Former Olympian turned Tory candidate James Cracknell launches expletive rant about his own party

Former Olympian turned Conservative candidate James Cracknell has described his own party as a “shower of s***”.

Mr Crackell is standing in Colchester which the Tories won with a majority of over 9,000 at the 2019 General Election.

Speaking in the video, released on Facebook on Saturday (22 June) he said: “Two weeks out from the Olympics. If we were competing against the Conservative party my teammates and I would be saying they are a shower of s**t*. And if one of my teammates got caught for cheating they’d be dead to me. That abuse of trust is unforgivable.

“So why am I still canvassing and delivering leaflets? Because I believe the Conservative way is the best for the country."
