Scandal in the British Parliament! It is reported that a Conservative MP watched pornography on his cell phone in a conference room. The leader of the Conservative Party group, Chris Heaton-Harris, announced Wednesday the opening of an investigation into the behavior “totally unacceptable”.
According to information from the “Daily Mirror” newspaper, the accused is a member of the government. The newspaper reported that one of his colleagues in the cabinet, sitting next to him, witnessed the incident and reported it. The Sun wrote that shocked MPs had asked Heaton-Harris to expel the MP from the group.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said sexual misconduct was grounds for dismissal. Johnson said in the House of Commons on Wednesday that misogyny had no place in Parliament.
Dozens of complaints of sexual harassment
There is currently a heated debate in the UK about sexism in politics. The Mail on Sunday reports that several Conservative MPs will make allegations against the opposition Labor Party’s deputy leader, Angela Rayner. She is supposed to distract Johnson during the prime minister’s weekly questioning by deliberately placing her legs as she sits in front of him. Johnson sharply criticized the anonymous comments and expressed his support for Rayner.
It was also announced on Sunday that three members of the government and dozens of other members of Parliament had been reported to an appropriate oversight body on charges of alleged sexual harassment. At a high-level crisis meeting on Tuesday evening, a number of Conservative MPs described their experiences with misogyny in Parliament, The Sun newspaper reported. A spokeswoman for Johnson denied allegations that the Conservatives had a sexism problem. (SDA)
