Bexley Conservatives throw out Ian Clement

Ian Clement may have resigned last week as Boris Johnson’s deputy mayor, but his troubles are far from over.

From the Bexleyheath and Crayford Conservatives’ website:

At a meeting held on 25th June of the Bexleyheath and Crayford Conservative Association Executive Council, a unanimous decision was taken to immediately suspend the Association Membership of Ian Clement in light of recent reports in the press about his conduct.

The process of formally terminating his membership has begun. By the terms of our constitution, this will require a special meeting of the Executive Council, whereby fourteen days notice must be given to Mr Clement.

Last week, the London Assembly’s Business Management Committee heard that Boris Johnson had been signing off Ian Clement’s expenses since April.

Mike Tuffrey, Leader of the Liberal Democrats on the London Assembly said,

Serious questions remain about why Boris Johnson personally approved these claims when staff knew there was a history of irregularities. The Mayor now needs to come and explain himself to the Assembly.
