EXCLUSIVE: CF RoadTrip Scandal Posters in Circulation.

It seems not even Baroness Chisholm can stop CF'ers creative juices flowing this Christmas.

Tory HQ Pull Plug on Conservative Future.

SOCIAL MEDIA has gone crazy with the announcement that Tory HQ 'grinches' have demanded all Conservative Future (CF) branches cancel upcoming social events IMMEDIATELY.

The decision, which was emailed to CF branch and regional Chairman yesterday afternoon, follows the suspension of the entire National CF Executive last month. The move, which was reached in an emergency meeting of the party board, followed the tragic death of a Tory activist.

The former National Executive have been criticised for not addressing bullying within the party, following the life expulsion of former CCHQ 'Director',Mark Clarke. Mr. Clarke denies all allegations of bullying, as do the CF National Executive.

The email from Tory Party bosses, which has been seen by TBG asks that CF cancel all upcoming events following orders by the youth organisation's 64 year old temporary Chairman, Baroness Chisholm. It also encourages members to get more involved with their senior associations. TBG understands that this moves may signal the final nail in the coffin for CF, with The Times running the headline 'The party's over....'

However, TBG has heard from multiple sources that intend to fight the 'ridiculous' HQ ban.

One activist told this blog: "No offence, but who on earth are these people attempting to ruin all my hard work? I've built my branch up from scratch and have never overseen any dodgy activity. We've all done nothing but slave away for the good of the party and I'm being told me and my team can't go for a pint at the Red Lion in case it suddenly turns into some mosh pit? Do me a favour!"

Another Southampton based member said: "I've just had to cancel a little get together me and other activists were planning. It was to celebrate our hard work. I've not even met the suspended National Exec, why on earth should I have to suffer because of a few bad apples. This is unfair. I've had to put my reindeer antlers back in the cupboard."

One CF member went so far as to brief the National Press with his decision not to listen to Tory HQ. Outspoken Liam Walker of Witney, who was last week dragged into the bully row following leaked emails from 10 Downing Street to The Sun Newspaper told The Guardian: "While we recognise it has been requested that Conservative Future branches cancel any forthcoming social events, the Witney CF Christmas Curry this weekend will still be going ahead. Christmas is a time to get together and celebrate with friends and colleagues which is exactly what we intend to do."

Another member who wishes to remain anonymous told TBG: "I just want this madness to be over. I feel like CCHQ have literally left me out in the cold. They appointed Mark Clarke, they ignored our complaints. Yet, somehow, my little local branch has been told to disband all further activity. CF isn't perfect, but it's the fact CCHQ are passing the buck, as if to blame the naughty kids. When will they look themselves in the mirror?"

The saga continues...

Tory Activist Suicide: Family Boycott Party Probe Into Bullying.

Tory Elliott was found dead on railway tracks after leaving a note about bullies

RAY JOHNSON, the father of Tory activist suicide victim Elliott Johnson, has told TBG he is boycotting the Conservative Party's investigation into Mark Clarke and bullying allegations calling on Conservative Future activists to "anonymously" submit their accounts of bullying to their solicitors without "risk of leak".

Ray says: "We as a family have decided not to become involved with this 'so called' independent inquiry as CC have not fully answered our solicitors basic questions. Our concerns include the fact that CCHQ have been involved in framing the 'terms of reference' and that witnesses may be questioned in a manner that is favourable to the Conservative party. This may also prevent the witnesses giving full and frank answers, if they believe that party officials will later be made aware of their testimony.

"We are concerned that the hands of CCHQ will be pulling the strings from behind the scenes as their actions to date show that they are more interested in protecting the party machine and its staff, than in natural justice for Elliott and other young activists."

TBG recently revealed that law firm being used by CCHQ to conduct the bullying inquiry has long standing links with the party.

The family’s lawyer, Jane Deighton, of Deighton Pierce Glynn Solicitors, told Clifford Chance its "refusal" to spell out its Tory links suggested the investigation was "neither independent nor transparent".

An extract from Deighton Pierce Glynn Solicitors letter to Clifford Chance & CCHQ says: "You refuse to say what work Clifford Chance does for the Conservative Party. Other than the limited denials, above, you declined to disclose the links between Clifford Chance, its lawyers and staff and the Conservative Party, Ministers or Conservative Party officials, CCO ltd, Conservative Way Forward or the Young Britons Foundation."

Mark Clarke denies all allegations.

Meet the New CF Chief.

Meet the new chief of Conservative Future [CF]. Unlike any of her predecessors, she’s a Baroness and 64 years old

DESPERATE times call for desperate measures it seems, with the Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen being parachuted into the role until such a time that a new youth organisation can be established. The move follows the suspension of the entire National Executive from their roles.

The Baroness, who does not leave much of a trace online, is hardly a familiar face within CF circles and has had a noticeable lack of presence at any CF related event.

The disgraced National Executive, who have kept low profiles since Mark Clarke was expelled from the Conservative Party for life, are unlikely to be allowed to return to their roles.

Calls from across CF circles have ranged from completely shutting down the organisation to having immediate elections.

TBG understands that there remains only one confirmed possible candidate for the role at this stage. Liam Walker, who chairs Witney Conservative Future, has remained quiet despite kicking his election campaign off early.

The move was met with mixed responses. Whilst some welcomed the decision, others shunned the announcement as "insensitive". Sources say Walker is concentrating on a comprehensive plan for the youth organisation to take it forward.

TBG sources also reveal that there are moves to establish two separate organisations; one that focuses on students and the other on young professionals. It is not understood at this stage how either would operate.

One insider tells TBG: "Whilst there are some that completely dismiss CF, there are others who have worked damn hard. Across the country, branches have come together in really difficult times. Just look at places like York, Bedfordshire and London. They’ve worked really well and can always be called on to campaign. Simply dismantling them is an insult to the hard work of so many people. The actions of a few should not tarnish the future of everyone else."

Another Leicester based activist told TBG: "It’s clear the last set of Exec members cared more about themselves than making campaigning accessible to anyone outside the RoadTrip brigade. The future should learn from the mistakes of the past. Whatever happens we need to put activist welfare at the very heart of any changes."

Clarke Did Get Back on Tory Candidate List.

THERE are reports this afternoon that 'Tatler Tory' Mark Clarke DID get back on the Tory Candidates List after all.

This was despite apparent complaints made to CCHQ and rumours of affairs and scandals sweeping Westminster as regards his beloved Road Trip 2015.

Leaked emails seen by The Blue Guerilla between Clarke and Paul Abbott show that in the Summer of 2014 when Road Trip was visiting constituencies including Portsmouth South, Brighton Kemptown and Croydon Central, Clarke reopened his links with CCHQ 'in a good way.'

The emails however back up comments made by a former campaign manager who continues to allege that Clarke only ran Road Trip to try and get a seat at Westminster after his last candidature ended in shame in Tooting in 2010.

TBG understands that Gareth Fox, CCHQ's Head of Candidates in 2010 and 2015, reopened Mr Clarke's candidate file in the Summer of 2014.

Clarke is accused of bullying Tory activist Elliott Johnson before he killed himself in September and Sarah Jane Sewell before SJ left Conservative Future.

One email exchange between Mr Clarke and Mr Abbott on June 24th 2014 said:

"Just a quick note to remind you: I’ve spoken with Gareth Fox who will now keep your file open and active – rather than archived."

"All positive letters, endorsements, reports, clippings – you name it – it would be helpful if you/MPs/candidates could send to him directly and he will ensure they are put in your file on the top."

"Gareth and Carlyn Chisholm (Candidates Committee) will then have a cup of tea with you at Party conference to review progress, have a chat, and discuss next steps."

The news comes hours after the BBC Newsnight programme exposed how Senior Conservative Party officials received a memo in August which warned that the activist at the centre of the Tory bullying scandal was "sociopathic" and "dangerous".

A former CCHQ Campaign Manager told TBG:

"I received I don't even know how many complaints about Mark Clarke and CCHQ's endorsement of him."

"I feel irritated that no one is stepping up to try and protect these young activists who have just worked bloody hard helping to deliver a majority and deserve thanks - not to be shelved by CCHQ and yelled at by Mark Clarke."

The Sun today reports that "casual sex and pole dancing" were examples of regular activity at Road Trip 2015 events.

Tatler Tory Scandal: Walker in Hot Water Over Threats Claim.

MORE sensational allegations of threats and possible assault have rocked the Conservative Party yet again tonight, TBG can reveal.

In a Facebook post Tatler Tory's reported ally Andre Walker, who was also suspended from Conservative Party conference after the suicide of 21-year old activist Elliott Johnson, says he has been accused of threatening a convicted criminal.

Walker says: "A convicted burglar and arsonist has come forward to say I threatened him. No one cares that it isn't true. Time for me to get trampled on again..."

TBG is yet unaware if the assault claim is linked. After CF'er Marina Muttik's story in the press yesterday sources say another Tory blonde bombshell may well be set to hit the headlines.

Pidding Under Pressure in Tory Bullying, Suicide & Sex Plot Scandal.

Baroness Pidding and Lord Feldman

BARONESS Emma Pidding is the latest figure to feel the pressure in the Tatler Tory scandal.

It comes after Ray Johnson called the decision to award Pidding a peerage less than a month after Elliott Johnson's suicide "crass".

The Daily Mail reports that Pidding was rewarded for her work with senior election aide Mark Clarke in organising the party’s Road Trip electioneering campaign and entered the Lord just as the sex, drugs and blackmail scandal was breaking.

However, TBG can sensationally reveal that this took place less than a year after she received an OBE for the same services from Prince Charles at Windsor Castle.

Mr Johnson said in a letter published exclusively on TBG: "As you are no doubt aware, Ms Pidding’s name has cropped up on numerous occasions as a close confidante of Mark Clarke."

"Young activists are quietly claiming she is the source of leaked information to Clarke, allegedly revealing the identities of those who raised complaints about his activities."

The Daily Mail goes on to report that "Lord Feldman was always a fan of Pidding because, unlike some previous heads of the voluntary party, she never rocked the boat and was devoted to Mr Cameron."

"He also has good reason to be grateful to her."

"In May 2013, Feldman was facing calls to resign after two newspapers named him as the Tory grandee who described party activists opposed to gay marriage and with a hard-line position on Europe as ‘swivel-eyed loons’."

"Demands were made at a Tory board meeting for an inquiry into the allegations, which he always denied. Pidding marshalled forces for Feldman to defeat the move. She has also vehemently denied having anything to do with the leaks to Clarke."

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Bullying Inquiry Law Firm Used to Groom Party Candidates.

LAW FIRM Clifford Chance, a member of the 'Magic Circle' of leading British law firms, has been used to groom a number of ambitious high-flying Tories before being selected for safe seats at the last election, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The Mirror reports that: "The party has given in to calls for an external investigation of its handling of allegations surrounding the apparent suicide of Tory supporter Elliott Johnson."

"A crunch meeting of the Conservative Party Board later agreed to ask law firm Clifford Chance to investigate."

However, where as Tory officials state that, "The Board wishes to ensure that its investigation into events surrounding Elliott’s death and the alleged activities of Mark Clarke and others is, and is seen to be, timely, objective, and comprehensive and independent from the chairman, Conservative Campaign Headquarters staff and party volunteers", sources claim that Clifford Chance is far from Independent.

MP's allegedly groomed by the firm include Banbury MP Victoria Prentis, Havant MP Alan Mak, Fareham MP Suella Fernandes, Louth MP Victoria Atkins, South Leicestershire MP Alberto Costa, Kingston & Surbiton MP James Berry, and Colchester MP Will Quince.

Berk Bektas Back With the Conservatives.

BERK BEKTAS, who you many may remember quit the Conservative Party in a blaze of publicity, has decided to hop-scotch back to the Tories, TBG can reveal.

Times seemed a bit ropey for the Conservatives when Bektas turned away from the party after many defections to UKIP and other parties in 2014. However, the Tories turned it around winning a parliamentary majority in this past May's General Election and sources now claim that Bektas is back in the Tory fold despite being Chairman of the Brookes Labour society.

One young Tory claimed: "He seems to like being chair of everything... but clearly has no set in stone views himself."

No doubt Tories will want to see more of this action from the former Oxford Brookes Conservative Future Chairman:

EXCLUSIVE: CF Meltdown Sparks Vicious Online Response.

IN LIGHT of the recent decision by the Conservative Party to suspend the entire National Conservative Future executive, an online battle of finger pointing has taken over social media.

TBG reporters have seen a number of tweets and Facebook posts which will be sure cause alarm to Tory officials who have asked that victims affected by recent tragic circumstances speak to private counselling firm Westfield Health for help.

In one heated post which has since been deleted, one vocal critic of the CF National Executive demanded that one member "f**k off right back to the inner depth of hell from where you originated". The respondent in question is a former National Executive official.

In a separate post, the same fiery CFer has also requested via twitter that “any journos wanting gossip” should accept her price of “dinner at Dishroom (inc. drinks) for me and my 10 friends”. It is understood that the restaurant in question serves a number of top nosh dishes including Bombay Omelets and Sausage & Egg naan rolls. It would certainly be above TBG's budget.

Other names used to describe the former Exec. by other members online include "sluts", "careerists", "wide-boys", "cult followers" and "willy goblins".

Speaking to TBG, one Southampton based CF member who has asked to remain anonymous has said: "I get people are angry at some of those on the National Executive. I am. But some of the responses that have generated are really quite awful. What’s happened is truly dreadful but you don’t match bullying with bullying- I’m genuinely scared that people are going to have breakdowns over this whole sorry saga."

Another CF source known as Keith told TBG - "Bullying takes many forms. If you’re being targeted by online trolling unjustly I’d skip the Tory Party and speak to the police directly. A couple of these keyboard warriors need to log off for a bit. We need a full scale independent inquiry, not even more harassment cases."

The fall out comes at a time over widespread bullying claims within the Tory party that place former Road Trip 2015 Director Mark Clarke at its center. Mr. Clarke denies all allegations. An internal investigation is being carried out. The former National Executive have been accused of not doing enough to crack down on Mr. Clarke's influence. It is not believed that their general party membership is suspended at this stage. Regional and local CF chiefs however, remain in their roles.

Mark Clarke Defence Turns Bizarre.

THE Mark Clarke defence operation has gone from the bizarre to the ridiculous this weekend, The Mail on Sunday reports.

Speaking to journos about why Clarke chose to head to the sunny Caribbean Island of Barbados despite the chaos, the married 38 year old at the centre of a horrific bullying & blackmail scandal subtly responded by implying the paper was racist.

Clarke proclaimed: "I am with my black West Indian mother visiting my black West Indian family. I can’t control my ethnicity, I was born with it. There is a word for people who run stories about people based on their ethnicity."

Mark Clarke has been expelled from the Conservative Party for life, following allegations of bullying. Mr. Clarke denies all allegations.

TBG is reminded of the classic Lenny Henry sketch, which can be viewed HERE.

Sex & Blackmail Tories Secret CF Emails.

EMAILS between top Tories chiefs about Conservative Future were kept secret during the run-up to May's General Election, TBG can reveal.

Reports suggest that former Tory Chief Paul Abbott ordered former RoadTrip Director Mark Clarke to avoid any "paper trail" on CF and "keep all emails relating to CF on Gmail if we can".

The party is reeling from sex, drug and blackmail revelations and a suicide of 21-year old activist Elliott Johnson after bullying claims.

It's thought any secret emails on Conservative Future may be vital to the inquiry into the suicide.

Grant Shapps Resigns Over Tory Sex Blackmail Plot & Suicide Scandal.

IT'S thought that revelations in the press tomorrow pushed him over the edge.

BBC Reporting that: "Claims have engulfed the Tories following the apparent suicide in September of activist Elliott Johnson."

"Mr Johnson's father had called on Mr Shapps, a former party co-chairman, to resign over claims he ignored repeated warnings about the actions of party youth organiser Mark Clarke."

"Mr Clarke has denied any wrongdoing."

"The party has been subject to allegations of bullying, sexual assault and intimidation since Mr Johnson, 21, was found dead."

"Prime Minister David Cameron said it was a 'tragic loss of a talented young life'."

"Downing Street said the prime minister was awaiting the results of an internal investigation but Mr Johnson's father has called for an independent and external inquiry."

Shapps resignation letter can be seen here in full.

Osborne Puts Conservative Party Firmly on the Centre Ground.

George Osborne's Spending Review once again proves that it is the Conservative Party that continues to occupy the centre ground of British politics.

It builds upon the foundations already laid out by the Chancellor over the last five years.

A five years that has seen Britain reach record levels of employment, growth, rising wages & low inflation.

Latest statistics show the highest employment rate ever at 73.7% and that it is a Conservative Government that is moving towards the goal of full employment.

The spending Review will continue to deliver economic and national security whilst at the same time reduce the levels of debt that Labour left behind.

It was a spending reveiew that is about the foundations of everything we do.

It will put Britain back in the black and living within its means and deliver economic and national security.

This is proven by the fact that spending on counter terrorism alone is to rise by 30 percent.

However, the fact that the chancellor has pledged almost £7 Billion to make housebuilding a priority, with more than 400,000 "affordable homes" to be built in England proves that it is the Conservatives who remain the party of those wanting to aspire, work hard and get on in life.

It is a Spending Review that continues the path of reducing the deficit so we deal with our debts, safeguard our economy for the long term and keep mortgage rates low.

And it is a spending review that will help the Conservatives continue to deliver for people who want to work hard, play by the rules and get on in life.

Which is far more than can be said for a Labour Party who clearly want to return to the same old days of tax and spend that saw them rack up the biggest budget deficit in our peacetime history between 1997 and 2010.

EXCLUSIVE: Paterson Orchestrated Elliott Johnson Support & Tatler Tory Clarke Named CF Successor.

LEAKED messages between suspended Conservative Future [CF] Chairman Alexandra Paterson, 'Tatler' Tory Mark Clarke and CF members have landed in TBG's inbox over the past 4 weeks or so.

TBG can reveal the CF Chairman putting heavy pressure on other CF members to "LIKE" a Facebook post by Elliott Johnson, who was found on the tracks at Sandy Station in September after he took his own life after being bullied.

In a Mafiosi type exchange Paterson says "We are now in crisis" and promises to "protect" members after dishing out orders to orchestrate support for a post by Elliott Johnson.

In another exchange between Mark Clarke and a CF member it's exclusively revealed that Clarke's next choice for National CF Chairman was Stephen Canning. Clarke says he wouldn't "Overtly" back Canning, but then says he didn't do that with Alexandra Paterson's bid either - a statement many Tory youth members may disagree with.

Police Investigate Tory Revenge Porn Video.

POLICE are now investigating an alleged attempted Tory blackmail plot involving a sex tape, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The latest twist in the 'Tatler Tory' scandal saw The Mail report that Mark Clarke had tried to leak a copy of it to the media.

Clarke denies the allegations arguing that he approached the media about the film because he wanted to expose the blackmailer.

According to the Mail, the video was originally created after a youngster on the Road Trip campaign was duped into performing a sex act on Skype by an attractive blonde woman with a French name.

The French lady first contacted the victim on Facebook, where they exchanged messages. She later made contact on Skype, and stripped on screen in front of him. It was at that point she persuaded him to perform the explicit act on camera.

The alleged victim claims that he then received a demand to pay £2,500 or the film would be posted on Facebook.

He refused to pay and the threat was carried out.

The Commentator reports: "Well-placed sources have said that the video can now be used as evidence to prosecute those responsible. It is understood that Police will seek to match the furniture seen in the video along with other evidence. The source, who has seen the video, claimed that at one point a child can be heard in the background."

In a further twist Conservative Future has been branded as "The products of a modern culture where trolling, bullying, offending and terrorising people has become commonplace" by left wing critic Yasmin Alibhai Brown.

Ms Alibhai Brown tells today's i:

"Dodgy and Unruly Youth Movements have been backed unconditionally by the Tory Hierarchy for far too long."

"If David Cameron and Lord Feldman do not act decisively tame and restrain the young bulldogs of the party, we must assume they secretly support such tactics."

"Men like Mark Clarke and his cronies will rule over us one day, and when they do, the toffs in the present government will seem upright and humane."

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Inquiry Should Extend to CF Election Result.

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE [CF] members have raised sensational questions about the validity of the Cooper Coup which saw the former National Chairman fall on his sword and endorse Alexandra Paterson for CF Chairman and the rest of the "RoadTrip" slate, TBG can reveal.

Paterson once elected was then made the face of the Conservative Party's 2015 General Election Campaign.

One CF'er said: "We all know that Shapps was the Team2015 director at CCHQ and Clarke was heavily involved."

Another CF'er said: "I truly have no confidence. Certain high-up Tories would boast about fixing the Conservative Future election result to get the Team2015 they wanted. They may have been blowing their own trumpet but considering recent revelations this should be taken seriously."

A third Tory member told TBG: "It's obvious."

"The current inquiry should extend to the CF elections and the conduct of the suspended National Executive and their backers."

Reporters Catch-up With Clarke in Barbados.

Pic source

STAYING at an extravagant £1,000-a-night villa at the Coral Reef Club, Clarke was pacing around on his phone according to a reporter who caught up with the man the spotlight is firmly on in the Tory bullying, sex, blackmail and drugs plot scandal that is now a raging fire of lethal flames sweeping through the Conservative Party.

When approached by the Daily Mail yesterday, Clarke allegedly "turned pale and he immediately approached a receptionist at the nearby front desk."

Reports claims that Clarke turned and pointed towards the reporter. "Looking on the verge of tears, his voice trembled" as he shouted: "This man is from a national newspaper and he is harassing me on my holiday."

It is then claimed he walked off without responding to any of the allegations – all of which he has consistently denied.

It comes on the same day a Tory female activist said she woke up naked with an MP, after a drinks party with Clarke's allies, and has no recollection of how this came to be.

Canning in The Dock.

Former Deputy Chairman speaks out on allegations

SACKED CF National Deputy Chairman Stephen Canning has found himself in the dock after local press picked up on him finding himself intertwined in the engulfing sex & blackmail plot furore following the suicide of young activist Elliot Johnson.

It's the first sign that the scandal could affect Conservatives electorally. Braintree councillor Stephen Canning insists knew nothing about allegations of blackmail, drug-taking and sexual harassment against former youth wing chairman Mark Clarke until they surfaced in the media recently.

Canning said: "I knew nothing about potential blackmail or allegations of blackmail. No allegations did come to me and I wouldn’t have expected them to.

"I myself had not been bullied by Mark Clarke.

"They were two very separate organisations. Mark Clarke was not part of Conservative Future, the organisation I was deputy chairman of.

"Mark Clarke was director of RoadTrip 2015."

"The Conservative Future committee in itself has been dissolved and its functions have been absorbed by the party.

"I myself am still a Conservative and a Conservative Future member."

Canning is now deputy chairman of the new Conservative Trade Unionist group, of which kinky MP Rob Halfon is president.

Tory RoadTrip Scandal Shows No Sign of Ending.

THE TORY Scandal engulfing former Road Trip 2015 head Mark Clarke took another twist for the worse today.

Both The Sun and Daily Mail had him on their front pages yesterday and there are more stories in other papers too.

The Times quotes Clarke as telling Conservative Future's Sarah Jane Sewell:

"I didn’t want to talk to the candidates department about you because if I had done that, it would have de facto put a black mark against you."

The Guardian quote Ray Johnson, Elliott’s father as saying: "One thing is certain, the Johnson family will not stop until those who leaked our son’s complaint to Clarke are outed and those responsible for tolerating, or worse – encouraging Clarke and his minions, are exposed for all to see."

"The Conservative party owe it to Elliott’s memory and all those young activists who have suffered at the hands of Clarke. They must come clean."

However, it's the Daily Mail who go deepest on both the front page and a double page spread in yesterday's and today's edition.

The paper alleges that the Police are now probing the Tory Sex, Drugs and Blackmail Scandal and that a female Tory activist has been interviewed as the party fell into civil war last night.

The paper claims it has footage of a sex tape which Tatler Tory Mark Clarke used to blackmail a young activist, who was performing a sex act on the film. The revenge porn film has been handed to the police.

They also claim that at least 20 women made complaints about him to Conservative Central Office – with their names being passed on to Mr Clarke and that the first whistleblower was threatened hours after making allegations to Downing Street.

One even allegedly received a sinister call saying: "If you don’t shut her up, we will."

Tory Youth National Executive Given Marching Orders as Howlett Blows Whistle on CF 'Institutionalised Bullying'.

Big Beast Howlett speaks-up on Newsnight, CCHQ swoop into action

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE [CF] National Executive have all be sacked and stripped of their titles by Tory bosses after a devastating Newsnight report packed with allegations of sexual assault, intimidation, blackmail and bullying.

The news comes following the life-ban for Tatler Tory Mark Clarke who was subject to 25 complaints from youngsters on the Road Trip 2015 campaign.

Clarke forged close links with the national executive of the youth movement, which is made up of Alexandra Paterson, India Brummitt, Stephen Canning and Eleanor Vesey-Thompson.

Newsnight say they spoke to five CF'ers who lodged complaints before Elliott Johnson's death. Former super CF Chairman Ben Howlett MP also came out bashing the party's record on investigating bullying complaints by himself and other young activists.

Howlett also made sensational allegations that there is "Institutionalised bullying" within the Conservative Party's youth wing, an allegation that has today led to the entire CF National Executive being suspended and CF being taken into direct party control. He also says he doubts the party's version of events when Party Chairman Feldman says he had no idea about any bullying allegations relating to Clarke before August 2015.

EXCLUSIVE: Tatler Tory Mark Clarke Expelled from Party Ahead of Explosive Newsnight Report.

Mark Clarke [left] with allies [from left] CF Deputy, Grant Shapps MP and Baroness Pidding

A SECRET meeting of top Tory brass is understood to have taken place last night to discuss expelling Tatler Tory Mark Clarke from the Conservative Party, TBG can reveal.

The news comes ahead of an explosive Newsnight report making allegations of sexual assault, bullying and blackmail around the party’s Road Trip campaign. The report's scheduled to be broadcast tonight but a BBC source told TBG they're, "on a knife edge due to Paris" and it may go out later.

A senior Conservative source told The Commentator that the meeting took place to discuss how to handle ‘The Clarke situation’ and expelling him from the party was decided as the preferred option.

Election guru Clarke was suspended from the party following the suicide of 21-year of Elliott Johnson who killed himself amid allegations of bullying.

Earlier this week, Cabinet Minister Robert Halfon confessed to an affair with the head of the Tory youth movement, citing fears of blackmail.

'Utterly Reprehensible' - Isaac Duffy Quits as North East Tory Youth Leader.

Letter to Tory high command leaked to TBG

TORY YOUTH Chairman in the North East Isaac Duffy has sensationally quit his role and dumped the party's youth wing altogether labelling some behaviour as "utterly reprehensible", TBG can reveal.

Well-known Tory activist Duffy says he has been "Compelled" to end his term as North East Conservative Future Chairman saying, "the past few weeks have shaken CF as an organisation and I’ve struggled to come to terms with losing a close friend to internal bullying. Due to recent allegations, I have spent the past several weeks contemplating my involvement in CF. I no longer feel able to continue working with several colleagues so therefore am compelled to end my term as Chair."

In a letter to Tory bosses, leaked to TBG, the hotly tipped National Chairman runner Isaac Duffy slammed CF'ers reaction toward the National Executive after the suicide of Elliott Johnson.

"The reaction from some of my fellow party members to the events of the past few weeks, has been utterly reprehensible. I was astounded to see petitions calling for every nationally elected officer of CF to resign - when some of the people included were in fact victims of internal bullying themselves.

"Perhaps worst of all, I’m absolutely horrified to see individuals using this tragedy for their own personal political gain."

This website had recently reported that Isaac Duffy had privately announced his intention not to restand for the North East Chairmanship in any forthcoming elections.

EXCLUSIVE: Armstrong's Foliage Revealed.

SENSATIONAL ALLEGATIONS of sex and blackmail rocked the Conservative Party last night when it was revealed Government Minister Rob Halfon admitted to a sizzling affair with a senior Conservative Future (CF) Executive member after he alleged being blackmailed by Mark Clarke over the romps, threatening Halfon with snaps of the couple leaving their posh London love-nest.

The allegation is that Tory Sam Armstrong hid in the foliage outside the East India Club with a polaroid camera hoping to take snaps of the pair following a love-making meet. TBG can reveal (above) the spot where Armstrong was thought to have "set upon" to stakeout the Minister's bonking sessions.

There have been further accusations today that the entire affair was one big "Honey Trap" so the CF National Executive and RoadTrip advocates would gain access to and power over randy Government Ministers.

Armstrong told reporters that he spent his time packing leaflets on the campaign trail and denied taking the snaps.

But a source told The Commentator, "Armstrong has the integrity of the Iraqi Information Minister."

Armstrong is said to be used regularly by Tory HQ to "dig dirt" on rival Parliamentary candidates.

EXCLUSIVE: CF National Chairman Goes Underground After Tory Minister Affair Blackmail Revelations.

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE National Chairman Alexandra Paterson has gone offline tonight after rumours she is about to swept into the Elliott Johnson suicide scandal engulfing the voluntary wing of Britain's governing party, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The Tory Youth Chairman Twitter and Facebook accounts are all offline amid revelations in the Sunday Mail of a Minister admitting an affair with an activist and then being blackmailed by Mark Clarke for political favours in return.

Tory Minister Rob Halfon came forward about a secret love affair with a Conservative campaigner, which lasted for a few months earlier this year. The Minister was reportedly told of​ an alleged plot​ ​"masterminded by Mark Clarke to film him and his lover leaving a club where they regularly met, in order to blackmail him with the pictures".

Mark Clarke says the accusations are "preposterous and belong in a spy movie".

EXCLUSIVE: Dead Tory Activist's Father Condemns 'Crass' Conservative Party Over Pidding Lords Induction.

  • Suicide victim Father declares 'now we are out for justice'

  • Says Clarke's 'still hiding'

  • Slams Clarke ally Emma Pidding's Lords introduction

  • Calls on CF'ers to speak up over RoadTrip bullying

FATHER of young Tory activist Elliott Johnson who committed suicide, after accusing senior Conservative Party officials of a bullying campaign against him, has condemned the Party's "crass" handling of the "Mark Clarke affair" as his alleged close ally Emma Pidding gets set to be inducted into the House of Lords this Tuesday.

Father Ray Johnson is furious that the person he says may have leaked the names of anonymous complaints to CCHQ over "Mark Clarke's behaviour" is set to be introduced to the House of Lords.

In another damning letter to Tory Party Chaiman Lord Feldman, Johnson says: "Yet again the Conservative Party demonstrates its crass handling of the Mark Clarke affair, with its intention to introduce Emma Pidding into the House of Lords this coming Tuesday.

"As you are no doubt aware, Ms Pidding's name has cropped up on numerous occasions as a close confidant of Mark clarke, and as Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party Board, is in a position to influence the outcome of your own internal investigation. Young activists are quietly claiming she is the source of leaked information to Clarke, allegedly revealing the identities of those who raised complaints about his activities."

Ray Johnson has clearly stated to TBG that he wants #JusticeForElliott. Mr Johnson was interviewed on Friday by Iain Dale on LBC (below) regarding the circumstances surrounding his son's suicide and told TBG: "Clarke refused to be interviewed by LBC and still hiding behind our early statement to be left to grieve in peace - but that was 6 weeks ago, now we are out for justice!"

Mr Johnson also encourages CF'ers up and down the country to submit any personal stories of bullying, anonymous or not, to TBG to put pressure on CCHQ to ensure that issues are considered in full, and not covered-up.

Ray Johnson told TBG: "This is an opportunity for young members to coalesce together and campaign as one team to put this nonsense to an end, permanently."

Mark Clarke denies any bullying allegations.

LBC Interview with Ray Johnson:

Liam Walker Announces National Conservative Future Leadership Bid.

RUMOURS of an imminent Conservative Future (CF) leadership challenge have come to fruition after Liam Walker announced his intention to run for National CF Chairman, TBG can reveal.

In a statement Oxfordshire based Liam Walker said: "Following a letter sent a few weeks ago from Conservative Party Chairman, Andrew Feldman, to activists in which he stated that Conservative Future elections will be held after the party review process has taken place in June, I am today announcing my intention to run for National Chair of Conservative Future."

Liam Walker
The Walker camp has seen frantic activity since this website revealed, Friday, a top CF activist would disclose his candidacy at the weekend. Walker has since featured at yawn inducing ConservativeHome and in an open letter to CF members, outlining his beliefs and hopes for the future of the organisation, which included the following:

  • Our voice back. Someone not afraid to stand up for young people in our party.
  • Put the fun back into what we do, we aren't just about delivering leaflets. Increase the number of social events including a Christmas Party.
  • Hold an annual CF National Conference giving members an opportunity to voice concerns, ideas and updates on their own branches. Would also include things like media training, social media tips and key note speakers.
  • Support our members making sure those who are willing to give up their own time to set up/run a CF branch have the support to do so. Help and advice with holding events etc.
  • Work with the party to have our own campaign teams using the Team2015 model of local people in local seats supported with CF Action Days. Invite MP's and Cabinet Secretary's to help out or speak at a campaign event.
  • Hold regular meetings across the country for members to feedback ideas and hold the National Executive to account.

Walker has categorically ruled out running a slate and says he will, "work with whoever is elected into any of the positions nationally, regionally and at branch level and encourage all to get involved in the elections if they wish.

"I look forward to the campaign and to meeting as many members of Conservative Future as possible"
- said Walker.

The announcement hasn't been met everywhere with smiles and handshakes however. One CF'er was fuming: "Receiving Liam's email tonight was absolutely disgraceful. In the wake of Elliot's death, this announcement was very premature and very self-loathing. Totally unacceptable."

Other CF'ers are buzzing with excitement: "Walker is fantastic and has a very large character. If anyone can help put CF back together it's Liam."

EXCLUSIVE: Activist to Announce Candidacy for Tory Youth National Chairman.

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE (CF) sources close a well-known top Tory activist says he plans on announcing his bid as early as this weekend, TBG can sensationally reveal.

A CF source told TBG: "We expect him to email the CF'ers he already has contact details for and then a public announcement on social media will follow. It's time for real change."

The CF National Executive has recently been under tremendous pressure to step down following the suicide of young Tory activist Elliott Johnson & the bullying scandal that has engulfed the organisation since.

TBG understands the candidate wants "a clean campaign" and "not the usual CF cat fight". A key part of the campaign is thought to include not tolerating bully behaviour and bringing a professional image to CF.

'Unelected Socialist Cult of So-called Lords Should Learn to Keep Their Noses Out.'

When will the Portsmouth City Bishop Christopher Foster and his fellow unelected, unbiblical, Jeremy Corbyn following, socialist cult of so-called Lords from the Church of England ever learn to keep their noses out of the financial politics of the House of Commons?

As that magnificent historian and Somerset Conservative MP, Jacob Rees Mogg, recently pointed out, there is a long standing tradition that the unelected House of Lords supports the financial business of the democratically elected House of Commons because the unelected Chamber only works if it accepts the legitimacy of a democratic mandate.

This dates right back to the 12th century some 800 years before even The Parliament Act became law in 1911.

Might I therefore ask the Right Rev Foster and his fellow Lords to accept this tradition because if he doesn't then it is now clear that George Osborne is left with just three options.

These are to either scrap the Lords completely, further restrict them when it comes to the legitimacy of the democratic mandate, or flood the House of Lords with more Conservative peers as was the case when we had a similar constitutional crisis to this prior to the introduction of the Representation of The People Act in 1832.

After all, it was the democratically elected will of the British People in the May General Election to support the £12 Billion benefit cuts was it not?

The Rt Rev Foster should therefore either respect the will of the British electorate or, in the words of the former Foreign Secretary, William Hague, "we should amend The Parliament Act to make clear the supremacy of the House of Commons on matters of finance" once and for all!

EXCLUSIVE: Elliott Johnson's Father Slams Clarke's 'Powerful' Backers in Letter to Tory High Command.

  • Father of Tory activist who committed suicide fears inquiry will be a whitewash

  • Mr Johnson thinks Clarke has political support 'at a higher level'

  • Calls for a full police investigation

  • Tells of 'Shock' at treatment of activists seen as 'Fodder'

RAY JOHNSON, the father of young Tory activist Elliott Johnson who recently committed suicide amid claims he was the victim of a bullying campaign, has written to Conservative Party Chairman Lord Feldman and CCHQ calling on them to hand over all the evidence regarding circumstances surrounding the suicide of his son to the Metropolitan Police, TBG can reveal.

Mr Johnson says he was "shocked" to learn about the culture of fear on the Conservative Party's general election campaign machine RoadTrip, accusing the party of failing in its duty of care and treating its young activists as, "Fodder in the pursuit of electoral victory."

Ray told TBG he was, "Pleased that young activists are finally finding the courage to raise their concerns and experiences of bullying and intimidation that has been going on within CCHQ, and, it seems CF."

TBG understands that Elliot's family heard through the national press that CCHQ were planning an internal inquiry led by Edward Legard and claims the Party didn't even offer its condolences regarding Elliott's death, on September 15, until October 5th.

Elliott's Father notes in his letter that he is convinced Mark Clarke's reappointment as RoadTrip2020 director "suggests he has political support at a higher level".

Mr Johnson told TBG that he doubts that the inquiry, "Will get to the root cause of the problem, or uncover those 'behind' Mark Clarke and his known accomplices. I believe that Clarke had powerful backers. I don't know for certain who Clarke's backers are, but the names of Emma Pidding and Grant Shapps keep cropping up."

"I think that now is the time for the Conservative party to call in the Metropolitan Police, for a full investigation - not merely try to cast Clarke out and cover-up the rest", Ray Johnson concluded.

Mark Clarke denies any bullying and intimidation allegations.

EXCLUSIVE: CF Cabal Face Fresh Allegations of Intimidation and Harassment.

The suicide of Elliott Johnson [above] has led to a deluge of bullying allegations against the Conservative Future [CF] National Executive

NEW ALLEGATIONS have surfaced regarding harassment and intimidation toward young Conservative Party members by the CF National Executive, as well as possibly orchestrating the freezing out CF'ers from their own local AGMs, TBG can exclusively reveal.

One CF member has contacted TBG about the way they were treated after raising concerns about the leadership by a Regional Chairman, who has since been replaced, with this website.

The source claims a senior CF National Executive member, "Bullied me into trying to ensure that I never went to the Blue Guerilla in the future about anything. They said that because I went to the media about the now former Regional Chairman, it would go on my record against me and that I put the result of the general election in danger because 'the socialists would use the story against us'. It was very aggressive and said in the future I should tell them about any issues in CF, not The Blue Guerilla."

"Another member & I were then purposefully not informed about the Worcestershire CF AGM and as a result were unable to vote. National Executive members constantly did nothing to ensure that the result of the AGM was sorted out fairly. Two senior members ignored my request to deal with this AGM result even though I was told I should turn to this senior National Exec' member in the future.

"They ignored my FB messages and did not even read them.

"I felt betrayed because I was told I could go to them in the future and I was ignored."

Tory Bosses Respond to Members' Concerns and Pen 2016 CF Election.

A SHORT WHILE ago CF members received a ‘No Subject’ email from the party Chairman, ‘Andrew’ Feldman, TBG can reveal.

The email asks CF members to come forward with any complaints of bullying received against ‘a member of the party’. TBG can only assume we know who this is.

Feldman assures members that a Disciplinary Committee, under the chairmanship of Edward Legard ("A well known barrister who specialises in employment and equality law") shall be taking place.

Outlining the need to stamp out bullying, Feldman provides an email address for CF members to make further complaints: simon.day@conservatives.com

In light of tragic events, the Party has also provided a counselling service to all staff and volunteers affected which members can find more about through the Party’s HR Department.

Concluding the email, Feldman reminds members that a review of the CF structure is underway and as a result, "It makes sense or the next elections for the CF National Executive to take place after this". This means, elections will take place "by the end of June 2016."

Responding to the email, TBG has been contacted by a number of CF members, with mixed reactions.

One Somerset based member said: "Well, it’s nice we’re finally hearing from the party. Everyone has been confused and unable to know where to turn. Hopefully this will calm some tensions."

A prominent London member told this blog: "I know for a fact many people will be scared to come forward. People need to know that they can be protected. The idea of facing a board of people is really daunting, especially for younger people. The party need to make it clear that people coming forward will be kept safe from the wrath of insidious forces."

Another source said: "Waiting until June to get rid of some of those so close to 'he that shall not be named', is not long enough. It is apparent that at least two executive members are still in regular contact with him. God only knows what he is instructing these people to do. Rumour has it they have been told to 'act normal'. Just how far his web of informants and bully boys stretches, remains to be seen. The Party need to get a grip and realise that he lives on through others."

TBG has been made aware that a number of top brass and MPs have demanded CCHQ take appropriate action, which may explain why an email has finally been sent to members.
