You know that Tory Minister who’s accused of having mountains of porn on his work computer?

Yes that guy, the Deputy Prime Minister – the Tory who still denies ‘downloading or looking at’ porn at work, despite the fact that the police say there’s ‘absolutely no doubt whatsoever‘ it was him?

Well, someone’s been doing some digging – and what they found is utterly incredible.

In news that exposes absolutely jaw-dropping hypocrisy within the upper echelons of our current shambolic Tory government, it has emerged that Kent County Council – the local authority in Damian Green’s own Constituency – was forced to sack 2 employees for viewing porn at work in 2013.

And whilst the Council sacked two of its workers, another employee was also forced to resign after being caught accessing pornography on Council computers.

Yes, this is the same thing that Damian Green is accused of doing (oh, apart from the fact that Green’s accusation is much worse because he is accused of looking at barely legal ‘extreme’ porn).

And yes, Damian Green – our Deputy Prime Minister – is also under investigation for allegedly abusing his position by making inappropriate sexual advances towards a young Tory activist.

This is the same Tory Minister who, despite the plethora of accusations against him, has still not been suspended by his party.

The same Tory Minister who, despite the actual mountain of accusations against him, was inexplicably thrust into the spotlight of PMQs last Wednesday – a situation which Labour’s Emily Thornberry took full advantage of.

In stark contrast to his alleged prowess in hand-starting the one-eyed yoghurt thrower, Green’s performance at PMQs was a desperately disappointing flop.

Adding to the pain of his embarrassing performance during PMQs, Damian Green was also caught laughing after being asked about the fact his Constituency A&E is closing down.

Following the porn accusations against Green, a poll conducted by BMG research indicated that 56% of the public believe that MPs who are alleged to have watched or downloaded porn on a parliamentary computer should be sacked or asked to resign.

Given all of the aforementioned accusations, it is utterly incredible that Damian Green has still not been suspended by his party pending investigation.

Especially given the fact that Labour have suspended all MPs who are under similar investigations over alleged sexual harrasment and abuse.

And even more so given the fact that one of his own MPs, Anna Soubry – a former employment lawyer – has literally said that he should be suspended pending investigation (as would happen with any other employer).

However, given Theresa May’s precariously wobbly predicament in Parliament, it is not surprising that she has decided to make an absolute mockery of due process to keep one of her most loyal lackeys, Damian Green, in his position.

And after both Michael Fallon and then Priti Patel were forced out of May’s Cabinet, Green’s potential departure would almost certainly spell the end for the current administration.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
