British Parliament tried to access porn sites more than 300,000 times

British Parliment porn visit   More than 300,000 attempts were made in the past year to access adult and pornographic websites on computers in Britain’s Parliament, newly released records show.

The figures cover Internet-enabled devices linked to the Parliamentary Network, which is used by British Parliament members and their staff, and were released by the Palace of Westminster in response to a freedom of information request, News.com.au reports.

Around 850 attempts to click on pornographic pages were blocked each day, and 309,316 attempts were made between May 2012 and July 2013.

One site, “Out of Town Affairs,” racked up 52,000 hits in seven months.

The British House of Commons said the totals were inflated by pop-ups and did not reflect intent to visit such sites.

“We do not consider the data to provide an accurate representation of the number of purposeful requests made by network users due to the variety of ways in which websites can be designed to act, react and interact and due to the potential operation of third-party software,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.

“We are not going to restrict parliamentarians’ ability to carry out research,” she added.  (Fox News)
