Nigel Griffiths fails to silence the News of the World

Nigel Griffiths failed to get an injunction against the News of the World earlier today, with the result that the newspaper has another go at him this morning. In fact it does not seem to have much more dirt on him, so he would have done better to, er, keep his head down.

One fact does stand out in the News of the World report: Griffiths transferred 71 explicit photographs from his camera on to his laptop.

If Griffiths can do that, why aren't' MPs allowed to read Lembit Opik's columns?

Because the infrastructure can stop a browser accessing a particular website but it can't actually spot a dirty picture. Also, the camera-to-laptop transfer doesn't go through the parliamentary network at all.
