Tory MP Derek Conway, who was yesterday reprimanded by the Commons Standards & Priviledges Committee, faces further troubles today.
- The latest news is that he has had the whip withdrawn by the Conservative Party.
- A complaint has been lodged regarding his behaviour with the Metropolitan Police by Duncan Borrowman who is the Lib Dem PPC for Old Bexley & Sidcup. http://duncanborrowman.blogspot.com/
- A further complaint has been lodged with the Parliamentary Commissioner over Conway's previous employment of his older son.
- He was defended by his chum Roger Gale, Tory MP for Thanet North, who said "The fact of the matter is that Derek did not keep time sheets, as I don't for my staff. When there's work to do they do it, when there isn't they don't."
Hmm, I really do wonder if Gale realised he was admitting to paying his staff for doing nothing?
