LISTEN: Shocking Bullying Tape of Tory MP Lucy Allan

lucy-allan-front-page

Tory MP Lucy Allan, who is already under pressure after making up a death threat, is now accused of bullying several staff members in tonight’s sensational Standard splash. They have a tape of Allan screaming and swearing at a staff member, mocking her and threatening her:

“Listen — if you think you’re going to be clever Arianne you are going to come off worse. Please believe me. If you think you are going to be clever you are going to come off worse.

“I’m advising you to work as normal or resign. We all know you’re not ill. We’ve seen a pattern of it. You’ve taken three days off once a month for four months.”

“You don’t not turn up for nausea. What planet are you on. I’m sorry, “gum disappointments” or whatever you say — you just don’t not turn up for that.”

“By the way, if you think you can go to some sort of tribunal — you’ve got to think about your benefits here Arianne.”

“I actually have a life too, okay? And you have pissed, pissed around on my life. You’ve made it incredibly difficult.”

Former staff Katie Woodland goes on the record:

“She would scream, shout, throw her toys out of the pram, have a full-on two-year-old’s tantrum. You couldn’t have a conversation with her. She’d stand, fists clenched and barrage you with viciousness. If you are looking at a definition of bullying, she ticks all the boxes.”

Given how badly the Tories handled the Mark Clarke scandal, will they act swiftly to deal with Allan?

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
