The Mike Hancock Report that the LibDems Hid

The LibDems have been trying to squash the Mike Hancock scandal for years. The accusation that he took advantage of disabled constituent is far more serious than anything said about Rennard. The transparency-loving LibDems yesterday blocked an attempt to release the damning report into the sleazy Portsmouth MP. So in the interest of openness, here it is:

Read the Pascoe Report into Mike Hancock here.

Once again, the LibDems have to be forced into confronting sexual harassment of women by their pervy politicians…

UPDATE: Some of the allegations against Hancock:

  • Told constituent “women had bucket crotches after hysterectomies”. Asked to be “first to road test it”.
  • Hancock “started rubbing himself” begging for “a quick w*nk and said he wasn’t very big. I picked up guitar to distract him”.
  • Hancock said he could not leave constituent’s house because “I have a peg leg and it won’t go down”
  • Hancock to ill female constituent: “You have one of those faces. You have a f**k face.”
  • “He knew I was sexually abused as a child and he asked me what sex was like with previous partners. I asked him to stop. He wouldn’t stop.”

Dark.

          Handycock, LibDem Pervert Extaordinaire says:

          I don’t know what all the fuss is about. The only reason I went in to politics in the first place was to get my leg over, I even switched Partys when it was expedient to do so. I have no edcuation and can neither spell nor put a grammatical sentence together, so I can contribute nothing to the political debate, nor have I for the last 45 years. Of course I have got plenty of nookie during this time and continue to do so, particularly in eastern Europe, where Dave Cameron was pleased to sponsor me as an Independent MP as a member of the Council for Europe which is where I get most of my sex nowadays. This is the first time in many years that I have been fingered fore sexual abuse, I acn’t see waht the problem is, i mean why become an MP if you can’t sexually abuse vulnerable female constituents. I can tell you that if I go down, I will be taking plenty down with me, and they know it. Boaz.

            In spite of this it is obvious that Hancock is even worse than Renard.
            Yet Pascoe QC advises that the FULL report be put in the public domain and gives his approval of this.
            So who is going to state that this should not be done?
            Surely not Cleggover?

    There was a long debate yesterday at Portsmouth City Council about this which I covered on my blog. As the report – or what claims to be that report – is now in the public domain I can see no other course for the City Council to take than to publish it properly and conclude the disciplinary process against Hancock.

        Unfortunately we cannot do anything about
        Handy because he has said he will blow the whistle on the scam we LibDems have been running up and down the Country in local constituencies we hold, bringing in asylum seekers and providing them with private housing, and as a result, taking political backhanders from developers for housing them as they cannot, by law, be housed in public housing. Handy and his boys have been so succesful at this in Portsmouth, where Handy is in charge of planning, that he and his fellow LibDems are the 2nd highest donors to the Party. If Handy, as promised, blows the whistle on this, we are finished at the next general election.

They were more concerned with members of the public gallery tweeting and using their phones rather than the report into sexual assault. It is obvious to see where their own personal concerns lie. This Fib Dem local government are more akin to the Soviet politburo.

    A massive well done to the Conservative and Labour Cllrs who thought of the public and transparency in this case. They demonstrated how out of touch the local government are.

        Far too much is blotted out for that to be the explanation. And she is called AH in other places, so presumably she is called that throughout the report. At most, you could justify blotting out her full name, if it appears anywhere, her address, if that appears, and the names and addresses of her family, and (perhaps, though this is dodgy), the names of any social workers and the like who had dealings with her.

    Mike Hancock News

    Statement on behalf of Mike Hancock

    22 January 2014

    Following media reports after a standards complaint to Portsmouth City Council against him as a councillor, a spokesman for Mike Hancock said: “These matters have twice been looked at by the police, first in 2010, and in conjunction with the CPS, they have found that there is no case for Mr Hancock to answer and have taken no further action.

    “Portsmouth standards sub-committee has yet to meet to hear evidence including from Mike Hancock as it decided to postpone that hearing until after the associated civil court case. Unfortunately due to the ongoing civil case, Mike received legal advice that he should not give evidence to the council’s investigator. He looks forward to giving his evidence when the sub-committee meets after the conclusion of the civil case. Mike Hancock asked to meet with the council’s investigator to explain this and this was denied him despite the city council’s solicitor asking the investigator to meet Mr Hancock.

    “He therefore believes the report which he has not seen is likely to be one-sided.

    “The independent legal advice to Portsmouth City Council noted that the High Court was a better place to establish matters of fact – not least because it could take evidence under oath which the council cannot. The most suitable place to settle a civil case is in court and not in the newspapers. As this is an on-going legal case, it not appropriate for Mike to give a running commentary. In the meantime he will continue to work hard to serve his constituents as an MP and councillor including campaigning for jobs at the dockyard.”

      2) “Mike Hancock asked to meet with the council’s investigator to explain this and this was denied him despite the city council’s solicitor asking the investigator to meet Mr Hancock”. More BS. Pascoe invited MH to talk with him on TWO occasions PRIOR to the production of the report. The City Solicitor advised MH that he should so, and he still declined. It was only AFTER the report was completed and about to be handed to PCC that MH then asked to see Pascoe, who – quite rightly – refused the request.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
