Tory MP ‘is quizzed by detectives over claims he sexually assaulted gay man after Eurovision party’
Ben Howlett, 30, accused of putting hands inside another man’s trousers
He allegedly then touched the man’s partner’s crotch in a Bath nightclub
Howlett, who is openly gay, was questioned under caution by detectives
No, not that. What appears to be something between a drunken fumble and a sexual assault. Rather, this:
A source said that Howelett, 30, the member for Bath, Somerset, was ‘very drunk’ at the time the offence was alleged to have happened.
The party is said to have been attended by around 30 people in one of the town’s most exclusive areas and they are said to have moved onto the Sub 13 cocktail bar.
But the attack happened in a local pub called The Common Room, where the revellers moved onto at around midnight, a source told The Sun.
So that place hasn’t changed much in 35 years then. The decor has but not the style. It’s where you go after getting pissed up somewhere else and are looking for a drunken fumble. Culture is persistent, isn’t it?
