Boris Johnson has ignored a request from young Tory staffers to investigate allegations that sex-sexual MPs are prosecuting Parliament.
The MPs’ 36 aides-de-camp wrote to the Prime Minister following last week’s Sunday Mirror allegation that a senior Tory had supplied four victims with rape drugs.
We didn’t name the deputy, but the group knew his identity.
Henry Dixon-Clegg and Angus McVean, both 22, founded the group Conservative Staffers for Change and recruited others.
They then fired letters to Mr Johnson, Speaker of the House Sir Lindsay Hoyle and Tory leader Oliver Dowden, demanding that such allegations be “duly investigated” and not treated as “mere gossip”.
They wrote: “No other workplace should have gotten this bad.” Commons insiders say more allegations about the MP have surfaced this week.
Mr Dixon-Clegg, adviser to Tory MP Sir Desmond Swayne, said: “This has been going on for far too long but it was the Sunday Mirror article that prompted us to act.”
Mr McVean, Parliamentary Assistant to former Secretary of Northern Ireland Karen Bradley, added: “For staff to feel safe we need to know that predators do not roam free.”
On Friday, the group was called to a 30-minute meeting with Tory Chief Whip Chris Heaton-Harris.
Mr Dixon-Clegg said: “What we expected was a response from No 10. We’re still waiting for that.”
A Chief Whip spokesman said he had “made it clear he cannot respond to anonymous speculation”.
In last week’s report we reported allegations that a Tory used a drug to rape a date on a colleague who woke up to find his nipples being licked.
We are now told that the incident took place at the 2004 party conference in Bournemouth when both were candidates.
The man is said to have drugged three other people.
Another unnamed Tory is out on bail on allegations including rape.
