    Not true. The maximum fine is 4,000. But truth and you on this story is clearly not going to work. Lying for Jesus are we.

    This isnt right whatever your views on abortion is everyone should still be entitled to their own opinion, free speech for only those you agree with isnt free speech at all.

    I don't believe it's the money that has the students unhappy. It's her actions and the way she did it. What's laughable is it's entirely predictable there would be repercussions. Students don't like being dissed.

    We have a report stating the reason the decision was taken. I refuse to comply with your debating fallacy tactics "but what if..."


    If It was reported she had pulled an ad. for a group campaigning on the Article 8, I would agree the protest and calls to impeach had some justification.


    But this isn't the case, and by your obfuscation, you effectively admit the same. You can address the salient point "is impeachment action warranted for an official pulling something they have been advised is illegal"? Or you can keep schtum.

    Removing an ad you disagree with is not exercising freedom of speech, it's denying it.

    Lying to the membership of a union in order to get elected is not exercising free speech, it's lying.

    Openly calling for the removal of a liar from office is, on the other hand, exercising freedom of speech.

    Its her Pro Life stance is why this is going on

    - it would be disingenuous for anyone to suggest otherwise ...

    Yes, because it stands in direct contradiction of her declared election platform, she lied, she got caught.

    How much could it have cost if she'd left it in?
