Having (finally) been cut loose by the UK Lib Dems, the news that Mike Hancock was a self confessed constituent-interferer had not reached as far as Strasbourg last November — which might be why he was allowed to represent the Council of Europe’s Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe group on a junket to the United Nations in New […]

Having secured just 716 votes as a Lib Dem spoiler candidate in Portsmouth South, former MP Mike Hancock is reportedly off on a jolly round Europe — safe in the knowledge that despite losing his deposit, the mere fact of his kamikaze candidacy guarantees him a £33,000 taxpayer-funded resettlement grant. His plans for his retirement may well raise eyebrows:

Brass-necked Mike Hancock is now well and truly back in Westminster, getting his second speech under his belt since he apologised for sickening behaviour towards a vulnerable member of the public. After testing the waters in an Israel/Palestine debate two weeks ago today, he was then spotted on the Lib Dem benches during exchanges on the Recall Bill — right next […]

Pervy Mike Hancock’s brazen ‘business as usual’ approach has been underscored this week as he jets off on a jolly to the Council of Europe.

The figure is the rumoured cost of investigations into his conduct by Portsmouth City Council, for which he was a councillor until defenestrated […]

Politics raised a collective eyebrow last week with the Lib Dems attempting to bury the bad news of Mike Hancock’s resignation from the party under the Scottish independence referendum. A Lib Dem official was quoted claiming that Hancock had jumped before he was pushed: “Obviously, there was due to be a disciplinary hearing imminently, so before that has […]

Mike Hancock — the MP who spent years denying that he sexually harassed a vulnerable constituent before admitting an “inappropriate” friendship with her — has quit the Liberal Democrats. The news breaks in an Andy McSmith diary column. This gets Hancock and the party out of that nasty disciplinary hearing.

BBC Radio Solent broadcast the rest of Jessica Parker’s (@MarkerJParker) interview with Mike Hancock this morning (you can hear the first bits here). The self pity is palpable. He’s well enough to be writing columns in the local paper, holding constituency surgeries, making interventions on Gaza and the case of Aysha King but not well enough to […]
