GIRL JOURNO: I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF FALLON
Flirty Mel gave him ‘the come-on’
A SAUCY journalist has admitted she gave former defence chief Sir Michael Fallon “the come-on”.
Columnist Melissa Kite revealed she flirted with MPs to get scoops for The Spectator.
She said she “took advantage” of Sir Michael to further her career and wished to apologise to every male MP she had taken to lunch and had “shockingly exploited”. But she said Sir Michael, who quit last week amid sexual harassment claims, was the “perfect gent”. And that was despite the fact that she “ever so slightly gave him the come- on” more than once and may have touched his knee.
Sir Michael quit after it emerged he touched the knee of radio broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer.
Melissa, 45, said she also “kissed a few frogs at Westminster thinking maybe I’d marry an MP”. She said one MP shut himself in a cupboard with her and another asked her to marry him.
She said: “There can be no excuse for genuine harassment and abuse. But flirting? Flirting makes the world go round.”
