We've all been BANNED

Davey B was chasing his tail with joy last week at news that his blog has apparently been banned by Liverpool Direct (although my Council sources tell me it hasn't been blocked from any computers in the Municipal Buildings or local libraries).

Meanwhile, I conducted one of my regular checks on local MP's websites, only to find that Garston's Maria Eagle appears to have banned the entire city from accessing her site.

I assumed it was a temporary problem, but having tried every day for over a week all I can get are imposing FORBIDDEN messages and news that I "don't have permission to access this site."

You would think that this close to a General Election an MP wouldn't be so shy about promoting herself.

Unless of course she is about to announce she is standing down to spend more time in her lavish new £7,140 bathroom, part funded by the taxpayer before she flipped her second home allowance back to her London flat?

Talk about "splashing out" at our expense.

So far she has been allowed to get away with it, remaining, ironically a Justice Minister!!!

DUDE - WHAT IS YOUR CRITERIA FOR THE DELETION OF COMMENTS ? I WAS SHOCKED TO READ THE COMMENT FROM FURIOUS GAY. CAN YOU GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF HIS PAST POSTINGS TO ENABLE US TO JUDGE FOR OURSELVES WHETHER YOU ARE BEING FAIR AND REASONABLE.

I publish all comments regardless of political persuasion so long as they are not:
a) Blatantly libellous or
b) In very poor taste.

An example of a previous post from this particular individual that was deleted was the suggestion that a failed romantic liaison between Ms Kennedy and a Mr Hatton led to Ms Kennedy opposing militant.

Other posts I have deleted over the years include unsubstantiated or irrelevant comments about the personal lives of councillors from both sides of the chamber.

Wow, Mr. Ombudsman, you assume i'm a male. Thats the sort of mistake a journalist would make.

Mrs Furious Gay said...

The Phythian on occasion. When drunk.

Of course, I can make myself available in the Vernon or Saddlers any time.

And it's Mrs, thank you very much.
