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

In communications obtained by Sky News, Oliver Johnstone, a candidate for MP in Stockport, stated, "if [sic] it weren't for the lure of material possessions, how else would you expect me to attract a partner?" He followed this with another comment: "Either that or use rohypnol."

The ex-council member from Stockport conveyed to Sky News, "I sincerely regret these remarks, which were made several years back."

He had shared his thoughts on a post that disparaged "Steak and Blowjob Day" – an online meme coined 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 theme for International Men's Day… I don't understand the issue… you ladies are simply too accustomed to all this emancipation talk."

He responded to another negative remark, stating: "I disagree with the claim that women do not enjoy performing oral sex on men. When you really consider it, Steak and Blowjobs Day represents a mutual and fair trade."

He then humorously suggested that the only methods he could use to engage sexually with women were through "buying gifts" or using "rohypnol."

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