A remarkable letter to Conservative Party Chairman Lord Feldman from the father of a young Tory activist who is believed to have killed himself after allegations of bullying during the Conservative’s election campaign, has been published in full.
Ray Johnson — the father of 21-year-old Elliott Johnson — blasts the Conservative Party for a “culture of fear” during the party’s election campaign and tells the party to hand over evidence related to his son’s death to the police.
In the letter, he also claims that:
- young Conservative Party activists are “too terrified to complain” about bullying
- the Conservative Party has “blatantly failed” in its duty of care to young people
- the Tories should “examine their consciences”
- “endemic bullying, harassment and intimidation” are “acceptable” in the party
