Tory MP Mark Menzies resigned as a ministerial aide last night after claims that he asked a Brazilian rent boy he was paying for sex to supply illegal drugs.

Mr Menzies was accused by Rogerio Santos of asking him to get hold of methedrone, a class-B drug dubbed the poor man’s cocaine, reports said.

Mr Santos, whom the MP is said to have met on a gay escort website, also claimed Mr Menzies, 42, paid for his services 18 months ago before showing him around Parliament.

Last night, Mr Menzies, a parliamentary aide (PPS) to International Development Minister Alan Duncan, said he was standing down from his post to fight ‘untrue’ allegations.

He said: ‘I have decided to resign as a PPS after a series of allegations were made against me in a Sunday newspaper. A number of these allegations are not true and I look forward to setting the record straight in due course.’

In reports last night, Mr Santos, said to be 19, claimed the Tory MP had paid him to have sex and asked him to obtain methedrone.

Texts on the Brazilian’s mobile phone apparently revealed messages asking him for full details about the quality of the drug and how much it cost.  (more...)
