A video from Britain which used to be on YouTube used to say about itself:
Tory aide accused of sexual harassment expelled from the Conservative party
18 November 2015
Mark Clarke, a senior Tory aide accused of bullying and sexual harassment, has been expelled from the party for life.
A Conservative spokesman confirmed that Mr Clarke, who ran the Team 2015 election road-trip campaign, has had his membership cancelled as a result of a number of complaints against him.
The decision means Mr Clarke can never become an MP for the party.
The party has also confirmed that the Roadtrip campaign is no longer authorised by the Conservatives.
A police investigation into Elliot Johnson’s death is ongoing.
Mr Clarke was dubbed the ‘Tatler Tory’ after being named as a rising star in the party, but he later failed to win the Tooting seat where he ran against Sadiq Khan in 2010.
He was accused of masterminding a plot to blackmail Rob Halfon, a cabinet minister, over an affair the MP had with a Conservative campaigner.
The Minister was reportedly told of an alleged plan to film him and his lover leaving a club where they regularly met, in order to blackmail him with the pictures.
It is claimed that Mr Clarke threatened to take pictures of the pair in a bid to win himself a parliamentary seat in 2020. He previously failed to win the Tooting seat during the 2010 election.
The news forced Mr Halfon, 46, to call off the affair in May. He has a long term partner but is not married.
In a statement the well-respected Conservative MP said: “What I did was wrong, and I feel ashamed. I am not proud of myself. The most important thing to me is to continue to repair my relationship with my partner.”
He [Clarke] is also alleged to have attempted to trick the young female campaigner into taking drugs so that he could take pictures and use them against her.
She has reported Mr Clarke to Tory bosses, a source told The Telegraph. Mr Clarke denies all the allegations.
In a statement the party said: “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.”
From daily The Independent in Britain today:
The father of Elliott Johnson, the Tory activist who is believed to have killed himself, said his son would still be alive if the party had acted on complains about Mark Clarke’s behaviour
4 hours ago
Grant Shapps, the Minister of State at the Department for International Development, has resigned after claims emerged he failed to act over allegations of bullying by a Tory campaigner.
The Prime Minister earlier refused to offer his full support to Mr Shapps in the wake of the bullying allegations. He told reporters a statement would be made on the former party chairman today.
The father of Elliott Johnson, the Tory activist who is believed to have killed himself, said his son would still be alive if the party had acted on complains about Mark Clarke’s behaviour.
He and the Conservative MP Ben Howlett claim successive party chairs, including Grant Shapps and the incumbent Lord Feldman, have been aware of Mr Clarke’s reputation for years.
A letter emerged, written by former party chairman Sayeeda Warsi and sent to Mr Shapps, demanding action be taken against Mr Clarke. She said she never received a “satisfactory response”.
The letter appeared to contradict the Tory party‘s claim it was unable to find records of uninvestigated complains against him.
In his letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Shapps writes: “Over the past few weeks – as individual allegations have come to light – I hvae come to the conclusion that the buck should stop with me.
“Given the very serious nature of what has subsequently occurred and my role in appointing Mr Clarke, I cannot help but conclude that the only right course of action is for me to step down as a Minister in your government.” …
It had been reported Mr Clarke attempted to obtain photos of Conservative minister Robert Halfon leaving the East India Club with a woman who was allegedly his mistress, supposedly to blackmail the minister without portfolio.
Mr Halfon, who has a long-term partner but is not married, finished the affair in May, according to The Telegraph.
Mr Shapps courted controversy during his time as Tory party chairman.
He was forced to admit he had “screwed up” over his denial that he held a second job posing as a multi-millionaire under the pseudonym Michael Green while also an MP in 2006.
