Also the ex-policeman chose to release the information in order to back up the claims that Damian Green had acted inappropriately in making sexual advances towards a much-younger-than-him female conservative activist during the last two years.

The furore about whether or not the ex-policeman acted properly is now overshadowing and distracting from the original inappropriate behaviour enquiry.

A cabinet minister with (it would seem) a reason to support net neutrality and online privacy, and who has good reason to think twice before launching any kind of 'moral crusade'? It might have benefits.

I feel sorry for the cleaning crew. I mean, I don't know about everyone else, but I don't just casually browse porn. If I'm watching porn I'm doing something else that definitely shouldn't be done at work.

The whole story is one big piece of hypocrisy and moral double standard, from the beginning to the end.
In several companies I've consulted for have policies that work computers aren't for personal use and people do get warnings etc. if they breach the policies.

Since the police went through the emails of the MP looking for evidence of who the leaker was, (and they comment emails were sent between browsing porn). one wonders what other irrelevant but potentially embarrassing facts about constituents or other people they may have garnered and kept note of? it is really quite secret police like.

Any policy is possible, at least theoretically. What happens in real life is another story.

If the national average of slacking at work is more than 30 minutes per day, even whacking off at work fits within the tolerance. Unless we have double standards, and pick our favourite issues to blame.
