Anti-gay Lord Maginnis claims that the MP complained over him because she was ‘queer’ herself


Lord Ken Maginnis, who said that homosexuality was the same as sex with animals, complained on him because she was a ‘queer’ seeking ‘cheap publicity’. SNP MP Hannah Bardell, who is in fact in same-sex relationships, insists that it is definitely not the main reason why she publicly called her colleague out. And furthermore, his homophobia neither was the reason. She said that former Ulster Unionist MP Maginnis refused to show his security pass, then when security staff did not let him in he called them “crooked”, and asked “do they not know who he was”. Bardell said it was “one of the worst cases of abuse of security staff” she had ever seen. Responding to his comments, Bardell also told HuffPost UK: “It is unbelievable that someone who plays a part in the UK legislative process – albeit unelected – has made these comments… Lord Maginnis has now not only admitted to this terrible behavior, but he is now turning to spouting this homophobic bile. While I might not annoy him, homophobic, rude and intolerable men abusing their positions of power annoy me, greatly.”
