Third Time Unlucky For Hancock

Weirdy-beardy LibDem MP and coalition critic Mike Hancock has never been far from controversy involving his sex life, and this weekend was no different. Hancock has done well in recent months to keep certain stories about him out of the media.  Carmen the busty señorita he wined, dined and even gave a personal tour of the House of Commons never surfaced and Hancock’s re-election campaign in Portsmouth was blighted with much darker allegations that were injuncted. However this time there was nothing Hancock could do to stop being splashed across the Sunday papers again – mainly because he admitted the allegations put to him.

Hancock has not denied he pestered a mentally ill constituent who came to him for help. He dined with her in the House, bought her a teddy bear and other gifts and pestered her with “sexy” text messages. He claims her was just trying to “cheer her up” but the woman’s carers have reported him to the police, who are now investigating. Given his track record it’s unlikely Hancock’s long suffering wife will buy that line…

On the back of the scandal that he had employed a researcher who has links to the KGB, the knives are sharpening around Hancock. Guido spoke to a senior council source down in Porstmouth who is fuming about the lastest embarrassment Hancock has caused:

“The pressure is mounting on Hancock. There have been many rumours about him swirling around Portsmouth and Westminster for years, but this latest news is particularly worrying. It is not acceptable for him to remain in a Cabinet role on Portsmouth City Council – where he has influence over policy regarding care for the vulnerable – at a time when the police are investigating him for allegedly abusing a vulnerable constituent. Whether he should remain an MP is a matter for the Liberal Democrats, and his conscience.”

Looks like Hancock might be waiting a little longer for his long-coveted title Lord Hancock of Fratton…

Dominic Cummings tells Damian Collins:

“You talk of ‘contempt of Parliament’. You seem unaware that most of the country feels contempt for Parliament and this contempt is growing.”
