The questions aren’t going away for Tory mayoral candidate Daniel Korski. The self-proclaimed tech entrepreneur is having a tough time answering questions about claims that he grabbed the breast of a woman when he was working in No. 10 under David Cameron. In a bid to clear the air, Korski – who denies the allegation – has today done an interview with TalkTV. The former war reporter claims that:

I didn’t do what’s been alleged. I absolutely didn’t do that. Ten years ago, when it happened, nothing was said to me. Seven years ago, when this first came out, nobody alleged anything to me. I just didn’t do what’s being alleged…  I treat everybody with the utmost respect, I work hard to create an empowering and, and respectful environment and, and I sit appropriately in chairs, and I try to treat everybody with respect in order to get the best out of a professional situation. So I can categorically deny the allegation that’s being made. 

In the excruciating exchange, Korski was also asked by host Kate McCann whether he had ever been unfaithful to his wife. He replied thus:

Look, I mean, I have a fantastic marriage to my wife. And I’m really, you know, excited that we’ve built a fantastic family together. I don’t think it would be appropriate to talk about anything else. I have a loving relationship with my wife. We’ve been together for 22 years I think it is now …we met originally in Bosnia after the war. And, you know, I’m thrilled to to build a life and a family with her.

Robert Halfon MP has already withdrawn his support from Korski. Will others do the same?
