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.
