If so, no announcement has been made to the public. I would question whether you have become confused with the news this afternoon that Portsmouth City Council has decided that a complaint against him as a councillor should be investigated. Deciding to investigate a complaint only means that on the facts presented, there is a case to answer. Since the Localism Act, the Council has no power to suspend or disqualify any councillor found to have breached the code of conduct.

Not that surprising. I always figured David was only hanging around waiting for Ed to lose in 2015 so he could take over. Now that Ed looks a dead cert to be the next PM, I guess David figures his political career's finished.

I understand that procedures are are matter for individual councils, but note that in Bradford a complaint aginst someone who is no longer a councillor would not be taken as a valid complaint - which given the nature of the sanctions available would seem sensible
"So prepare for another by-election in a Lib Dem seat in Hampshire. That’s certainly the view of Conservatives and Ukip, who believe it is very likely that Mr Hancock may shortly be forced to resign as an MP if the allegations are substantiated":
