Michael Fallon resigns, apparently due to a historical sexual harassment claim with a journalist whose knee he put his hand on. The whole sexual harassment/abuse allegations are like the expenses scandal mark two. However, I cannot believe Michael Fallon, a man who has never had an original thought in his life - a mouthpiece and attack-dog for those higher up or just more intelligent that him, would resign over such a matter. Let's be fair here: the allegation is minor. Stuff to temporarily damage a reputation, not destroy a career he's spent his life working on. Therefore there has to be more behind it. Much more serious allegations incoming, which Fallon knows will come out so has decided to get himself out of the spotlight already? Or was Tory HQ already planning on getting rid of him and found this a convenient moment to do so, as it simultaneously shows that the cabinet is very real about sealing with historical sexual harassment cases? Or was Fallon already planning on resigning as Hammond was planning to take money away from his ministry? Maybe Fallon was ready to take a sword for the party and draw attention away from the 36 man (maybe woman too) list. Strikes me as odd as it would only further investigation into that and just pour fuel on the fire. Funny business.
