"Handycock" Faces Probing

Guido understands that official complaints have gone in against LibDem letch Mike Hancock MP. Portsmouth co-conspirators are talking openly locally about their “sex pest MP”. As regular readers will know, during the election Hancock got an injunction to stop his opponent Les Cummings from printing leaflets in which he made serious allegations of sexual misbehaviour against the MP. Given Hancock discontinued his action last week and ended up paying costs, there are those that are expecting this story to go nuclear imminently as Cummings returns to his keyboard…

This month has seen allegations that Hancock attempted to seduce a mentally ill constituent, wining and dining her in the Commons and bombarding her with gifts and racy text messages. Guido understands that Hancock has this morning been  reported to the local authority by horrified fellow councillors, and to the Parliamentary Standard’s Commissioner by fellow MPs. The gist of the complaint seems to be:

“Failing to treat people with respect and conducting himself in a manner which could reasonably be regarded as bringing his office or his authority into disrepute and using his position as a member to improperly secure for himself, or any other person, an advantage.”

Guido understands the texts messages are hugely humiliating for the Honourable Member and could be set to emerge in full this weekend…

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
