The incoming Tory MP for Wakefield has urged people to vote Conservative because “we still trust GPs” after Harold Shipman killed 250 people.

Nadeem Ahmed is running to replace Imran Ahmad Khan, the former Conservative MP who triggered a by-election in West Yorkshire after he was jailed for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy.

However, the Tory candidate left people in shock after he said the ex-MP was “a bad apple” before delivering a bizarre speech about Shipman.

“It was the right thing to happen to him,” Mr Ahmed told the Telegraph.

“He’s in prison, that’s the right place. As a teacher, as a father, and as a person, what he did was wrong.

“He was convicted of that offense and I can’t stand here and say that was right. It was absolutely disgusting. And the people of Wakefield know he was a bad apple.”

He added: “Harold Shipman committed suicide in Wakefield Prison. He was a general practitioner, he was a trusted professional, as were teachers and others.

“When they put a vaccine in our arms, we trust what they put in our hands.

“Have we stopped trusting GPs? No, we still trust the GPs and we know he was a bad apple in there.”

Mr Ahmed also echoed the comparison in an interview with ITV, saying: “The people of Wakefield understand there are bad apples… look at Harold Shipman. He committed suicide in Wakefield Prison, but do we trust our doctors?”

Shipman was convicted of murdering 15 of his patients, but a later inquest estimated the true number was closer to 250.

In most cases, he would inject elderly patients with a lethal dose of diamorphine before signing a death certificate claiming they died of natural causes.

Labor is set to win the by-election as the embattled Mr Johnson faces the fallout from Partygate and lingering questions over whether he has broken his own ministerial code.

The Conservatives also face losing a second by-election, most likely to the Liberal Democrats in Tiverton and Honiton. Former Tory MP Neil Parish resigned last month after admitting to watching porn on his mobile phone in the House of Commons.
