Now Lucy Allan needs to apologise for her apology

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?

Loathsome Lucy just doesn’t know when to stop digging, does she?

Having been outed as a workplace bully after she sacked an employee who was on a temporary contract – and gloated about it on the telephone to her victim – Ms Allan tendered what can only be described as a pathetic excuse for an apology – which appeared briefly on her website before being removed after only a few hours.

The BBC reports that, in a statement, the MP said: “Whilst it was certainly human to be frustrated and exasperated by Arianne [Plumbly, the sacked employee]’s conduct, it was wrong to express that frustration as I did, and I have apologised for this.”

To clarify, Ms Plumbly had been signed off work by her doctor. This is no cause for any employer to be “frustrated and exasperated”, certainly not by the conduct of a person who is officially ill.

Ms Allan stated the first she heard about her employee’s complaint was when the ‘bullying’ allegations appeared in the media. She stated that this was inappropriate as an employee should attempt to sort out problems with an employer first.

That’s all very well, but we’ve all heard Loathsome Lucy’s phone message to Ms Plumbly, haven’t we? After a call like that, would anybody want to have contact with such a person again? Of course not.

It was also alleged that Ms Plumbly had made a complaint to the Conservative Party. Interestingly, rather than handle this complaint in a reasonable manner, the Tories appear to have threatened her with a gagging order. Perhaps the fear of such behaviour from Loathsome Lucy was another reason Ms Plumbly didn’t want anything to do with her.

The fact that the Conservative Party itself behaved in a manner falling well below the standards to be expected of it merely demonstrates its own failings – and tells us much about the Tory attitude to employment.

All of the MP’s claims – the most pertinent of which were allegations that her former employee had not kept in touch regarding medical issues – have been denied by Ms Plumbly herself.

It seems clear that Loathsome Lucy is nothing more than a typical sleaze-ridden Tory snake who will do everything possible to slither out of a bad situation, while retaining her hold on what little power she has.

It seems many people have already called for her to resign in disgrace, and there is already a petition on, calling for her resignation after she faked an emailed death threat over the vote on air strikes in Syria.

With the Conservative Government having shelved a Parliamentary Bill giving voters the power to remove their MP – perhaps corruptly, given the conduct of Loathsome Lucy? – it seems the only way to get rid of this creature is to force her out by making her position untenable.

That would be a job for her constituents – the people of Telford.

Are you up for it, Telford?

    I understand that Lucy has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the faking of the email death threat, however I’ve also heard the recorded conversation between Lucy and Plumby, and have to say, did she really need to go through all that? She could of just gone through all the usual legal processes in order to just get rid of her? Lucy certainly does seem to come across as the kind of boss that no one would really want as a boss, certainly not me anyway…..

      No – the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards has refused to investigate the fake death threat, but that’s not the same as saying she has been cleared of any wrongdoing. She quite clearly and blatantly faked a death threat, as has been demonstrated by the person she libelled by her action. Unfortunately, it seems that person does not wish to take civil action against her.

        Ah!, thanks for correcting me on that one Mike, I didn’t realise that they’d actually refused to investigate. However, as far as the death threat goes, I’m not trying to excuse her here, but how do you know she ‘clearly and blatantly’ faked it? Is it not possible that it could have been a copy and paste job that just went wrong somehow?, and she didn’t realise until after the event? I admit that that might be a bit far fetched, but I had considered that possibility before.

          We can see that this is not what happened because of her attempt to justify what she had done. She doesn’t suggest anywhere that she made any mistakes, and her claims are very clear. Meanwhile, the person who sent the original email provided a copy of it to the news media (which This Blog reproduced) showing that it did not contain any death threats at all.
          I don’t think any evidence has been shown regarding the “Unless you die” comment that was pasted into it. Does anybody know if an original email including that line has been produced by Ms Allan or anyone else?

    Politicians remind me of the French aristocracy before the revolution.

    What a shame you spoil your story on Lucy Allan and whether she is a bully by calling her names e.g. Loathsome Lucy. You have now sunk to the levels we are trying to rise above. I shall not therefore continue subscribing.

      In that case, I’ll carry on calling her anything I like.

        Mike, Its a good job you did not call her a C…. LOL

          If I understand you correctly, that’s hardly likely (no gross profanity on Vox Political)!
