Portsmouth MP and councillor Mike Hancock was finally suspended from the Liberal Democrats after a report from a QC found “compelling prima facie evidence” that he had sexually harassed a vulnerable constituent. But despite this, Hancock, who denies the allegations:
- still attends Lib Dem group meetings
- still sits in the middle of the Lib Dem group in council
- has no Liberal Democrat standing against him in May’s elections
Given the above, it should probably come as no surprise that he is still describing himself as a Lib Dem MP. This from Labour’s group leader on the council:
Resident in Fratton showed me letter from Mike Hancock written last week describing himself as 'Liberal Democrat MP for Portsmouth South'
