    I suppose that the “Long Lost 1919 Manuscript” is simply a public domain book written before plastics and carbon fiber changed how balls and clubs were made.

    “runs the text through a thesaurus (seemingly to avoid copyright infringement charges) and pastebombs the resulting word-salad”

    And now we know how they wrote Cameron’s manifesto: Thatcher>thesaurus>pastebombing of word-vomit…

      The guy is obviously a rotter, but then what do you expect from a Tory party chairman? Do you remember these guys: John Selwyn Gummer (who fed his young daughter a mad cow burger on tv), Norman Tebbit (an extremely unpleasant right wing loon), Cecil Parkinson (silencing the mother of his illegitimate child through court order) – absolute wankers the lot of them. Damn the tories.

        You mean Baron Debin, Baron Tebbit, and Baron Parkinson… :-)

        Always thought ‘mad cow burger’ was a little unfair though. Gummer was alright; he was a pretty decent environment secretary. Even Tebbit was okay – the cricket test is generally misunderstood although he still deserves pillory for ‘get on your bike’. Parkinson’s a detestable worm, though.

    So: the Tory Party has officially become the Circumlocution Office. I have to say that I am not in the least surprised.

    Calling him a “spam kingpin” is kind of missing the point of his business model. He has software that automates the process of setting up spurious, content-free but search-engine-friendly websites that in theory could make some money from web advertising before they are detected and ejected from the Google searches… but he is not actually using that software himself. Instead he sells it to other people who are stupid enough and greedy enough to think that *they* can make money from web advertising on spurious websites. It’s a classic get-rich-scheme scam… it relies on the marks never stopping to ask themselves “If this is so lucrative, why isn’t *he* using it?”

    So “scam kingpin” would be closer to the truth.

    And now he can use the same software to write Conservative Party manifestoes! I can see the synergy.

    Hmmm… Get-rich-quick scheme whilst ignoring consequences of said scheme…

    Standard Tory policy for pretty much anything really.
