The revelations sparked fresh concerns about sexual misconduct and sleaze in Westminster.

One Tory MP told The Sun on Sunday: “Apparently there is a new sex pest list of people to stay away fromacross all the political parties.

“It is very grim.”

They warned that younger, female staffers are particularly at risk.

“Terwyl 90 per cent of the people here are well behaved, daar is 10 per cent or so who are not.”

Vroeër vandeesmaand, Arbeid MP Charlotte Nichols said there was a “whisper network” of dangerous MPs to stay away from.

Sy het die BBC: “Everyone has a kind of whisper network list of the people to avoid, but the problem is that some of the most dangerous people are people who would be the people you least suspect.

“When I first came into parliament, there was a group of people that I knew who kind of sat me down and gave me a list of MPs who I should never accept a drink from, who I should never be alone with, who I should never get in a lift with, and who I should try to avoid as far as possible to keep myself safe.”

Parliament considering bringing in new rules to ban MPs who are charged with violent or sexual crimes from the building.

But many MPs think this will not do very much to change the “toxic” culture of Westminster as most of those accused of predatory behaviour have not been charged by polisie.
