  3. It is beyond my comprehension how anyone could imagine that publicly revealing such slipshod behaviour re IT security could possibly act as a defence of a colleague (in both my paid job and my volunteer role I have to be security conscious – in one I administer my employer’s client database, and in the other I have control of NAS West Norfolk’s membership list, so I know whereof I write). The question is not whether Mr Green is guilty of a sackable offence, but only which sackable offence he is guilty of.

    • They think we’re all as f***ing THICK as them when they expect us to think it’s alright to allow people to log in on their passwords. They’re so imbecilic that they just don’t grasp how much injury they’re adding to insult by even suggesting such piffle – nevermind trying to palm it off as plausible.

      Maybe dorries believes (like the other gobshite ‘dicky’ davies) there’s a certain amount of nobility in defending a condemned idiot.

      They really are the weirdest, most unfit shower of shabbite EVER. They really are an excuse for mass euthanasia of the ruling classes.

  4. Sorry, this is dead cat strategy-I don’t believe a word of this-even Tory MP’s have enough nous to know what spyware & malware are & how they get on to computers & then infect the whole system-so should we really believe Parliament’s IT people have just realised this has been going on & have never picked it up in their monitoring?

  6. They make the law, make everyone else follow said laws for fear of fines/imprisonment/job loss.
    But.when MPs get caught breaking basic IT security, they.get the kid glove treatment or play the ‘not me guv’ trick. Time these individuals were made to do unpaid work in.foodbanks/homeless shelters/hospitals as forms of restitution.

  7. This means if you have been in contact with your MP your own data/cybersecurity is compromised. It means that any scumbag IT expert can obtain your details possibly with devastating results.
    I think we should start a campaign for the Data Commissioner to investigate immediately. I will post a copy of my email to my MP regarding this as soon as I work out how to do it, please help here.
    I think it’s a major issue that the MSM will skip.
    ps Do you think she is working for the Russians?

  8. I have read elsewhere that the HoP systems allow office staff to access email accounts without having to use the Minster (or whoever) password. It’s a fairly standard sort of office IT environment. There should also be Systems Admin systems in place to pick up the access and viewing of “banned” sites – oh yes, they know all. So there must have been a tacit rule in place that there were no off-limits web-sites for the whole of the Palace of Westminster. One wonders how many of the sites that were visited required payment too.

    Plus apparently the only office staff in Damien Greens’ office were two women and a gay bloke. I’m waiting to see who of those are sacked for accessing the extreme porn for hours after hour every day.

  12. This is brilliant, what a way to save your job, I left my pc on, gave my password to everybody that fancied it and they all wrote letters on my behalf, I wrote to the PM recently and said strong and stable was not a good idea, she said she never received it, she did however receive one saying it was a vote winner from me and on that basis held a general election, I never wrote it, someone was using my pc, perhaps they need to send all tory mp’s on fitness to work medicals. the part can you use a computer springs to mind
    1 can you download porn or have it mysterisously appear
    2. can you let anyone have your password and use your pc allowing them to read personal government files
    3. do you know about the data protection act and how to break it

    answer yes to any three of them and we want you.

    If I was not taking the mick don’t they think that this maybe just a little bit serious, silly me for entertaining such a thought we live in perfect tory bubble world
