The Tories have said they did not know Imran Ahmad Khan had been accused of sexually assaulting an under-age boy – even though he had told their press office.
That’s the reason they’re using for giving him a position on a Home Office panel that advised the government about child sexual exploitation by grooming gangs, while his crime was being investigated by police.
Do you believe that?
Boris Johnson was cagey about the subject when he was challenged about it in Prime Minister’s Questions yesterday (April 27, 2022):
“I believe the Home Office has already made a statement about it,” he said.
Yes – as follows:
The Home Office was not aware of the allegations against him at the time and he no longer has any involvement with the department.”
This is very odd, because the MP’s victim told a court that he had made a complaint to the Conservatives’ press office days before Imran Ahmad Khan was elected as MP for Wakefield in November 2019.
The Tory Party line?
“We have found no record of this complaint.”
That could be because, as the victim stated to the court,
“I wasn’t taken very seriously.”
He said the woman he spoke to sounded “shocked” and passed him on to someone else who sounded more “stern” and asked if he had any “proof”.
“I said, ‘Yes, there’s a police report’ and she said, ‘Well …’, and that was it.
“I said, ‘I’m going to the police’, and she said, ‘Well, you do that’.”
It seems the Tories didn’t even bother making a record of the conversation and passing it on to the Whips’ office.
And it says much about the quality of Conservative MPs that Imran Ahmad Khan never bothered to mention that he was under investigation by the police and might not be an appropriate choice – or simply recused himself.
Considering the recent revelations that a Tory MP smeared Angela Rayner leading to the ‘Basic Instinct’ Mail story, that 56 MPs are accused of sexual misconduct including three Tory Cabinet ministers, and that a Tory frontbencher was caught watching pornography in the Commons chamber, we should not be surprised.
It seems the Conservative Parliamentary benches are full of sexual deviants.
And it seems they know they can get away with their perversions because nobody in their party ever takes complaints about them seriously. Am I right?
