In which case nearly every MP in the house needs to be locked up. Resources are stretched, and office space is at a premium. Also these mp's have teams of researchers, advisers and interns, all of whom need to use the office, and inevitably, the office computer. Green could have been dictating those emails to a colleague over the phone, and that person was the one using the internet inappropriately. It was nine years ago. I suspect the number of people through that office is huge since then.
What I do not understand is why you find it so difficult to grasp the difference between illegal and breaching rules. No one has suggested that anything illegal has happened here. Only Pete and some of his witless cohorts. There has been a breach of the ministerial code, and inappropriate use of a government computer. Just like there is every day in every town hall across the country. And probably in every school across the country. Internet security has never been a priority for the public sector. How else are all those useless office boobies going to book their holidays and share their miserable lives on social media whilst supposedly working ever so hard? Are we going to demonise every single public sector worker with access to a computer now?
I guess you don't work with a network. Everyone could (and should) have an individual log in. No problems with resources. Even if there is one PC in the whole building
