Fake death threat Tory MP Lucy Allan sparks new bullying scandal

It seems all the available photos of Lucy Allan show her smiling. Perhaps she is gloating over her latest displays of loathsomeness. What do the people of Telford think?

It seems all the available photos of Lucy Allan show her smiling. Perhaps she is gloating over her latest displays of loathsomeness. What do the people of Telford think?

It’s all gone wrong very quickly for Telford’s evil Tory MP Lucy Allan. She was only elected in May and already she has faked a death threat and has now been found to have threatened a member of staff with the sack – for taking sick leave under the advice of a doctor.

It seems Loathsome Lucy has followed through on her threats, as she has admitted dismissing her victim, Arianne Plumbly.

This Writer likes the comment by fellow blogger Tom Pride, who pointed out that this scandal has broken as “new research shows that 14 million people faced debt problems in the last year, directly related to the fact they are on temporary, part-time or zero hours contracts:
◾1.26 million people now are forced to work part time because they can’t get a full time job
◾565,000 work a temporary job because they can’t get a permanent job
◾790,000 people now are forced to work on zero hour contracts as their main job

“And the Tories claim to be on the side of working people.”

What’s the betting that the people of Telford are wishing the Conservatives had not shelved – indefinitely – their plans for a new law allowing the recall of MPs whose behaviour has fallen below the standard expected of them?

Perhaps they should launch a campaign for Ms Allan to do the decent thing and, metaphorically, fall on her sword.

Or would that merely prompt another silly faked death threat?

The Tory MP who “faked” a death threat has been accused of threatening to sack a member of staff if she took four weeks off work sick – as advised by her doctor.

In a fresh bullying scandal to hit the Conservative party, Telford MP Lucy Allan was accused of launching a “vicious” verbal attack on a female staff member who phoned in sick.

Ms Allan accused the alleged bullying victim Arianne Plumbly of having an “alcohol problem,” dismissing her claims to be ill as “pathetic”.

In a recording of the telephone call handed to the Evening Standard, Ms Allan is heard telling the alleged bullying target Arianne Plumbly: “I’m not paying you for that then; it’s ridiculous” and told her she had “pissed around on my life”.

It was not the first instance of aggressive behaviour from Ms Allan, according to ex staffers who told the Evening Standard that at least two complaints about her conduct had been made to Conservative HQ.

But neither of the two complaints were properly acted upon by the party, they said.

It is the latest allegation of bullying to hit the party, following the unconnected case of the young Conservative activists Elliott Johnson, who committed suicide and left a note blaming his death on Mark Clarke, the former head of the party’s youth campaign who has since been expelled by the Tories and banned for life.

In a written response to the Evening Standard Ms Allan said: “Arianne Plumbly was dismissed from her employment with Lucy Allan, MP in Telford, after four months’ employment, for gross misconduct following misuse of the Parliamentary email system, persistent unauthorised absenteeism, refusal to follow a reasonable instruction and rudeness to residents.”

Earlier this month Ms Allan admitted adding a “death threat” to a Facebook post designed to expose the “unacceptable” abuse she received after voting in favour of air strikes in Syria.

    Tory reasoning: Only people on a permanent contract can be ill, therefore get rid of permanent contracts and no one will ever be ill again.

    A thoroughly nasty and dishonest piece of work, in fact a typical Tory.

    2.6 million in either part-time, zero hours or temporary work because they can’t get full time? Along with the number of people sanctioned on benefits who are taken off the unemployment register each month, it’s no wonder the figure for unemployment does not reflect the true nature of Conservatives statistical rigging and show how many the Tories have left behind in their wake of job destruction and low waged economy.
    As for the bullying and the wasting of police time, I’m sure Cameron and PM hopeful Osborne will find some excuse for her rancid behaviour.

    Yes her mug shot says it all…somehow this site seems to be able to pick the most appropriate pics for the subject matter. It’s ok to photoshop horns on their heads… but just for the regular favourites….

    Victorian “values” seem to be in vogue under these pitiful apologies for human beings. Perhaps it is a “cunning strategy”. If most people end up on zero hours contracts then sickness will be history and therefore we don’t need so many doctors so the NHS can save more money.Simple.
