Danczuk fears end over sexting scandal
The Labour MP Simon Danczuk fears that his enemies in the party are preparing “a kangaroo court” to expel him after he admitted “sexting” a teenage girl who is an alleged dominatrix.
Mr Danczuk, 49, faced accusations yesterday from his first ex-wife of drug use, alcohol-fuelled bullying and of being a sexual predator as a war of words between his former partners intensified.
