British MP Blames ‘Modern Warfare 3′ for Exploiting London Bombings

For decades video games have been blamed for sub-par graduation rates, the increase in reported A.D.D. cases, as well as the general degradation of society – by a lot of out-of-touch lawmakers. Despite how you feel about the ongoing Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 fanboy war, there’s little debate that the Call of Duty franchise is the world’s current “video games are the bane of the world” whipping post – at least until, Grand Theft Auto 5 releases.

Forgive the language but Mr. Vaz, please fuck off. Chemical attacks from a fictitious enemy bear no resemblance to a couple of English citizens blowing up trains and buses.

Utter Drivel.

I think it is more PR than anything else. He may be an MP for Leicester east but that's it really. Reading up on the stuff he has said is quite entertaining.
"In February 1990, after a bombing attack by the IRA against the Leicester British Army recruiting centre, Vaz publicly suggested that the Army had stored explosives on the premises". I think he Video game stand is to get votes.

A Labour MP with a less than honest reputation. I believe he had some dodgy dealings with 2 Indian business men who were brothers in 2001 and he was suspended from the House of Commons in 2002 for something else

The guy is a complete waste of space and should be ignored

those kinds of accusations aren't funny any more, just pathetic attempts to gain publicity.
