Boris Johnson news – live: Tory MP slammed for defending Khan as Starmer accuses Sunak of ‘rank hypocrisy’
The Independent says Conservative MP Crispin Blunt has been branded “disgraceful” after he came to the defence of Imran Ahmad Khan, an ex-Tory MP thrown out of the party following his conviction in a child sex offence case yesterday.
Khan was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy in 2008 and now awaits sentencing.
But Mr Blunt said Khan was a victim of a “dreadful miscarriage of justice” and his sentencing will be “an international scandal” with “dreadful” consequences for gay Muslims worldwide. He provided no further information to support this view.
