Mike Hancock Focus leaflet

With a QC having found “compelling prima facie evidence” that Mike Hancock sexually harassed a vulnerable constituent, the Portsmouth MP and councillor was finally suspended from the Liberal Democrats after the confidential report was leaked — not that this has made much difference in practice.

As reported by Scrapbook previously, Hancock, who denies the allegations:

  • still attends Lib Dem group meetings
  • still sits in the middle of the Lib Dem group in council

As expected, council leader Gerald Vernon-Jackson has also confirmed that the Lib Dems will be standing in every ward in the city for May’s local elections … except the one that Mike Hancock is defending.

To top it off he’s still printing Liberal Democrat-style ‘Focus’ leaflets (above) with the exact same graphic design.

He’s still a party candidate in all but name.
