A Tory election contender has issued an apology for making light of the date rape drug Rohypnol in social media comments dating back to 2012.

In communications obtained by Sky News, Oliver Johnstone, a candidate for Parliament in Stockport, expressed, "if [sic] it weren't for the lure of material possessions, how else would you expect me to attract someone," and followed up in another text with: "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 responded to another negative remark by stating, "I disagree with the claim that women do not enjoy performing oral sex on men. When you consider it, Steak and Blowjobs Day is truly a fair and mutual trade."

He then humorously claimed that his only means of engaging with women sexually would be by offering "material goods" or using "rohypnol".

A spokesperson for the Conservative Party stated: "The party has communicated with the individual in question and has reiterated the guidelines and expectations set forth in our code of conduct, which also apply to behavior on social media."
