Theresa May’s Defence Secretary Is Accused Of Touching A Female Journalist

Michael Fallon, the Defence Secretary of UK, has confessed to being the cabinet minister who repeatedly touched the journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer’s knee at a dinner in 2002.

While Previously, Julia Hartley-Brewer chose not to name him, now she condemned Fallon and wrote in a statement:

 “He repeatedly put his hand on my knee during a Conservative Party conference dinner”

“I calmly and politely explained to him that, if he did it again, I would ‘punch him in the face’,”

“He withdrew his hand and that was the end of the matter”

“I have had no issues since with the man in question and do not regard the incident as anything but mildly amusing.”

A spokesman for the Defence Secretary said: “Julia is a good friend of Michael’s. He overstepped the mark when he put his hand on her knee. She made it clear it was unwelcome and he rightly apologised 15 years ago.”

“I believe it is absurd and wrong to treat workplace banter and flirting – and even misjudged sexual overtures – between consenting adults as being morally equivalent to serious sexual harassment or assault,” Hartley-Brewer said in a statement.

Hartley-Brewer said she doesn’t want to take part in “Westminster witch-hunt.” and added: “I have not been a victim”.
