Tory angers voters by attacking mum of disabled child

Monday 5th June 2017

Ex-Conservative supporter left shaken after abuse from candidate

A TORY candidate came under fire yesterday from his own constituents after he verbally attacked a mum of a disabled child who challenged him over government cuts.

Millionaire Jonathan Djanogly launched the astonishing tirade against the former Tory supporter during a parliamentary hustings in Cambridgeshire.

Emma Bail, who said she was attending her first ever political meeting, raised concerns over “damaging cuts” that mean preschool-age children with disabilities are limited to only 15 hours of support at nursery.

She said this meant that disabled children were excluded from nursery and their parents were being “pushed onto benefits.”

Instead of addressing her worries, Mr Djanogly berated her and accused her of being a Labour activist.

Ms Bail explained: “Mr Djanogly, in front of a room full of people, suggested I wasn’t telling the truth and that he had responded to me and branded me an ‘activist’ in an attempt to discredit me.

“I’m not an ‘activist.’ I’m a mum so frightened about my children’s future I feel compelled to speak out. I actually voted for Mr Djanogly last time.”

She added: “[The hustings] was the first time I have ever attended an event like that. As I spoke I was shaking like a leaf and had my dad and husband with me for support — not very activisty.”

A friend of Ms Bail’s alleged yesterday that she had received a message from Mr Djanogly’s agent Ryan Fuller suggesting they were taking further action.

Mr Fuller wrote: “Should you continue to make false statements about Mr Djanogly, you will be reported to the police as I have previously warned.”

Ms Bail confirmed she has not received any communication from the MP or his agent.

Locals of the constituency he is standing in have alleged that they have been subjected to threats and intimidation by other politicians in an attempt to silence them.

An activist — who said Mr Djanogly was “vile and odious” — claimed that he was being blackmailed by another local politician who threatened to send compromising photographs of him to the newspapers.

He alleged on Facebook: “They are all nasty … I’m a gay guy and the person who blackmailed me is also gay?!”

The Star contacted Mr Djanogly’s office for comment, but received none at time of going to press.

    A JEREMY CORBYN supporter claims she had her benefits stopped after it was “maliciously” reported to the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) that she runs a blog which accepts donations, the Star learned yesterday.

    The blogger, who wishes only to be known as her Twitter handle @Rachael_Swindon, was reported in relation to the use of a PayPal link.

    The full-time mum-of-two cares for her disabled husband and the family had been receiving employment support allowance (ESA) and personal independence payment.

    In her blog she highlights failings made by the Conservatives and regularly names and shames the MPs who voted in favour of ESA cuts.

    Left-wing blog the Skawkbox called the sanction a “malicious attack on a pro-Corbyn campaigner” and branded the person who reported Rachael a “slimebag.”

    Rachael told the Star yesterday: “When the DWP stopped our money, it left me feeling so desperate.

    “Up until my husband got ill I had never got benefits before. We had a home, our own business. We lost everything.

    “The DWP are now going to reinstate our money — with no back pay, though. They have no thought of how it affects people when they put such sanctions on.

    “When you wake up every day and worry about how you will feed your family, you know you have a problem.”

    A spokesman for the DWP told the Star: “If someone has an income coming in, it needs to be declared and could affect the level of benefits received.”

    He did not define the term “income” or at what level it would begin.

    Rachael said she is being forced to hand over donations to the DWP as “over-payment” and said she felt like she was “living in limbo.”
