David Warburton suspended by Tories for alleged sexual harassment and drug use

Photographic evidence? Suspended Tory MP David Warburton is pictured next to what appears to be lines of cocaine. If all is as it seems, he could be in serious trouble.

Did the people of Somerton and Frome elect a sex-crazed drugs beast to be their MP?

Well, we don’t know yet because an investigation has yet to happen.

Here’s what we’re all hearing, though:

David Warburton… is understood to be facing allegations from three women, while a photo has emerged of the MP allegedly sitting alongside lines of cocaine. The picture of Warburton… is said to date from February. It is claimed it was taken at the home of a younger woman who he met through politics.

Accusations from two other women have been handed to the new parliamentary harassment watchdog, the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS). A spokesperson on behalf of the whips’ office said: “David Warburton MP has had the Conservative party whip removed while the investigation is ongoing.”

Warburton, 56, is a married father of two and former businessman. It is alleged … that he asked for the drug to be purchased, before saying the price was “quite good actually”. The woman involved claimed she had been drunk, but began to feel uncomfortable about being alone with the MP as she became less intoxicated. She said that she retreated to her bedroom, but that he climbed into bed with her, naked.

She said she did not ask him to leave or push him away because she was fearful about how he might react. She said she gave repeated warnings that she did not want to have sex with him, but alleged that he ground his body against her and groped her breasts. The woman is said not to have made a complaint to the police or any other authority, saying she wanted to forget about the incident.

The MP has previously condemned the exploitation of young people involved in the drugs trade, including the “intimidation, violence and criminal incentives” involved.

It must be remembered that these are only allegations.

If they turn out to be accurate, though, we may be looking at another by-election to replace a disgraced Tory.

Watch this space.

    I remember seeing the photos of Osborne with alleged cocaine and alleged prostitutes….why was he not suspended or investigated?

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      Because he was the Chancellor of the Exchequer and cabinet ministers are (almost) always immune from criminal prosecution?

        are they actually protected because of some specific law though on that? Must be the same reason why necrophilia and beastiality charges were never brought against Cameron.
