Cameron aide denies he groped TV writer at No 10
A FORMER senior aide to David Cameron last night denied groping Daisy Goodwin following a meeting in Downing Street.
Daniel Korski, who left as special adviser following the Brexit vote, said that any accusation of inappropriate behaviour was “not only totally false but also totally bizarre”.
Ms Goodwin, 55, a writer and presenter, has claimed she was called to discuss a proposed television show when Mr Cameron was prime minister and an official told her she looked like a Bond girl before putting his hand on her breast. She said that when she challenged him “he dropped his hand and laughed nervously”. Ms Goodwin said she did not report the matter as she was “cross” rather than traumatised.
It is understood that No 10 has been attempting to contact her to investigate the allegations. She has refused to name the man involved, but Mr Korski was linked to the claims on a political blog.
When approached by The Daily Telegraph, he said: “I am shocked to find this is in any way connected to me. I met with Ms Goodwin in No 10 twice I think, and she may have met others too. But I categorically deny any allegation of inappropriate behaviour.”
Mr Cameron said that the first he knew of the claims was when Ms Goodwin wrote an article describing the encounter. A spokesman said he had informed the Cabinet Office.
