Rob Roberts MP who was suspended by the Conservative Party for sexually harassing a staffer has returned to the party, despite public outrage.
Following the harassment revelations confirmed by an independent panel, Roberts was suspended from the House of Commons for 6 weeks and lost his whip.
The Conservative HQ also suspended his party membership for 12 weeks. However, for no logical reason, his party membership has now been restored as opposed to permanent expulsion or an extension of suspension.
Public trust in the political system is already at an extremely low point. It’s uncertain why Westminster continue to remain out of touch with the rest of society.
