A WOULD-BE Lib Dem MP who speaks out on crime and policing is behind bars after battering his family cat to death — with a WALKING STICK.
Mike Dixon, 53, prospective parliamentary candidate for Birmingham Northfield, killed black and white cat Tipsy with repeated blows to the head and body in May last year.
The politician has previously appeared in his local paper after he complained about yobs throwing rubbish into his back garden.
And on his website he states his "main areas of interest" are "Policing and Crime".
My comment: And kitten killing.
