Balls Upsets the Townsfolk

It’s an increasingly tight race in Morley and Outwood and Ed Balls is getting desperate. Punters give the Tories a 47% chance of taking the seat. Last weekend the town turned out for its annual St George’s day celebration. Despite an unofficial ban on politicking, guess who put in an appearance, keen to get some local flavour onto his website…

First he muscled his way into a photo with the Mayoress of Morley, ignoring pleas to keep things non-political and exclaiming, “Do you know who I am? I’m the Secretary of State!” Then he further endeared himself to locals by crashing the reception in the town hall, where he was heard talking through the religious ceremony.

His electioneering was so brazen that independent council members organising the event decided to invite his opponent Antony Calvert to balance things out. To cap things off, as the townsfolk began to head to the parade ground, Balls decided he’d rather not make the short walk himself and barreled his way into the Leeds’ Mayoress’ car. Her elderly husband was forced to walk, but at least Balls got his photo op.

            There are plans afoot to make the denial ogf global warming a criminal offence!

            Even though it’s a proven hoax! off course it is the Euronazi’s way of shutting us up while they destroy our freedoms and tax us billions into the bargin making the direct recipients (bankers and their investors rich). while continuing their plan to de-industrialise the west and turn it into a baron third world hellhole complete with unelected tyrannical goverment.

            A campaign to declare the mass destruction of ecosystems an international crime against peace – alongside genocide and crimes against humanity – is being launched in the UK (deny the lie and you gat black bagged by the EuroNazis.)

            The proposal for the United Nations (tool of the banking elites) to accept “ecocide” as a fifth “crime against peace”, which could be tried at the International Criminal Court (ICC), is the brainchild of British lawyer-turned-campaigner Polly Higgins(a stooge of the bankers?)

            The radical idea would have a profound effect on industries blamed for widespread damage to the environment like fossil fuels, mining, agriculture, chemicals and forestry.(third world here we come).

            Supporters of a new ecocide law also believe it could be used to prosecute “climate deniers”(people who tell the truth like lord monkton) who distort science(that would be their ipcc) and facts to discourage voters and politicians from taking action to tackle global warming and climate change(racketeers and traitors who will make billion in taxes and our goverment will give them the lot).

            My comments might lack a little polish but they are a statement of fact.

            They were a reaction to an internet shitebag who in my opinion was out of order in his choice of analogy to put across his extreme displeasure at the performance and behaviour of two leading Labour politicians.

            As far as I am concerned such comments suggest that a village has lost its idiot or a bar room has lost its bore.

            Either way the person making the comment is beyond the pale of political discourse and needed to be reminded of that fact.

    A word of warning

    High Court clarifies blog libel liability
    Blog owners must leave potentially libellous comments alone until notified that they are breaking the law or risk court punishment, the High Court has ruled.

    Alex Hilton, operator of a Labour Party opinion blog, Labourhome.org, was taken to court by political activist Johanna Kaschke after a site user’s submission accused the activist of roots in terrorism.

    Writer John Gray’s post stated that Ms Kaschke had been arrested in Germany for links with the Baader-Meinhof terrorist group. While not denying that she had been arrested, Ms Kashcke was not adjudged to be a terrorist supporter and sued the site for libel.

    Mr Hilton claimed against the libel charge that, though he ran the site, he did not edit or vet the articles and should qualify for the same protection granted to search engines or ISPs under the E-commerce Directive.

    Regulation 19 exempts information providers, such as ISPs, web hosts and search engines, from liability for the information they store or pass on to users as long as they are not involved in its creation or editing and remove it quickly once notified that it breaks the law.

    But Mr Justice Stadlen ruled that although Mr Hilton had not edited the article, he “exercised some editorial control on parts of the website and in particular on the homepage.”

    During its time on the site, Mr Gray’s article was added to the sites “Recommended” blog list. Upon its entry, the article was given far more detail, including date of upload, pictures and extracts on the homepage.

    These activities, said Mr Justice Stadlen, “went beyond mere storage so that Regulation 19 immunity would not be available in respect of liability for defamatory words appearing on the homepage.”

    Any alteration, even correcting spelling mistakes and punctuation, removes protection under Regualtion 19, the court ruled, meaning Mr Hilton was liable for site content.

    Mr Hilton’s lawyer argued that such drastic measures give operators an “incentive not to monitor their sites with a view to removing offensive material”, but the court rejected the argument and further trails will assess Ms Kaschke’s claims for libel.
