It's astonishing that senior police officers told their minions to
delete this file, but they didn't.
It's disturbing that police can go rogue - even more so since it took
journalists a number of days before they started challenging the probity
of the claims.
We don't know what Green did or didn't do.
Yes we do...
As part of an investigation into alleged leaks from the Home Office, a junior
Home Office official was suspended over a series of items of sensitive
information and the matter was referred to the police.
Christopher Galley, who passed on information to Mr Green, was arrested on 19
November but released on bail without charge. The police said they had
arrested Mr Green on suspicion of "conspiring to commit misconduct in a
public office" and "aiding and abetting, counselling or procuring misconduct
in a public office.
When they questioned him, they are said to have suggested to him that he had
not "simply received leaked" information but had "groomed" a civil servant to
pass it to him. Neither Mr Galley nor Mr Green - who have both denied any
wrongdoing - will now face prosecution, the CPS has announced.
I was saying we don't know whether he looked at pornographic images or
not - which is, of course!, true. But even what you say never went to
court and was not proven. In the eyes of the law he is innocent of both
Pornographic images were found on his work computer. Now I dont know where
you work(ed) and what rules they had; but if pornographic images had been
found on my work computer, I know exactly the instant reaction of management.
I would have been suspended immediately, while the seriousness of the porn
was analysed (and you can make jokes if you like) by management.
I would be facing the sack, because all external downloads were forbidden
without express permission by the head of department. This was not only
because they were not paying their employees to look at womens private
parts; but the chances of importing viruses were vastly higher on porn sites
than on many others.
Even if the images were not deemed illegal, and they kept me on; I would have
been moved to the least enjoyable and least satisfying job in a remote part
of the country, for my sins.
How do I know this? Because in the last 10 years before I retired, two of my
colleagues were found to have porn on their work computers, and this is
exactly what happened to them.
If these rules are acceptable for the minions of this world, then they ought
to be maintained throughout all sensitive work environments - and that
includes the HoC.
but you're an employee...
