Andy "Makeup" Burnham: another fascist wannabe

Via the ever-sensible (for an MP, anyway) Douglas Carswell, comes this delightful tail of another totalitarian twat:

His plans to rein in the internet, and censor some websites, are likely to trigger a major row with online advocates who ferociously guard the freedom of the world wide web.

However, Mr Burnham said: “If you look back at the people who created the internet they talked very deliberately about creating a space that Governments couldn’t reach. I think we are having to revisit that stuff seriously now. It’s true across the board in terms of content, harmful content, and copyright. Libel is [also] an emerging issue.

First off, you fucking illiterate loon, how the fuck do you think you're going to rate websites? I use blogger, which is based out of the USA where they have fairly strong free speech laws. They will just tell you to fuck off. Secondly, there is nothing in the HTTP standard that allows any kind of censorship or rating system. So this is just a load of wishful thinking cockwaffle on your part.

Secondly, given the totalitarian nature of your government, is it any fucking surprise that people want a place where you can't stick your filthy fascist fingers in?

And stop fucking lying about libel, you cunt. The same laws that govern libel in newspapers and other media apply to the intermong as well. You're just fucked off because there is a whole media sector that doesn't suck the pink pole of Labour spinmeisters, a bunch of people who have found a way of providing a real opposition viewpoint to your government's incompetence and lies, since Call Me Dave is so entirely fucking useless at it.

Keep pushing, fuck face. Sooner or later it's going to boil over and the harder you squeeze, the worse it's going to be for you when it does pop. I'm off to the piano shop now.

Eye-Liner Burnham is a complete waste of skin.

The cunt is stealing oxygen from the human race.

I think the regulation will be through the ISP. “black boxes”, such as the ones they are supposed to be putting in already (have put in??) will be able to filter content, as well as record stuff, of course.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while and can’t see anything around it. A lot of providers already have Phorm, to which the lack of opposition is scary.

I thought I would see some rants about this. They just don't get it, do they?


Fuck 'em Obo, and double up on the piano wire.

Fuck the piano wire, I'll happily chip in for a Steinway grand to drop on the self-propelled heap of syphilitic cock-scrapings.

How I loath them all. Bastards.

Old Holborn said...

I just heard the cunt on the news talking about censoring the internet "in the public interest"

The whole point of the internet is that it already serves the "public interest".

That's why they hate it so much. It isn't designed to serve THEIR interests.

Look how angry they were when printing presses were invented. Look how they immediately licenced both TV/radio transmitters AND recievers.

Expect a fight

Great post! I have been laughing my head off all day reading about what a total wanker Burnham is.

He's a fucking make-up wearing freak!

Without words we have only bullets.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

What to do though when they announce that all websites are banned XXX 18R+ unless passed as suitable by the British Board Of Website Classification ?

The only thing on our side is that they will be trying to take away something that we already have and with which the younger generation have grown up.
I don't think they will take kindly to mucking about with their Facebooks or Myspace.

for all your hanging requisites. Why waste a whole Steinway?

Don't you realise he only wants more control to "protect the chi-ildren"?

Get a rope, Obo. Piano wire would make it quicker.

Chalcedon said...

Obo, I get a slight sense that you are just a little irate about this Burnham Noo Labour control freak fascist junta of a creature.

This mantra of "it's for the sake of the kiddies" is just a bit too convenient. I've been surfing the net since 1994 and never, ever stumbled across that sort of thing.
