How’s That Social Media Thingy Working Out For Ya?

Remember when Labour tried to boost party morale by claiming that they may be outspent at this election, but at least they were winning the internetz? Well Facebook has not gone very well for them today. #CameronMustGo

13 Other Countries That Ban Encryption

putin

There’s been something of an uproar in the cryptography community following the revelation yesterday that Digital Dave is planning to clamp down on encrypted communication. It seems the PM’s plans aren’t just remarkably naive, they’re simply unenforceable. Most decent encryption technology is open source, eradicating it would mean arresting every geek with a laptop or shutting down the internet. However, Dave can take heart that he’s not in this fight alone, the other countries where there are known domestic controls on the use of encryption are Russia, China, Mongolia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Israel, Tunisia and Morocco.

That’s one hell of a club Dave’s trying to sign us up to…

Tories Use Paris Terror to Mobilise Election Leafleting

Perhaps a slightly ill-advised Facebook status from the Tory leaflet fodder machine “Roadtrip 2015” this morning:

Indeed, even its own Tory supporters are less than impressed:

The late editor of Charlie Hebdo was a supporter of the French communist party…

UPDATE: The post has now been deleted following Guido’s story.

Socialist Twitter Stasi Ban #EmptyShelvesInVenezuela Hashtag

The great socialist experiment is going so well in Venezuela that the country has run out of McDonald’s French fries and soap. Online dissent is being quelled by the authoritarian regime, with President Maduro’s government banning photos of bare supermarkets on the #AnaquelesVaciosEnVenezuela (#EmptyShelvesInVenezeula) hashtag. In solidarity with the oppressed peoples of of the Bolivarian Republic, Guido shares their plight:

Two years ago Owen Jones and Diane Abbott flew to Venezuela at the expense of the regime, giving the government a nice PR boost in spite of its atrocious human rights record. Now the people of Venezuela are crying out for help, where are they now?

Miliband Election Chief Wants Gong For Sex Assault Star

Labour’s walking election disaster Lucy Powell showed what a woman of the people she is with this tweet about darts champ Phil “The Power” Taylor:

Correct: Taylor never got a knighthood, though he was awarded an MBE in 2001. Only to have the gong annulled after he was found guilty of indecently assaulting two young women in his caravan. Bullseye!

We Want Our Website Back!

Amateur hour over at UKIP HQ, who seem to have forgotten to renew the domain name of their official website. Which doesn’t augur well for this afternoon’s whelk stall. Someone stick 50p in the meter…

UPDATE: A closer look at UKIP’s domain details shows the domain expires on March 22, 2016, but was mysteriously changed yesterday. Were UKIP hacked?

UPDATE II: It is a technical fault according to UKIP, “It is all paid for and will be up soon”. Have they tried switching it off and on again?

UPDATE III: Six hours later, it’s back up.

Labour Staffer’s Online “Gestapo Royals” Rant

Someone might want to have a quiet word with Labour regional organiser Rob Sherrington and tell him to step away from the Twitter:

If social media is going to win Labour the election, do they really need their paid staffers tweeting “f**k you” to the Queen, or calling her family Nazis?

Miliband’s Intro From Granny Rape JokerBiz Backer Says ‘Trafficking Underage Hookers’ Key to Success

Labour hope that social media is going to win them the election, so you might have thought they would have a look at the online presence of those chosen to introduce Ed Miliband at his speech in Manchester this morning.

Amman Ahmed took to the stage talk about the economy and business.

And what is the secret to his profit making success?

Apparently “trafficking underage hookers” and “raping elderly women and stealing their handbags”. According to his Facebook…
