Outrage as upskirting ban backed by Holly is blocked
Today we were looking forward to congratulating Gina Martin on a victory for women. A victim of upskirting, Gina had taken her campaign to put a stop to it to parliament. On Friday, it was announced it had government support and would become part of a bill to make upskirting a criminal offence. But when the bill was read out, Tory MP Sir Christopher Chope shouted ‘object’. That’s all it took to stop the campaign in its tracks. Sir Christopher's objection was met with cries of ‘shame’ and has caused national outrage, with even the PM getting involved.
Today, Gina is back to explain why he did it, and to reveal what happens next for the campaign.
