To respond to the letter which Mrs Kay wrote about Nigel Evans being given a second chance.

It would seem Mr Evans has already had his second and third chance, and this did not seem to make the slightest bit of difference to his behaviour.

During his trial, it was widely reported that, following complaints he was using his power and influence to force his attentions on young men, he had received several warnings about his behaviour from senior Conservative figures.

In 2009, he was told by senior party officials to curb his drinking and seek more appropriate company.

Even though he has had several warnings, it was the same drunken behaviour and over-familiarity with men much younger than himself that got him into the trouble in which he found himself last year. Even recently, he does not seem to have any remorse at all. Last Sunday, in a TV interview, he was asked why party workers wanted him to stand down and whether it was something to do with the revelations about his private life during the trial.

He seemed to display total arrogance, insisting he had done nothing wrong. Maybe it was not illegal, but it was certainly morally wrong I would say!

No, Mrs Kay, Mr Evans has already been given enough chances and a man in his position should have listened to warnings and advice, behaving in a way one would expect an MP to behave.

Mr Evans, Right Honourable? I don’t think so!

Mrs Wallacy
