Blogpost Criticising Cameron Removed From the Internet

There is growing concern this morning over Google removing articles from their search results in order to comply with a European court ruling giving individuals with embarrassing pasts a so-called “right to be forgotten”. Talking of awkward things disappearing from the internet, the House of Commons Library last night decided to remove a blogpost on its website laying into Cameron for being generous with his figures at PMQs this week. Commenting on the PM’s boast about improving hospital waiting times, the Library originally judged that the data “did not support” Dave’s claim, accusing him of a “simplistic reading” of the facts. Labour were naturally very pleased that parliament’s impartial research service had gone after the PM so strongly.

Now the blog has been deleted by the Library:

Though they aren’t taking back the criticism made in the original post…

      Cams is beginning to panic he should be much further ahead in the pols that he is, started with the British peoples hopes and good wishes pinned to him, but that is waring a bit thin now. IF Cams gets a good working majority after May next year, the cuts will come thick and fast, we have seen nothing yet, glory projects costing billions of pounds will go ahead (HS2 & 3rd runway at Heathrow) and everyone will pay for them only to have them sold off to private enterpise at a loss (to ensure a sale)

        Whoever wins the next election will have to make the most savage cuts in history, at least 50% across all departments over 5 years.

        If the cuts are not implemented then the markets will demand Wonga rates of interest for any borrowing by the government.

    Google’s decision to remove a BBC article from some of its search results was “not a good judgement”, a European Commission spokesman has said.

    A link to an article by Robert Peston was taken down under the European court’s “right to be forgotten” ruling

        So far, Rolfy baby and Hall are the only high profile ones to be convicted for their carrying ons, and he is 84yo and Hall is about the same age. Those weren’t the only ones, Savile judging by what has been exposed was far worse, it is remarkable they managed to continue for so long and nothing was done by BBC management and the political leaders (with whom they rubbed shoulders with) of the time when they were active.

        Forgotten the reign of terror? Many people sadly have…was at a party where the green energy subsidy and the “free government boiler loan that isn’t free” thing were roundly derided and “why don’t people in government know about this!”

        I said, “They did know!”, “Ed Miliband was involved in all that nonsense when he was the environment minister!”.

        Always happy to reduce labour supporters to stunned silence and red faces. Perhaps labour should replace the red rose with the red face after that 13 years?

      It was probably worth forgetting, a smoke and mirrors time. They seemed like a breath of fresh air after the years of Tory government sleaze and bickering, poor Johnny Major will his “bastards” (his term not mine) harrasing him for not doing what he wanted them to, the Tory party made themselves a complete laughing stock which ended in their greatest defeat ever. Having said all that about the Cons, Liebore similarly proved no better with sleaze, dodgy dossiers, mysterious deaths and involved in an unwinnable war. The British people deserve far better than this sort of thing.
