Sherlock Holmes in North Norfolk

Guido thinks this might be a one-pipe problem. Iain Dale’s blog was blogjacked Friday afternoon by an unkown hacker, who Iain assumes to be based not a million miles from his LibDem opponents. Let us examine the evidence :-
  • It was a well written parody.
  • It begins “Poisson Rouge”, though this clue is possibly a “red herring”.
  • It also gently mocked the LibDems.
  • Iain logged into his blog at the offices of the Eastern Daily Press in Cromer, North Norfolk at 12.30 on Friday to show a local journalist how easy it was to blog. He keyed in his username and password on their office computer.
  • A few hours later the blog was mysteriously hacked by a well informed writer.

Are you thinking what Guido is thinking?

UPDATE: The plot thickens. “While I appreciate Guido’s efforts to help me track down my hacker I have absolutely no doubt that there is no Eastern Daily Press link. The fact that I logged into my Blog on one of their computers shortly before the hacking is an unfortunate coincidence.” Iain Dale.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
