Boris Johnson isn’t the only Tory in trouble for breaking the rules

Daniel Kawczynski: this was his justification for bullying his staff.

Here’s Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham:

Conservative MP Daniel Kawczynski is facing a one-day suspension from the Commons after being found to have broken the rules over an apology he gave for bullying parliamentary staff.

So, not only was he found guilty of bullying his own staff – he has now been found guilty of breaking the rules for apologising about it!

The recommendation has been made by the Commons Standards Committee and follows comments the MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham made before he said sorry last June.

The committee ruled that interviews he gave on local radio and with a newspaper before the required apology in the Commons chamber meant he had failed to comply, as the apology was not “unequivocal”.

In its report, the committee said: “Although he says he was sincere by the time he made the apology to the House, he had that morning effectively undermined the sincerity of that apology by broadcasting the fact that he was making it because he was required to do so and he disagreed with the way the case had been conducted.

I wonder if he expected the government to change the rules for him, as it tried to do for his former North Shropshire colleague, Owen Paterson?

Tory Kawczynski faces second probe into his behaviour as an MP

Well, he was last time. What will be Daniel Kawczynski’s excuse if he’s found guilty of the latest accusations against him?

Daniel Kawczynski is under investigation – again – by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards over “actions causing significant damage to the reputation of the House as a whole, or of its Members generally”.

This comes after he was found to have drunkenly bullied civil servants over an IT issue.

He was ordered to apologise, which seemed a shockingly lenient punishment for a man who is a serial offender, as This Site described in a previous article.

I wonder how voters in Shrewsbury feel about their disgrace of a Parliamentary representative.

Details of the new accusations are not clear at the moment, but bringing the House of Commons into disrepute is a serious charge against members.

What will he get if found guilty this time – a slap on the wrist?

Tory Kawczynski apologises for drunken bullying – but this is not his first offence. Shouldn’t he resign?

Why is Daniel Kawczynski being allowed to get off with an apology after he drunkenly bullied civil servants over an IT issue?

He should be facing investigation with a view to demanding his resignation from Parliament. Right?

It’s not even his first bullying offence.

Kawczynski was forced to apologise, according to the BBC, after IT issues made it impossible for him to take part in discussions of a Parliamentary committee.

The independent report into his conduct said Mr Kawczynski had “repeatedly” contacted one of the complainants through the day on his personal mobile, and was “repeatedly aggressive, rude and impatient”.

As the day went on, it became clear he had consumed alcohol, it added.

Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards Kathryn Stone said Mr Kawczynski had also made “critical and untruthful comments” on a WhatsApp group shared with other committee members.

He got drunk, bullied one of the civil servants who had tried to help him, and lied about both of them to his colleagues.

And the only reason he apologised was because a second panel set up to determine what punishment he should accept told him to do so, after he had appealed against the (identical) decision of the first.

This is the bully who, in 2018, threatened legal action against an editor of the BBC’s Newsnight, Ian Katz, who had suggested that his defence of Saudi Arabia’s war of annihilation in Yemen might be linked to the size of his expenses budget whenever he took trips to that country.

In March 2020, tweeted support for his fellow Tory bully, Home Secretary Priti Patel, who was later found guilty of bullying civil servants by a Cabinet Office inquiry but went unpunished because Boris Johnson refused to accept the decision.

Perhaps he thought that, if she could get away with it, he could?

He is the entitled Tory bully who wanted to override the will of the Welsh people – and abolish the Welsh Assembly and its government – so he could visit the beach.

Wales has different Covid-19-related restrictions and at the time – May 2020 – these included a ban on people crossing the border from England.

The incident marked Kawczynski out as a fool because his nearest beach isn’t in Wales – it’s in the Wirral.

Then in December of 2020, he refused to make another Newsnight appearance for fear of “bullying” behaviour by presenter Emily Maitlis.

What a double-standard. He was happy to support the bully Priti Patel but changed his tune sharply when facing the prospect of being bullied himself.

And now this. And I haven’t even mentioned his other offences and alleged indiscretions.

Just to quote one example, in February 2020, he received a formal warning and reprimand from the Conservative Party – but did not have the whip withdrawn – after he shared a platform with right-wing populist politicians such as Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán and the former deputy prime minister of Italy Matteo Salvini.

He’s a serial offender. And his excuse for the latest was that he was drunk?

I should bleedin’ cocoa!

Shrewsbury Tory Kawczynski is like the tell-tale at school – flings accusations around then runs like fun

Daniel Kawczynski: apparently he’s scared of being bullied by anyone. How did he get to be an MP?

What a strange creature Daniel Kawczynski is.

It seems he has refused a chance to appear on the BBC’s Newsnight because he is afraid that presenter Emily Maitlis will bully him.

Notice that Liam (above) points out that Kawczynski can’t recognise a bully when he’s working with one; Priti Patel was found to be a bully by a Cabinet Office inquiry but this is what he had to say about her when the allegations were made, in March:

It gets worse. After running away from Maitlis, cowardly Kawczynsi ran away from his own public – first by switching off replies to his tweet, so he wouldn’t have to field criticism, and then by deleting the tweet altogether:

Fat lot of good it did him. Look how many times it has been reproduced in this article alone!

Finally, it seems Kawczynski is an old hand when it comes to accusations against Newsnight:

It seems he only considered taking action, mind.

Kawczynski’s grudge against Newsnight and Maitlis goes back a long way – look it up with your favourite search engine.

He really does seem to have an axe to grind…

And absolutely no sense of judgement about where to swing it.
