Meanwhile, just to put this into perspective, Labour intolerants – sorry, ‘moderates’ – are busy attacking their own leaders.
A Conservative minister has charged taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds to stay at a private members’ club where he would meet his lover.
Robert Halfon, a minister without portfolio who attends cabinet, last week admitted to cheating on his partner after it emerged he was warned that a Tory aide was trying to blackmail him.
Halfon confessed to the affair following reports that a Tory election aide, Mark Clarke, had planned to film him leaving the East India Club in central London with the woman concerned, a Tory activist. Clarke denies the blackmail claim.
It emerged on Sunday that Halfon claimed more than £30,000 in expenses to stay at the East India Club in the four years after he was elected in 2010, receipts posted on his website show.
