Neil Parish was caught looking at pornographic images on two occasions during Parliament sessions

The first time he said it was accidental while looking for images of tractors and the second time was “a crazy moment”

At first he refused to resign, although he apologized.

The Conservative MP Neil Parish has tendered his resignation after being discovered while watching pornographic images on two occasions during sessions of Parliament. Parish defended itself at the time by saying that the first time accidentally came across the images while looking for photos of tractors — he is also a farmer by profession — and that the second was a “crazy moment”. The MP for Tiverton and Honiton had initially refused to resign although he did apologize for the “anger and damage” caused to his family and his electorate. The deputy tried to explain what happened in an exclusive interview with BBC South West. “The situation was that, interestingly, what I was looking at were tractors. I went to another website that had a very similar name and looked at it when I shouldn’t have,” she said. “But my crime,” she continued,the greatest crime is that on another occasion I entered for the second time. He was deliberate… he was sitting waiting to vote at the side of the chamber. It was an utterly insane and totally wrong moment.”I will have to live with this for the rest of my life. I made a big mistake and I’m here to tell the world about it,” he said. The Conservative section for his constituency ratified his resignation “appreciating the services provided over the last 12 years,” according to a statement collected by Sky News. “We support your decision to resign as a member of Parliament,” they add in the note. Parish, 65, was part of the House of Commons since 2010 and headed the Committee on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Previously, he had served as an MEP representing the British Conservative Party. Complaints against Parish they started from two groupmates who contacted the ‘tory’ leadership in the House. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Thursday that if confirmed, it would be “totally unacceptable behaviour” in any workplace.
