    This is a perfect example of why I think corporations and government officials should be kept as far away from each other as possible. To add insult to injury the leaked document should be spread around the web via the same “web lockers” its trying to outlaw.

    How long will it be until stories like this no longer surprise us? How long until we’re more upset at the lack of a proper bribe from a business to get favourable legislation passed? “This week’s scandal: DeathCorp bribes to parliament dropped 28% from last year.”

    Castrate Razzall and Clement-Jones. Nail their testicles to the front doors of parliament and leave them there.

      Um, I’m not especially surprised by this, actually. The record companies have more than adequately demonstrated their contempt for any honest governmental process over this issue. They’ve aggressively lobbied, lied, and (I believe) bribed their way around the globe. How long, oh Lord, before these villains are declared to be illegal organizations?

    Its really scary and irresponsible that we allow people who have never sent an email in their lifetime and have absolutely only the faintest of idea what digital technology is to decide (sell?) our future, our freedom.

    One cannot vote for the Libdems (forget the two other parties, the moat cleaners and duck house owners).

    I think its time for the UK to get a proper Pirate Party who is up to date with reality, digitally literate and actually works for the voters and taxpayers – and not at criminalising them.

    Surprise factor: 0, Ew factor: 9.

    Corruption in UK politics? I don’t think we’ve seen more than the top of the iceberg, personally.
