Woo, an early day motion with nine signatures.

This is pointless non news, early day motions rarely go anywhere.

Wake me up when it's been agreed to have the debate, which will not happen any time soon.

"added that the "behaviour in question" was "unlikely to be repeated".

Surely they should be apologising at least and telling plod that it will NEVER happen again.

Prosecutors prep decision on BT-Phorm case

FailKing
FAIL

Full of Fail

Someone in the home office must have been aware of the EU directives on this, and knew that the UK gov hadn't implemented them. So the government advised BT and Phorm that they had no intention of implementing a law that would see them prosecuted.

My prediction is that the case will be dropped. My take on "if a prosecution would be in the public interest" is whether it is worth the publics money to fight BTs expensive lawyers.

This whole affair is a big pile of FAIL.

The CPS

Good to see the CPS have plenty of time to bring this non-case to court, yet they can't even decide if it's in the publics interest to bring Phorm and BT to court for real crimes. How long have they been reviewing the evidence in that case? 1 and a half years? One dumb rule for the man on teh street and another for corporate entities.

Game FAIL Theory

Player 1 = fail

Player 2 = fail government

player 3 = I WANT TO KILL PLAYER 1

player 2 = we'll give him if you promise to tickle him and not KILL HIM

player 3 = we'll only "tickle" him, just hand him over.

player 2 = ok, that sounds reasonable, here you go.

player 1 = player 2 - I don't trust player 3

player 2 = be quiet player 1, player 3 is my bestest friend

player 3 = hello little man, welcome to MY WORLD
