Chair of Tories’ ‘1922 committee’ held by police after ‘incident’ at conference

Senior Tory MP told to leave conference after triggering lock-down with ‘totally unacceptable’ ‘punch-up’
Geoffrey Clifton-Brown

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, the treasurer of the highly-influential Tory ‘1922 Committee’ has been held by police and told to leave the Tory party conference after a ‘punch-up’ with conference security.

The incident, which was described by a party spokesperson as ‘totally unacceptable’, triggered a security lock-down.

Shortly afterward, Home Secretary Priti Patel spoke about Tory plans to get tough on crime. Of course, Patel was sacked from her previous front-bench job under Theresa May for holding unauthorised meetings with a foreign government about diverting UK aid funds to a military hospital, so Clifton-Brown’s issues are not the only problem with her plan.

  1. Watch your back with m’learned friends! Is it the chair or the treasurer who’s been nicked?

  2. I wonder what pritti pattel thinks of this.Probably just a bit of boorish behaviour which must be expected at any old boys get together.Do you think that they will be serving pigs trotters at this Lancashire hooray henry get together.Maybe bury black puddings for starters and pigs head for main course,should be a better selection.Half pints all round for Johnson and his cabinet.should finish the get together.I do hope they enjoyed their Lancashire welcome at the weekend?
