How to Buy Influence in the General Election Debate

Monday, 22 May, 2017 - 14:30

Hot on the heels of news stories about how big money bought influence in the Brexit referendum and how money was channelled into "Psyops" to manipulate the result comes a breaking story about how the Tory Party is attempting to influence what news people see when they search or information about the

May's internet 'plans'

 

 

 

 

The publication of the Conservative Party's manifesto has revealed the full and chilling expanse of Theresa May's plans for the internet.

To quote the Conservative manifesto "Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet, we disagree." This statement makes it abundantly clear that in a Conservative government internet censorship would increase beyond even the lengths that we see today. Whilst you can argue the benefits in some aspects of the policy, in particularly the plan to enable anyone to delete their history from when they were under 18, many of them misunderstand how the internet functions and, more importantly, this does not detract from the plain fact that Theresa May plans to "take control of the internet"

Going Equipped

Section 25 of the 1968 Theft Act created the offence of "going equipped" for burglary or theft and refers to the possession of housebreaking implements including any item that is designed to be used to carry out a theft or burglary, as well as any items made specifically by a thief for use in committing a burglary.

The CPS [1] says that that law makes it an offence to knowingly possess an article for use in the course of or in connection with theft/ burglary and observes that the possession of the article must occur before the commission of the offence.

The CPS goes on to say that "Prosecutors should consider the evidence as a whole in order to determine whether or not there is sufficient evidence that the item is possessed for use or in connection with theft. Possession of an item alone, such as an empty rucksack or a pair of gloves, may be insufficient to found a charge of going equipped."

Pirate Party UK Launched their Open Manifesto

Friday, 19 May, 2017 - 11:00

Pirate Party UK launched its Open Manifesto for the 2017 General Election on Wednesday 17th May, with the core policies of free speech, radical reform of copyright, and the end of mass surveillance of innocent people. The launch took place right in front of the SIS building (the home of MI6) in Vauxhall where Mark Chapman, the Party's Lead Candidate is standing.

Press Hit: Pirate Party looks to make waves with Vauxhall manifesto launch

The Pirate Party wants to rock the boat in Westminster with a manifesto launch yesterday in Vauxhall.

Other branches of the party have gained ground in countries such as Iceland in recent years, standing on a platform of internet freedom and the reduction of government surveillance, and the UK party hopes to do the same.

Mark Chapman, the Vauxhall candidate who won 201 votes in the last general election, joined party leader David Elston and Vale of Glamorgan candidate to reveal the manifesto in front of the MI6 building.

They both expect that their policies will increasingly resonate with voters and impact future politics.

Out of date Operating Systems leave NHS open to latest cyber attack

Friday, 12 May, 2017 - 21:00

Earlier today we saw the WanaCrypt0r 2.0 ransomware (the updated version of the WCry ransomware that first appeared in March) spread across the globe infecting companies and organisations ranging from Telefonica in Spain to the NHS here in the UK. @malwrhunterteam starting posting about it on Twitter when it was infecting countries other than the UK, then a few hours later there were reports of the NHS under cyber attack.

What is the Pirate Party UK and why do they have a general election candidate in Norwich North?

If you were expecting a lighthearted political party espousing the rights of salty seadogs, you would be very mistaken.

In fact, the Pirate Party UK are extremely serious - about issues such as freedom of speech, personal privacy and reform of copyright.
