Now this is a really nasty political tactic ... (Irony alert).

Mhairi Black, the SNP Member of Parliament for Paisley and Renfrewshire South, has complained in a Guardian interview that many Tory MPs stopped looking her in the eye after her maiden speech and a lot of Labour MPs would never look her in the eye in the first place.

This seems to have been headline news in The Independent. Must have been a slow news day.

Hmm. If she thinks that is a serious example of rudeness towards one's political opponents in general and of patronising younger female political opponents in particular, perhaps we should have invited her to attend Conservative Conference 2015 in Manchester and find out what ordinary Conservative party members - not to mention journalists, cleaners, caterers and guests - at our party gatherings had to put up with this year.
