British Defense Minister resigned because of women's knees

59
The press service of the main military department of the United Kingdom circulated a message that British Defense Minister Michael Fallon resigned. According to the latest information, Fallon’s resignation was accepted by the country's Prime Minister Teresa May. The reason for the resignation called the scandal, in the center of which it was Fallon.


It is noteworthy that this scandal flared up against the background of an event 10-year-old. In the wake of “fashion”, revelations by individual women about the alleged sexual harassment of influential men by influential men went to Fallon.

One of the journalists suddenly remembered that Fallon "carried out in her respect the actions of a sexual nature." When Britain began to delve into the essence of the incident, it turned out that Michael Fallon, who was at that time a member of the House of Commons, put his hand on the knee of the journalist Julia Hartley-Bruyere, who asked him questions.

Then the scandal did not flare up, but now it led to the resignation of the minister - after a series of publications in the British media.

Fallon himself said that there were many accusations against him, and he himself calls most of them false. And right there Fallon adds literally the following (quote RIA News):
But I admit that in the past I behaved inappropriately for the Armed Forces, which I have the honor to represent. I made conclusions and therefore resign.


He served in the post of Defense Minister Fallon in 2014.

      You are right about plainness. He is fired for this. If he was drawn to an Englishwoman, then there are signs of a maniac, they are too unpretentious, English journalists, and this one seems to stand out even among them.
      For ten years, remember how someone * put his hand on his knee * what kind of memory is it? Or was it the only case in her life that was so impressed in her memory?

          Well, probably, but these military "ladies" - transvestites - will definitely not put their hands on women's knees!
          Ha! Go England! Dear transvestites in the English sun! laughing

            Just do not make up your mind about the Vestites, huh. The article clearly states that he put his hand on the knee of Julia Hartley-Bruyere, which means that your speculation is groundless.
            It is noteworthy in this story that Fallon resigned after a series of publications in the British media. With such freedom of the press, you do not need to dream of multi-room apartments for your mistresses, and even more so about part-time lovers and supervising financial flows. Such a jamb “there they would have unearthed it at that moment and then the minister would have to answer not only for his immoral behavior, but also under the threat of a real term to report to the tax authorities for their expenses and income. loyalty, but for competence. Maybe that’s why they beat off a modern aircraft carrier, but we don’t have any attendants, and in fat years and thought it didn’t even occur to seriously cover the ships operating at a distance from our airfields from the air?

              In your opinion, if he is a military man, then he’s not a man ?! Yes, they - the military - really like civil women! They are the complete absolute opposite to them! Such women attract military men to themselves, as in the electric charges “-” and “+”.
              And what is bad for a brave military man, this sex-sawing "wench" journalist Julia Hartley-Bruyere, so that according to Freud, "inadvertently" not touch her knee? She’s cute, and if she’s also smart, for men it’s just “blowing the roof”!

              Well, he touched - made a kind of compliment to her that she was charming as a woman! She would have forgiven him for this - and would have split up and forgot about it! The main thing is that he did not chase after her and did not rape, if there was anything at his age! lol
              I would be funny! I would simply defiantly take off his hand and say to him: "Don't be shawls! I don't like this! I’m nobody!" They would smile at each other - and dispersed. He’s not a maniac!

              Yes, not “freedom of the press” (what kind of freedom is there without money), but a means of routine reprisals against competitors. When necessary, presidents are also buried there, not like a "free" press. I’m worried about another question. They’ve got a fight at the feeding trough, but we don’t. Why?

                And depending on what is meant by the word “free.” Independent-independent, it’ll be more accurate. But the meaning doesn’t change --- the opposition press is vigilantly monitoring the actions of the ruling parties and, at the slightest suspicion, --- kindly resign, sir.

              You seem to live in a world of western illusions. The press, in the same England, on such a short leash that Russia against this background, is simply an ideal of freedom. Try in the West, something blather in the direction of those in power, something that is not appropriate, instantly learn the "charms" of democracy. They can dismiss and take away the license, and even they will instruct everyone in the brand, be healthy. In another case, interested circles close to the elite give the go-ahead the go-ahead and place an order to discredit an objectionable figure (in this case, Michael Fallon). And then it started, poured tons of dirt. And the insignificant events of ten years ago are "remembered" and the "witnesses" are, besides the corrupt magazines, various organizations are connected, from the feminists to the LGBT people, as a result, the desired effect is achieved. An objectionable official or politician resigns in disgrace. And please, I ask you, there is no need to tell tales about the "free, not corrupt, free and not good" Western press.

                C'mon, on a short leash, but this is the party’s leash. And it’s quite reasonable that it is not shy to use it in the election and political struggle. For the country, this is a plus in the fact that it disciplines officials of any rank (after all, there are not only metropolitan magazines, but and at the municipal level. Try with such fierce competition, get yourself an estate or buy an expensive yacht (well, or real estate in Karelia, for example, London scribblers will quickly dig this out and this will end the career quickly). This applies to the very top. And for ordinary people don’t worry, there the trade unions are fighting for them, the thing for our country is completely forgotten, because there they are independent, and we are on a complementary basis. A million people were withdrawn in France when the workers fought for their rights and told the government decisively “No!” And they knocked out privileges for themselves and no one even hinted that they were loosening the system. On the contrary, by involving the masses in an active protest, their trade unions only strengthen the state.

                  Excavate only if a command is given. Without a team and support, the very zealous and truthful Western journalists can cruelly pay for their careers, sometimes even freedom and head. There are a lot of cases. And the scribblers there know all this very well.
                  And do not worry about ordinary people, there unions fight for them
                  If you mean the 60-90s, then yes, it was such a thing. But with the collapse of the Union, this "shop" is hiding, they have no one else to prove that they have "better" .. There is no one else to equate, you can also "tighten the screws". An 8-hour working day in the West, more and more often goes into the field of memories, social guarantees are reduced, and trade unions are increasingly controlled by the corporations themselves. Nor can I understand people like you who idealize the West. Not everything is good there, but in some aspects is even worse than for example in Russia.

                    Orionvit, you are one hundred percent right, with the collapse of the social. camps, western gentlemen breathed a sigh of relief. They no longer need to pay out high wages to workers and employees. Unions have lost their militancy.
                    They all no longer have anyone to compete with - they won, and we lost ...
                    Look for the proletariat in the Russian Federation. No. I wonder what kind of trade union office hamsters are united in. And how do they “fight” for the rights of hamsters?
                    Freedom of Speech is export candy. The media is “free” as much as the “muzzle and strict collar” of the owner of this media concern gives them. It’s time to already understand that we, too, are stuck in the most I do not want in capitalism ... And our media belong to someone, expressing, thus, the policy of the "master". And, if someone feeds “ooh matzah” and “rain”, then this is their opinion ... (as I understand it, the owner of Russian gas), that is, his own liberal and quite state.

I was somehow extremely surprised by the reaction: somehow I shook hands with a foreign woman, helping to get out of the car, a natural, for me, Russian peasant, element of gallantry ... I had to see bewilderment in her eyes! If this happened in England, I would have run around with a kyle somewhere in the Grimpinsky quagmire ...

    It’s a mistake, not 10 years ago, but 15, in 2002. That’s why you need to remember so many who put their hand on their knees. For them it was an epoch-making event. fellow

    It was necessary to put a hand on the knee of a journalist, and not a journalist, more tolerant. P.I.d.- - - they do not judge.

    British Defense Minister resigned because of women's knees
    Does the British secretary of defense have female knees? Not good repeat
    But he didn’t suckle at the nurse’s side; are there no memoirs yet?
    The insanity of Western civilization and its values, just .... no words.

    How do they even reproduce there at such glances. It's not like a knee, breathing towards the opposite sex is dangerous

    Well this must be such a slow-thinking. Only 10 years later I realized that they put her hand on her knee. And the article was squeezed with joy.
    And this one is also a slug, immediately retired. Okay, I’d put it in. And maybe because the article because there was no continuation. But again, I thought for a long time. Obviously, it was a fabulously pleasant touch that left a lasting impression on life.

    And I think that he has more serious pranks there, so he quickly dumped something they still didn’t remember, for a prison term.
    And stop dreaming about Western freedom of speech. She is not in the West from the word “completely”, try to blather something “not in trend” in the West and you will be kicked out of work the next second after they are read (your employers). A lot of examples.
    In this sense, Russia is a complete paradise for lovers of the notorious “freedom of speech”.

    Ha! Go England! Dear transvestites in the English sun!

    Just do not make up your mind about the Vestites, huh. The article clearly states that he put his hand on the knee of Julia Hartley-Bruyere, which means that your speculation is groundless.
    It is noteworthy in this story that Fallon resigned after a series of publications in the British media. With such freedom of the press, you do not need to dream of multi-room apartments for your mistresses, and even more so about part-time lovers and supervising financial flows. Such a jamb “there they would have unearthed it at that moment and then the minister would have to answer not only for his immoral behavior, but also under the threat of a real term to report to the tax authorities for their expenses and income. loyalty, but for competence. Maybe that’s why they beat off a modern aircraft carrier, but we don’t have any attendants, and in fat years and thought it didn’t even occur to seriously cover the ships operating at a distance from our airfields from the air?

    “They drove off the aircraft carrier” - did you hear the parable about the “White Elephant”? The aircraft carrier was beaten off, and the rest of the fleet in the ass. Like the armed forces as a whole. Read at your leisure the speech of the representative of the UK MoD.
    Regarding competence, is this about Putin having billions in banks, that he personally poisoned Litvinenko, killed all the children in Syria, etc.? You don’t have to bother with something that’s not there - there all the crap pops up exactly as directed.
    And about corruption: ours is a kindergarten in comparison with them.
    So exhale and relax, and then to a stroke not far)))

    No, but what? Now this topic even works! Remember the same Dominic Strauss-Kahn when he became objectionable:
    [i] Dominic Strauss-Kahn was arrested at 16:40 on May 14, 2011 when he was on a plane of Air France, which was preparing to fly to Paris from John F. Kennedy Airport (New York). The arrest was carried out by agents in the civilian New York police. On May 16, Strauss-Kahn was charged with sexual assault and attempted rape by a maid of Nafissata Diallo. On August 22, the prosecutor's office turned to a court in New York with a request to partially or fully withdraw charges from D. Strauss-Kahn in connection with the loss of confidence in the plaintiff, who was convicted of multiple lies.

    That's the way no less — the IMF’s head was turned off for four months from the struggle for the presidency of France, simply because some illegal immigrant spied something on the New York police to have some money. And the most interesting - when her lie was established and Strauss-Kahn was released with a clear conscience - there was nothing to this maramike!

    In our country, the Minister of Defense would have resigned because of women's knees, only if he had grilled them, and even that, in public.
