 Five years to the day after Jean Charles de Menezes was murdered in Stockwell tube station, the CPS have ruled on the killing of Ian Tomlinson at the G20 protests. No charges will be brought against the pigs who murdered him. Even though there is video footage of what happened. Even though a second post-mortem clearly showed through the police's bullshit and spin.

Our police force are out of control.

[Poll #1585590]On one hand, "Woo Pride!" But on the other "Boo commercialism and promotion of 'safe' issues to the detriment of more important but unpopular stuff!". I'm conflicted - help me out, guys.

Curse you Twitter, getting my hopes up like that.

Just found this blog post by them regarding their stance on the Digital Economy Bill... very nice to hear. 

Where a content owner (like a record label or a games company) approaches BE and requests the details of a member because of an alleged copyright infringement we will not supply this information direct to the requester unless they have a Court Order.


Yay for ISPs who won't be the music industry's bitch. :)

While I'm on, any Brits reading this might want to consider switching to them - they've given me probably the most reliable connection I've ever had, and definitely the fastest, and they're very reasonably priced (£17.88 a month for a static IP address and true unlimited usage at anything up to 24Mbps depending on line quality).

Their website is http://www.bethere.co.uk/, for anyone who's interested.

Well, that's Britain fucked.

Melt in a fire, Cameron. 

You too, Clegg.

Finally I'm away from the laptop and onto...

...the Windows box I previously had rigged up to the telly for games & film watching. 

Ty mam's cousin for the monitor - I probably would have gave in sooner but 720p isn't really a usable desktop resolution - now it's running at my usual 1680x1050.

Must say I'm pleasantly surprised by how usable Windows 7 is, actually - once I installed Chrome and found a nice Twitter client it almost feels like home. Still, don't know if I'll be able to adjust to how scruffy the fonts look, or not having a menubar. :(

*has a look at how to go about installing Leopard on it*

Also OMG Gordon Brown resigned! :O

K, off to the doctors and then it's voting time. While a Lib/Lab coalition would definitely be the best option, what's really important is keeping the Tories out. We should know by now that no good comes of them being in power.

I just hope most of the country feels the same way, ridiculous Obamaron Sun front page notwithstanding.

Looks like the Lib Dems doing well could seriously fuck things up for a certain Australian. And really, isn't that what life's all about? C:

Oh, and they are too.

No offence to the nice Australians on my flist BTW - it's just Murdoch I loathe and want to see fail.

I never thought this would happen, but I've been searching the interwebs for stuff on this area's candidates for the election, and the most appealing one is the Tory guy. D:

Obviously I don't want them to win the country as a whole (Cameron's all kinds of slimy, and they're the Tories, FFS), but considering the other options (a Lib Dem candidate who seems to be a bit of a god nut and, well, Kevan Jones), I'd be happy if this seat went blue. Probably never gonna happen anyway though - we're one of the safest Labour seats in the country.

Prediction for tomorrow: a turquoise sun rises on a pink sky and grass is discovered to be a sentient lifeform.

I know there's a few people into steampunk on my flist, and figured this was important enough to copypasta & help spread around:

(straight ⌘C/⌘V apart from the link at the top because I'm a lazy sod, and because there wasn't anything to add that f00l hadn't already said)


Professor Calamity, founder of Steampunk Magazine, has been arrested and is being held on felony charges for tweeting police movements at the G20 protests.

The police are raiding his house, confiscating just about anything they can get their hands on- "Curious George plush toys
[wtf? -Paul], artwork, correspondence with political prisoner Daniel McGowan, birth certificates, passports, the entire video archive of a local media collective, tax records, books, computers, storage devices, cell phones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs[again... the hell? -Paul], flags, banners, posters, photographs and more than can be recounted here."

His lawyer has convinced a judge to put a stop to these raids, however, god only knows if the police are even listening.

So for the love of god, let your 'punk friends know about this. Let's get this into the news.

And here I thought banning films was just some quaint memory...

The board said the movie’s nonstop scenes of torture — including amputation, eye-gouging, castration and evisceration — make it impossible to edit the film in a way which would make it acceptable for British viewers.


Seriously, BBFC... you made an 18 rating to restrict films for those supposedly able to think for themselves (and a completely pointless R18 one, because porn's special 9_9 ) - shouldn't legal adults be allowed to decide whether something's "acceptable" to them? DIAF, you fucking Whitehouse-zombie twats.
