Clegg Apologises to Lib Dem Dismissed Over Hancock Affair.

He might be on a hospital ward but the adverse publicity for Mike Hancock MP is getting no better today after its emerged that a man who Hancock bullied out of office when he was leader of the Lib Dems on Hampshire County Council has won an apology from Nick Clegg.

Journalist and Lib Dem activist John Thompson stood up to Hancock in the late eighties and early nineties and paid the price having his Party membership revoked.

It's a sweet revenge for Thompson who also exposed Hancock for having an affair with a former secretary a number of years ago.
