Harassment reports rock UK Parliament
London: The scandal surrounding Britain's political class has deepened with more allegations of sexual harassment, abuse of power and other misdeeds.
First Secretary of State Damian Green on sunday denied a newspaper claim that police had found "extreme" pornography on his computer nine years ago.
Green called the Sunday Times report "completely untrue" and said it came from an untrustworthy tainted source.
He is in effect Prime Minister Theresa May's deputy and a senior Cabinet figure. Green is already being investigated for alleged inappropriate advances to a Conservative Party activist.
A rising number of legislators from the Conservative and Labour parties face similar allegations.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd has denied the Government is on the verge of collapse over the sexual misconduct allegations currently engulfing
Asked by the BBC's Andrew Marr if the fallout threatens to bring down Theresa May's administration, Rudd said: "Absolutely not.
I think it is something that will take place, in terms of clearing out
Westminster of that sort of behaviour, and Westminster, including the government, will be better off after it.
It will be a positive thing."
Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has resigned, and de facto Deputy Prime Minister Damian Green is under fire over a number of allegations he has denied.
