Britain found itself in the abyss of several sex scandals at once. The first involved a member of the English parliament, another involved a BBC presenter, and the third involved a known investor.
In the first case, the charges were brought against prominent Conservative MP Julian Knight. Three unknown women claim that he, using his official position, harassed them, writes Politico.
He acted according to the same scenario: he invited young ladies under the pretext of discussing employment opportunities, after work problems he switched to a story about his personal life, not embarrassed by intimate details. In a meeting, most of the time the MP transferred her to a pub, where she bought her victim a drink. After talking about her work and life, she began to actively tease: she stroked her arm, hips, got under the hem of her dress. Not getting what she wanted, she began inundating women with numerous messages for several weeks, or even a month.
The events occurred in 2015, 2017 and 2018. All the victims were 20 years old when they met Knight. The women then felt that by going public with their confessions of harassment they would not achieve justice.

By the way, two other former Parliament employees, who worked with Julian Knight, also admitted that the MP asked them too intimate questions. Such actions (unsolicited personal questions and proposals that could be considered sexual harassment) are prohibited by the code of conduct for British parliamentarians.
Asked by reporters if these accusations were true, Nayt said that “none of these statements have any foundation.”
“These accusations have been repeatedly published in various media outlets over several years as part of an organized smear campaign against me, which is now being investigated,” the MP said. – Reporting this lawsuit misleads the audience and is slanderous.
Julian Knight was expelled from the Conservative Party last year after a complaint was filed against him with London police. Earlier this year, Essex Police confirmed they were investigating a complaint accusing an MP of sexual assault.
During the investigation, Knight promised not to attend Parliament meetings. However, he remains an active deputy.
11 years ago in Britain, the scandal surrounding the legendary presenter Sir Jimmy Savile, who for many years directed the popular children’s show Jim’ll Fix It, was in full swing. The English knew him for his eccentricity, but he was also highly respected as a philanthropist. However, a year after his death in 2011, Detective Mark Williams-Thomas testified that throughout his life, Savile sexually abused hundreds of people, both boys and girls, young and old.
And now, a decade later, the police discovered that a Savil follower was hunting within the walls of the same Air Force a few years ago. The presenter, who has not been identified, paid a teenager £35,000 a few years ago to send him lewd photos. Now the young man is 20 years old.

The police gave the station a month to conduct an internal investigation, after which the name of the suspect would be made public.
The Sun claims the pedophile presenter called the teenager twice after he was suspended from work, asking “What have you done?” And he also demanded that the boy’s mother stop the investigation.
For over thirty years, Crispian Odey has created an image of a flawless financier. For many years he was one of the most famous British hedge fund managers. But accusations of sexual harassment ruined his career in one day.
Recently, the Financial Conduct Authority announced that it was investigating a report of a sex scandal involving Odey to determine if he was eligible to work in the financial services industry.
After the allegations became public, Odey was forced to leave his company Odey Asset Management. The executive committee of the firm convinced him to make this decision. Indecent conduct has generally been accused of the financier before. He had to leave the leadership position in the company in 2021. But now they want to strip him of the certificate, after which he will not be able to work with any clients.
Previously, 13 women complained of sexual abuse and harassment by the financier, which occurred over the years. At the same time, Odey himself denies his guilt.
After Odey, his company, Odey Asset Management, will also be reviewed for possible violations of business principles due to “failure to conduct business with due skill, care and diligence, and failure to take reasonable steps to organize and control its asset affairs.” responsible way”. and efficiently.”
