The Tory candidate in the Wakefield by-election has suggested voters should trust Tories in the same way people trust GPs after Harold Shipman.
Nadeem Ahmed, who is running for next week’s vote, has been asked about the damage done to the party’s reputation after former West Yorkshire Constituencies MP Imran Ahmad-Khan was jailed for child molestation .
Ahmad-Khan was forced to step down last month after being convicted of assaulting a 15-year-old boy in 2008. He has been jailed for 18 months.
Mr Ahmed, who is seeking to succeed Ahmad-Khan, was asked in an interview with ITV whether his predecessor’s sexual assault conviction had tarnished the reputation of the Conservative Party in Wakefield.
He suggested people would still trust conservatives the same way people trust doctors after Shipman, known to be one of the most prolific serial killers in modern history, was found to be responsible for more than 250 deaths, including those of his patients.
Shipman, who had been a GP, died by suicide at Wakefield Prison in January 2004.
Mr Ahmad told ITV: The Conservative Party is bigger than an individual. What [Ahmad-Khan] did was wrong. I say that as a parent, as a teacher. Protection is one of the biggest concerns of any teacher in the classroom.
He’s in the right place [prison]. He got the right punishment, and the people of Wakefield understand there are bad apples in every… look at Harold Shipman.
[Shipman] committed suicide in Wakefield prison, but do we trust our doctors? You go to your GP, I go to my GP. We always trust our general practitioners.
In a separate interview with the Telegraph, Mr Ahmad used the same reasons to justify his view that Wakefield voters should trust the Conservative Party.
The by-election is due to take place on Thursday June 23, with another in Tiverton and Honiton due to take place on the same day.
Tiverton and Honiton’s seat was vacated by former Tory MP Neil Parish after he admitted to watching pornography twice in the Commons.
