Labour deputy leader Tom Watson should resign as an MP after refusing to apologise for his handling of child sex claims against Lord Brittan, the former home secretary's brother has told ITV News.
Speaking after Mr Watson made a defiant statement in the House of Commons, Sir Samuel Brittan said Mr Watson should "apply for a job as steward of the Chilterns hundreds" - the Parliamentary language for resigning from the Commons.
Sir Samuel also accused Mr Watson of "looking for scandal" in his handling of the allegations he received against Lord Brittan.
Of course he should apologise for unfounded allegations. But I think he should do more he should apply for a good job as steward of the Chilterns hundreds. That is an office which was (for) anyone incompatible with being an MP - it's the way many MPs use to resign.
I don't think he knew anything about my brother. I think he was just looking for scandal because he's not intelligent enough to do his proper job as an opposition MP.
