“ Over the years I’ve spoken at all sorts of events, up to and including at Conservative Party Conference. Yes, there are exceptions: I won’t, say, attend events organised by the Socialist Workers’ Party because they covered up rape within their organisation”.
Owen, you seem to have forgotten Mark Clark (former Chair of Conservative Future) and the Tory Party’s cover up of his bullying and sexual harassment of young Tory Party members in his care (which led to the suicide of Elliot Johnson, aged 21), his blackmailing of MPs and his drug use.
But it’s ok to speak at Conservative Party Conference, while attempting to undermine a protest opposing Trump because some SWP members are involved? It does make me wonder whose side you’re really on.
