But here a problem enters: Ms Davison was exposed by Hope Not Hate last February as having been rather adjacent to two far-right activists, one of whom had been so far off the scale that the Tories kicked him out. As the Guardian reported at the time, “Dehenna Davison was pictured holding a County Durham flag with Andrew Foster, a man described by anti-racism campaigners as a ‘Muslim-hating extremist of the very worst kind’”.
There was more. Rather a lot more. “The images … show the MP with Foster at a party celebrating Brexit in a pub on 31 January. At the same event she was also pictured with Colin Raine, a former Tory activist banned from the party after allegations that he was behind a far-right protest and made Islamophobic comments online”.
Just an innocent misunderstanding ...
McGregor clearly did not buy the innocent explanation line which Ms Davison has been offering. “The controversy surrounding these two men means that it is hard to believe that the local party did not know who they were. Davison must explain why she was associating with these two individuals”. But she didn’t. Nor did the Tories.
... just like with her old boss
Dehenna Davison should not be on the Immigration Bill Committee. End of story.
