Good for the Johnson family.

No doubt the Tories hoped that they would accept the summary of the Conservative Party report on bullying – but Ray and Alison Johnson are refusing to go away.

What will the Tories try next – an offer of money? Possibly – but what good will that do? The deceased is Mr and Mrs Johnson’s son, and money is unlikely to move them.

It seems unlikely they will ever willingly release the details of the report prepared for them by the Clifford Chance law firm.

We can only wonder why not. What does it contain?

The parents of political activist Elliott Johnson have, on the first anniversary of their son’s death, accused the Conservative party of concealing the circumstances leading up to his suicide.

In a letter sent to the Tory chairman, Patrick McLoughlin, Johnson’s father, Ray, calls for the Conservatives to release in full the findings of a report on allegations of bullying within the party.

Although a summary has been issued, McLoughlin has refused to make public the complete findings of the inquiry, on the grounds of protecting witness anonymity. But Johnson’s family do not accept this and have accused the chairman of a “blanket suppression of key evidence”.
