A political fallacy
So, another sex scandal in British politics! Men in power abusing their position and sexually harassing young women. What a surprise!
Despite their shameful behaviour, Parliamentary etiquette demands that these morons be referred to as “The Honourable Member for [constituency] …” when it is simply a fallacy that there is anything honourable about them at all (or their ‘members’). And it isn’t confined to a single political party despite what you may read below …
There once was a Tory MP
Who fondled a young lady’s knee
‘Cos the lecherous old prick
Kept his brains in his dick
And his ‘honour’ was a mere phallusy!
