Harrow Council’s @champions_help Twitter Feed Follows Animal-Sex Porno

harrow_council_logoHarrow Council, dragged into the limelight earlier this week over it’s inexplicable sudden increase from zero to almost 21,000 Twitter followers on it’s newly launched @champions_help stream (do follow if you want to see pictures of cats, dancing budgies and ice creams) seems to have gone absolutely out of control.

The @champions_help account, ostensibly set up for Harrow’s Community Champion, is actually following an account promoting bestiality – that’s right: sex with animals (not to mention other strange going-ons). The account, based in Indonesia, has 157 followers of which your dear and trusted council is just one.

Now, in a way, we don’t have a problem with porn: if the Council’s Community Champions want to look at porn, in the comfort of their own home – and, importantly – when they’re not being funded by council tax payers, that’s fine. But to be following a porn account, on a council-operated account, is outrageous. How the council thinks it can get away with this, beggars belief. Who’d want to be associated with the Community Champions scheme if this is what happens – what next, are the council going to be promoting crystal meth and crack cocaine to school kids?

So, questions to the council must be: why are your Twitter account operators following purveyors of sick and twisted filth when at work. Why are residents paying for this perversion. Does the act of following an account promoting bestiality mean the council supports such abhorrent behaviour? And who the hell let this happen?

A picture’s worth a thousand words, so here’s a screen shot of the @champions_help ‘following’ page – note that these are people that the Council follows, not people who follow the council (heavily redacted to remove the innocent account on the left,  names and offensive – possibly illegal – images):

Unfortunately, we can’t publish any of the pictures that appear in that Twitter feed, because they’re likely to land us in hot water with the local constabulary, but to describe a couple in vague terms: one involves a horse, another a dog, and both involve a male. There is absolutely no suggestion that the council has posted those pictures, distributed them, published them or features in them in anyway. But their Twitter account is following an account that does exactly that.

 

20150813_twitter_following_1aWe’d be happy to forward further and fuller details to a senior officer at the council upon request if they’d like to investigate this further. We’ve taken the decision not to name the porn account, to avoid being seen as promoting it.

One a brighter note, they’ve now trimmed who they’re following from over 3000 people to less than 1000 – we can only wonder what other porn accounts they might have been following before we stumbled across this one.
