Tory MP says row over 'totty' slur to female journalist is just 'political correctness'
Ex-army officer Bob Stewart appears to have spoken out after he was accused of being the mystery MP behind sexist remarks A Tory MP appears to have dismissed a row over claims he called a female journalist "totty" - by saying it's "political correctness". Ex-army officer Bob Stewart was accused of being the mystery MP behind sexist remarks at a drinks bash. Spectator journalist Isabel Hardman had said a prominent member greeted her with the words: "I want to talk to the totty." It prompted a new Westminster sexism storm, with Channel 4 News host Cathy Newman revealing she had her bottom groped and was sent "lascivious texts from a well-known peer". The MP apologised after she reported him to Tory whips - but didn't name him. Today 66-year-old Colonel Stewart was unmasked by The Sun, which claimed he was the man behind the sexist remarks. He did not explicitly deny being the culprit, instead saying: "My comment is no comment, I don’t give a sod of what people say about me. I am never rude about anyone." Now he appears to have raised the remarks in the least subtle place possible - the House of Commons. He told MPs how he was praised for defying orders to identify fighters behind a 1993 massacre of 100 people in Bosnia. He said: "Since then I have decided, as people who look at the Daily Mail and The Sun today will know, that political correctness is something I do not necessarily particularly agree with." The row is the latest in a long line of sexism claims in the Westminster bubble - where more than two-thirds of MPs are male. Radio host Julia Hartley-Brewer revealed a Tory MP who is now a 'very senior' minister groped her knee several times during an event. She told Sky News: "The third time, I said, ‘Either you don’t put your hand on my knee again or I’m going to punch you in the face.’ "He seemed to understand." Black Labour MP Dawn Butler previously told how a fellow MP assumed she was a cleaner in what she dubbed a racist slur. She said: "There was a time when I was in the lift. It was a Members’ lift that Members of Parliament use specially in cases (where) we have get to places quickly. “I was in the lift and some other MP said, ‘This lift really isn’t for cleaners’.” She refused to name the MP.

Journalist Isabel Hardman twitter-shamed an unnamed MP who referred to her at "totty" at Westminster, and passed his name on to his party whips. The issue has prompted a range of views on social media with support and criticism for the Spectator writer' actions. On the Daily Politics, Andrew Neil heard opposing views from Laura Perrins, co-editor of Conservative Woman, and Catherine Mayer, journalist and founder of the Women's Equality Party, along with columnist Dan Hodges.
