Tory MPs share doctored video of Starmer in abortive smear attempt

Here’s another tweet by ‘Mad Nad’ Nadine Dorries – which she could now more accurately use to describe herself.

Health minister Nadine Dorries, former Tory vice-chair Maria Caulfield and Lucy Allan have made an abortive attempt to discredit Labour leader Keir Starmer by sharing a misleading video created by far-right activists.

They quote-tweeted a video post that claimed to show Starmer explaining “why he didn’t prosecute grooming gangs”, when in fact he was explaining why he implemented reforms as the Director of Public Prosecutions.

A Labour source said: “This is a doctored video tweeted by far-right social media account. As a government minister, we hope Nadine Dorries acknowledges this and takes it down.”

Dorries and Allan have now deleted their posts, while Caulfield has deleted her Twitter account.

But the real question is how the three Tory MPs obtained the video in the first place: the original Twitter user – whose account is now deleted – has previously shared racist content.

The trio’s decision to post this anti-Starmer propaganda has been questioned by many on the social media, who point to the fact that the new Labour leader had just exposed false claims about Covid-19-related deaths in care homes by Boris Johnson:

(I think he means they’ll be asking anybody who retweeted their falsehood to retweet their apology.)

Perhaps more revealing is the fact that any reference to the prosecution of child grooming allegations in connection with Boris Johnson brings us back to his own – genuine – remarks, that the investigation into historical allegations of child abuse is “spaffing money up the wall” (an extremely unwise comment when one considers the meaning of the word “spaffing”):

So, while we wait for Mad Nad and Loathsome Lucy to delete their accounts, perhaps BoJob would like to explain why he wanted to stop investigations into child sexual abuse?

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?

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 Change.org, 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?

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.
