I am 100% sure that he was behind some spam campaign when I worked in Akismet but a cursory search doesn’t find the links. I might search my work archives.

Either way he is part of an incompetent government.

Priti Damn Stupid

– “Travellers to the UK from Monday will have to quarantine in one specific address for 14 days when they come into the UK”

– “But they will be allowed to break the two-week coronavirus quarantine to pop out for food, attend funerals and can use public transport”

So people can arrive, take several buses / underground to a shop of their choice, takeaway, Nandos, McD’s etc

Priti Patel just redefined quarantine.

Still happy you voted Tory?

The National Press is pathetic

I used to subscribe to The Guardian. I did so after their work with Edward Snowden and Wikileaks. Then the Govt told the national press that mentioning Assange and his incarceration was a no-no. This absolutely happened because all mention of Assange disappeared. He became non-news. The foreign press would write, but no domestic.

Craig Murray wrote though. And he also covered, in detail, the recent trial of Alex Salmond. If you compared our national press reporting to what Craig reported you can see that the Press were conforming to an agreed narrative. They did not report what they could have done.

The Guardian, despite trumpeting their reporting prowess has been a puppet of the Govt. They have no more bite than a jelly baby. Hence I no longer subscribe and their site is certainly not whitelisted in all my adblocking measures (use https://nextdns.io to adblock on all devices, along with uMatrix and Block Origin).

Now though the Scottish Govt are after Craig himself. How much of this is being reported in the nation’s press? Nothing at all.

Looks like a Show Trial to me. Here, in the UK, in 2020.
