Jedi MP looks forward to protection
Newly elected Labour MP for Copeland, Jamie Reed, claims to be the first Jedi Member of Parliament. Being a party loyalist, he fully supports the government’s proposed Incitement to Religious Hatred Bill.
From his maiden speech:
I crave the indulgence of the House in interrupting such an important and enjoyable debate to deliver my maiden speech. Furthermore, as the first Jedi Member of this place, I look forward to the protection under the law that will be provided to me by the Bill. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Malik) for his convincing and searing testimony in support of the proposed legislation.
Pass me my light sabre.
