IT boob at the Department of Transport

3 January 2014

Workers at the Department for Transport have been REVVING THEIR ENGINES during a boring day of admin with some rather racy internet searches, like ‘Big Boobs in Tight Blouses.’

Yes, while your rail fares rise, something else is rising under the Department of Transport desks. According to Freedom of Information figures, Whitehall employees tried to get at porn 47 times last year, attempting to access Playboy and something called ‘Perfect Asians’.

Playboy was the most popular site, though. Maybe they just wanted to read the articles?

A spokesman, perhaps flustered from looking at big boobs in tight blouses, said: ‘The department has measures in place to prevent accidental or unintentional access to unauthorised sites, such as pornographic sites.'

‘Accidental or unintentional.’

(Yeah, right.)

It might be time for Whitehall to get their IT problems sorted out. After all, it’s not the first time that government employees have decided to entertain themselves on their work laptops. MPs and peers are by far the worst – they tried to access porn sites 300,000 times a year. That's 300,000 visits to treatmelikeanadultbaby.com. No wonder this country is in a mess.

    From the website that routinely puts up questionable images against its articles.

    To do what you are suggesting would require turning government employees literally into robots or machines with no desires. I am sure like many companies, they have filtering software installed, but that doesn't stop the failed attempts to record the searches, they will still be recorded. You are advocating what Cameron is controversially trying to force on the whole country and over which there is much criticism over privacy and freedom. Of course this doesn't mean it's ok to use government computers for such things, just that you can't change it without fundamentally changing human behaviour.

    We only wank while we're on the phone to 'clients'. Particularly those with big boobs. P.S. how is this possibly a consumer-related story?

    47 times? Checking weekly that your blocked sites policy is working would only amount to 52 tests. This is far from news.

    "It might be time for Whitehall to get their IT problems sorted out." What problem would that be? There is nothing to suggest the filters didn't work.

    This website is turning into the Daily Mail, it's complete non-story, get a fucking grip BW.

    ‘The department has measures in place to prevent accidental or unintentional access to unauthorised sites, such as pornographic sites.’ So they don't have measures to intentional access?

    @Mick, ..you hit the nail on the head, All Lucy does is lift stories from the scumbag-mags such as daily record, express & daily mail websites. it wasn't newsworthy then it isn't newsworthy now, ..once again proving Lucy is not a journalist despite selfwritten claims to be a writer guess that's another shilling in the gas meter eh Lucy!?
