Not a great idea, to be fair.

THREE JUDGES IN Britain have been sacked for watching pornography in their offices.

The three were officially removed from their jobs today following an investigation into the allegation that they had all viewed pornographic material via their official IT accounts.

A spokesperson for the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office, which carried out the investigation, said that the material did not include images of children or any other illegal content.

“This was an inexcusable misuse of their judicial IT accounts and wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office holder,” the spokesperson said.

The three were named as Timothy Bowles, a district court judge, Warren Grant, an immigration judge, and Peter Bullock, a deputy district court judge.

A fourth judge was also found to have viewed similar inappropriate material in his office and was due to be sacked but resigned before the conclusion of the disciplinary process.

The spokesperson said that the judges were not linked in any way.
