Victory: Guido’s Blog Will Remain Unregulated
Government Tells Evan Harris to “Blog Off”



Dr Evan Harris told all who would listen that he wanted this blog to be regulated, Max Mosley wanted the government to “cut the wires” of the internet for bloggers who didn’t submit to judicial censorship and the nutty Professor Brian Cathcart who mutters about freedom of the press while trying to stamp it out didn’t really engage. Well they have completely and utterly failed in their ambitions.

The government has announced that for-profit blogs which make less than £2 million will be exempt from the new system of press regulation and there would also be an exemption for blogs with fewer than 10 employees under the amendments to the Crime and Courts Bill. Which leaves plenty of room for Guido to expand his operations…

We would not in any event have gone along with a regime that attempted to put an unbearable and unjustified regulatory burden on us. This is not to say that Guido supports the legislation, it seems pretty unfair on small newspapers who will still be regulated and it means there is not a level playing field. There will, as Guido told Leveson, be a thriving unregulated free press and a withering regulated unfree press with one hand tied behind its back. You only have to consider the Rolf Harris story revealed on this blog three months ago and only today seen on the front pages of the newspapers…

    The point shouldn’t be about protecting small blogs, we shouldn’t have to rely on Guido and underground micro news to get our information. We need a full free press, including large newspapers and TV if we’re going to be freely able to hold government to account

    Whilst welcome news to this blog, the idea that any larger sized organisation which operates outside of jurisdiction should be swept into its controls still smacks of censorship.

    How the hell can we hold the high ground against the Chinese when we effectively behave in a similar manner to them?

    The moment another Labour government gets its hands on the reigns, they will sweep in the smaller sites. I know this from having experienced it in my own field.

    IMO, technology will ensure that an alternative to the internet will develop as this sort of thing starts to strangle what we know as the net. It may come from satellite but, just as most of us were unaware how the internet itself would take off, it might instead be via some other means not even available now.

    What the control freaks don’t realise is that a censored press would publish even more complete guff than it does now. Since serious, important reporting would be restricted to the point of impotence, they would fall back on celebrity gossip, twaddle and filler.

    The point about the Chinese government is that it is competent and patriotic. Being Communist and corrupt may be unhelpful, but they are insignificant by comparison.

  44. 44
    Casual Observer says:

    It’s not the net etc. which has got them rattled.

    It is the fact that they have lost control, control which will not be reclaimed easily which has.

    If the press is controlled by government, it is quite simple to make the case that it is to be ignored. That is more dangerous for those in power than the currently deteriorating status quo.

    To your point on international high ground, most of what is published by other less ‘free’ countries is rightly regarded as trash. UK MSM is now is in that category officially.

    For those in the pressure groups who encouraged this, I look forward to not seeing them get state sanctioned press coverage, and as happened in other countries who have gone down this path, when the state murders these useful idiots and their families I look forward to not reading about it.

    But at least I can still blog about it as I see fit, and poke fun on Twitter.

    Collated evidence is thin insofar as if this reached a court of law, they would use this as an opportunity to blow up the judge and jury. Sometimes a real-action contact which involves apprehension and enforcement of public defence and self-defence means shooting people (if hell-bent attackers). Or did C4 not reach ‘Defences’ in their childlike legal knowledge, focussing on how to/how not to lock people up.

    Of course, one could “go Galt,” in a sense, and deliberately set the whole thing up so that one blog one is involved with, let’s call it, say, “Order-order,” makes less than 2 mill and another, let’s call it “Media Guido,” also makes less than 2 mill. Does the fact that the editor/publisher/reporter/analyst/chief-cook-and-bottle-washer of both blogs are exactly the same person play into this at all? See, what I’m afraid of, setting aside the staffing regulations (<10) and all the other Mickey Mouse nonsense, is that it will be the blogger, and not the blogs, that will be the object of any regulation; in other words, you can get away with doing it on one blog, Mr S — ONE. Of course this would require that Guido set up a different URL and do some other things to demonstrate that they are two discrete (though not "discreet"!) entities. Can Himself can be arsed to do all the heavy lifting (to use a figure of speech), if it comes to that?

All they in opposition sought was the backing of that bastard murdoch and his stringpullers.

    Thatcherated says:

    Over two million children in Britain are living in poverty, while thousands of people are relying on donated food to feed their families.

    Miners who were involved in the great strikes were denied basic state benefits by Thatcher.

    She even prevented miners receiving assistance towards funerals.

    This was the callousness of her Tory policies against the working class.

    The outrageous expenditure on her funeral is no more than rubbing salt into the wounds of her policies that devastated Britain.

    However, no matter how many soldiers Cameron puts onto to the streets or gun salutes they fire.

    No matter how many police they use to protect the reactionaries attending this state-funded weep-in.

    No matter how much the BBC tries to sycophantically portray Thatcher in benevolent terms, the people will never forget Thatcher’s legacy of hate and destruction.

    Ed Miliband must ignore the mad ravings of Tony Blair and David Blunkett and set the Labour Party on course to representing the working class once more and not the City of London.

    That would be the best way to fumigate the legacy of Thatcherism from Britain.

    They did not odds for the net.

    @CO The very reason we have blogs, which have been pivotal in kicking in the doors of the barn which is potentially controllable media, is due to the rise of the net which is now available in most people’s homes. So it is difficult for me to agree with your first sentence. One follows the other.

    The net, with all its aspects, is really like one big pub conversation but capable of carrying much more sophisticated (as well as banal) content and allowing people to have multiple simultaneous conversational interchanges, much as we are exchanging thoughts now. My point is that, at some point, we shall be effectively closed down over these in the same way as China is now.

    It will be done on some other pretext, anti-terrorism is an excellent example – nobody wants terrorism do they? So therefore we act against terrorist Icelandic Banks… (as an aside, one may wonder if it was drawn up with sufficent flexibility of interpretion to enable these unforseen events to be included – but that would invest the left with much more intelligence than I think it has.

    We also see mission creep in Operation Yewtree where Jim Davidson is arrested for something which may, or may not, have happened with girls in their mid 20s. Yet the inevitable Savile/Yewtree association means that a number of people will be saying that it must have been underaged girls involved, just as they are now with Rolf Harris. I do not know the truth of his case either (anyone who has broken the law must face trial of course) but I do understand the concept of taint and I know that the UK authorities are deliberately and concertedly contributing to it on an industrial scale, here and in many other disparate fields. Why, we might ask?

    The answer, of course, is the control you refer to. It is now a dirty war they are fighting because everyone has forgotten what the right way was. Go out and ask a dozen people in the street what Habeas corpus means or how its effect has changed in the last decade. In London, one person might know. In Bradford or Preston, probably none will.

    Think of the way Margaret Thatcher broke the post-war consensus of politics. Now use the same approach regarding the internet. A genie has been let out of the bottle and it will never be returned.

    @Zeitgeist: Libel does not mean untrue. Who wants to defame the allegedly rich in any case ? Ignore them ideologically and economically and their power wanes.

    @SC: Governments can only control fear. Ideological will always be dirty when morality has been sacrificed, as essentially happened under Blair.

    The overall net is much bigger than the pub conversation, but some elements of it can be modeled as you suggest. The ongoing Bitcoin saga is showing the real direction / power which the technology is capable of releasing. The Arab Spring revolutions (and to a degree the 2011 London riots) another.

    All government can do is control the node points, for censorship purposes very specifically those at the border. However, this is very difficult. The ‘security surface’ is too vast and fundamentally porous to manage using old style strategies.

    I do not think the terrorism card would be pulled out to regulate net. What will be is economics, in particular taxation of traffic on the long distance portions. This would prove more effective a deterrent and control mechanism than ‘cutting the wires’. Leave them there, just make them expensive, and increase control on the cheaper routes.

    Agree with Yewtree scope: But Yewtree is a blood letting for Savile, and cover up of a grand scale. Fairbanks / Fernbridge is much more interesting and doesn’t seem to be resulting in many arrests at present.

    The real issues behind those investigations should be convincing many irrespective of the presence of the net that the previous status quo has to change. Those in power who are implicated will one way or another be thrown under the bus.

    What should be unsettling though is the question of who benefits most from this transition, and what are things transitioning to ? So many lucid questions not being asked, and being lost in the background noise of the pub conversation.

    There is one use of the internet right there though for government. Threatening its freedom certainly does help distract people from real issues, and despite the fine communication mechanism it is, so much information which should be transmitted isn’t.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood "We're Just Haggling Pr!ce, Now!" Service says:

    It was once observed by a reporter, in a story about a police officer working the streets in an area known for prostitution, that you’re never going to get rid of whores or their Johns– it ain’t gonna happen, sez the reporter to the copper, so why go out on the street patrolling as you do, when all that that will accomplish is that they’ll just go around the corner, out of your sight, till later on, another constable comes along and moves them away from that block back to yours, where you will have to return, and so on; the constable, of an old avuncular PC Dixon type, said to the reporter, “Everything you’ve just said is true, Miss– they WILL just scurry like the rats down by the river when I or another rozzer come along; but it IS bloody hard to fuck and run at the same time, innit?”, meaning, we don’t have to make life EASY for them, do we?

    As long as you bring it up…

    The suspect in Boston who was killed, and his brother arrested, were Chechens, but apparently they were not particularly involved in any specifically nationalistic anti-Russian activity, but were more garden-variety Is*lamic jihad types, if there can be said to be such a thing. It is being speculated that the FBI knew about one of them, from having been tipped off by the KGB, based on this creature’s travels to a republic nearby to Chechnya, that he was trouble, but that the FBI blew off the KGB because they thought it was the Russians looking to use the US as a cat’s-paw in settling their grievance with the likes of this creature. He had been admitted to the US as an asylee, which made it all the more likely the KGB’s warning would go unheeded. But what is more interesting is the MO for the bombing, if you will follow me: If you are some sort of international terror organisation, and you can use someone who seems to have a prima-facie reason for their act independent of your involvement, would you use him? It’s being thought that, as these men were “white,” i.e., not “sand-monkey-looking,” and, as they live in Boston, what better target than a large public event (as in the Atlanta Olympics Centennial Park bombing by a US home-grown non-muzlim bomber)– on a day that is close enough in time of year to the OKC bombing/Waco conflagration(stay tuned on that fertiliser factory fire)/Columbine HS shootings anniversaries, and spot-on as the day commemorating the opening shots of the American War of Independence (just down the road from where those took place)– by these two men, who, assuming they won’t be captured on scene, may be thought to be American “militia” types at first, and divert the course of the investigation down a blind alley. Even if caught, on scene or later, they will seem to have a plausible “alibi” motive.

    Given all this, do you take the chance these men may make a soup sandwich of the whole follow-up to the operation, by not having a real exit strategy, and convince them they are doing it for God, and what happens is in His hands alone, unless they decide to pull the pin on themselves? Where is the downside, if you are an international terror organisation? Even if they would be caught alive and waterboarded etc., they still don’t know much beyond maybe who their handler was– do you go for it?

    Well, 5th, it looks as if, rather than being moderated, you have been shoved into the rag-tag of out-of-order comments at the end (not what you would expect in a blog called order-order.com). But in reply to your comment numbered 204, I respect your passion, but what the fuck do you mean about screaming opacity? Did you mean transparency, the opposite of opacity? I can’t think of any other word you could have got it mixed up with.

    He’s been caught, sleeping in a boat – a nineteen year old, and he was blubbering, and had a sot wound since earlier, hiding in a boat in Boston rivers. Thought Boston should have thought to look there first, after dumping our tea overboard, and paying for the I R A, and things.

    All electronic communications are monitored and information passed to a foreign country, they just have targets to go for to glean information, so if they decide that they want to monitor this blog every contributor and the comments will be recorded, they would be able to trace where you live or where you write from. Another thought that has crossed my mind is if this initially goes from Geedo’s computer to an NI computer they will have got your number as well.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
