Minister of Youth and Culture, Lisa Hanna has called for parliamentary colleague, Everald Warmington to be disciplined.

This after Warmington referred to her as a Jezebel during yesterday’s sitting of the House of Representatives.

Warmington, the MP for South West St Catherine, made the remarks as members considered a resolution to increase the minimum wage.

In an Instagram post, the youth minister labelled Warmington’s behaviour as 'obnoxious and misogynistic'.

She also said she was not surprised at Warmington’s misconduct and noted that he appears to have an obsessive compulsion with her.

"Much as I would prefer to be surprised at such grossly unparliamentary behaviour by a colleague, I am forced to confess that Mr Warmington's misconduct is no surprise.

Based on his history, he seems to have a problem with women in general and a obsessive compulsion with me.

Why else would he take the time, as he has done in the past, to make a special complaint to the Speaker about his perception that my trousers were too tight?

Why else would he waste parliament's time with a motion about how women dress?

Why else would he constantly make funny faces at me in parliament.

Without doubt, his behaviour to women in general and me in particular is inexplicably vulgar, boorish, uncouth and abusive.

His example, as a national leader, is one of the reasons why some of our young girls suffer such callous cruelty at the hands of adult men.

Mr Warmington's personal troubles go beyond mere misogyny his repetitive addiction towards indecent and perversely obnoxious behaviour sets bad examples for our nation's children and our people in general.

Let have the courage to deal with him once and for all.
