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.
Surely they are overachievers, Shirley, if they can access pr0n 24,000 times in six months. That's 133.33 accesses per day (for 180 daze), 7 days a week. Now spread 133 accesses per day into a portion of the hours of the day when they would be wanking, how many wanks per day, and for how many members of parliament. And make assumptions about the number of minutes each access lasts (and megabytes streamed).
From Snowden, we know that NSA was spying on Parliament, because, uh . . . NSA knew there would be a high probability of catching terrorists there. Or blackmale victims that NSA could leverage later.
On another note, I'm reminded of that movie There's Something About Mary. Maybe we don't want politicians discussing things like war, surveillance, etc. all stressed out. They may start their day out as wankers, but it may be safer for the rest of us :)
Powerful people probably have (Parliament) interns [pip-psp.org] or (US congress) page boys [wikipedia.org]1 [wikipedia.org]2 [wikipedia.org] who get the callouses on their hands.

Or hard up? Let them look all they want! Keep them happy and as far away as possible from Dr. Strangelove's plan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8L8NopVwdg&t=3m56s [youtube.com]
I doubt your 180 dizzy days.I googled "how many days is the uk parliament in session" and gothttp://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/SN04653 [parliament.uk]which showed approx. 150 days / year.So 75 sessions in half a year, 320 accesses per dayUnless they surf for pr0n on the other 25*5-75 = 55 days. Then it's 436 accesses per day.
