    Damian Green

    A former Scotland Yard detective has told BBC News he was "shocked" by the amount of pornography viewed on a computer seized from the Commons office of senior Tory MP Damian Green.

    I don't like the bloke, but putting that aside, if there is evidence of porn on a laptop, apart from some indignation from his constituents, is it illegal ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    They've explicitly noted there was no illegal content. A faction at the Met is pouring mud out of a dumper truck trying to stick the knife into Mr Green regardless, and they're using their porky ex-colleague to front for them. The red-top papers win whichever way it goes.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Even if he had viewed it he has not done anything illegal and for redtops famous for their salacious content to sit there and tut tut is hypocritical tp say the least. More serious I would have thought would have been the likelihood of virus infection on a computer prsumably linked in to servers containing confidential material. Frankly I don't care if he did watch porn.

    It IS starting to look like a personal vendetta. If nothing was illegal it just looks like a smear campaign.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    We'll find out eventually. Either Bob Quick and Neil Lewis, the rogue ex-officers, have backing for their behaviour, or they'll be taken to court. If this breach of confidentiality isn't illegal I'll eat my hat, it's information uncovered in the course of an investigation that was already a scandalous political Metropolitan Police witch-hunt before the computer was even looked at.

    MPs have already said that if this isn't penalized by the Met itself they'll legislate to make a crime of breaching confidentiality after an investigation regardless of how long or retired.

    Was the laptop a work laptop? In that case, I'm pretty sure the empolyer has gorunds to say he was defrauded out of time he paid to the Tory. (And that boss would be the People, wouldn't it?)

    It was a departmental laptop, as far as I'm aware, used in common by the MP and his researchers. The files found were all thumbnails in the invisible Microsoft picture cache, whoever had used it had clearly purged the browser itself.
