Hancock Tries to Dodge Portsmouth Investigation

Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock is trying all the tricks in the book to get out of giving evidence to the Portsmouth City Council investigation into his conduct. He says he won’t talk until after his High Court case is over. The lawyers’ fees are clearly hitting Hancock hard in the pocket:

“This is the advice I have been given by my barrister. And you don’t pay for expensive legal advice only to ignore it. I will fully co-operate with the council, I have no problem whatsoever, but my barrister’s advice is not to do that until after the High Court.”

Well he wouldn’t want to risk saying anything silly, would he?

LibDems Urged to Head to Portsmouth for “Stimulating Activity”

An appealing invitation from Mike Hancock’s backyard. Local LibDems in Portsmouth are mobilising this weekend. “Stimulating activity” all round:

“Activists will gather from across the region for free food, invigorating campaigning and stimulating company. You can come for as much or as little of the day as you like. We want to make the day a great experience for you, with lots of stimulating activity that best uses your skills.”

Handycock’s troops preparing for a by-election?

Mike Hancock Resigns LibDem Whip

Following our meeting today I have decided to offer to temporarily withdraw from the parliamentary party in the Commons until the civil court case against me has been concluded.

I can assure you that I will continue to vigorously defend my position and that I completely refute the allegations made against me.

I’m doing this in the best interests of the party nationally and in Portsmouth and for my family. 

I will continue to work hard for my constituents in Portsmouth as I have always done.

Mike Hancock MP

He says he’ll be back. Good luck with that.

Hancock Meeting Monday Afternoon

Clegg Could Be Called to Give Evidence in Handycock Case

As Sky News’ Amber Elliott points out, the LibDems’ own rules say that “during the course of the Disciplinary Procedure, the person being complained against may be suspended from membership of the Party”. This is expected to happen later today. Fresh from the Rennard scandal, Clegg cannot be seen to dither on this one, though it’s too late for that. These allegations have been circulating for years and Clegg’s office were notified about them directly, as Guido revealed in February.

So why so keen to act all of a sudden?

Well a source familiar with the High Court action against the MP suggests that “LibDem leaders, past and present, could well be called to give evidence” in the upcoming civil case. Why Clegg ignored this dossier, and why the Leader of Portsmouth Council dismissed the allegations as “political” might well be of interest to the judge. Would give a new meaning to Call Clegg…

High Court High Noon For Hancock LibDem Statement in Full

“Following Mike Hancock’s receipt of legal papers in a High Court civil action, Nick Clegg has asked the Chief Whip to convene an urgent meeting under the disciplinary procedures of the parliamentary party between Nick Clegg, Simon Hughes, the Chief Whip and Mike Hancock. 

Mike Hancock strenuously denies the accusations made in the civil action. We are not prejudging the outcome of the case, but given the seriousness of the allegations, Nick Clegg has instructed the Chief Whip to invoke the disciplinary procedures of the party.”

He says he won’t jump before he’s pushed…

Farage Confirms Hancock By-Election Plan

A month ago in his Sun column Guido revealed that UKIP are already up and running on the ground in Portsmouth South in anticipation that self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock will be forced out, triggering a by-election. Today Farage has confirmed he is predicting a by-election this summer, telling a press gallery lunch that he thinks UKIP will win. Dave will note the several Tory MPs quaffing Merlot with the hack pack as Farage confessed he had been a frequenter of lap-dancing establishments, laid into Leveson and endorsed Gove for PM. He knows his audience

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
