BNP Caught Lying - again

  interzone55 09:08 28 May 2009

On Friday the BNP's website was down, and came back early this week.

Naturally Nick Griffin decided this was the result of the "largest cyber attack in recorded history", the result of "A conspiracy by "Marxist cyber criminals" campaigning against the BNP"

They also claim that the Denial of Service Attack was targeted against Clear Channel who provide the BNPs street advertising - although Clear Channel deny they've been attacked.

Naturally this is a total pile of bull poo - the BNP simply moved their website to a different ISP and the new IP address hadn't propagated to the DNS servers properly.

Whoppers so thay can out lie the others if ever we have the misfortune to elect them to Westminster.

Oh no! I hope they don't claim on their expenses the costs of sorting it out :P

If they do it will be "Within the rules"!

Although my political tendecies have always been towards one party (I will not mention which as it makes no difference to this post)I seem now to have lost confidence in all of them.
I really don't know how any party is going to persuade voters that they are doing "The right thing" and have their constituents at heart.
It's a mess!!

Couldn't agree more.

There is something to be said for deselecting the lot of them and starting afresh at the General Election.

They have all been part of the system and whether or not they took full advantage they ALL knew what was going on!

Yeah, none of them turned around and said, "Oh, this expenses system is costing our constituents far too much! Let's do something about it before an outsider cottons on and blows the whistle on us.", did they?

If only the electorate were enabled to call ageneral election which of course is not possible, I feel all parties would tread more warily.
Perhaps MP's could be deselected by a constituency vote, if there was a vote of no confidence by the local party.

PS. Politics, and it's manouverings has never been my strong point.
