Although the law was supported by the government and Prime Minister Teresa May.Sir Christopher Chop
On Friday, June 15, the British Parliament held hearings on the adoption of a law prohibiting upscaling – photographing girls from under the skirt using a camera smartphone or camera. If the law were adopted, such pictures could be punished with imprisonment for up to two years.
Against the adoption of the law was made by the conservative Sir Christopher Chope (Christopher Chope) – one of his protests was enough to ensure that the bill did not pass the hearing. Publicly, he did not explain his decision, but according to Gina Martin (the ideologist of the new law and the victim of upsorting), he only stated that he did this in principle, since the law “was not discussed.”
Chop also admitted that he did not quite understand what an upscaling is, Martin said – in response, she offered to explain to him what it is. British Prime Minister Teresa May said that she regrets that the law was not adopted, and that she will try to achieve its adoption “with the support of the government.”
Upskirting is an invasion of privacy which leaves victims feeling degraded and distressed. I am disappointed the Bill didn't make progress in the Commons today, and I want to see these measures pass through Parliament – with government support – soon.
