Blog Censorship In The UK

From Chicken Yoghurt-

Tim Ireland’s Bloggerheads site is currently down after his webhost pulled the plug. You can thank the latest Russian (that should be Uzbek) billionaire to reach the UK. The details will come out in due course.

This also means that the family of websites that Tim and Clive (whose site is also down) look after are also currently AWOL. So if you’re missing the online presences of Craig Murray, Bob Piper or Boris Johnson, now you know why they’ve gone.

Tim and Clive are now looking for a new web home for themselves and the rest and are hoping to be back within 48 hours. If any sympathetic souls would help spread the word, it would be most appreciated.

Now I am not remotely interested in football, hence I have not been overly worked up about this oligarch buying some business designed to fleece people for watching millionaires play a child’s game. However I really don’t like rich people using lawyers to enforce censorship, but it must be said that the allegations against Alisher Usmanov are completely unfounded. He is not a pig eyed sack of shit who does it with dead badgers, nor does he smell of rancid piss and have the dress sense of a retarded geography teacher. Using his billions to pay a fine firm of lawyers to close down bloggers is absolutely a noble pursuit and certainly him and all those lawyers should be commended on their excitingly authoritarian values. Anyone who says they are money grubbing weasels who don’t deserve to be pissed on even if they were on fire is clearly completely wrong and is the sort of person who Google’s – Craig Murray Usmanov – and reads the third result down. Obviously such lowlife thinks this fine litigious billionaire is a sleazy cretin who fancies his own mum, how wrong they would be! Best of all it confirms the law as an instrument of control wielded by the wealthy, which is of course a fine principle held by all right thinking people & lawyers who are absolutely not imbecilic Neanderthals, a conversation with whom would be less preferable than gargling cold diarrhoea whilst listening to Paris Hilton singing Britney covers. Have I made myself clear?

    You may get a letter about your comments on Britney Spears.

    I believe a company which represents a certain upstanding oligarch has also represented the pantie-less one in the past.

  9. RickB Says:

    Hello Beau,
    Funny they are called S(c)hillings. Why must you recall such a terrible image as Spears unbound, you scurrilous satirist you. She is not remotely attractive, if I had to choose a celebutard going commando it’d have to be Lindsay.

  10. beau bo d'or Says:

    My apologies for vaguely reminding you of the image of Ms. Spears wearing a white diaphanous top with ruffled sleeves over a short black dress with a gold antelope? horn shaped pendant suspended round her neck by a thin gold chain, hair swept back, revealing a twin diamond studded earring, her pallid, chubby thighs splayed, pushing her dress up to show her caesarean scar and a distinct lack of pubic hair.
    I shall refrain from mentioning it again.

    I have, however, much greater problems than poor Tim et al as I am now expecting a strict telling off from lawyers representing The Oxford English Dictionary for using the word pantie-less in my previous post.
    It looks like hyphens are on their way out.

    You can see from the link that the word pot-belly has been separated into two words. Schillings again on behalf of their billionaire client ?

    A small piece of trivia.
    Did you know that Tommy Steele’s lawyers were called “Half A Schixpence”

  20. RickB Says:

    Tommy Steele! He should do a duet singing ‘Kiss Me’ with Schixpence None the Richer. I wonder if Schillings do any pro-bono work to make up for being celebrity hacks. I say feel free to hyphenate anything you like and to hell with the lazy typing/texting people unreasonably influencing dictionaries who feel the need to be fashionable in press releases. Language is a fluid evolution and we can influence it as much as anyone. Pantie-less or not. Which brings me to your photographic like memory of Ms. Spears, as someone once said of her- the world’s no.1 Joe Bugner lookalike

    I feel she may have a firmer place in your affections than mine, I will now have to mentally cleanse my palate by image googling Nastassja Kinski & Rina Sawaguchi. I’m not going to enjoy it though, it’s simply a matter of good mental health. Ok, safe search off…Hello!
