British Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for Braintree, Brooks Newmark, has resigned as minister for civil society over threats of a sex scandal.


Newmark handed in his resignation after he was informed on Saturday that a scandalous story about him was going to be published in a Sunday newspaper.   


The married father of five children and campaigner to raise the role and number of women in politics was allegedly caught while sending explicit photos of himself over the internet to a woman who was in fact a reporter.

“I have decided to resign as minister for civil society having been notified of a story to be published in a Sunday newspaper,” he said, adding, “I would like to appeal for the privacy of my family to be respected at this time. I remain a loyal supporter of this government as its long-term economic plan continues to deliver for the British people.”

According to a Downing Street spokesman, British Prime Minister David Cameron has accepted his resignation and Rob Wilson, the Conservative MP for Reading East, has been appointed as his replacement.

Newmark was elected MP for Braintree in 2005 and appointed a Cabinet Office minister as part of Cameron's last cabinet reshuffle in July.

The Minister for Civil Society is a United Kingdom government Cabinet Office position which deals with charities, volunteering, social enterprises and the “Big Society” agenda of the Coalition government.

The resignation comes as a second blow to Cameron’s Conservative government on the eve of his party's conference, following the defection of a Conservative lawmaker Mark Reckless to the rival UKIP party earlier on Saturday.

Another Zionist pervert:

This Newmark is a part of the cabal of warmongers and global fleecers that have hijacked UK, US and most of the so-called west. These sick degenerates have no conscience and are responsible for global moral, political and economic decline. It is time the western sheeple wake-up to the dangers of global Zionist criminals.

Why should Mr. Newmark resign?

More than 23000 items of treasure the Britsih looted are sill in the British Museum. The PM refused to return to their real owners.

Mr. Newmark's so-called scandle of personal sex photos cannot hold a candle to darkness of kleptocracy of Britain.

There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.-Victor Hugo
