Description
A man is facing jail after being found guilty of sending obscene messages to Labour MP Stella Creasy, including threats of rape.

The man sent or retweeted a string of messages directed to the MP for Walthamstow, including one which asked for “the best way to rape a witch”.

The City of London Magistrates Court heard on Tuesday that the messages began on 29 July last year, after Creasy backed feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez’s successful campaign for a picture of a women to be put on £10 notes, The Guardian reported.

The man also posted a series of bizarre videos in which he said the two women were part of a feminist conspiracy and played “Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead”.
