Ex-Tory MP Charlie Elphicke plans to apply for Universal Credit after sexually assaulting two women.

Former Conservative MP Charlie Elphicke plans to apply for Universal Credit after sexually assaulting two women.

Charlie Elphicke, the disgraced ex-Tory who failed to pay £35,000 following his sex case, claims to be unemployed and claiming benefits.

The ex-Dover MP, 50, was released halfway through a two-year sentence after being found guilty of assaulting two women.

He was remanded in court yesterday for failing to pay the prosecution’s costs.

The majority of the £51,000 he received from the sale of the house he shared with estranged wife Natalie Elphicke, who is now a member of the Dover Parliament, was spent on legal fees and rent, according to the court.

He told Uxbridge magistrates, “I have filed a Universal Credit claim, which is currently being processed.”

He begged them to give him more time to “recover his footing.”

The meeting has been rescheduled for December 17th, when a payment order is expected to be issued.
