According to Amankona, local hostilities towards the Tories were laid bare in a city centre bar.
A drag act is alleged to have made a group of visiting Tory members feel “uncomfortable” by making a series of derogatory remarks about the party, before security stepped in to throw out the group “out of nowhere”.

He said: “A bunch of gay Conservatives went to The New Union in Manchester and a drag act was on making rude and derogatory comments about Conservatives and Suella Braverman, making them feel very uncomfortable.
“Apparently, some of the other patrons in this venue were being rude, aggressive and unkind to them.”
Eric Kaufmann, ex-head of politics at Birkbeck, University of London is creating a Centre for Heterodox Social Science at the University of Buckingham.
Speaking on GB News, Amankona dubbed the new centre for research an “exciting project” as it pledges to investigate woke attitudes and controversial subjects such as trans rights and critical race theory.
Kaufmann claims he was the subject of a five-year campaign at Birkbeck for his right-leaning views, which resulted in him leaving the university.
Amankona spoke to Patrick Christys at the Conservative Party conference about the development, adding the Tories are “winning” the culture wars after a speech from Kemi Badenoch about the issue.
“I know Eric Kaufmann quite well and I think what he is doing is a very exciting venture”, he said.
“I think we need more common sense in society and I think when you hear the likes of Kemi Badenoch, they are speaking in a language that is much more similar to the average voter than the likes of Keir Starmer.”
