Wally of the Week: Mark Clarke

Former Conservative activist Mark Clarke is nothing but a nasty piece of work and it is right that he has been expelled

 

“Tory election guru” Mark Clarke isn’t just a wally. He’s also a bully and he’s also rightly now been expelled by the political party he caused havoc in for over five years.

Accused of sexually molesting women and bullying fellow activists, the Conservative Party issued the following statement in relation to Clarke last night:

 

“In the light of information that has come to our knowledge this week, Mark Clarke’s membership of the Conservative Party has been cancelled for life.  This means he cannot be a candidate or represent the Party in any way”.

 

“Mark Clarke’s Party membership was suspended in September 2015, following allegations of bullying and inappropriate behaviour”.

 

“The Party does not tolerate bullying or any other improper behaviour.  Lord Feldman acted immediately to set up an internal disciplinary inquiry as soon as he received the allegations in August 2015, of which he was previously wholly unaware”.

 

“Furthermore the Party’s lawyers and the Party Board’s disciplinary committee will continue to investigate complaints received in relations to Roadtrip2015.  Also, it is confirmed that Roadtrip is no longer authorised as a campaigning entity for the Conservative Party”.

 

“Going forward, we will ensure that all groups affiliated to the Conservative Party formally adopt the harassment and anti-bullying policy of CCHQ, as contained in the staff handbook”.

 

“The Party will continue to make available on an ongoing basis to all Party members and activists the counselling service provided by Westfield Health”.

 

The Conservatives have finally chosen the right path in relation to dealing with this loathsome creature. May they continue on it and may this nasty piece of work now simply fade into obscurity.

  1. “The Party will continue to make available on an ongoing basis to all Party members and activists the counselling service provided by Westfield Health”.
    What the hell is this all about? Therapy? You could not make it up

  2. Going forward and going Tonto – having seen the images in today’s Mail of this chap Clarke in his top hat, maybe he will now have time to address his sartorial issues

    The Conservative Party will have to make time to address their loose canon issues
