back to article Conservatives cock-up over pound again

A Tory blog has been penetrated by an act of classic web waggery after it leeched bandwidth via a picture used to illustrate a posting about party fees. There was something of an uprising among members last year, with some claiming they were being shafted by the new pricing structure. The Blaby Conservative Future site, run by …

Ha ha ha ha!

As a b3tard myself, I fully endorse this.

Serves the thieving so-and-so(s) right.

Out of interest ...

... as I can't be bothered to keep checking back, will El Reg let us know if they *ever* twig what's happened.

eagle eyed ?

I might wear specs, but I'm no Mr Magoo....

"Eagle-eyed readers will notice the words "vote Labour" underneath the coin."

I spied "B3TA MEN" instead. Do I win a jizz-covered pound for spotting the deliberate error ?

Ignore that. Apparently I'm more of a Mr Magoo that I thought...

Here's to anonymous posting in the future !

Look under the coin, not on the rim

Conversatives in NSFW shock

Is this a "proper" conservative website? I only ask, as they seem to have a sense of humor:

Damn, it's been pulled...

Just when I'd thought of something puerile to add to the splendidly long list of puerile comments too!

And ... I'm spent.

They've just pulled the plug on the whole page. And just as I was about to impersonate Daniel Hayward to demonstrate how insecure the comments are.

awww... it's just been "pulled"

Looks like the game is up... the page was 404 for a while and now appears to be 'invite only'. Shame, some of the comments were pure class...

oowwww not fair :(

I had it on my screen, laughing heartily, send a link round the office, then wham, it's taken down. I refreshed my page and lost it, now i'm searching through HTML cache to try and find it, but i think i've lost it all - if anyone knows how to retrieve it, please post up - it was on my screen before i refreshed the page.

Quite possibly the funniest slur on conservatism i've ever read.

All hail the power of El Reg!!!

Bollocks, seems to have gone. I've kept a backup of the comments though, which will naturally be appearing on my site shortly.

13:37 - It's taken down.

It was taken down at 13:37 lol. Shame.

On another slight NSFW note, here's an amusing Microsoft Partnership oops/cockup that was shown to a collegue of mine.

It seems that what was on that coin has left another Tory minister with egg on his face.

Pedantry

Title should either be "Conservatives' cock-up (n.)", or "Conservatives cock up (v.)". Entertaining article, though, of course!

Eagle-eyed

Blimey, I should think that even an eagle would have trouble spotting the "vote labour" phrase (assuming it could read). I only saw it vaguely by loading it an image editing program and jacking up the gamma/contast to excessive levels. Even then, I probably wouldn`t have recognised it as what it actually is, unless I`d already been told.
