Mansfield MP Comes Under Fire

17th January 2018
News, Mansfield

Mansfield's MP Ben Bradley has come under fire for saying that unemployed people should get vasectomies.

The 28 year old made the comments on a blog post back in 2012. in it he is said to have put the UK would become "a vast sea of unemployed wasters" if people on benefits had too many children. The post was written in support of benefit cuts made in that year by the coalition government.

Mr. Bradley made history in June when he became the town's first ever Conservative MP beating Sir Alan Meale (Labour) who had been in the seat for 30 years.

In the Prime Minister's Cabinet reshuffle earlier this month he was given the role of Vice Chair for Youth at the Government.

He has since apologised for the remarks which have been deleted.

Mansfield 103.2 has contacted Ben Bradley for comment.
