Tory Spin-Doctor Arrested Over Alleged ‘Cannibal’ Assault Two Men Bitten in Bloody Hampshire Brawl

Adrian Yalland, a former Tory candidate and fixer for various Tory MPs has been arrested for assault after apparently biting two men during a brawl in Hampshire. The video below is alleged to show Yalland, formerly a spinner for spin shop Chelgate, attacking a man on a quiet street in Stockbridge:

Hampshire Police confirmed in a statement to Guido: “Police were called at 4.10 p.m. on Thursday, February 20 following a report of a dispute outside an address on Stockbridge High Street. A 56-year-old man and a 46-year-old man both from Stockbridge suffered minor injuries. A 44-year-old man from Marchwood was arrested on suspicion of assault. He has been bailed pending further enquiries until March 27.”

Yalland handled the press for Nigel Evans when he was charged and has worked with various MPs including Andrew Bridgen and Nadine Dorries.

  • A Tory spokesperson says: “This is a matter for the police.”
  • Nigel Evans’ office says: “I don’t think we can make any comment.”
  • Adrian Yalland was not answering his phone today.

Not the best PR spin strategy…

UPDATE: April 26: Yalland says the police are not pressing charges against him.

      Tories are now going on the offensive and attacking Red Ed directly. I guess they’ve decided it’s now too late for Labour to change their leader, but is it?

      There’s no doubt Ed is the Tories’ greatest asset and the prospect of him becoming PM will prevent Labour winning. However, it’s a dangerous game to play while Labour still have time to come to their senses and choose a leader with PM potential. Labour still haven’t realised how much trouble they’re in while Ed is in place.

      Time will tell.

      Some facts from the Khmer Rouge (who were left of center):

      http://thediplomat.com/2011/11/khmer-rouge-horrors-laid-out/

      ‘The court heard that beatings with rattans, the use of pincers to pull nails, noses and ear lobes, electrocution and suffocation were common after Cambodians were forced into the countryside amid fears by paranoid ultra-Maoists that the cities had become nerve centers for enemies of the Khmer Rouge.

      At Sre Ambel, laborers toiled in fields until their legs were eaten away by salt water. But far more grisly forms of torture persisted, including disembowelment and acts of cannibalism. One prisoner had his feet nailed to a board and was ordered to sing while he was beaten. Others had their gall bladders removed, which were then taken to the kitchen. Children aged as young as two or three were swung by their feet and their heads smashed into a tamarind tree.’
