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.
