An ancient nutcase IMO......
Arrogant, ignorant pig wants slapping into the middle of next week for allowing such evil to prevail longer than necessary.
It's a Private Member's Bill (that's one introduced by an MP) and Chope often objects to them because he thinks the process used doesn't allow proper scrutiny.
Choose seems unable to differentiate between something which irrefutably needs to become law and things which require due process / debate. I hope his constituents get rid of him at the first opportunity.
Chope not Choose. Tut.

It seems he has his reasons, but I do not agree with what he is doing.

/// The Christchurch MP argues that even if he backs the intent of such bills he objects to them because he does not support the procedural principle of legislation being passed without debate at second reading.///
The thing is but, he doesn't object to every Private Member's Bill so he is a hypocrite.
Isn’t this the charmer who stopped the bill about upskirting?

Tory MP who blocked upskirting bill halts FGM protection law
He needs the top inch of his you know what chopping off with a rusty razor blade,see how he likes it.
It is easy to misunderstand the actions of Sir Christopher, his reasons, and the outcome.

The simple misunderstanding is that he is some sort of nutcase who objects to bills for some perverse reasons of his own, which stops laws being passed.

The reality is that Sir Cristopher objects (and that is his right as an MP) to Bills which he believes should receive proper scrutiny and debate, rather than being nodded through.

People can, and do, say that his action is wrong, but his reason is a valid one, and he believes it is a point of parliamentary principle to act as he has.
As I said above tho, AH, there are some things which need no debate. FGM and upskirt shots are two examples. What is there to debate?

@ 19:12,
That's what it says in the link in the OP
Zacs - // As I said above tho, AH, there are some things which need no debate. FGM and upskirt shots are two examples. What is there to debate? //

I agree entirely, but Sir Christopher obviously feels that further scrutiny is in order, and exercises his parliamentary privilege in order to see that it is applied.
Andy hughes...but he does object for some perverse reason of his own...without considering the damage both mental and physical to these girls he votes against a new law...honestly others would say girls need protecting as soon as is humanly possible and say that there is no real need for debate as the protectionwill be delayed and that shouldn't happen....he does also vote for private members bills on occasion and it is suggested these are bills suggested by his friends.
Do you not agree tho, that Parliamentary privilege is being abused because there’s nothing to debate?
Zacs - // Do you not agree tho, that Parliamentary privilege is being abused because there’s nothing to debate? //

I do - but it is Sir Christopher's right, and it points to the fact that this particular parliamentary privilege can, and is being used to delay a vital piece of legislation.
Mmm. We seem to be going round in circles. Do you think he’s right to excersize PP in these two examples?
Rather than stopping good laws being brought in he should perhaps initiate a debate about his own point of view to get parliamentary procedures changed.
As it is he needs unseating or de-selecting before he does any more damage.
Zacs - // Do you think he’s right to excersize PP in these two examples? //

Absolutely not.
