Robert Jenrick was first elected for the Conservative & Union Party in the UK in the Newark by-election in 2014.
His election would later prove to be controversial, because it was a first outing for an outfit which would later become RoadTrip2015 – organised by “Tatler Tory” Mark Clarke which would become embroiled in an electoral fraud scandal and a bullying scandal.
Jenrick’s election campaign saw hundreds of young Party activists bussed in from around the UK, put in an hotel, and given a free curry supper, at which MP Eric Pickles spoke, for low or no cost. This expenditure was never accounted for.
He was subsequently re-elected in the 2015 General Election, and the following elections, before being appointed to Government by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, something of a meteoric rise for someone with fewer than five years experience as an MP.
