British PM, Theresa May, forces deputy, Damian Green, to resign

British Prime Minister, Theresa May forced Damian Green, her deputy and closest ally, to resign last night after he admitted making “inaccurate and misleading” statements about pornography found on his parliamentary computer.

In the biggest resignation of the Westminster sex scandal, Mr Green was found to have lied when he denied knowledge of material discovered on his Commons computer by police in 2008.

According to The Times of London, a Cabinet Office inquiry also concluded that allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards Kate Maltby, a Tory activist and journalist 30 years his junior, were “plausible”.
