Rosindell Googling Himself in the Early Hours

Rozzer has clearly been sat in front of his computer late at night Googling himself in the early hours of the morning. This arrived in the inbox at 1.30 this morning:

Dear Guido Fawkes

It has been drawn to my attention that on a posting dated the 24th April 2007, there are some extremely offensive comments relating to myself.

I have no problem with anyone taking part in your blog posting criticisms of me for my actions in parliament or my political views, but the remarks on this page are very personal and unpleasant as well as being untrue.

They also relate to other individuals, my family and my staff, which I find particularly offensive.

I would be grateful if you would remove them from the internet.

Thank you for your co-operation.

With best wishes.

Andrew Rosindell M.P.
Member of Parliament for Romford
Shadow Minister for Home Affairs

Looking after ROMFORD · Fighting for ENGLAND · putting BRITAIN first!

He is complaining about the entries in this caption competition from April last year.

Dear Andrew,

Yes they are unpleasant and offensive, they are also very funny. Straight insults and/or satire are however generally not considered defamatory. Nobody is seriously suggesting you and the dog are lovers. Clearly satirical comments of this nature are not actionable.

I have nevertheless had a quick look and removed a couple of comments which, at a stretch, could relate to staff members. Don’t see any about your family.

You are a public figure, you should expect public scrutiny, including ridicule. If you will go round kissing dogs for publicity photos, people are entitled to laugh and make jokes. They will therefore remain published.

On a more serious matter, I note you voted against transparency for MP’s expenses. Since we no longer have the stocks for those the public hold in contempt, my blog will have to do.

Regards,

Guido
