A male-only, black-tie charity dinner at the Dorchester Hotel made trouble for Tory MP. The charity dinner included sexual harassment and lecherous behaviors. Beautiful women were handpicked as hostesses and were told to wear matching underwear and be ready for “annoying” men.
The Presidents Club Charity Dinner also asks the hostesses to wear black dresses with corset-like belts and “sexy” high heels. The Charity Dinner Charity Dinner which is one of the most important London’s charity events had 130 hostesses. It included 360 guests and it lasts for 6 hours. According to the reports, the women were treated as sex objects. They were subjected to salacious comments and behaviors.
Having been a hostess, I can confirm that you don’t have to sign non-disclosure contract unless there’s something an employer wants to hide.

An undercover journalist reported that the Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi was seen among the guests. Attending the flash dinner is supposed to cost him his job. As David Meller, the organizer of the dinner, was forced to resign, Zahawi faced calls to stand down. Zahawi, who is the minister for children and families in the Department for Education, has been criticized by so many other MPs.
More than 300 rich businessmen were perfectly happy to attend such an event, which shows what a rotten, sexist culture is still alive and kicking in parts of the business community. Time’s up on this crap. ?

“If it transpires that the minister did not report his concerns and that he was there on previous occasions it is absolutely surely obvious that he needs to resign – our women are too important, our young girls are too important to get this kind of message from our leaders and to think that it’s acceptable,” said Labour MP Sarah Jones.
Labour MP Jess Phillips has also said that “what happened was that women were bought as bait for men who were rich men, not a mile from where we stand, as if that was an acceptable behavior. It is totally unacceptable.”
#PresidentsClub The good thing is it's been going on for 33 years and now it's been exposed. Another sign the tide is turning.
