Neil Parish, A British MP from the ruling Conservative Party has resigned after admitting he watched pornography on his mobile phone in the House of Commons.
Neil Parish, a Member of Parliament since 2010, announced his decision Saturday after pressure from members of his own party who wanted to defuse allegations of sleaze before the UK holds its local elections on May 5.
The ballot is seen as key for Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is already facing a voter backlash over lockdown-breaking parties in government offices during the COVID-19 pandemic. Neil Parish, 65, resigned after what he described as a moment of madness.
Neil Parrish, chair of the home’s Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs Committee, said he had been trying to check out a jar site on the Internet, but had found a porn site with a similar name and had seen it “a little bit.”
“My biggest crime is that the other time I went there for the second time,” he told the BBC. That was definitely done on purpose.
Reports that a lawmaker had watched porn in the House of Commons triggered a flood of complaints from women in Parliament about the sexism and sexual harassment they have faced while doing their jobs.
