Craig Oliver v Raheem Kassam Twitter Bitch Fight

Nigel Farage has upset the old parties and the BBC with his comments from last autumn – which are suddenly emerging now – about axing race discrimination laws. And lo, Nige and Dave’s thumb-twiddling tweet doctors are having it out on Twitter. In text speak.

Why not just ditch the whole TV debates thing completely and decide it all in 140 characters. Said no one ever.

Anti-Recycling Green Party Poster

BLAIR-RECYCLING-GREEN-PARTY Gaia Guido has come up with an idea for a Green Party campaign poster which he is happy to share for free. Following Tony Blair’s generous recycling of £106,000 he got from various dictators to various Labour candidates in marginal constituencies, here is a poster idea for their Green Party opponents. If you like the idea and want a higher-resolution Photoshop version, do email in…  

Government Wants to Pry About Prying

GCHQ at Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

The government have been kind enough to launch a consultation on the revisions and updates to the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. Essentially they want to know what you think about their plans to spy on you. Specifically, they want to hear from the public on the newly-proposed Equipment Interference Code and an updated Interception of Communications Code of Practice. In a forward to the consultation, James Brokenshire, Minister of State for Immigration and Security, assures the public that:

“In order to continue to keep us safe, the Security and Intelligence Agencies need the full range of investigatory tools at their disposal. But the public needs to know that these powers are used appropriately and are subject to stringent oversight…

There are limits on what can be said in public about this work. But it is imperative that the Government is as open as it can be about these capabilities and how they are used. The public and Parliament needs to have confidence that there is a robust statutory framework for the use of such intrusive investigative powers and that there is a strong system of safeguards in place…

The abilities to read or listen to a suspect’s communications or to interfere with his or her computer equipment are among the most important, sensitive, and closely scrutinised powers available to the state..”

You can let Mr Brokenshire know what you think by taking part in the consultation hereOr just discuss it on Whatsapp or Snapchat with someone with a foreign sounding name…

Jim On The Run

Jim Murphy has pulled out of a public appearance today, after the McAshcroft poll pointed to a total rout for the party north of the border. Guido is told that Scottish Labour hope to ‘reschedule’ a stunt that would have their leader selling copies of the Big Issue for the day.[…] Read the rest

Confirmed: WhatsApp to Blame For ISIS Advance, Not Snapchat

Last week Techno Guido reported that former defence secretary Tom King believed the reason for ISIS’s advance across Iraq and Syria was entirely down to either Snapchat or WhatsApp. After much speculation as to which teenage sexting app Lord King was referring to, he has gone on the record to confirm that he believes the speed of ISIS’s advance “was achieved on WhatsApp”.[…] Read the rest

Guido assumes that Douglas Carswell’s kids have got hold of his iPad or iPhone:

Though Douglas is an advocate of digital democracy so perhaps this is a virtual simulation of utopia…

Peer: ISIS Gains “Entirely Due” to WhatsApp or Snapchat

In a moment of admirable honesty while scrutinising the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, former defence secretary Tom King admitted that while he’s not a tweeter and he does not know about WhatsApp and Snapchat, he is certain that “the terrorists and jihadists do”:

So certain is Lord King of the terrorists’ prowess with WhatsApp and Snapchat, that he believes the reason for ISIL’s advance across Iraq and Syria was entirely down to the teenage sexting apps:

“It includes the use of things that not all your Lordships—that certainly includes me—are masters of.
