PERSON OF THE MONTH

ESTHER POUCHER

Most of us are lucky to get one or two likes on our Facebook posts. But not so for A-level student Esther Poucher, whose recent status made such a stir it caused a Conservative MP to announce he’d be standing down at this year’s general election. Andrew Turner, who has been the MP for the Isle of Wight for the last 16 years, allegedly told students at Poucher’s college that homosexuality was “wrong” and “dangerous to society”. The politics student then outed Turner’s views on social media, writing: “It’s terrifying that in this age and point in our development as a society, there are still people that can’t care enough about a person’s wellbeing to just accept who they are. Yes, we all believe different things, and that’s wonderful. But when that belief treats a group as sub-human, and attempts to take away their fundamental rights, we can’t respect it.” Nice work, Esther!
