Paul Walter mentioned on Radio 1 website for sexy MP post

On Saturday, Paul Walter, who writes the fabulous Liberal Burblings blog, wrote a post criticising the Sexy MP website, with the highly appropriate headline "Stop this stomach churning pernicious nonsense".

Well, he is probably now the coolest Liberal Democrat blogger after his comments were picked up by Radio 1's Newsbeat website.  It's now third most popular read item on the BBC News Front Page.

I'm concerned that the quotes from inside the Westminster Bubble seem to suggest that this is all a great laugh. Actually, I think it's degrading and dehumanising. If you are one of those people laughing at it, you might want to have a look at the post I wrote (which Paul linked to) explaining the harm these things can do.

Once again it's a Liberal Democrat who's going beyond the superficial and actually thinking about the wider issues. Well done, Paul.
