Calls to reopen inquiry into Tory MP Aidan Burley's Nazi-themed stag party
The Conservative Party is facing calls to reopen its inquiry into a Nazi-themed stag party attended by Aidan Burley.
Mr Burley, MP for Cannock Chase, had denied joining his friends in a pub after they had finished their meal, claiming that he left the dinner in the French ski resort of Val Thorens immediately after a guest had proposed a toast to the Third Reich.
But the Mail on Sunday carried a photograph of Mr Burley outside the pub he claimed not to have visited, and gave details of a recorded conversation between Mr Burley and its reporter that allegedly took place inside.
The MP was forced to resign as a ministerial aide when the pictures of the 2011 stag party were first published, and was the subject of an internal party investigation which last week found that his behaviour was “offensive and foolish”, but suggested that he had been sufficiently punished.
Today, Labour’s vice-chairman, Michael Dugher, urged the Tories to reopen their inquiry.
