Commenting on the planned gathering in Edinburgh of supporters of the American author Daryush Valizadeh (known as 'Roosh V') who advocates the legalisation of rape on private property, Deidre Brock MP said:-
"Mr Valizadeh's views on rape are dangerously idiotic. While I think he deserves ridicule and contempt more than publicity, there are safety concerns about the advertised gathering of his supporters on Saturday – should he actually have any supporters. Given his pro-rape statements I have raised my concerns about the legality of the event with the police. I hope that the men of Edinburgh show their disdain for his hateful views by simply not turning up."
