Westminster ‘watershed moment’

BBC/Handout via Reuters

Britain’s Home Secretary Amber Rudd is seen talking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show in London on Sunday.

AFP-Jiji LONDON (AFP-Jiji) — British interior minister, Amber Rudd, declared Sunday that a scandal over sexual harassment rocking the country’s political circles was a “watershed moment” that was “clearing out” inappropriate behavior.

She denied that Prime Minister Theresa May’s minority government was at risk, after Michael Fallon quit as defense secretary last week and as two other ministers remain under investigation for misconduct.

Rudd told BBC television that the end result of the claims was “clearing out Westminster of that sort of behavior.”

“And I think that Westminster afterwards, including the government, will be better for it,” she said.Speech
