‘Creepy’ Labour peer blasted for harassing women and saying he hoped the ‘Upskirting Bill would contain photos’


A PEER was blasted for harassing a string of women and joking that he hoped the “Upskirting Bill would contain photos”.

Female staff told how Lord Stone of Blackheath cornered them in Parliament’s secluded corridors, stroked their arms and commented on their looks.

They called the Labour peer “a bit creepy” and said he made them feel “uncomfortable, angry and anxious”.

He also used the racial slur “n*****” in testimony to Parliament’s sleaze watchdog.

Lord Stone, 77, was found to have harassed or made transphobic comments to four female workers.

Standards Commissioner Lucy Scott-Moncrieff ordered him to have “bespoke training”.

Her report told how he stopped one woman on a staircase to insist she was “beautiful”. She blasted his “unwelcome” behaviour.

Another complained he put kisses at the end of emails and he told the Upskirting Bill “joke” to a young woman.

Lord Stone is also said to have gone with a guest to sign a pledge about tackling transphobic abuse, barged to the front of the queue and said: “Where does he sign? He wants the operation.”

Lord Stone told the watchdog he meant no offence.

He added: “I wouldn’t call somebody a n***** in, like, in an aggressive way.

“But let us say I was at some meeting, particularly in Israel with black people or whatever, I would say, ‘We are all n*****s’.”

The Sun contacted Lord Stone for comment. Labour said it is suspending the whip during his training.
