Exclusive: Tory MP makes Weinstein joke at Anticoagulation Awards

aaa

Earlier today, the inaugural ‘Anticoagulation Achievement Awards’ (AAA) were held in the Terrace Pavilion at the House of Commons. As the AAA’s press release states, the awards were held as part of the celebrations of World Thrombosis Day in two days’ time are are to celebrate “outstanding practice in the management, education and provision of anticoagulation across the UK”.

On this occasion, they also appear to have been an opportunity for a Tory MP to make a joke of such staggeringly poor taste that attendees report listeners were stunned into silence.

Parliamentary insiders have told the SKWAWKBOX that the MP, who represents a south coast constituency, made a speech as part of the ceremony and quipped,

At least everyone here didn’t have to do anything on the casting couch to get an award.

One person present told this blog:

It was clearly a reference to Weinstein. Everyone just looked at each other – the only person laughing was him.

Harvey Weinstein, as most readers will know, is the Hollywood producer just removed by his own company over allegations of a series of sexual assaults on young women – including Angelina Jolie and Gyneth Paltrow – over a long period.

Nice to know some Tory MPs consider that a laughing matter. It is to be hoped that the Conservative party will take action.

  5. How ironic that a massive clot should be at an anticoagulation awards ceremony…

    Meanwhile, we’ve seen only too recently what happens to tory councillors when they make ‘jokes’ so don’t hold out any hope that this MP will be so much as ‘finger-wagged’
