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.

    We also don't know for sure if this is 1) the truth, 2) specific to the actual parliament's network vs some public wifi, sharing the same gateway, 3) actual porn vs tabloids (as you mention) 4) whether or not the destination IPs were simply a web farm hosting site or in any way specific to a port vendor, 5) the access was merely an advertisement embedded in a web page.

    160 requests per-day from computers that were connected to the parliamentary network.

    That bit quoted from the story suggests it was merely embedded ads, because no actual user would make 160 attempts that were presumably unsuccessful.

    No, you are mistaken. I've always had this sig.
