THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE of Conservative Future, the Tory youth wing, are facing calls to resign following allegations of a culture of bullying that led to the suicide of young Tory Elliott Johnson who was only 21 years of age.

Robert Porter, Deputy Area Chairman of Worcestershire CF tweeted, "If they don't, I'm going to resign, disgusted they lead us."

Another activist called Jenny tweeted, "The entire CF Exec ran on Mark Clarke's slate and have kept very schtum on these bullying allegations. It's disgusting."

One source said: "The likes of Ellie Vesey-Thompson, India Brummitt and Stephen Canning have been too close to Mark Clarke for too long. The idea they have a career in the youth movement, let alone as Parliamentary candidates is a fantasy.

"They were willing to get into bed with Clarke’s campaign in exchange for jobs in all different positions."

"If they have any decency they will quit before conference."
