A Tory election candidate has issued an apology for making light of the date rape drug Rohypnol in social media posts dated back to 2012.

In communications obtained by Sky News, Oliver Johnstone, a candidate for Member of Parliament in Stockport, stated, "if [sic] wasn't for the incentive of material goods just how do you expect me to get laid," and further commented in a subsequent message, "Well that or rohypnol."

The ex-council member from Stockport conveyed to Sky News, "I sincerely apologize for those remarks, which were made several years ago."

He had shared his thoughts on a post that condemned "Steak and Blowjob Day," an online meme that emerged as a purported male counterpart to Valentine's Day.

In reply to the message, Mr. Johnstone commented, "Seems like we've stumbled upon a new name for International Men's Day… I don't understand the issue… you women are overly accustomed to this whole freedom rhetoric."

He responded to a different negative remark, stating: "I disagree with the claim that women find no joy in performing oral sex on men. In fact, Steak and Blowjobs Day can be considered a mutual and fair trade."

He then made a jest suggesting that his chances of being intimate with women relied on either "material gifts" or using "rohypnol".

A spokesperson for the Conservative Party stated: "The party has communicated with the individual in question and has reiterated the behavioral guidelines and expectations set for candidates, encompassing activities on social media platforms."
