Re: What confidentiality?
Look I don't like most politicians but lets just break down your comments...
'Is it breaching a burglar's data protection rights to publish his appearance in court, even if he's found not guilty?' - Appearance is not part of data protection.
'Green is a public servant and was (in my view) abusing the time and resources that I pay for in order to ogle naked woman.' - Was he doing it on his own time, and those were also thumbnails which can be accumulated from spam etc
'He can damn' well do that on his own time, not on the time that he should be spending working on making my society better.' - As above was it in his own time. Making society better? Well ideally but once you've been around the block a bit then your realize that your statement is incredibility naive.
' I know from personal experience at work that a person caught visiting iffy websites on his work computer was out of the building, pass revoked, the very same day.' - That's a place you worked out and is not relevant to a police action.
'The police are absolutely right to make this public as a service to the electorate.' - Leaking confidential information to the press to get someone kicked, if you leaked confidential information would you be walked out?
Sounds like you did a knee jerk reaction without thinking or reading up on the article and back story, so I guess that makes you upper management?
