According to the newspaper, Mr. Vaz hired two male escorts for sex and offered to cover the cost of cocaine. The paper alleges that the MP pretended to be a washing machine salesman. The politician has quit his post at the Home Affairs Select Committee, which has recently probed the use of class A drugs and whether sex workers. The newspaper claims that he sent text messages asking one of the escorts to “pick up some poppers”.
Sunday Mirror claims that Vaz was in relationships with two ‘Eastern-European prostitutes’. One of their ‘dates’ was filmed by one of them, Mr Vaz apparently said “we need to get this party started”, and the paper claims that he talked about having bareback sex with an escort.
The MP was involved in the debate on whether poppers should be banned, as the government originally proposed. Indeed Mr Vaz told Parliament: “Poppers have a beneficial health and relationship effect in enabling anal sex for some men who have sex with men.” A second report by the Sunday Mirror alleges that Mr Vaz tried to hide his identity, saying his name was Jim and that he sold industrial washing machines for hotels to wash towels in. In an audio recording, the MP boasts that the machines are “the size of this wall”.
