Leak Shows LibDems Dismissed “Political” Hancock Complaint

As Guido first revealed on Sunday, Nick Clegg’s denial that he knew of the allegations against self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock is wearing thin. A letter has been leaked from Gerald Vernon-Jackson, a Clegg confidant and member of the party’s all powerful Federal Executive. He is also Hancock’s boss on Portsmouth Council. Despite the seriousness of the claims piling up against Hancock, when he was explicitly told about Vernan Jackson refused to act on them and dismissed them entirely in a 2010 reply because:

Two years later they have finally launched an inquiry…

LISTEN: Clegg Blames the Postman for Handy-cock Silence

Clegg has been spinning hard on LBC this morning. On Handy-cock he, surprise surprise, says he wasn’t told about the allegations:

“My office never received the letter from the claimant’s solicitors (in 2011), we did however receive a letter in February this year. Police have looked at this before and dismissed it on the advice of the CPS. My chief whip has gone down to Portsmouth and spoken to Mike Hancock’s solicitor. I hope you won’t imply in any way that we are not acting thoroughly and quickly to what are very serious allegations. I’ve not spoken to Mike Hancock, he’s been very ill.”

Given the story broke in 2010, Clegg has a lot to thank the postal service for. On David “The Jews” Ward:

“I’ve spoken to David Ward, and he’s apologised. I am finalising an agreement with him that he will commit never to use generalised language that is offensive to communities in Britain.”

Because that worked so well last time…

Handy-Cock Hearing: The Details

More information about yesterday’s Portsmouth council meeting into sleazy LibDem MP Mike Hancock has emerged overnight. The two LibDems and one Tory councillor unanimously agreed that the investigation had to go forward. Guido understands that Hancock tried to argue that he was acting in a personal capacity when he was bombarding his constituent with text messages.  The fact that he was a councillor at the time and had signed up to the council’s code of conduct made that line of argument tricky though. Sources suggest that LibDem Councillor Les Stevens, a big supporter of the Hancock, pushed this line too. In vain. Outside legal types will be brought in and it’s expected to take several months. Why the LibDems did not do this themselves already beggars belief.

Handy-cock Hit at Hearing – Full Sleaze Investigation Launched

It only took them two hours, but Guido hears that Portsmouth City Council misconduct hearing from self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock have decided to launch a full investigation into the MPs alleged harassment of a mentally ill constituent. As Guido reported yesterday, this could have by-election triggering consequences.  Developing…

Judgement Day for Handycock

The Tory candidate in Portsmouth South has not taken too kindly to party sources telling Guido that their local association is “broke and in complete disarray”, and that “they are proceeding with a hopeless candidate”. Flick Drummond may be tested sooner rather than later though; tomorrow is judgement day for Mike Hancock. The sleazy LibDem MP and local councillor faces a misconduct hearing at Portsmouth City Council to determine whether to launch a full investigation over his inappropriate harassment of a mentally ill constituent. If this goes badly for him and he is suspended it could trigger yet another blue on yellow by-election. Back in 2010, Guido exclusively revealed some of the texts the beardy-weirdy was sending and a full dossier of complaints was also sent to, and promptly ignored by, Clegg’s office. Hancock has been dodging the meeting for months, but will be relieved it is being held in secret without the press or public. Friends of the woman in question told the Sunday Express:

“The man needs to go. She has gone through absolute hell and all she wants is justice. She could not face seeing him at the meeting but she will be fully represented.”

As reported in yesterday’s Sun column, UKIP are looking to build on their success in Eastleigh and are already on the ground opening campaign offices and poaching respected local Tories to run the show. The LibDems may be broke, but given they control the council they will be confident of their chances. It all sounds very familiar…

Read the Full Hancock Dossier Ignored By Nick
LibDem MP Admitted Fondling Teenage Girl and Kept the Whip

The news that Mike Hancock is a sleaze-ball will not come as a surprise to regular Guido readers. We’ve been on the case of the self-confessed teen-fondler for years. Why were Nick and co not?

The evidence was always there and his pervy ways have been well documented by this website. The LibDems, even when contacted, have had their head in the sand. This dossier containing all of the text messages that Hancock sent to a vulnerable constituent was presumably put at the bottom of a pile somewhere in LibDem HQ. Hancock even went on the stand and admitted fondling a teenage girl and still managed to keep the whip. The spy saga was just the tip of the sleaze-berg.

Sick Note Handy-cock’s Strasbourg Junket

Self-confessed teen-fondler Mike Hancock is up to his old tricks again. The randy LibDem MP for Portsmouth doubles up on his expense claims by serving as a city councillor as well and it’s in that job that he is now dodging disciplinary action over allegations of impropriety. Due to face a local hearing about his inappropriate behaviour concerning a vulnerable young constituent, Hancock produced a doctor’s note saying he was too unwell to attend for at least a month.

He was not however too unwell to attend an all-expenses paid junket in Strasbourg the week before, or front up a Sunday Mirror campaign last weekend…

Hancock’s Lover Speaks Out

Guido was wondering which Sunday would get this, but it seems Russia Today have somehow scooped them:

“Are you a spy?”


“Did you have any contact with Russian security?”

“Well I explained my contact was Boris…”

Glad we cleared that one up then…

Exclusive New Pictures of Hancock and the Sexy Spy Emerge

On the day Guido brings you the news that Mike Hancock is off to his favourite country in the whole wide world, the Indy reports that the lusty LibDem, while on the Defence Select Committee, got lobbyists to bung cash to his assistant. The same one that is facing deportation for spying. And he was sleeping with. A picture of the two having late night West End cocktails has been floating around for a couple of months and today Guido can bring you two more pics, from the same night:

Staring into each others eyes, sipping red cocktails, dreaming of the motherland…

To Russia, For Love?

What would you do if you were an MP, on the Defence Select Committee, whose former aide and lover is facing deportation for spying for the Russkies, you are one of the most pro-Russian politicians in the business and you have a reputation for banging Russian women? Avoiding Russia would be pretty high on the list if you had any concern about keeping your job. But then again you’re not lusty LibDem MP Mike “Handy-cock” Hancock. Red Mike is off to Russia this weekend to “monitor their elections”. And the rest…

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.”
