Guardian’s Internet Disconnected

red edEd Miliband is due at Guardian HQ shortly to give the Hugo Young Lecture, and what happens?

The internet goes down…

From: Sheila Fitzsimons

Dear all, In order to try and resolve the internet connectivity issue in Kings Place we will make a network change at about 3pm. It would help if those of you who don’t need to use the internet could limit your use for the rest of the day. Thanks for your patience today – everyone is trying as hard as possible to resolve the problems. Sheila

Have they tried switching it on and off?

    If they switch it on and off, it will never work.

    I suggest off and on.

    Ed Miliband has already broken the energy sector with his bungling scare stories, he’ll switch the entire country off with his left-wing policies.

    Surely you mean switching it off and on – assuming it was on in the first place?

    FFS the tossers in the House of Corruption are congratulating civil service, plod and fire brigade for the jobs they get paid for, hadn’t realised they saved all those houses and the Levels from flooding, it’s really should be a story for a comedy playhouse, sort the problems out you wankers and stop yapping.

        The BBC up to its neck..... says:

        I watched Ben Brown on BBC Breakfast broadcasting from Datchet at 8am standing(?) in water just over his feet and as the day progressed the water got higher and higher although he or perhaps his editor decided that he should link all the BBC floods coverage from there standing in rising flood water(a bit like them insisting Clive Myrie did the same yesterday in the rain at flooded Dawlish rail station)It would would make great telly if we could go live and watch as he was totally submerged but at 4pm Ben obviously decided he’s had enough and to bail out with the water lapping over the top of his wellington boots and decamped to outside slightly less flooded ground outside the flooded Datchet Train Station with drier feet

        The BBC will be with you until the end or at least until the BBC helicopterpicks them up as the floods rise

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
