Dunno if anyone seen this, but Crispin Odey (Tory backer) is up on charges.

Penfold is trendy on Twitter for some reason.

Because it matches the facts about the suspect the newspapers revealed

I assume you're not a detective? ;)

We know the Tory MP accused of rape is in their 50s and is a former minister.

If this is Francois.......good strawberry floating lords.

Actually that's probably where he is heading anyway despite anything.

Apparently Starmer has cut Boris' lead down to three percent.

I hadn’t read anything about his age in the article I read this morning. I assume more info came out after I read about it.

Looking through Twitter he doesn’t appear to have had an account, so he hasn’t made it that obvious on himself if nothing else.

I can’t find any evidence of it. Looking at old news articles from 2019 and 2018, including this i article from 2019, he doesn’t have one:

In the absence of a Mark Francois Twitter account, his parody page was more than happy to step in and reassure everyone of his safety.

He has a Facebook though.
