not say’ to the woman whose name he failed to remember. “I know a lot of people who would be part of the LGBT brigade, I get on very well with them. Most of them are respectful,” he said.
