Michael Heseltine Suspended from Conservative Party

Michael Heseltine, the former Deputy Prime Minister, has been suspended from the Conservative Party following his comments that he intended to vote Liberal Democrat in this week’s European elections. A spokesperson for the Conservative Party said that the whip was being withdrawn because Heseltine was endorsing another political party.

Heseltine said in a statement to Sky News:

“They can take away the whip but they cannot take away my integrity, my convictions or my experience. I am a Conservative.”
