An internet troll has been convicted of repeatedly sending messages threatening to sexually assault Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy.

Peter Nunn, 33, from Bristol, retweeted abusive messages after Ms Creasy backed a Bank of England move to feature author Jane Austen on the new £10 note.

He was found guilty of sending indecent, obscene or menacing messages during a hearing at the City of London Magistrates' Court.

Nunn, who claimed the messages were "a joke", was warned he faced a prison sentence.
He is due to be sentenced on 29 September.

I am for several reasons not a fan of Stella Creasey but this man acted appallingly and James O'Brien said on LBC that he has a daughter of his own which he should consider when reassessing his behaviour.

I hope he gets a firm sentence and that The MP puts it all behind her now and concentrates on the problems in the borough like the betting shops that have flourished under her own party and the drastic and worrying crime figures and serious crime occurring in Walthamstow.

Come on Cornbeefur - do the one about the darleks...

Btw, Cameron and his Eton buddies have had nearly five years to sort out the betting shops but have done nothing - mind you, when their old Etonian buddies are making a fortune in the biggest casino in the world (aka The City of London), with the knowledge we'll pick up the tab when it all goes wrong, why should they worry about this small fry?
