Reports: Mike Hancock Suspended as LibDem Councillor

Following Guido’s story this morning, it is being reported down in Portsmouth that:

Another LibDem perv bites the dust. But why has it taken this long, Nick?

UPDATE:

The Mike Hancock Report that the LibDems Hid

The LibDems have been trying to squash the Mike Hancock scandal for years. The accusation that he took advantage of disabled constituent is far more serious than anything said about Rennard. The transparency-loving LibDems yesterday blocked an attempt to release the damning report into the sleazy Portsmouth MP. So in the interest of openness, here it is:

Read the Pascoe Report into Mike Hancock here.

Once again, the LibDems have to be forced into confronting sexual harassment of women by their pervy politicians…

UPDATE: Some of the allegations against Hancock:

  • Told constituent “women had bucket crotches after hysterectomies”. Asked to be “first to road test it”.
  • Hancock “started rubbing himself” begging for “a quick w*nk and said he wasn’t very big. I picked up guitar to distract him”.
  • Hancock said he could not leave constituent’s house because “I have a peg leg and it won’t go down”
  • Hancock to ill female constituent: “You have one of those faces. You have a f**k face.”
  • “He knew I was sexually abused as a child and he asked me what sex was like with previous partners. I asked him to stop. He wouldn’t stop.”

Dark.

Yeo: Judge Me By My Record

Tim Yeo grimaced his way through an interview on the BBC News channel this morning, saying through gritted teeth that he was “quite happy to be judged on my record”. Worth taking a look at his career highlights then:

  • Forced to resign in disgrace in 1994 over a second love-child scandal, this time with a Conservative councillor, after he had told constituents: “It is in everyone’s interests to reduce broken families and the number of single parents. I have seen from my own constituency the consequences of marital breakdown.”
  • Failed in his bid to become Tory leader.
  • Golfing correspondent for Country Life and the Financial Times.
  • Became chairman of the Energy and Climate Change select committee despite company directorships at energy firms TMO Renewables, AFC Energy and ITI Energy, lobbying the government on green energy policy while earning thousands each month from green energy companies.
  • Hosted events on the Parliamentary Estate for green investments firms without properly declaring interests and refused to say if he took  a cut:
  • Exposed by an undercover Sunday Times investigation offering to coach an energy company boss for an appearance before his committee.
  • Spends all his time playing golf, ignoring his constituents in South Suffolk.

Judge away…

Rennard Victim Says No Legal Action After Apology
LibDem Lord Compares Row to Apartheid

After ten years of cover ups and lies, Ming Campbell told the Daily Politics that now was the time for ‘period of calm reflection’. Meanwhile Lord Greaves went all crackers and compared the situation to Apartheid and the Troubles, suggesting that if Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley could reconcile, so could the two camps in this fight. As the unelected male peers and greybeard former leaders slog it out on the airwaves, one person this story is really about has quietly holed Rennard’s excuse for not apologising beneath the waterline:

So that clears that obstacle. Over to you Chris…

UPDATE: Another Rennard victim, Susan Gaszczak, just told Sky News: “An acknowledgement and an apology is all I want, and this will all go away.” 

FLASHBACK: Clegg Slams Rennard ‘Self Appointed Detectives’

By playing the innocent victim, with his hands tied by his party bureaucracy, Nick Clegg is re-writing history.

He may well be impotent today, but let us not forget Clegg slammed those who exposed Lord Rennard’s pervy ways, calling them ‘self-appointed detectives’:

The LibDems have a track record here. Rennard is no where near a one off example – just look at Portsmouth.

Guy News Special Report: Tim Yeo Must Go

Quote of the Day

LibDem MEP Chris Davies doesn’t really get it:

“A good man has been publicly destroyed through the media with the apparent support of Nick Clegg. It is completely out of proportion, nonsense and outrageous.This isn’t Jimmy Savile. This is touching someone’s leg six years ago at a meeting through clothing. This is the equivalent of a few years ago an Italian man pinching a woman’s bottom. How much more must this man be made to suffer through the media condemnation that comes out day after day fed by the party leadership? I’ve known Chris since he was 17, his wife for about the same time… I can’t believe how much they’ve suffered in the past year. And these people just want to go on and on. For what? I mean haven’t they had their pound of flesh?”

Gray Area in Double Claiming Tory MP’s Expenses Excuses

Fighting talk from Tory MP James Gray, beaten up in the Mirror and his local paper following Guido’s investigation into his expenses yesterday. Gray has given a denial to another more friendly local outlet which, shockingly, is riddled with untruths. Regarding his publicly-disclosed office at his local Conservative Association, Gray claims:

“I am a local MP and I am part of the local Conservative Party, but in terms of my office it’s not there at all. That’s something I did many years ago. I gave up using the Conservative Party offices and thought it would be better to hire a local office which was totally approved by the authorities. He seems to think I have two offices, which I don’t.”

This is untrue; Gray does have two offices. IPSA have confirmed to Guido that his second Conservative Association office is the only office address and telephone number in the public domain. They say the address and telephone number of his real office – the one he claims for – is kept secret for his own security. Gray’s Association told Guido that he couldn’t contact the real office directly and that he would have to go through them. He says he does not have two offices – he patently does – three if you include his Westminster office.

“It’s a snide instigation that I have a special relationship with the Fuller family. First of all they haven’t made any donations.”

This is untrue. Electoral Commission records show that Fuller, his family and companies have made a grand total of ten donations to Gray and the Tories, totalling over £20,000.

“The only thing I can track down is 13 or 14 years ago when the current landlord’s grandmother donated to my party.”

Electoral Commission records show that this donation was received just over 6 years ago…

Another Tim Yeo Lobbying Scandal

Scrapbook have got hold of a letter sent on behalf of Tim Yeo to all members of South Suffolk Conservative Association, begging them not to deselect the poor hard done by lamb:

Not only do the rules state that campaigning is not allowed, how did Sir Kenneth Carlile get hold of the addresses of all the members? Guido has a surprise for troubled Tim later…

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
