UK Home Office Site Links To Porn

Azaril writes "The British home office had an embarrassing incident this morning, when it was discovered that a link to the new legislation on data retention actually linked to a Japanese porn site. Apparently, the home office forgot to renew the domain name, and didn't change the link when it was bought by a Japanese company. This of course comes after the news that the home secretary claimed pornographic films on her expense account."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

I am really quite interested in knowing what domain name could be shared between a Japanese porn site and a British policy site.

I.. I didn't think of it that way, but now I wonder too.

Probably was just a random domain name squatter, though.

I like the bit at the bottom that says "Japanese use only". Classy. Register a .uk domain, and then ask that only Japanese people use it.
