Documentary that exposed Labour scandal back in theatres ahead of election

DOUBLE-BAFTA Award nominee John Walsh’s political satire ToryBoy The Movie will return to the big screen ahead of the 2015 General Election. 

Walsh, whose parents hail from Co Tipperary, will re-release the documentary that originally exposed Labour MP Sir Stuart Bell’s failure to hold a single surgery in 14 years.

The alleged neglect of his constituency resulted in Mr Bell facing disciplinary action from Ed Miliband’s office over the scandal.

ToryBoy The Movie will commence its London screenings at The Tricycle Theatre, Kilburn, on Sunday, 26 April.

It will  be shown at various cinemas across Britain, via Picture House and at schools and universities.

Walsh had been a lifelong Labour supporter, but became disillusioned with the Party.

When David Cameron welcomed new members to join the Tories ahead of the 2010 General Election, Walsh joined and ran as the Conservative candidate for Middlesborough.

His documentary about a rookie Conservative candidate aimed to provide an insight into British political culture, and in doing so uncovered the next big political scandal.
