Pressure Mounts on Hancock to Resign Portsmouth South Seat.



PRESSURE is today mounting on Mike Hancock to resign as MP for Portsmouth South.

TBG has spoken to a number of leading figures and all want him out.

Even Gerald Vernon Jackson says he has made a mistake for defending him.

Council Leader Donna Jones told TBG - "I am absolutely disgusted with Mike Hancck in that he has allowed this vulnerable woman to suffer. She has been called a liar and all names under the sun. He should absolutely be ashamed of himself and resign as an MP."

Portsmouth South PPC Flick Drummond said - "Mr. Hancock admits his behaviour throughout has been unprofessional and in view of that I call on him to resign immediately."

Labour Group Leader John Ferrett said - "Without question he should resign as an MP immediately because his position has become untenable."

And Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt said that, "serious questions still remain over Portsmouth City Council's actions over Mr. Hancock's conduct."
