Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY TRACEY KANDOHLA and NI­COLA SMALL

CON­STITUENTS of sextsshame Tory An­drew Grif­fiths have said he has “no chance” of stay­ing on as an MP when they get their say in the next elec­tion.

Peo­ple in Bur­ton and Ut­tox­eter spoke out yes­ter­day af­ter it was re­vealed the 48-year-old will face no fur­ther action by the Con­ser­va­tive Party over his 2,000 sor­did mes­sages to two bar­maids.

Com­pany boss Gra­ham Vick­ers, 36, said: “He’ll get his come­up­pance when we go the polls. Peo­ple power will get him out. He’ll have no chance.


“The Tories might want him to stay but the vot­ers in Bur­ton cer­tainly don’t.”

Teacher Jen­nifer Cun­liffe, 44, said: “No one is im­pressed, no one will sup­port him.”

And mo­tor assem­bly worker Si­mon Mal­pass, 42, added: “We don’t want him rep­re­sent­ing us.”

Mr Grif­fiths, a mar­ried dad-of-one, said he was “deeply ashamed” af­ter the Sun­day Mir­ror ex­posed him in July. He has claimed he was suf­fer­ing a “manic episode” at the time.
