Top UK MP caught watching porn inHouse of Commons while sitting next to female minister

While sitting alongside a female minister in the House of Commons, a Tory frontbencher was watching porn on his phone.

At a tense meeting of Tory MPs in Westminster Friday night, April 26, the frightened female minister told colleagues about the porn incident, according to the Mirror.

Around a dozen female MPs at the meeting, according to three sources, relayed experiences of alleged sexism and harassment by their colleagues.

New chief whip Chris Heaton-Harris, Tory party chair Oliver Dowden, and Commons leader Mark Spencer were all present at the gathering of between 40 and 50 Tory MPs known as the 2022 group.

Several female MPs expressed concern that the hostile environment within the party could discourage women from running for office.

One MP said: “It was like a blood-letting. Everybody was sharing awful stories of what had happened to them in the Commons at the hands of male MPs.

“[The chief whip] clearly hadn’t been expecting it and looked knocked for six. But the big question is what happens next”.

Another added: “They were genuinely shocked and horrified. They must realise that there are serious issues they need to address”.

The new Tory sexism storm comes after reports that 56 MPs, including three Cabinet ministers, are facing allegations of sexual misconduct after being reported to Parliament’s Independent Complaints and Grievance scheme.
