After being found watching porn in the House of Commons, a British MP resigns, claiming he came across it while hunting for tractors on the internet.

Neil Parish, a British politician, has resigned from parliament after confessing to watching porn in the House of Commons.

Parish, a Tory MP, was named as the mystery politician spotted watching pornographic video twice by two female colleagues during a meeting on Saturday, April 30.

Parish had earlier stated that he would not quit after being suspended from the parliamentary Conservative Party over the allegations, but he has since admitted to seeing porn by accident and stated that he is ‘not proud’ of his actions.

British MP resigns after being caught watching porn in the House of Commons; claims he stumbled across it when looking for tractors on a website

He claimed that the first time he saw pornography was by chance while looking at tractors, but that the second time was on purpose.

‘The scenario was that – interestingly enough, it was tractors I was looking at,’ he recalled in an interview with BBC South West.

‘I did go to another website with a very similar name and watched it for a while, which I shouldn’t have. But my crime — my biggest offense – is that I went in again on another occasion.’

‘That was deliberate… that was sitting waiting to vote on the side of the chamber,’ he added when asked if it was intentional.

‘What I did was very wrong,’ he added.

‘I was wrong, dumb, and out of my mind,’ he admitted.

He denied, however, that he was watching the content in the hopes that it would be seen by others.

‘I sincerely apologize. I sincerely apologize. He stated, “It was not my goal to frighten.”

‘I mean, I’ve been in Parliament for 12 years and certainly have – or had – one of the best reputations in the world.’

‘I don’t know, I believe I must’ve taken entire leave of my senses and sensibilities and my sense of decency, everything,’ he replied when asked why he chose to see the material in the Commons.

He claimed that he was ‘not justifying what I did for a single second,’ and that the best thing he could do was to ‘speak the truth.’
