Porn-watching parliamentarian leaves British House of Commons

British Conservative MP Neil Parish has resigned. The MP has admitted to watching pornography on his phone twice in the British House of Commons.

Parish had already been suspended by his party. “The anger I have invoked and the damage I am causing my family and my constituency mean I cannot continue,” he told the BBC. According to him, it was “a moment of weakness”. “I’m not proud of it.”

Parish, who is also a farmer, says he stumbled onto the porn site by accident. He was looking for tractors on a website with a similar name to the porn site. He glanced at it for a moment, then looked again at a meeting in parliament.

“And that was the biggest mistake,” he says. “That was intentional.” Parish says he won’t make excuses. “What I did was absolutely, hugely wrong.”

Two female MPs had complained about Parish. Conservative Prime Minister Johnson called Parish’s behavior unacceptable. Earlier this week, British media reported that a female minister had seen a male colleague watching porn in parliament. It was not clear then that it was Parish.
