Computer Weekly: Conservatives erase Internet history

 

This is quite an incredible story and somewhat goes against what Cameron said back in 2010:   " we want our political system to be more accountable and more transparent."


"it is a well known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it."

Indeed they will. However they won't be as easy to retrieve as they once were by doing a simple Google search (I think that was the gist of the piece).

The bots grab web pages for the benefit of plebs like those Cameron and Osborne claimed to be speaking for in those years before they were elected. The bots were what made the democratization of information possible. It was bots that inspired Cameron and Osborne. It was bots that were going to free us from serfdom in the way they said we would be. Without the bots you just had pockets of power and privilege for those in the know. Without the bots you just had the same old concentration of wealth and power there had always been, since long before the Internet Archive started taking snapshots of the Conservative website in 1999.

Rise up comrades. Keep the red flag flying.

Seeing the thread title, I thought they'd managed to wipe their Google search history. Which might well have contained much more interesting things than their speeches. ;)

I don't get it.  Labour stopped doing this years ago and the Lib Dems did it within days of them becoming Coalition partners.  The Lib Dem strategy and policy section was massive and had many, many detailed policies that they'd shared in advance to get views and perceptions before becoming official policy, many widely differing to the things they support today, that disappeared quickly.  I know that quite well as I responded to quite a few and still have a few hanging around on my hard drive.

 

Why would any political party want to provide the media with an easy own-goal of speeches and policies from different times?  I'm just surprised it took them this long to do it.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Cameron's "hug a hoodie" speech in full.

 

Is there a particular speech that the average "leftie" now wants to access that they didn't give a toss about at the time?

The Tories don't want anyone to realise that they spouted just as much  soundbite newspeak then as they do now.

 

Labour  don't want anyone to realise that they actually did things ten years ago, not just made empty promises.

 

 

The LibDems don't want anyone to realise that ten years ago, although they were harebrained, they didn't just bend over and take it up ,the arris from either one of the other parties that would offer them ministerial salaries.

This has been brushed under the carpet by all three parties for years.

I'm an above average lefty which means there must be a below average lefty somewhere. My money is on an SWP member in London who hasn't sold enough papers or read enough Trotsky this week. The Revolution is on hold this week!

How about Cameron saying "The NHS is safe in our hands"? Thought not, or we will not privatise the Royal Mail, or rural bus services are safe?

 

& Yes, I am a "Leftie" and proud of it, I have even been sounded out about standing for Parliament at the next General Election as a candidate for the SWP (I'm not, by the way, but they did ask)

Was it Kim Howells who hit the delete button? It seems he's quite good at getting rid of stuff.

The list of accusations is, accusations that (like those over Falkirk) Cameron daren't make outside the Commons. Take it from one who's experiencing it, the NHS is going to hell in a handcart under this lot!
