GREEN PULLS OUT: Damian Green FIRED over porn scandal

THERESA MAY has FIRED her closest ally in Number 10, Damian Green – after he was found to have lied about porn found on his parliamentary computer.

Green, who was The First Secretary of State was “asked to resign” by the Prime Minister according to The Sun.

An official investigation into his behaviour found that he gave “inaccurate and misleading” comments to the public when he claimed it was untrue that porn had been found on his Commons computer.

Green is now the THIRD Cabinet Minister to quit in the past few months, calling into question the strength of Theresa May’s government.

Metropolitan police officers say they found the material when Green’s office was raided during an inquiry into leaks in 2008.

In his resignation statement, Green admitted he made misleading statements in his response to the porn allegations:

“I accept that I should have been clear in my press statements that police lawyers talked to my lawyers in 2008 about the pornography on the computers, and that the police raised it with me in a subsequent phone call in 2013.

“I apologise that my statements were misleading on this point.

“The unfounded and deeply hurtful allegations that were being levelled at me were distressing both to me and my family and it is right that these are being investigated by the Metropolitan Police’s professional standards department.”
