UK PM Boris Johnson faces another scandal as deputy whip quits for 'drinking far too much'

Chris Pincher, 52, stepped down as the Deputy Chief Whip of the Conservative Party on Thursday night after admitting in his resignation letter that he 'drank far too much' on Wednesday

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, still under the shadow of the partygate scandal of Covid law-breaching parties in Downing Street, has been hit with yet another drunken scandal as an ally in charge of discipline within the governing party resigned.

Chris Pincher, 52, stepped down as the Deputy Chief Whip of the Conservative Party on Thursday night after admitting in his resignation letter that he "drank far too much" and "embarrassed myself and other people". There have been growing calls for Johnson to suspend him from the party after allegations emerged of him groping two men at a private members’ club in London.

"Last night I drank far too much," reads Pincher’s resignation letter.

"I think the right thing to do in the circumstances is for me to resign as deputy chief whip. I owe it to you and the people I've caused upset to, to do this," he said.

‘The Sun’ newspaper first reported the resignation, saying the senior Conservative MP was drinking at the Carlton Club in central London when he is said to have assaulted two other male guests. Several concerned Tory MPs contacted the Conservative whips' office to complain about his behaviour, the paper claims.
