Is this how Cameron has exerted his power – using Mark Clarke to remove potential threats?

David Cameron with Liam Walker: Walker embarrassed Cameron with a Tweet about food bank users, so it seems Cameron had alleged bully Mark Clarke trump up a complaint to block Walker’s ambitions.

The Tories have tried to avoid this for two weeks since Grant Shapps was forced to resign – but at last the Tory bullying scandal has reached David Cameron’s door.

Evidence has emerged that Cameron asked then-Conservative co-chair Grant Shapps’ office to find a way of eliminating Liam Walker – a campaigner in Cameron’s own Witney constituency – after he made an embarrassing comment about food bank users.

Walker, who had an ambition to become chairman of the Tory Party’s youth wing, had Tweeted that he had seen some “food bank users” in the pubs of Witney, at a time when the rising use of food banks was a possibly election-losing issue.

It seems Mark Clarke, the man allegedly behind the bullying scandal that led to the death of another activist, was told to write a complaint about Mr Walker’s words.

Mr Clarke has denied the previous allegations against him but, now it seems he has been directly linked to David Cameron, it looks like being a bleak Christmas for the PR prime minister.

Labour have demanded an inquiry after it emerged David Cameron’s taxpayer-funded advisers plotted to block the career of a young Tory activist who embarrassed him.

Ex-party Chairman Grant Shapps ‘ office had Tatler Tory Mark Clarke put pressure on 25-year-old Liam Walker to halt his leadership ambitions.

Mr Clarke filed a complaint about his conduct to give senior figures an excuse to boot him from the party.

The involvement of Mr Clarke in the plot brings the bullying scandal engulfing the party to the doorstep of No 10 for the first time.

    It appears there is no limits this creature will go to, I am pretty sure this issue will be fudged or even ignored.

    This being will go down in history as the worst PM we have ever had, however it won’t bother him, he thinks he is untouchable.

    I guess no one can deal with any issue when clearly their heads are stuck up where the sun does not shine…..

    Everything should end up on Cameron’s doorstep. In this case, the cover up has gone pear shaped and it is now in the open.

    With Xmas intervening and Parliament closed for business, I don’t expect there to be much traction on it. Lord Whassisname the Party Chairman seems to have slipped through the net now so tennis matches can be organised again.

    Camoron is just your typical spoilt, little, rich boy who if doesn’t get his own way throws a massive tantrum, they’re all pampered man babies, especially this bunch that’s in power, he’ll get what he wants, as per usual!
