Are the police telling the truth for once?

    If he admitted he looked at porn and came out with tulip about being a red-blooded male he would still be in position.
    Yes, and he still denies having looked at it. On two specific occasions, he lied about not being aware that the police had discovered porn on his work computer. That alone is why he’s gone.

      If politicians were sacked for being liars, we'd have an empty House of Commons.

        Pity the policemen who revealed this are not prosecuted. Totally wrong in principle that police should reveal anything about any case unless it relates to the crime being investigated. After that and the recent failures to provide relevant evidence in rape cases I think I trust the bastards even less than politicians.

        And lawyers, dentists etc.

          Just why were the police busting his office in the first place again?

            True, but not all politicians have to obey the Ministerial Code.

              To investigate the leaking of official material from the Home Office to which he was given access, but the raid was widely criticised at the time and later by an inquiry.

                Is that like the Pirate Code? Do they have the Right of Parlez? Or are they more guidelines than an actual code?

                  It's an absolute rule that ministers are always truthful, even about things that don't actually matter a damn to the real world. That's why he's gone.

                  But as has been said already, the reasons behind why he was untruthful are deep and complex and absolutely nothing to do with porn on official PCs. The whole thing stinks and has done far more harm than good. If certain ex-coppers get smacked - as seems likely - and things that are irrelevant to the case in hand are kept properly confidential in future - as seems a little less likely - then that would be a good thing.

                    Both Mr Green and the police force look terrible after this disclosure.
                    First of all, what was the need to go after an opposition MP, look for stuff in his laptop? Was there any suspicion of wrongdoing?
                    And disclosing it to media in the manner it was done, does look like politicization of the force.

                    As to Mr Green's sacking, I think PM took his inappropriate behaviour(to a journalist, quite possibly others) into account, not merely watching porn on work laptop.

                      The police officers involved in leaking information are retired. Many current officers including the head of the Met are pissed off with them and want them prosecuted.
