As the sheer scale of the Westminister sex scandal grows day by day, ever-more serious allegations are beginning to emerge detailing the true depravity of the situation.

In claims that will send significant shockwaves throughout an already-appalled House of Commons, it has been reported today that a Tory MP allegedly used a date rape drug in order to sexually assault a Labour MP in the back of a taxi in 2014.

The MPs, both believed to be male, were said to have spent a ‘boozy’ night out together, before the Labour MP was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by the Tory MP in the back of a cab.

The allegations, which were first reported by The Mirror, are believed to be just one incident of a vast number compiled by Labour MP John Mann in a little black book.

Speaking about the seriousness of the allegations he has already compiled, Mr Mann said:

There will be at least 12 by-elections as a result of this.

And, in deeply worrying news for an already massively unstable minority Tory government, Mann – the Labour MP for Bassetlaw in Nottinghamshire – added:

There are also going to have to be more Cabinet resignations

The victim of the date-rape incident did not want to go on record with a statement.

Once Mr Mann has completed compiling evidence of incidents across Westminster, he will be presenting the list to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The Conservative Party were also recently forced to suspend Dover MP Charlie Elphicke from the party after referring ‘serious allegations’ to the police on Friday. Mr Elphicke has since tweeted that he has no knowledge of what the accusation pertains to, but denies any wrongdoing.

It is not believed that the ‘serious accusations’ against Elphicke and the aforementioned date-rape incident are related in any way.

Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and all other parliamentary party leaders are scheduled to meet today to discuss a new safeguarding system for MPs and Westminster staffers.

The Prime Minister said:

There is a vital need to provide better support and protection for the thousands of staff working in Westminster and in ­constituency offices.

If parties can agree on a system it will mean that the same rules will apply to each party should any of their MPs or staffers be accused of wrongdoing.

Currently each party has their own individual grievance procedure to deal with serious complaints. And given the scale of the current sex scandal engulfing parliament, the current systems are quite obviously far from robust enough to adequately deal with such allegations.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
