“Oh God, It’s Happening to Me Now”

Today in court three alleged victims of sex offences at the hands of Nigel Evans gave evidence against the former Deputy Speaker. The first alleged victim told the court he felt a “very drunk” Evans put his hand down his trousers in a Soho bar. He said he thought at the time “oh god it’s happening to me now… if I don’t walk away I am going to hit him,” and that “it wasn’t a comedy squeeze. I knew what he was doing, he knew what he was doing.” Evans was, he said, “like a drunken 14 year old at a school disco who couldn’t chat you up with words”. Another witness present confirmed they also saw Evans put his hand down the man’s trousers. Under cross-examination, the alleged victim played down the incident, saying “he was just being drunk Nigel” and that he didn’t consider himself the victim of a crime.

The second alleged victim told the court a “very clearly very heavily intoxicated” Evans put his hands down his trousers at Tory party conference in 2003. He said he told Conor Burns, now a  Tory MP, that Evans was subsequently put to bed. He said he told then junior whip Mark Hoban what had happened and that he considered it something he could leave the whips to resolve. The alleged victim described Evans as “a drunken letch at a bar” and said that “although I thought his behaviour was unacceptable I didn’t want it to be pursued.”

The third alleged victim claimed Evans tried to kiss him at parliament’s Strangers bar. He said that when he left the bar to use the bathroom Evans called him into another room and leaned in to kiss him. He told him “No, we’re not doing that” and pushed him away. A friend later dismissed the incident, saying “that’s what Nigel can be like”. The trial continues…

      This is one of the problems of our parliamentary system when you vote for the party and not the man/woman. This allows all the pervs,liars,troughers etc to sneak in under the guise of the party. One of the ways around it is all candidates to be vetted and the result made public.

          The Tories knew about this before the last General Election and did nothing about it. They are no different than Clegg and his perverts.

          How many more perverts, criminals and liars are there in The HoC

          Its very easy to see now why Cameron came under so much pressure for Gay Marriage

          Always remember this man was elected to be deputy speaker when a lot of people knew he was a drunk and a pervert and on top of that he was give a standing ovation in the HoC when he stepped down as Deputy Speaker.

          Is it any wonder so few people are choosing not to vote. As lots of people have said on this site MPs just don’t get it.

          • Arguably, true. But punching the Deputy Speaker in the face in the House of Commons might be career limiting. You’d certainly think twice about it. In any case, the problem isn’t really for blokes who can just shrug it off as ‘just Nigel’, though, even the ones who later wish they had kneed him in the nuts rather than putting him to bed and putting it down to experience; it’s the ones who were genuinely traumatised by the assault and feel violated, ashamed, etc etc. Even if there haven’t been any of those yet, if one takes the reported testimony so far entirely at face value then it will surely only be a matter of time.
