Lord Sheikh faces Tory probe for attending Tunisia conference with Corbyn

Quote

Senior Tories are demanding an investigation into Lord Sheikh for attending the controversial conference in Tunisia at the heart of the Jeremy Corbyn wreath laying scandal.

MPs Robert Halfon and Zac Goldsmith have lodged a formal complaint with the party saying the event in 2014 was ‘disgraceful’.

In a letter to Conservative HQ, the politicians wrote: ‘We cannot, as a Party, rightly and robustly criticise the Leader of the Opposition for his attendance at this conference while allowing the attendance of a Conservative Peer at the same event to pass without comment or complaint.

‘To do so would be to indulge in hypocrisy and double standards. In our opinion, Lord Sheikh’s attendance at this conference was hugely disappointing and raises significant questions that need to be answered.’
