Is porn allegation MP the best to oversee online safety bill? Really?

Damian Green: he described the claims against him as ‘untrue and deeply hurtful’, when they were made.

Let’s get this straight: the chairman of the committee overseeing the Online Safety Bill has recused himself because of serious sexual assault claims – to be replaced by an MP who lost his cabinet post for having porn on his Parliamentary computers.

Is Damian Green (for it is he) really the best person to see this legislation onto the Statute Book?

He has replaced Julian Knight, who is being investigated by police.

Green lost his Cabinet job in 2017 after breaching the Ministerial Code by making “inaccurate and misleading statements” suggesting he was unaware of indecent material on his parliamentary computer.

In his resignation letter Green said that while he “did not download or view pornography on my parliamentary computers” he “should have been clear in my press statements that police lawyers talked to my lawyers” about it in 2008 and then raised it in a subsequent phone call in 2013.

Wouldn’t it be better if the Culture, Media and Sport committee was chaired by somebody who didn’t have any allegations of dodgy sexual behaviour in their past – either online or in real life?

    I doubt if any tory MP is fit for any post in government….Just take a look at all the crimes this tory criminal Cartel have committed, and still are committing….from lying to the people, to theft,fraud, corruption, social murder, involved in corporate manslaughter….Why these criminals are allowed to stay in office, is beyond me…They have proven that they are above the law.

    Damian Green is a very suitable person to be chair of committee overseeing the Online Safety Bill because he has expert knowledge of how to access porn whilst simultaneously claiming ‘wah I didn’t know my parliamentary computer has porn downloaded!’

    Too many rotten fascist tories still being given powerful roles!

    Definitely not. How dare he even think he can. Disgusting.
    About time they stop hiding behind politics.
    Making themselves look good and being paid a mint in the process.
    When everyone else in the Country are struggling.
    Saying they have no money for any of us.
    How dare any of them. 😠😠
