Damian Green: 'Investigation must not turn into witch hunt against police', says Tory MP

An investigation is to take place over allegations against Damian Green

The investigation into the Damian Green pornography claims must not turn into a witch hunt against the police, a Tory MP has said. 

Green has been sacked as the First Secretary Of State over "inaccurate and misleading" statements about what he knew about allegations of pornography being found of his office computer. 

An investigation by the Information Commissioner is now to take place into the two former police officers who allegedly leaked the information about Green's computer to the media. 

Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen told George Galloway: "I wouldn’t want that to turn into a witch hunt against the police."

George also agreed, and said "if this turns into a witch hunt of the two police officers involved no good will come of it."

Bridgen thinks "the Prime Minister quite rightly called for his resignation and he gave it" as "you can get away with many things in Parliament but I would suggest that misleading the Prime Minister or your own whips office is not one of them."

George also suggested that if Green was looking at pornography at work "he’s too stupid to be a member of Parliament, too stupid to be a minister."
