Revealed: Andrew Feldman campaigned with Tatler Tory Mark Clarke
Party Chairman Andrew Feldman campaigned and posed for photographs with controversial Tory Mark Clarke. Conservative Party engulfed in allegations of sexual abuse, suicide, molestation, blackmail and a cover-up
Conservative Party Chairman Andrew Feldman is facing fresh questions after a photograph emerged proving he campaigned with Mark Clarke, the head of the Tory Road Trip campaign, The Commentator can reveal.
The news comes following Feldman’s denial that he was aware Clarke had dozens of complaints against him for sexual assault and harassment. A formal CCHQ statement said, “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.”
But his version of events were contradicted by Ben Howlett MP who told the BBC Newsnight programme, “We’ve complained about him for a long period of time… complained when I was national chairman directly to Sayeeda Warsi as the party chairman, I complained directly to the chairman’s office when Grant Shapps took over as the party chairman, and I have to say Lord Feldman has been well aware of all of this for a very long period of time.”
Clarke was banned for life from the Conservative Party following the suicide of 21-year old Elliott Johnson who claimed he was being bullied. It also emerged this morning that Clarke, who denies the allegations of wrongdoing, had a sexual relationship with Cabinet Minister Justine Greening.
