Actually I saw the BBC report of Labour's website deletion yesterday
evening *before* reading the report of the Torys doing the same ...
perhaps you're only looking at articles that support your own bias?


He's obsessed.


He's in a self-affirmation bubble.

Oh I'm SO embarrassed! I searched diligently for that, didn't find it,
so concluded it didn't exist. Damn.


Don't bother using the BBC's search facility to search their own
website, it frequently fails to return articles you know are there. Use
google, and add "site:bbc.co.uk" without the quote marks to the search terms

The Conservative website's utilisation of the robots.txt file has meant
that website archives such as the well established Internet Archive have
deleted all their previously archived content - the Labour website has
not done this, so previous content remains in the archives.

Totally disgraceful behaviour from the socialist leftie menace, allowing
their previous speeches and past policies to be archived. The Tories
meanwhile have got it right - no need to confuse anyone by suggesting
that they ever had a different policy on anything.

May be so, but it does not make him wrong ;-)



Well that's true. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out
to get me...

I've got one thank you. It's a lovely one.

Both parties tidied up their web sites.

The Labour side cynically suggested that is was because they Tories had
something to hide.

They probably do, but nowhere near as much as Labour...



The Daily Mirror has a shockingly biased item about this. Not that it
matters. The Daily Mirror isn't financed by a poll tax. People don't get
thrown into jail for refusing to pay for it.

I was quite intrigued by this story, listening to it as I was stuck in
my usual evening rush hour traffic jam as the BBC seemed to be
attempting to make that case that unless material is recorded on a
particular website it is wiped from history.

All you can do sometimes is shake your head in despair at the ********
churned out, by not just the BBC but the media in general, in the name
of news.
