Hancock’s Sex Scandals Coming Out in the Open

There must come a point when even the LibDems, as tolerant of sexual straying as they are, must accept that Mike Hancock is a liability. The papers have even more on him this weekend. What the papers don’t mention is that allegations of serious sex crimes were made before the general election, “Handycock” sued the accuser and then dropped the case afterwards – with substantial costs awarded against him. A tactic designed to suppress the story before election day. Hancock has recently been arrested and bailed.

Constituency sources say Hancock has nine-lives politically, surely they must be used up by now? Guido has been saying for months he is a wrong ‘un. It is time his colleagues took a serious look at him – do they want to be associated with him?

Quote of the Day

Alan Johnson said…

“A graduate tax is now very much back on the agenda in my book… If you are talking about inconsistency, Osborne, Cameron, Cable all voted against any graduate contribution whatsoever. But they are Premier League inconsistency. Mine’s Champions League inconsistency.”

“Labour MPs will unite behind Ed Miliband, once we find out what our policies are.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
