Chris Pincher fights to remain MP despite investigation into ‘groping’


The Tory MP under investigation for allegedly groping two men said he is seeking “professional medical support” and hopes to return to his duties “as soon as possible”. Now sitting as an independent, Mr Pincher is battling to remain in the House of Commons despite opponents saying his position is untenable. Neil Parish, the former Conservative MP pressured to resign from the Commons after watching porn in Parliament, has accused No 10 of “double standards”. He said claims about Mr Pincher had been “swirling around Westminster for years” and suggested Downing Street would surely have been aware of them. He said Mr Johnson referred to the MP “laughingly in No 10 as ‘Pincher by name, pincher by nature’ long before appointing him” in February.
