Orange Hypocrisy Prize for Literature

Guess which corporation sponsored the respected anti-censorship campaigners Index on Censorship?

“Orange and Index on Censorship have linked up to create an innovative partnership designed to stimulate debate on social and political issues” The first Orange Index Debate at the University of London was on the subject “Does a civilised society need censorship?”

The Orange Index Debates formed part of a wider partnership between Orange and Index on Censorship, which included in-depth research about issues relating to censorship and freedom of speech and led to Index on Censorship publishing “The A-Z of Free Expression”. Denise Lewis, Orange Group Director of Corporate Affairs, said at the time: “Orange Index Debates is the first Orange initiative to extend its literary portfolio into student environments, building on Orange’s longstanding commitment to encouraging debate and providing a platform for people to communicate and share their passions.” Obviously that commitment to literature, debate and the fight against censorship does not extend to staff writing on Tory blogs…

Guido has been unable to get anyone at Index on Censorship to comment.

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
