UK politician Neil Parish suggests he accidentally opened porn to Commons


A British politician has claimed he may have accidentally opened porn on his phone in the House of Commons.

Tory MP Neil Parish is currently being investigated for allegedly watching explicit videos near female colleagues, reports the BBC.

Two politicians have filed complaints after claiming they spotted him watching adult content on his phone nearby in the House of Commons.

The 65-year-old Tory lawmaker has made it clear he refuses to step down as an MP or other political office until he is found guilty.

“Following recent allegations about an MP’s use of his mobile phone in Parliament, I have referred myself to the House of Commons Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards,” Parish wrote on his website.

Parish, who has been a member of Britain’s parliament since 2010, said he will “co-operate fully with any investigation”.

Parish did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.

“Of course it’s embarrassing, and it’s embarrassing for my wife and my family.”

When asked by GB News broadcasters if he had accidentally opened something inappropriate on his phone, Parish replied: “I did, but let the investigation look into that.”

“Of course it’s embarrassing, and it’s embarrassing for my wife and my family, so that’s my main concern right now,” he said.

On Friday, Parish confessed to his wife, Sue Parish, about the alleged blunder as he fought back tears, according to the Times.

“I’m sorry you married a fool,” he said.

His wife told The Times that “it was all very embarrassing”, saying she was unaware of her husband’s attraction to pornography.

“No. He’s a totally normal guy, really. He’s a lovely person. It’s so stupid,” she told the newspaper.

If found guilty, the penalties include suspension or expulsion from parliament.
