Labour Point Finger at Llewellyn

Following Guido’s story this morning that Patrick Rock was subject to a second sexual harassment complaint from a junior Downing Street staffer, Labour have written to Cabinet Secretary Jeremy Heywood asking:

  • In total how many sexual harassment allegations have been made against Mr Rock, on what dates were they made, and in each case how were they dealt with and what was the outcome?
  • Was there a formal process for dealing with the sexual harassment allegations against Mr Rock, and what was the involvement of the Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff, Ed Llewellyn, in that process?
  • What other officials were involved? In your judgement, is it right for a political appointee to handle a sexual harassment complaint made by an official about another political appointee?

Firming up Labour sources this morning taking aim at Cameron’s chief of staff and Rock’s close friend, Ed Llewellyn. Don’t expect a reply any time soon…

    Dan "utter twat" Hodges says:

    If we had more woman MPs then Putin could not invade the Ukraine. Also we need more immigrants. Everyone who disagrees with me is out of touch. And I have never been on public transport where people were speaking other languages around me and I have never laughed at a joke about national stereotypes. Ever.

      You might be interested in two new spread betting books we have opened.

      Firstly you can now bet on the number of Ukrainians to be killed before Easter and secondly you can bet on how many Ukrainian refugees will be living in the UK next Christmas Day.

      That Cameron person and his hencemen sound like a right bunch of shadt characters, no wonder they created such a holler over Harriet H they knew what was coming, they don’t seem any better, infact they are starting to sound like sanctimonious hypocrites.

    Pebble vs Rock says:

    If Labour want to ask about Rock, the Conservatives should be asking about NOTHERN ROCK where Gordon Brown gifted billions of our money in a bail out to speculator hedge fund and bond traders from losing money on their failed investments.

    No 10 is looking more corrupt day by day. So is politics in general for that matter.

      If H@rriet and Dromey, and by extension the Labour party had got their way, Mr R0ck wouldn’t have allegedly done anything illegal.

      The usual Labour rank hypocrisy. This time based on a vile p@edo organisation of their own making.

      They cannot stoop any lower.

    This Site is going down the pan when Guido just follows what the Labour Questions are … !
    Too much effort on stories in the dead tree press, as Guido called it, and not enough on this blog…

      Agreed. Guido, you need to get a grip. I know the traditional reply is to tell people to collect a refund or start your own blog, but, and I say this as a great admirer, the fact is that this blog is getting too insiderish and predictable. Don’t kill your brand and turn a classic blog into the new improved diet version.

      Guido bad friends write letter says:

      If you report a crime you have done your duty. Is it not up to the police to publicize it to further their investigations. Is saying nothing acceptable and correct?

    Nice to see that the R-Fed have compromised completely EU phone lines:

    From the RT article above.

    Certainly works towards P’tins desire for EU to join R-Fed custom / trade union.

    Time for the UK to exit EU.

    Labour in fine hypocritical mode says:

    We want to know about this, we want to know about that, but we want to know
    nothing about Dromey, Dromey and Hewitt. Got it?
