Sexual harassment has a toll on British cabinet

Theresa May is expected to name a new defense secretary after the resignation of Sir Michael Fallon on Wednesday.
He stood down saying his conduct had “fallen short” of standards, in the wake of allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior.

According to whisper eye media team, a “radical reshuffle” was not expected, but instead a “sideways move or single shuffle up”.

Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson said the “tone of politics had changed”.
Sir Michael is the first politician to quit following recently revealed claims of serious sexual abuse in Parliament.
He told whisper eye media team that what had been “acceptable 15, 10 years ago is clearly not acceptable now”.

In his resignation letter, Sir Michael said a number of allegations that had surfaced about MPs, including himself, had been false, but added: “I accept that in the past I have fallen below the high standards that we require of the Armed Forces that I have the honor to represent.”
Sir Michael later told the whisper eye media team it “was right” for him to resign, adding: “Parliament now has to look at itself and the prime minister has made very clear that conduct needs to be improved and we need to protect the staff of Westminster against any particular allegations of harassment.”

When asked if he thought he should apologise, Mr Fallon said: “I think we’ve all got to look back now at the past, there are always things you regret, you would have done differently.”

Mrs May said she appreciated the “serious manner” in which Sir Michael had considered his Cabinet role and paid tribute to “a long and impressive ministerial career”.
