Duh BillApril 10, 2010
If you’re not on Twitter, you’re been spared me banging on about the Digital Economy Bill, a rushed-through piece of legislation that was introduced not long after Peter Mandelson had dinner with David Geffen at the Rothschilds. In the end, the Bill passed. As Rory Wilson put it “A bill proposed by the unelected, debated by the ignorant and voted on by the absent.”
Let’s just concentrate on the ‘ignorant’. We already know that Stephen Timms thinks that the IP in “IP address” stands for “Intellectual Property“. Absolutely no crime in that, unless you happen to be The Minister For Digital Britain, which Timms happens to be. Today, @loveandgarbage sent me this humdinger that arrived through his letterbox, part of an electioneering pamphlet for his local MP, Michael Connarty. Get a load of this.
These people want to lead us!
