Stop The Wash Up Of The Internet

I have written to my MP previously about it, now this is down to the wire to stop them using the non-democratic wash up procedure to allow Mandelson to push through the record and film corporations internet abusing laws (email is better than twitter, faxes better than email, letters better than faxes, personal interaction better than phone calls…bribery better than all that, and thus we get to the motivation behind the bill! I don’t think this ‘e-activism’ can change the underlying drives but if it becomes a media embarrassment that might pause the procedure in this pre-election period)-

We have just one day before Parliament returns, Brown calls an election, and Mandelson’s underlings try to ram the Digital Economy Bill through Parliament without debate and scrutiny.

You can take action today:

You can – in about a minute – send tweets to the Ministers, Shadow Ministers, and find a link to your local MP and candidates, if they are on Twitter.

You can also find links to 38 Degrees MP email page.

Please take action today: this is nearly the last moment. We need to put on as much pressure as possible.

    Debate is going now, from what the govt say they are going for it, full of industry talking points on theft from creatives by evil file sharers. Which reminds me of this graph-

    I saw Hunt on earlier today….he was saying that he would ‘reluctantly’ support the bill as there is a need for the majority to be passed even if there were ‘bad elements’. Nice to see that there is a difference between the two parties…..oh, hang on a minute….there fucking isn’t is there?

    Nice image….shame the album was a bit of a disappointment (apparently, it is Glenn Beck’s favourite….eeww).

    I think Muse disavowed his support rather funnily. Not a big fan myself, some is ok and they put on a good show. This will be one of those legislate in haste repent at leisure things, except they won’t repent and we will be saddled with this retarded legislation. Note the wikileaks vid can be torrented, in future leaks of vid can be hindered through application of this legislation.
