A disgraced MP has suggested that people “tend to get what they deserve in the end”.

Rob Roberts, who was suspended from the UK Parliament for six weeks for sexually harassing a member of his staff, made the suggestion in a social media post.

The independent Delyn MP, who has been readmitted to the Conservative party since his suspension, but not into the Tory parliamentary group, has been sharing a series inspirational memes with captions on his Facebook page, which have the title: “Morning positivity!”

His posts included advice to “treat others well”, to do things “because they are the right thing to do”, a claim that “your past doesn’t have to define you”, as well as a suggestion to not “be so hard on yourself”.

Roberts was found to have “repeated and unwanted sexual advances” by a parliamentary watchdog, but ignored repeated calls to resign from the House of Commons.

A post at 9am on 10 February said: “Morning positivity! Treat others well.”

It would be better all round, if this gutter snipe kept his thoughts to himself.

Kind of half suspended by the money grubbers political wing. Applicants for Conservative membership must have to produce a medical certificate showing skin thickness. Rhino’s go straight into cabinet positions.

All MP’s have something to hide and some are corrupt but they would say no. Can we not have a discussion on the loss of new roads in North Wales to to a Senedd think tank. Or the loss of an £8 million grant to remove the roundabouts at Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr again due to the think tank…so far that is about a £22 million loss. The new Caernarfon bypass is another mostly single road like the Y Felinheli bypass….by cheap by twice. The latter will just move the jams fro Caernarfon to the new road. …£ 132 million so… Read more »

You lost me here, what has this post about roads got to do with Rob Robert’s and his advances to male and female staff members. ? Are you trying the “whatabout” strategy here to deflect from Tory sleaze?
