U.K. politician Neil Parish resigned from his position after he accidentally opened “tractor porn” on his phone in the House of Commons.

The former farmer came across “tractor porn”, which refers to a sexual position when looking at tractors on his phone. Interested in learning more, he strayed away from tractors to searching for something not appropriate for work.

The 65-year-old conservative legislator described his actions as having a “moment of madness” when he looked at porn while waiting for a vote. Parish admitted that he watched the NSFW video “for a bit, which I shouldn’t have done.”

Unfortunately for Parish, this wasn’t the end of tractor-gate. He was caught looking for porn deliberately while working on a second occasion by two female MPs. They filed a formal complaint about the incident.

Parish has made a “full apology” to the legislators that caught him in the act, insisting that it was “not my intention to intimidate” them. He ultimately resigned less than 24 hours after he announced he would refuse to leave his seat.

A group of conservative colleagues voiced their opinions on the matter so soon to an election: “It was hard to see how he could come back, given the public exposure,” one MP said.
