More questions for Jared

Suspended Labour MP caught paying thousands of pounds of taxpayer cash to rent his office from a party colleague

  • Jared O’Mara had the whip removed last October over social media comments
  • The Sheffield Hallam MP had the Labour whip reinstated following a probe 
  • Labour issued O’Mara with a formal warning after their internal investigation  

A shamed Labour MP has been using taxpayers’ money to pay a Labour councillor thousands of pounds in rent for his constituency office while suspended from the party.

Jared O’Mara had the whip removed last October over sexist and homophobic comments made on social media and for calling a woman an ‘ugly bitch’ at the Sheffield bar he used to run.

But, while suspended, he continued to serve as MP for Sheffield Hallam, the seat he won in June last year from former Lib Dem leader Sir Nick Clegg.

Labour MP O’Mara must ‘get on and represent his constituency’

Labour MP Jared O’Mara must now “engage fully” with his job and represent his Sheffield Hallam seat after being reinstated to the party following a suspension for a series of homophobic, racist and misogynistic online remarks, a colleague has said.
Mr O’Mara is yet to make a maiden speech in the Commons since ousting Sir Nick Clegg in the June 2017 general election.

The 36-year-old MP, who is paid more than £74,000 a year, made an unreserved apology when he was suspended in October for the comments he made online in his early 20s, blaming the “lad culture” he grew up with where the language was considered normal.

YP Letters: Labour let down Sheffield by failing to discipline Jared O’Mara

From: Coun Penny Baker, Deputy leader of the Lib Dem group, Sheffield Council.
LIKE a lot of people in Sheffield, I was shocked to learn about the terrible comments MP Jared O’Mara made, but it’s clear that the Labour party haven’t taken them seriously.
With this hearing, Labour had the chance to set things straight, they didn’t.
