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."

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.
