      Hislop stated earlier on the BBC that if was sued and even if he won the case he would be liable for both parties legal costs. So would/could this not be used as a way to deal with someone like Guido by those he has pissed off? i.e. if they can’t shut down the servers just bankrupt him?

      or well donkey benjamine says:

      laudable words and aims obbs

      yet
      i quite like the anonymous approach
      somehow
      i trust open source to combat open source
      more than governments

      the internet is society more clearly showing itself
      this may be a good thing
      but we need to reform law and other
      we need to make it possible for the good to combat the wicked
      the little man to combat organisations
      i am not sure we can stop violence with any type of force
      man has free will

      Could be worse. It could be Carolyn Quinn.

      Her sole raison d’être is to have politicians fight.

      Exposing the issues or policies? Nah. Just argue.

      Cow.

      I can’t get my head around the fact that it appears its ok that some multi money junta can hijack press regulation at the behest of Bernie Winters(Ed the Red) and the folk don’t give a flying fuck?

    Gordon Brown says:

    Annoyed I ran out of time to introduce the Britain Central News Agency Bill, to ensure people wouldn’t be malinformed about what was in their best interests.

    Still, this is a first step.

      The useless Socialist election-losing Cunt that is Camoron says:

      Don’t worry, I’ll take it forwards.

      And I’ll double your debt while I’m at it.

      And increase immigration.

    Ex ranter and not a mysogynist in any way. says:

    The bastards killed Don’t start me off, I loved that site, I could rant away, and have a good bash at mediocre wankers in politics and the public eye (male and female, who says we didn’t believe in equality?),who’d have thought a Classicist could do so much damage to a mans right to vent his bile in such a non destructive and humourous way?

    What is the betting there will soon be an agreement between the UK & America, to hire their Gun Boats to go after Guido.

    Won’t be long before there is a global agreement between nations to blow the Internet as we know it today.
