Porn streaming sites were accessed from UK parliament 24,000 times in six months, figures have shown.

I'm torn between making a "bunch of wankers" joke and castigating them for being underachievers.

    This is the same country wherein MI5 covered up endemic Parliamentary sexual misconduct with orphaned minors in order to retain political leverage for itself. 30 years later, only after all the members of parliament had died so no one could be tried or held responsible, did they acknowledge what had happened.

    Google it. There was a police officer and a social worker who were either reassigned or lost their jobs over it and are the only reason it kept being brought up and finally acknowledged, despite what was probably much longer than 30 years worth of misconduct (1980s to the 2010s, confirmed.)

    Really makes you wonder why so many countries are further centralizing their authority, when we already know some of the biggest paedophiles are in Parliament or your regional equivalent politically powerful body.
