This bloke appears to have downloaded and viewed pornographic images by the thousand on his House of Commons computer. Naturally, he denies this. If he was really innocent, he'd be threatening to sue. But he isn't.

So an ex-copper who was investigating the now-proven allegations that Green was a leaker-in-chief has now blown the whistle on this greasy, slimy Tory. Naturally, the establishment in their droves are crawling out of the woodwork in order to defend him. 'Twas ever thus.

So where does this leave us on Royal weddings? Most dark beers taste burnt. The worst offender is draught Guinness, which relies on burnt malt for its bitterness rather than hops. Guinness is not a highly-hopped beer. Basically that means it isn't especially good for you. Frankly, it's a bloody poor do.

we have several problems here

1) pornography on a works computer - pornography is a well known vector for malware. There would be records from that time - police notebooks, statements at an inquiry. On any works computer it is a concern, on a government PC it is a security issue. RBS had problems, TK MAX, Uber and a load of outfits who haven't come clean, how did they happen? Who knows? But the weakest link in a computer system is the human, and there are enough of them to fall for phishing in any outfit. It only takes one!

2) integrity of police officers is called into question. Retired police officers are not bound by the same disciplinary code as serving officers. But it does impact the image of the police.

3) There is a cover up, which may be in the interests of the country's security, but see 1). You choose which takes precedence in the long shadow of Russian interference in elections and referenda.

4) the only reason that Labour politicians are not dragged into such an issue is chance.

5) Politicians spend long hours on government business, and marriages suffer as a result. It was proposed 40 years ago by a serving MP that: "there is a case for a Westminster brothel to be set up". Surely there is a case for parliament to provide safe PCs for extra curricular surfing for the same reason.

BTW parliamentary bed hopping is nothing new. I was told by the son of Harold Wilson's solicitor that there was a contractual agreement drawn up for his wife to not pursue divorce over adultery with Marcia Williams. And the Marcia connection has been confirmed since by many who were there at the time.

It's a jungle out there.

Any person that mixes business with "pleasure" on a works computer is either exceedingly naive, or a reckless fool. For any MP to do a similar thing is also rather dumb. What is found on an internet linked computer may not solely be due to the efforts of the owner, especially if targeted.

Anyone who downloads pornographic material, via his employer's network, on to his employer-provided Work-computer has, by so doing, proved that he is far too stupid to be trusted with the responsibilities of high office.

Just as I would have been fired for Gross Misconduct if I'd done it on my work-computer, he should be fired - on the basis of Gross Misconduct, and that he is too stupid to be a government minister.

The ex-cop may be genuinely acting in what he now considers to be the public interest, now that Green is effectively second-in-command of the country. When the material first came to light (during an investigation that showed Green to be dishonest, by the way), Green was not a member of the government. The accusation against Green holds far more water than your accusation that the cop has a grudge, an accusation for which you have no evidence.

If that is what has happened, I would say it warrants a far more extensive investigation than the porn itself. It posits a third party with write access (and therefore read access) to a PC which contains secure information. That matters.

The policeman has said that it's inconceivable that Green had not viewed the porn. I take it from that that the stuff wasn't particularly hiding behind hard passwords, etc. If Green knew that the porn was there but that someone else had installed it, he would have done what the rest of us would have done in the same circumstances: made a bloody great big stink about it. Which he didn't do. What if I'd found porn on my school laptop, did nothing about it and then had it discovered by the head? I'd be sacked, that's what.

DMcG. Rumour has it that the whips have a little black book that enables them to keep certain MPs malleable.
   It follows on that it is no stretch to the imagination that other persons/groups/countries seek similar means of control. If company computers in one country can be troubleshooted by the IT dept. in another country, then I am sure Joe Bloggs computer is very vulnerable to hacking. I wonder just what security protocols exist for the computer/s of an MP. Posession of pornography does no favours to a reputation and certain forms of pornography will destroy it.

Nothing said: he let the establishment look after him (which included the police keeping quiet about the porn), faux-outrage to the fore, just as they're trying to do now. He is not a fit and proper person to be in his current exalted position. Anyway, his days are numbered. That's a confident prediction.

I don't think so.

Under our constitution the House of Commons is de facto the sovereign power.
Therefore the MPs run the show and do everything - pay their wages, set their wages and so forth and have no superiors i.e. employers - just as long as they can get permission from voters every 5 years or so.

Sorry, mate, this whole shenanigans is about porn on his work computer.

From your Telegraph link:

In October Chris Wright, the Director of Security and Intelligence at the Cabinet Office, wrote to Bob Quick, the Assistant Commissioner for Special Operations, to seek a criminal investigation. The letter claimed that there had been "considerable damage to national security already" and the "potential for future damage is significant".
Within three weeks the Police were on the case after it appeared that Mr Galley made his fist [sic] mistake. The Tories had been passed a document that appeared to be a letter from the Home Secretary to the Prime Minister warning that crime figures would rise in the coming recession. It was only a draft, the letter was never sent.
On November 19 the police questioned Mr Galley and over the next 17 hours it became clear that he had regularly supplied Mr Green. While it is not an offence to be a passive recipient of leaked documents, anyone who incites a public servant to break a confidence can be at risk of arrest. The next day Mr Quick was told that a senior MP was implicated in the leaks so he sought "legal advice" because of concerns about "Parliamentary privilege and the rights of the police on the Parliamentary estate".
Warrants were obtained for Mr Green's home and constituency offices but crucially not for his Parliamentary office. The police were told that under the terms of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act unless consent was refused by the Parliamentary authorities, one was not required.


Green was the willing recipient of leaked documents. That, in addition to the pornography found on his computer that he appears never to have complained about (wouldn't you if you thought someone had installed it on your computer?), adds up to a bloke who is unfit for public office, his integrity in tatters. It could well be that he's adding lying to his list of transgressions now. Can't be sure for now, of course.

Even bare bum 'n' tit-wagging in shagging scenes on telly revolt me. However, porn exists, much of it is legal, unfortunately, and it's not my business if someone chooses to use porn in the privacy of their own homes (sad buggers in my opinion, but hey). But this was a computer provided for him to do the important work he was paid to do, not use it to download fodder for his little worktime "diversions."

"Except the claims....of ex-cops with a grudge"

Where is your evidence of this simply being a matter of them holding a 'grudge'? Do you know the gentlemen personally? Have you discussed their views with them?

"It was ten years ago"

Are you claiming that there is a Time-Limitation on government ministers' Gross Misconduct? Evidence that this is the case?

We're waiting.....

Steve,
He was in possession of leaked documents disadvantageous to the then Labour government.

Was he? Nothing was found by the police. Where did you get that from Steve?

When the material first came to light (during an investigation that showed Green to be dishonest, by the way),

Really? Where did you get that from?
