Micheal Fallon British Defense Minister Resigns on Sexual ImproprietyCharges
Defense Secretary Michael Fallon tendered his resignation after allegations of sexual misconduct became public. Britain is rocked by allegations of sexual impropriety after Weinstein’s escapades were publicized.
Sir Michael Fallon’s resignation was immediately accepted by the prime minister. Fallon had just dealt with a major scandal on board the nuclear submarine HMS Vigilant and had authorized the dismissal of nine seamen, for throwing drug parties while on a visit to the US.
He had also approved the removal from command of two senior officers on grounds of violating a “no touch” rule with a female crew, on board a naval vessel. To his credit, Fallon admitted that he may have fallen below the required level of conduct in public life. He accepted that he had set a poor example for the men and women in the armed forces, reported CNN.
The allegations against the Defense Secretary surfaced when information became public that he had repeatedly touched a journalist’s knee during a dinner. The concerned journalist Hartley-Brewer had alluded to the incident which took place in 2002 without naming the DS, according to the BBC.
The prime minister has not approve of the behavior of Michael Fallon towards Julia Hartley-Brewer in 2002, but she has said that as the case was in the past there was no need for an investigation. Well men will be men.
