This pic of the Tory MP who blocked the upskirting law being knighted is perfect
No shortage of comment today on the Tory MP Sir Christopher Chope who single-handedly blocked a law change that would have made upskirting illegal.
But in the spirit of a picture tells a thousand words, this one of him being knighted by the Queen – by @IamHappyToast – pretty much nails it.

This is Sir Christopher Chope who blocked the upskirt bill. I’m sure his wife is now wondering what his other hand was doing. pic.twitter.com/gvkPWU9mFs

I remember Christopher Chope getting angry with a Twitter executive at the Home Affairs Select Committee, because not enough had been done to take down a Christopher Chope parody account.
But if you want to take photographs up women's skirts, that's fine with Christopher Chope.

Citizens of Christchurch, does this gentleman represent your views? If not, then the rest of us would be delighted if you booted him out at the next election. https://t.co/AZaAXJJVm9

My friend @jojomoyes has suggested women now call upskirting "Choping," so that Sir Christopher Chope – who just blocked legislation against it without knowing what it is – really quickly learns what it is. YOU DIRTY CHOPER. I like it.
