Jared O'Mara suspended. Sheffield deserves better than what we've seen from the Sheffield Hallam MP.

Commenting on the latest developments in the Jared O’Mara saga, Sheffield Lib Dem Leader, Cllr. Shaffaq Mohammed, said:

“Jared O’Mara is not the spokesperson that our city deserves.

“It’s clear from his language that he thinks objectification of women is fine - It’s not. And the people of Sheffield deserves better.

“We’ve seen him degrade gay people, he’s degraded women, he’s even used some racially sensitive language. But now he talks about ‘teenage girls’ and local children all after he stood for Labour as a councillor. His comments don’t represent the Sheffield I know.”

Lib Dem peer and Local councillor, Paul Scriven, as well as Liberal Democrat Leader, Vince Cable, have both called for his suspension.

Lord Paul Scriven said:

“I am very happy to finally see the suspension of Jared O’Mara. Now we need a fully open and transparent investigation into all of Jared’s past.

“With new comments coming out daily, a pattern is not only starting to emerge, it’s beginning to paint a picture of a not very nice man. If this is indeed the case, the people of Sheffield Hallam deserve a right to elect someone who better represents them.”
