Theresa May's effective deputy Damian Green quits over pornography cover-up
24 December, 2017, 03:52
The Health Secretary claimed it was part of a recent pattern which had seen Mrs May bounce back from "incredible pressures" to success in the Brexit talks and at Westminster.
"He admitted that Mr Green had been sacked because he had "lied", dropping the pretence that he had been "asked to resign" after what were called "misleading" statements". An investigation was launched by the cabinet secretary, and it was determined that Green did not adhere to the "seven principles of public life"-one is honesty-as required by the ministerial code". The latter role will need to be filled, but the former - which renders the incumbent the de facto deputy prime minister - could technically be left vacant.
Mr Davis, now the Brexit Secretary, was Mr Green's boss at the time of the 2008 police raid on his Commons office.
Green lost his job at the top of government after he was found to have made "misleading" statements about allegations that police found pornography on computers in his parliamentary office in 2008.
He said: "I think that is clear sadly from the letter that were exchanged but I think that doesn't mean that it isn't a very, very sad moment for us who are colleagues of Damian who know what a capable minister he was, how committed he was throughout his whole career to the most vulnerable people in society".
Green's sacking follows the November resignations of Sir Michael Fallon as defence secretary amid Westminster sleaze allegations, and worldwide development secretary Priti Patel over undisclosed meetings in Israel.
Mr Hunt has already been tipped as a potential successor and he suggested he could be open to such a move, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme that Cabinet appointments "are a matter for the Prime Minister".
"I'm sure she didn't want him to go", Hunt said.
Jess Phillips, the Labour MP most critical of Mr Green's conduct, welcomed his sacking, but criticised the inquiry for taking "longer than it needed to".
The Cabinet investigation did not yield a conclusion about sexual misconduct allegations writer Kate Maltby made against Green.
Smith said the investigation is ongoing, and "anybody that saw this guy chase this victim, we want to interview them". Smith also said that the lot is a huge crime scene, but no weapons were found and no one was injured, per Bollier.
