Telegraph Owners Take Down Nadine's Blog

Dizzy has the scoop:

Some interesting developments have happened overnight. Nadine Dorries has seen the blog part of her website instantly taken down after she made allegations against the owners of the Telegraph Group, Sir David Barclay and Sir Frederick Barclay.

Lawyers acting for the Barclay brothers, Withers, instructed the takedown to Acidity via mail last night, citing the Acceptable User Policy. The takedown will be bolstered by the Godfrey vs Demon precendent, where an order can be made and it will be done instantly.

Nadine DorriesShe did make some off the wall allegations on the blog, she is clearly angry with the Telegraph, but accusing the Barclay brothers of setting out to destabilise the political establishment because they favour UKIP and the BNP was a bit barmy.  It did lead Guido to suggest yesterday that Nadine Needs a Holiday.

The blog is still available in the Google cache.

The Telegraph has put out this tactful explanation as to how they came into possession of the discs.  Note no mention of money changing hands.
