Two years ago, Aidan Burley, the MP for Cannock Chase was caught on camera at a stag party in France at which his friend, attired in an SS uniform toasted Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. For two years the Conservative Party has evaded questions over Burley’s conduct and suppressed its own report into his behaviour.
Yesterday, Political Scrapbook informed readers that the Burley case will finally go to court. The Tory Party report is, unfortunately, another matter and it would seem that the party is doing all it can to weasel its way out of the tight spot.
In the year leading up to the general election, we need to keep up the pressure on Cameron, otherwise he will continue to kick this incident into the long grass. We can’t let them do that.
