Tory MP defends UKIP paedophile jailed for child grooming
Both the Tories and the UKIP have been making political capital recently by linking Labour with the child grooming scandal in Rotherham.
So it must be a bit awkward for UKIP that one of their regional chairmen – Peter Entwistle – has just himself been jailed for grooming children, as well as possession of indecent images of children.
And I’d imagine it’s also a bit awkward for the Tory high command that one of their party’s MPs – Alistair Burt – wrote a letter to the court in support of Entwistle referencing the former Bury UKIP chairman’s “good character”.
So awkward in fact, probably best we keep this information to ourselves.
