David Cameron: He went on to face accusations that he once had sexual relations with a dead pig’s head.

David Cameron was reportedly blocked by Conservative MPs in his attempt to get them to voluntarily sign up to a code of conduct which could have given parliamentary staff extra protection from sexual harassment.

The former Prime Minister had attempted to get all parties and Commons Speaker John Bercow to back a move to give researchers and staff a right to seek arbitration, but met resistance from senior backbenchers.

Mr Cameron then in 2014 attempted to get Tory MPs to sign up to the code of conduct voluntarily but faced resistance from the influential 1922 committee of backbenchers, according to the London Evening Standard.
