Damian Green Was Fired by Theresa May For Lying, Jeremy Hunt Acknowledges

Deputy Prime Minister Damian Green has resigned as First Secretary of State

Mr Green has stepped down from two roles: first secretary of state and cabinet office minister.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's de facto deputy resigned Wednesday night, after he admitted to misleading the public with two statements regarding allegations that he kept pornography on his work computer in 2008.

However, the Health Secretary said the police still had questions to answer, over the 2008 raid on Mr Green's Commons office, when pornographic images were found on his computer.

"I share the concerns that have been raised by police, and I expect those issues be properly investigated", May said in a press conference during her visit to Poland.

Alphabet No Longer Needs Eric Schmidt's 'Adult Supervision'
The 62-year-old has reportedly had romantic relationships with women outside Google, according to sources who spoke to the WSJ. Schmidt, who joined Google in 2001 and served as its chief executive for a decade, will remain on the company's board.

Sources close to Mr Davis said he had warned Downing Street against sacking Mr Green but in the aftermath of his forced resignation, sources close to the Brexit Secretary said he would not be resigning in protest.

"I have also carefully considered the report's conclusions in relation to two statements you made on 4 and 11 November which you now accept were inaccurate and misleading, " the prime minister wrote in a letter requesting Green to step aside.

In his resignation letter, from his post as First Secretary of State, he continued to deny "unfounded and deeply hurtful" claims that he downloaded or viewed the material.

The Prime Minister, who asked him to stand down, said she was "extremely sad" at his exit.

Ignore Rahul, build the party, Modi tells BJP

Maltby said Green had "fleetingly" touched her knee during a meeting in a pub and later sent a suggestive text after a picture of her wearing a corset appeared in a newspaper.

"And I think that is what will reassure people that, in these very challenging national circumstances that we are in, that we do actually have someone who has that ability to lead the country".

"I regret that I've been asked to resign from the government following breaches of the Ministerial Code, for which I apologise".

Green's sacking follows the November resignations of Sir Michael Fallon as defence secretary amid Westminster sleaze allegations, and global development secretary Priti Patel over undisclosed meetings in Israel.
