MP brands Leeds student “a little shit”

Lib Dem Greg Mulholland told economics student Jonathan Pryor: “I am very glad I have never met you Jonathan as you are a disingenuous, manipulative, illiberal little shit”.

Handbags have erupted after our local MP called a Leeds student “a little shit” for challenging him on gay marriage.

Lib Dem Greg Mulholland told economics student Jonathan Pryor: “I am very glad I have never met you Jonathan as you are a disingenuous, manipulative, illiberal little shit”.

The spat, which took place between consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes, happened on Twitter.

Pryor, a mature student, was criticising Mulholland – Hyde Park’s MP – for his position on gay marriage.

The MP’s views have been controversial – although he did back gay marriage in a vote yesterday.

Pryor describes himself as “pro-banter” in his twitter profile, and it seems Mr Mulholland shares that hobby. He later tweeted: “I shouldn’t have called him little that was wrong whether he is or not. The rest, true.”
