Yet more plans to censor the blogs
Do you remember when we reported that Nu-Labour had plans to censor the blogs? Nothing came of that, but the idea is still milling around and will probably be taken up by an incoming Tory government. We be pretty sure of that largely because Baroness Bunscombe, the new chairwoman of the Press Complaints Commission, wants to extend her organisation's remit to include your friendly old Exile and his mates. Baroness Dunscombe, in case you don't know sits on the Tory benches in the House of Lords.
Somebody really should tell this brainless bimbo that it's called the World Wide Web for a reason. It allows a bloke in Mexico to comment on British matters, using a server that sits in the USA. Good luck regulating that!
