Conservative Party Suspend Dover MP Charlie Elphicke

Charlie Elphicke, the MP for Dover, has been suspended from the Conservative Party following allegations which have been received. A spokesperson for the party added that the police had also been involved in the case and were investigating.

Elphicke has represented the constituency of Dover since 2010 and he was appointed a Government whip, although he left the whip’s office when Theresa May became Prime Minister.

“The party tipped off the press before telling me of my suspension. I am not aware of what the alleged claims are and deny any wrongdoing”.
