Tory Leader David Cameron enters 'bullygate' row taking unusual step of calling for inquiry, Gordon Brown, nothing to hide, nothing to fear!

Dear All

Tory leader David Cameron has entered the ‘bullygate’ row that is circling psychologically flawed Gordon Brown.

In a move practically unheard of in modern politics times, he has taken the usual step of calling for an inquiry into allegations of bullying in Downing Street.

The remit of the inquiry would centre on the conduct of Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

In entering the row, Cameron has called for Number 10 and the civil service to "get to the bottom" of the "serious matters".

With head of a bullying charity confirming that Number 10 staff had phoned for help, this raises the prospect that independent people are prepared to speak out.

Even the Dems said claims should be "cleared up", but have stopped short of entering the row in the same manner as the Tory leader.

In trying to stem the row, Mandelson tried unsuccessfully to paint a picture of Brown as “demanding”.

It didn’t work.

The Labour Party machine then issued outright denials which prompted National Bullying Helpline's chief executive, Christine Pratt, contacted the BBC to say a flat denial sent out the wrong message and she would expect Downing Street to follow "due process".

It is telling that the Labour Party with a history of lying and misleading the public should pronounce in advance of any inquiry that Gordon Brown is innocent when the alleged victims haven’t been given the chance to speak.

What about the victims’ rights?

Is that not a New Labour mantra?

Mr Cameron is currently floating the idea that Sir Philip Mawer, who is in charge of policing the ministerial code, to be asked to look into this and to find out what has been happening and get to the bottom of it.

The Labour Party according to the Tories is now engaged in a smear campaign in order to dirty the water.

Lord Mandelson, said there had been no evidence of bullying at Number 10, adding;

"There is zero tolerance for bullying in the government as a whole, and certainly at the centre of government."

So, why do Number 10 employees phone a National Bullying Charity?
