Tory MP threatens to sue anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray, who wrongly accused him of watching porn

The Tory MP is threatening to sue controversial anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray, who wrongly suggested he was caught watching porn in the House of Commons in a now-deleted tweet.

  • Anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray threatened with legal action over tweet
  • Bray, 52, wrongly pointed a finger at a Conservative MP amid the Westminster porn scandal
  • It soon emerged that it had been Tiverton MP Neil Parish and not the accused.
  • An innocent member has now threatened to sue Mr Bray, who is loathed by Conservative MPs.

A Tory MP is threatening to sue anti-Brexit campaigner Steve Bray, claiming he wrongly suggested he was the MP caught watching porn in the House of Commons.

In a now-deleted tweet, Mr Bray appeared to hint at the identity of the unnamed MP.

When the story broke, Mr Bray posted a photo of a well-known Tory and a link to a previous story about him, adding: ‘It’s very relevant now, maybe not the story but the person! … I’m just going to check my mobile phone for some cool websites.”

But it became clear 48 hours later that he was another politician when Tiverton and Honiton MP Neil Parish admitted that he had used his phone to view pornography in the House of Commons.

The Mail on Sunday understands that the innocent MP is now threatening to sue Bray, sincerely hated by many Conservative MPs for his trademark ‘Stop Brexit’ megaphone protests outside Parliament, which have now morphed into denunciations of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Friends of the MP said last night: “He is taking legal advice on what action might be appropriate.” Yes [Steve Bray] he wants to stand in Parliament Square and shout and fool around, that’s up to him. But when he crosses the line, he can’t just do this.

“He talks shit, makes baseless accusations and has 95,000 Twitter followers, so he’s not insignificant.

You need to learn that you can’t get away with it.

Bray could not be reached for comment yesterday.

The legal threat arose when the anti-Brexit campaigner posted a video of himself interrupting a dinner at the Welsh Tory conference on Friday before he was led out of the room.
