Tell Evan Harris to Blog Off!



A free and open world increasingly depends on a free and open internet. The internet empowers everyone — anyone can blog, create, learn, and share. It is controlled by no one — no single organisation, individual, or government. It connects the world. Today, more than two billion people are online — about a third of the planet. Hacked Off supporter Max Mosley told parliament he wants the government “to cut off the wires” to websites he thinks should be censored. Millionaire celebrities like Hugh Grant want to regulate free speech on the internet. They want laws to force dissident refusenik bloggers to risk paying exemplary fines if they refuse to submit to the regulator. The Hacked Off-drafted press control Royal Charter aims to regulate any blog that carries news-related material aimed at readers in the United Kingdom. Tell Max Mosley we will not be cut off, tell Hugh Grant we will not be regulated, we will not be fined. Keep the world wide web open and free.

      Maria Miller: My hon. Friend tempts me to repeat what I have just said, but perhaps he should read Hansard or the Bill instead.
      New clause 29 describes in great detail who will be caught by the definition of “relevant publisher”. The publisher would have to meet the three tests of whether the publication is publishing news-related material in the course of a business, whether their material is written by a range of authors—this would exclude a one-man band or a single blogger—and whether that material is subject to editorial control. This is specifically designed to protect small-scale bloggers. Lone bloggers clearly do not meet those criteria. I hope that that clarifies that point.

        The blogosphere is the last bastian of freedom.

        Social Media, chatrooms, blogs & forums were an essential component of the Arab Spring. That’s why the Islamicist regimes are shutting them down as fast as they can. That’s why Communist China & the thugocracy in Iran see them as a threat to the dictatorships and actively close them down.

        Guido is just another of Max’s Whipping Boys. Perhaps it’s his wires than need cutting.

        Ever since Tony Blair Millionaire removed Habeas Corpus, this country has been steadily losing it’s freedoms. The EU is fast becoming the Orwellian nightmare of Eurasien. Parliament no longer represents the people. We need to stand up & be counted.

          Isn’t it time the press turned it’s attention to forensically analysing and exposing the people behind Common Purpose, Hacked Off et al?

          Isn’t it time investigations were made into their links, objectives, funding, activities, plans & influence? It’s a perfect opportunity for a very good, independent team like Channel 4’s “Dispatches” to start taking a look at these Left Wing clubs.

          And if those Labour Party mouthpieces, the BBC & Guardian think that they will escape this witch hunt they will be wrong. Their blogs, twitter output & websites will be subject to the same oppression.

        Ah the BBC and ‘Truth’.

        Lets have a look back at 2008. Labour were in power. Ed Miliband was the Climate change tzar – tasked with ‘selling the climate change Act 2008′ to the British public. In order to sell it good and proper it had to include ‘cos Labour were the government of the day many carrots to ‘entrap’ the likes of Tim Yeo, D Cameron, C Huhne et al. They all bought into the lie. Huhne got Ed’s old job when Labour were kicked out. Huhne and his monied friends ‘in government’ in 2010 thought great we now control the global warming ruse and we can direct the real big contracts to our friends.

        Only the whole big fat lie and myth of global warming is now undone.

        Who among [pun intended re mongs] all 650 mp’s in the house is going to be the first to ‘put their hands up’ and admit that it was al.l a gore.y – big ruse and a myth – none of them are – because not one of them is ‘fit for any effing purpose’.

        What a circus of liars they all are; what a shower of 5hits, liars, frauds and generally low-life chancers they are and HAVE BECOME.

        None of them dare admit that never before in modern history have so many of them been sold so many lies by the zioloons. Pathetic, pathetic, pathtic.

        What happens when a moneybags ‘entertainer’ loses to a major government supporting foreign (Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, US) newspaper and seeks to recover his exhorbitant costs? The newspaper would go to the government, Australian or whatever, and complain loudly. What would that government do? I suspect it would tell the UK to stuff its law where the sun never shines. All sorts of things would follow on from that.

        A very good point. We shouldn’t be turning fire on the McCanns or Dowlers. Or Charlotte Church. These people did absolubtley nothing wrong. The newspapers were the guilty party. They were ‘hacking’ the phones. The newspapers should have to take the blame.

        Even Hugh Grant isn’t to blame.
        The papers were ILLEGALLY listening in to his phone calls. Doesn’t matter what he was up to. They were breaking the existing law and should face penalty.

        But trying to regulate the press was a very stupid idea. We already have laws. Those laws have been broken. People have gone to prison. More will go.
        The Murdoch papers have paid out many millions in damages.

        A simple tightening of the law,with a bit of rejigging of contractual employment law, so that freelance/intern is the same as in full time employ, and much of the issue is solved.

          The McCanns are not out of the woods yet – many of the lurid headlines about them came out before the case files were made public (and there are some held back out of reach of the McCanns and their lawyers/PR man). As the former Express editor at Leveson stated (while being brow beaten by Leveson and Jay) much of what had been written is in the police files (although there was some licence engaged in the way it was portrayed). If the police files had come out before the Express paid out a vast amount to the McCanns then Mr Desmond would have saved himself a fortune. The McCanns have never contested libel in a court of law – it will be interesting how they may fare with Dr Amaral if and when the libel trial begins in Portugal.

            Would make sense as the wholesale price of grain is going up quite a bit due to shortages caused by poor harvest in north america past two years.

        Inscrutable, these wily Orientals. Even to themselves, it sounds like, based on what you’re saying.

        If I could be arsed to do it, I’d look up a story from some years back about how Chinese of a certain age in some city like Beijing or wherever would, of a hot summer night, come out into the alleyways of their rabbit-warren streets, turn on a tape deck/CD player/some audio and play music from roughly the time before the Cultural Revolution, i.e., when they were students almost 40 years before, and dance. No protest, no anger, no nothing, just people doing the Twist or cha-cha or something from the early 60’s. They’d do it for a few hours and then retire to their houses. They attracted notice from the local authorities when it started becoming hundreds instead of relative handfuls. Cutting a long one short, the Commies never did arrest anybody, as they never quite figured out whether the dancing was to make some sort of point that people could get together on their own and enjoy themselves without the state’s help, or just a bunch of middle-aged farts who basically didn’t give a shit for politics and were just enjoying themselves, full-stop. The Commies felt, y’know, after Tiananmen, we probably shouldn’t bust up groups of people who don’t seem to be doing anything dangerous if there’s any way this could get out on the Net, was the reporter’s take on what happened, knowing the Chinese as he did. He seemed to think there were all sorts of ways the Bamboo Curtain of the Net could be breached if done subtly enough, so subtly that perhaps the West wouldn’t understand any more than the Chinese censors could whether any point was trying to be made– and he said, THAT’s the point; the Chinese have shown their reluctance to be seen as too ham-handed. Hence, a whole Internet culture of indirectness, where he who hath ears let him hear, and the censors say, better not to go “Streisand.”

        And if I were as conspiracy-theory as some on this blog are, I’d ask whether this story might have all been a head-game being played on the reporter by the Chinese authorities. I opt for the “Heinlein” explanation here. I’m crazy, but I’m not THAT paranoid.

    plausible deniability on arlington road works two ways you cunting genocidal shitters says:

    how long will this pantomime continue. we know without a shadow of a doubt that the entire banking system has been subverted into complete clusterfuckery by the concept of “fractional reserve”. money out of thin air. a means to control people and nations. this is not about communist or capitalism, it is about the fundamental right of every one on this planet to have shelter and food and medical care and education and the ability and motivation to submit a fair and equitable amount of their time on a regular basis to maintaining those fundamentals.

    i had always hoped that we would get to a peaceful point where people would wake up as i and others have done over the last decade or so and collectively we would make use of the internet to become a virtual global community where we govern ourselves rather than have others do it for us. regardless of whether politicians go into that trade with altruistic or nefarious or both intentions, they have fucked up beyond all recognition. to peacefully meld adapt change whatever our ways it needs peace and patience and dialogue and the acceptance that shelter/food/medicine/education/vocations for all would take many many years to achieve.

    quite what am i saying? well i do not have all the answers. but i know for fucking sure that there is a elite on this planet who absolutely without a shadow of a doubt give a flying fuck about anyone accept their familiar clique.

    they are the hive mind of satan. they have subverted people into believing that god and gods be figments of long passed myths. they’ve hidden the truth and are converting you en masse to their ways. here is how they are doing it.

    fluoride in toothpaste and water supplies calcifies your pineal gland- which is basically a receiver. the change in density changes the frequency of the receiver. beams of tetra aka tetragrammaton are in control. if you read that and think it is a pile of shite, well that is because quite simply the tetra is overriding your ability and right to free will.

    these are very dark very serious times. this battle has been played out infinite times before. bundles and bundles of system of solar out there.

    the number of the beast is numbers itself. possessions possessing whom exactly? a price on all things. of nature itself being turned into a commodity.

    It is the politicians – all of them if most notably those in the governing Labour party who are the guilty ones – including many who now opportunistically claim to represent the victims.

    Putting MPs in charge of this debate was like asking Kim Jong-un to watch out for the interests of South Korea. Of course politicians want to control the press – they’re still smarting from their expenses exposure.

    Look at the small print and any website containing ‘news-related material’ also falls under the remit – and that includes anyone running a blog. Why do we need this? Laws already exist to protect the rights of anyone libelled online as well as in newspapers.

    This is not about protecting the merry band of precious ‘celebs’, adulterous shaggers and coke-sniffers. It starts with Hugh Grant’s blow-job and ends with the gagging of anyone critical of the EU. We’ve already seen civil servants attempt to gag anti-wind-farm protesters. Still never mind. When the careers of Clegg and Miliband end in failure, they are certain to walk into well-paid EU jobs .

      Casual Observer says:

      Ok, that appeared to be easy.

      Method for setting up tor for chrome / win, as I could not find straight answer via google:

      i) Download Privoxy from here: h**p://

      ii) Install, use defaults.
      — You need this, or similar software to translate http / https etc. to and from socks5.

      iii) Download configuration for Privoxy here: h**p://

      iv) Make backups of config.txt / default.action in your privoxy installation area.

      Rename: config.txt –> config.txt.orig
      Rename: default.action –> default.action.orig

      v) Unzip the downloaded config file: Privoxy Tor

      vi) Edit the unzipped files (they are for earlier version of privoxy…):

      config.txt :
      Change: actionsfile default to: actionsfile default.action
      Change: actionsfile standard to: actionsfile standard.action


      Replace line:
      +hide-forwarded-for-headers \
      +change-x-forwarded-for{block} \

      Replace line:
      +hide-forwarded-for-headers \
      +change-x-forwarded-for{block} \

      viii) Copy the files config.txt, default.action, standard.action from ‘Privoxy Tor Settings’ unzip area to Privoxy install area, where files were backed up in (iv)

      ix) Restart Privoxy. It should start up fine. Double check edits if get parsing errors which halt the program. Ignore the warnings about unsupported functions, unless you want to clean up your config files.

      x) Download tor:

      xi) Install will unzip to a location. Note: If not using the shipped tor browser, delete the ‘Firefox Portable’ folder and ‘Start Tor Browser.exe’ app

      xii) Launch ‘vidalia’ located in the app folder. It may be necessary to reconfigure so vidalia can find tor.exe, located also in the app folder.

      Checkpoint: You should now have:

      a) Privoxy running
      b) vidalia running
      c) Green onion in task bar indicated connected to tor.

      xiii) In Chrome, configure to use proxy settings:

      http / secure / ftp: : 8118
      socks: : 9050

      xiv) Navigate to: h**ps://

      You should get a green message back indicated using tor, with an unfamiliar external IP.

      To manage proxy settings in Chrome, the following addin may be useful: Proxy Switchy. Details here: h**p://

      Your route by the way is as follows:

      Chrome (http / https / ftp: 8118) > Privoxy > (socks : 9150) vidalia tor

      NB: Read the info on tor, particularly caveats with flash and it is best to use https especially if throwing passwords around for online web / bank etc.

      That is where the proxy switcher addin can come in handy for switching out.

      Use of incognito window in Chrome may also be good idea as this will leave less evidence on your client of what you’ve been up to, but if you set up privoxy to cache, remember to clear that out.

        Robin (Sojourner) Wood T-Shirt Template

        Years ago there was a discussion in The Plug and Moat forums that inspired me to make a true T-Shirt template, so everyone who wanted to could make a t-shirt quickly and easily. It was originally intended to let people who just wanted a single t-shirt, for an event, or to promote their favorite band, position, or soft drink, to make one.

        It wasn’t for people who wanted to really learn to make clothing from hemp, although I’m delighted that it’s helped with that, too.

        But there will be no templates for other clothing types, because if you want to learn to make clothing, you need to make your own templates as well.

        But, for all those who just want a shirt or two, and for all those who want to see how I put a shirt together, here you go. You can download the T-shirt template here. It should open in anything that can open Photoshop layered documents. (If you can’t get it to open in yours, though, don’t ask me how to do that. I don’t use the others, and have no clue how to open files in them.)

        There’s a read-me file in the package, but if you want more instruction about how to use it, read on!

        NOTE: In order to use this tutorial you MUST download the “Robin (Sojourner) Wood T-shirt” file. I’ll be referring to layers that are in that file, and if you don’t have it, you won’t be able to follow along.

        Note that the “templates” provided by the über-jerk, Chip Midnight, and myself aren’t actually templates at all. They are UV Maps. This shirt is actually a template. It’s all finished, including the Alpha Channel, so all you need to do is slap a picture on the front, change the color, and pray to your god. These instructions will tell you how to do that, and nothing more. It was not designed to teach how to make a t-shirt from scratch, although you are certainly welcome to reverse engineer it and figure that out.

        These instructions are written for Adobe Photoshop, with screen shots from PS CS2. If you use something else, you will have to translate the instructions yourself. Please don’t write and ask me to do that. I can’t. The only raster programs I know how to use are Photoshop and Painter.

        The Layer Palette

        When you open the file, you’ll see a number of layers. If that confuses you, it’s okay. None of us were born knowing about layers! Just click here to find out what Layers are. If you are comfortable with layers, then we can start to place your image.

        For purposes of this tutorial, I’m going to assume that you have your image already prepared. I’m going to use a picture of my cat, taken with a cell phone. (So you know what kind of quality we’re talking about, here.)

        Select your image, and copy it

        Open the image you want to use, Photoshop will open it in another window. (You can have lots of windows open at the same time.) Tap Command/ctrl A (Hold down Command and tap A if you are using a Macintosh, or hold down ctrl and tap A if you are on a PC.) That selects the entire image. You can tell it’s selected because of what are called “marching ants” around the picture. (No joke; that’s the actual technical name for them!)

        Tap Command/ctrl C to copy the image.

        Select the Design Example layer

        Click on the window with the T-shirt in it, to make it the active one, and then click the Design Example layer to select it. New layers always are added above the currently selected layer, so doing this determines where our new image will be in the stack.

        Paste your image onto the shirt

        Tap Command/ctrl V to paste.

        Your picture will appear in the middle of the image, on its own layer. Because it’s in the middle, it will be under the Cover layer, and partially obscured, but that’s okay. We’ll reposition it in a moment.

        Notice that the new layer, Layer 1, is already selected. (It’s highlighted.) This is good, because we need to work with it for the next few steps. Make sure that it stays selected.

        Change the Image Opacity

        We’re going to use the Design Example to get the placement right, but it would be easier if we could see through the picture we just placed there..

        Fortunately, we can. At the top of the Layer palette, you’ll see a line that says Opacity, next to a text box. If you’re using PS CS2, just place your cursor on the word, and drag to the left to decrease the opacity interactively. If you’re using an older version of Photoshop, or if you prefer, you can type a new opacity into that field. I recommend between 60% and 70%. If you’re typing, tap the Enter key when you’re done. (That frees the keyboard, so you can use keyboard shortcuts.)

        Move yourself into position #7

        With the new layer (Layer 1) still selected, tap the V key, to get the Move tool (or select it from the toolbar,) click anywhere on the image, and drag it into position in the middle of the shirt, over the harp.

        Resize the image, if necessary

        Okay, the placement looks good, but it’s too big. We need to change that. (Yours might fit, and if it does, you can skip this step.)

        Tap the T key, to move into Free Transform mode. (Or choose Edit > Free Transform from the menus.) Now, hold down the Shift key, to constrain resizing to proportional only, and the Option/alt key, to resize from the middle. Click one of the corner handles, and drag inwards, towards the center of the picture, to shrink it.

        (Drag outwards, of course, if it’s too small, and you want to enlarge it.)

        When you are happy with the size, just double-click inside the bounding rectangle to accept it. (Or tap the Enter key twice.)

        Adjust the placement with the Move tool, if necessary (V, remember.)

        Now, if you are happy with it this way, you can just change the Opacity back to 100% (the quick way is to tap 0 (zero) on your keyboard or numeric key pad,) click the Eye icon next to the Design Example layer, (to hide it,) and skip to the next page.

        But I’m going to do a little more with it, just to show you what is possible.

        First, I’m going to make the picture round, not square.

        Select the Elliptical Marquee tool

        Click and hold on the Marquee tool, in the top left corner of the Toolbar, until the pop-out menu flies out. Then choose Elliptical Marquee Tool from the menu. (Or tap M to choose the Marquee tool, and Shift-M to choose the next tool in that fly out menu. When you see the Elliptical Marquee in the toolbox, you’ve got the right one.)

        Draw a marquee over your design

        Click where you want the center of the circle to be, hold down the Shift key, to constrain the marquee to a circle (otherwise, it makes all kinds of ovals,) and the Option/alt key, to make a marquee from the middle (notice a pattern here?) and drag the marquee out, until it’s roughly the same size as the circle around the harp.

        If it’s not centered, it’s no problem. Switch fingers on the Shift key, reach over with your index finger, and hold down the Spacebar too, and you can slide the marquee anywhere you want it while you are still sizing it. (Yeah, it’s a little tricky to do, but well worth the effort of learning. If you drop a key it’s no problem, as long as the mouse button is still held down. Just depress the keys again, and the marquee will spring back into shape.)

        When you have it the way you want it, let go of the mouse button. That will accept the circle. (If you still need to tweak it, you can move it by just dragging with the Marquee tool, or change it in other ways by choosing Select > Transform Selection from the menus.)

        Hope that helps.

            Will keep my eye out for the 20 paras, missed here but may have seen else where. If those were yours, good work.

            I don’t have problem pasting up. I keep a copy of most of the stuff which goes up here for reference, and posting elsewhere. Instructions above are messy as procedure used messy, but it got it working ;-)

            Notice a lot of stuff get m0dded out, but sharing a little doesn’t help and someone else may get the inspiration to post on their own blog.

            What would be interesting is to consider the case of a split blog which is hosted across multiple jurisdictions – kind of like tor in reverse. That could be a way around the some of the issues as it would make it difficult to prove that a blog existed at all.

            Would be like trapping a cloud ;-)

        Casual Observer: you don’t need to do all this. You can install the Tor Browser Bundle, which gives you everything you need in one go, including its private version of Firefox Portable. Get it from

        The bundle unpacks a self-contained folder, so that you can run Tor from a USB dongle if you want to. Or you can put the folder anywhere on your computer and make a shortcut to its main file, Start Tor Browser.exe . That’s all you need to do: no settings to make, it works at once.

      It is believed to be not credible as Guam / Ok!nawa are out of DPRKs range.

      Parliament could swill Old England down the drain?

    What happens when a moneybags ‘entertainer’ loses to a major government supporting foreign (Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, US) newspaper and seeks to recover his exhorbitant costs? The newspaper would go to the government, Australian or whatever, and complain loudly. What would that government do? I suspect it would tell the UK to stuff its law where the sun never shines. All sorts of things would follow on from that.

    The press needs bringing down a peg or two indeed some bloggers too.

    Printing lies and innuendo ruins peoples lives, its not for the press to make a judgments on people or pry into their lives.

    The press cannot expect to cherry pick its stories to suit its argument and ignore relevant facts that do not.

    The press have got their comeuppance for being untrustworthy (just like politicions) they only have themselves to blame.

    Freedom of speech is a powerful weapon and its abuse has consequences.

      Cut-me-own-throat Dibbler says:

      There are laws to deal with press abuse. But they were enforced in the same lax way as the drug laws. No wonder the press got out of hand.

          Put on Pensioner says:

          The exposure of unlawful activities cannot be revealed by unlawful activities.

          The end does not justify the means!


          • Bless their pointy litte heads says:

            What is and what isn’t a lawful activity is now defined by the state, but that does not make it Just.


          • Cut-me-own-throat Dibbler says:

            Agreed. That is the whole point in having laws in the first place. But if you have laws and then ignore them or fail to enforce them then nobody should be surprised at the level of abuse that will happen. So if existing laws are not enforced what is the point of new ones?


          • Taxfodder says:

            Having laws mean they “can” be enforced, choosing not enforcing them is an entirely different matter, Indeed you cannot enforce a law that does not exist!


          • Put on Pensioner says:

            Laws exist to assist the sensible and deter the stupid, however if the stupid won’t comply then the law needs to be reinforced until the stupid become sensible.

          Put on Pensioner says:

          Kev, yes if it was proven the Telegraph stole the tapes, but it was well known they did not, they simply choose to report the theft and the contents stored thereon.

          A truly public spirited action one may say ;O)

      “…………his fucking government have abused disabled people and the poor for years”

      I think you’ve got the wrong government…you surely mean the last Labour Government…who did very little for either group during their term in office and even less for their working class core vote other than open the doors to mass immigration ensuring that there was no work for them….that’s why the benefits bill saored under Labour

      CHRIST ON A BIKE! says:

      if the BBC are having a go at Balls, it is because there are many people in the Labour Party who knows he’s a big liability. They don’t want 2 arseholes at the top. They hope that if Balls is replaced, it will be by some telegenic fraud the BBC can promote as the next messiah.

    I am still somewhat mystified by the need for new regulation. As current prosecutions show, there are already laws in place which come into play when the law is deemed to be broken by journalistic behaviour. Is that not enough?

      Dave fell asleep again, been said many times that we have laws of libel and slander that can be pursued through both criminal and civil courts, the problem was that plod were colluding in the circus, an issue that Leveson totally ignored.

    Headline on weblink on the ir front page ‘how the budget will hit families’ – presumably giving them taxbreaks and child care allowances

    If you have to use swearing and obscenities to put forward your opinion you have already lost the argument. The Press is owned by global capitalists whose collective intention is to rule the world. Our politicians are the hirelings of these people. That is why they are carrying out a policy of mass migration. They won’t stop until we are in the minority in our own country!! Until they abolish elections, which I am sure they are thinking about, you can always vote them out!! Just vote UKIP. You don’t have to be brave to do that.
