Government internet network used to access PORN more than twice a day

A GOVERNMENT internet network has been used to try to access porn sites more than two times a day for three years.

There were 2,590 efforts to access X-rated sites — that’s 72 a month or 2.3 times each 24 hours.

The Freedom of Information figures focused on the Government Digital Service, which links different departments.

It can be used by civil servants or guests visiting the GDS building in Whitechapel, East London, for various events such as training.

Pornhub was the subject of the most searches at 1,150.

Staff and guests tried to access Redtube 16 times, Youporn 93, and porn.com on 22 occasions.

Lib Dem deputy leader Daisy Cooper said: “This sort of workplace behaviour would not be tolerated in any other office, and certainly shouldn’t be in the heart of Government.”

Danielle Boxall, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “People don’t end up on those sites by accident. Taxpayer- funded wifi must be strengthened.”

In 2016, Boris Johnson appeared in a clip on Pornhub. Footage entitled “Dumb British blond f**** 15million people at once”, showed the PM giving a post-victory Brexit speech.
