The British government is under renewed pressure over the behaviour of its MPs
The British government is facing fresh sleaze allegations.
Theresa May’s deputy, Damian Green, is said to have had “extreme” pornography on one of his House of Commons computers that was searched during a investigation into government leaks in 2008.
The Sunday Times carries the claim made by a former Metropolitan Police assistant commissioner.
Green denies the allegation which comes days after he was accused of “inappropriate behaviour” towards a young Conservative party activist.

It’s also emerged that Sir Michael Fallon suddenly quit as defence secretary after a journalist told Downing Street he lunged at her and tried to kiss her on the lips after they lunched together in 2003.
Sir Michael stepped down on Wednesday citing “ill-judged” behaviour . The Observer reports Number 10 was compiling a list of “allged incidents” since the first complaints were made against him.

He must assume his constituents have lower standards than the Armed Forces.

The Conservative party says it’s now extending an inquiry into MPs sexual misconduct.
A string of Labour MPs have also had to respond to similar allegations.
