LibDems Select Hancock Cover Up Ally to Fight His Seat

Nick Clegg said that the LibDems had had a long hard look in the mirror after the recent sex scandals that have plagued the party. But has anything really changed?

They’ve welcomed back handsy Lord Rennard into the party fold after he apologised for ‘inadvertently’ ‘invading the personal space’ (knickers) of female activists and party aides. Now a row is brewing over their candidate selected in Portsmouth South, the seat vacated by pervy MP Mike Hancock who apologised and settled out of court after admitting inappropriate behaviour towards a mentally ill constituent. Portsmouth Council fought tooth and nail to protect Hancock: initially dismissing the allegations and refusing to properly investigate. Hancock’s oddball ally Gerald Vernon Jackson was the council leader at the time – and will now fight to keep his seat yellow. It’s a gift to UKIP, who made huge gains on the council in May. Another target seat for Farage…

Cross Party Councillors Go After Hancock For Cover Up Costs

A cross party motion will be put before Portsmouth Council to get pervy MP Mike Hancock to cough up for the legal costs of the extensive cover up instigated by the old Liberal Democrat regime in the city, concerning his sexual harassment of a mentally ill constituent. Both the Tories and Labour are signed up to this motion that is expected to easily pass:

(f) Proposed by Councillor Alistair Thompson
Seconded by Councillor John Ferrett

The City Council is concerned at the conduct of one its former members’ who has admitted to abusing his position of trust. He has admitted to harassing a resident, making repeated unwanted sexual advances and conduct that falls below the standards expected of a Parliamentarian or a member of this Council.

Over the last four years the Council has spent tens of thousands of pounds investigating this matter, both through court and legal fees and officer time – This at a time when the Council is faced with making cuts to front line services.

The Council believes that this is an unsatisfactory situation.

The Council therefore requests the Governance and Audit and Standards Committee to do the following:

1. Instruct officers to prepare a detailed breakdown of the full costs of this affair
2. To write to all members with this information
3. To write to the former member requesting that given this unnecessary burden on the taxpayers of Portsmouth that now he has admitted to these appalling actions he might chose to repay this sum and thus ease the financial burden on residents
4. To consider legal action to reclaim these costs if he refuses.

A council source tells Guido the bill could easily reach £100,000.

Hancock Victim: “It’s Disgusting That No-One Listened to Me”

Portsmouth News have further detail of the heartbreaking pleas made by a vulnerable young woman pursued by Mike Hancock that, as revealed by Guido in the Sun in January, were ignored by the government. “Annie” sent letters, under her real name, to Nick Clegg and the other party leaders, but never received a reply. In March 2011 she wrote to Clegg:

Speaking out this morning, “Annie” says:

“It angers me. It’s disgusting that no-one listened to me all those years ago. It’s a bit too late for them to jump on the bandwagon as I have been tormented for all of these years. I’m angry that some never even bothered to reply to me. The system of dealing with people with mental health problems needs changing. It’s terrible.”

We know the letter was received by Downing Street, but still her cries for help went unanswered…

Tories Call for Portsmouth By-Election

Bad Night for Pervs

Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock has lost the Portsmouth council seat he has held for 43 years to UKIP. In fact Handycock came third, picking up just 628 votes. UKIP’s winning candidate Julie Swan twists the knife:

“It’s about time people were represented by a normal human being and someone who works for a living.”

Even worse news for the LibDems in Kingston, where they lost control of the council to the Tories. The fact that the last LibDem Kingston council leader has just been jailed for child porn offences can’t have helped. Good riddance.

“The Strange Sex of LibDem England”

Someone is getting up to all sorts of mischief down in Portsmouth, circulating this attack leaflet piling into the LibDems over their many sex scandals:

Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith, Rennard and Hancock - you can’t help but think whoever is sticking this through people’s letterboxes has a point…

Mike Hancock’s Lawyers Claim He Lacks “Mental Capacity” LibDems Back His “Independent” Campaign to Hold Council Seat

Hancock crosshairs

Despite theoretically being thrown out of the LibDems, pervy Mike Hancock is standing for the council unopposed by the LibDems, with his campaign implicitly supported by their resources. The party of Cyril Smith never learns…

Dear Nick, ‘Please Stop’ Him ‘Before Someone Else is Abused’
Tape Proves Downing Street Received Hancock Warning in ’11

The heartbreaking pleas from a vulnerable young woman to Nick Clegg have been revealed. As reported in this morning’s Sun, the Deputy Prime Minister cruelly ignored a letter from “Annie”, sent under her real name, as she begged three years ago to “please stop” MP Mike Hancock “before it is too late before someone else gets hurt and abused by him.” 

The Portsmouth South constituent, who is accusing her MP of abusing her after she went to him for help, sent Clegg this chilling warning in March 2011:

“He cannot be trusted and he is a liability to women, public and also your party. Stop the behaviour from him and his staff and whoever is involved with Mr Hancock as this is holy wrong. And please reply to this letter as it is very important to me that I get answers from you”

Nick Clegg said on Friday that he was “appalled” when he “first heard specific allegations” at the beginning of 2013 and that he had “acted immediately” to suspend Hancock as MP. He said “some letters were sent and some were not received.” This one was.

Guido can now reveal that “Annie’s” damning letter definitely reached the Deputy Prime Minister’s office in Downing Street. A secret tape recording has emerged proving that No. 10 civil servants had received the letter and told “Annie” and it would be specifically passed on to Clegg’s Political Office. Guido is not running the full tape in order to protect “Annie’s” identity, but the extract below proves the Downing Street communications office, having checked “Annie’s” postcode, were clearly aware of the content of the letter and had passed it on to Clegg’s people:

No.10: Ok, this is a complaint regarding your MP Mike Hancock… 

Annie: Yes

No.10: Because this is a political issue it is being passed to the political section to deal with rather than us at the communication office because we are civil servants we are not really able to comment on matters like this. So what I can do is get in touch with the Political Office and say that you have called up inquiring about your letter.

Nick Clegg’s Political Office never replied to “Annie”, ignoring her warning “before it is too late before someone else gets hurt and abused by him.” Shame on them.
