A Tory MP who apologised after fabricating an email containing a death threat could face legal action as a result of social media outbursts — including her latest late-night Facebook rant.
In a lengthy five-paragraph diatribe, Telford MP Lucy Allan ‘named and shamed’ a number of local councillors, accusing them of a two-year campaign of “fear, smear, lies, threats, slurs and abuse”. She also claimed that a councillor’s son was “a stalker” — not an allegation to make lightly.
Allan has now deleted her Facebook page and apparently quit Twitter — despite publishing a ‘contract’ with her constituents stating she will “continue to be accessible to you via social media”.
And the row could yet hit the courts — with a local political source telling Scrapbook that:
“All options — including legal action — are on the table.”
This one could yet get quite expensive.
