A couple have been thrown off a bus in South Yorkshire for singing the Peppa Pig theme tune to their autistic child, as a way to calm her down. Yet in doing so the couple stirred the righteous anger of a Muslim woman dressed in a Hijab, who proceed to rage at the parents declaring them unfit and racist for singing Peppa Pig theme tune to their distressed child, as in doing so this offended her and her religion.

With the internet now an established reality in our every day lives, and with this macro development of the internet in to lives both public and private, not to mention business and entertainment. We have also seen the growth of a new on-line phenomenon, the rise and rise of social media. Social media is undeniably ubiquitous and it dominates our social and private lives in the same way the internet does, indeed arguably it has become a necessary addition to the way we live our lives. But it is also self-evident to the point of being a tautology to say that the internet and social media in having brought many positives to our lives and a big plus in its favour, has also tagged in with it certain negatives, its dark underbelly as it were.

Since I’d been away from blogging for over a year upon my return to blogging I’d noticed some irritating changes to WordPress, changes which I didn’t like. That change was Zemanta no longer being a part of the features, a feature which I’d used a lot in the past. Why Zemanta, simply because I like it as a feature, because it is easy to use and provides a useful tool to the kind of blogging that I do. Anyway if you liked and you miss those Zemanta features here is the download link, you’re welcome :)
Please note I am not an employee of Zemanta nor am I a paid up promoter. Zemanta just works for me :)
Politics is for all the people not just a vested few, what is also true is that the politics of being against the status quo is also for all the people and not just for the self-appointed self inflated few. Continue reading

We are all Old Holborn: You can’t censor nor silence an idea!
In the course of putting together this blog post it came to my attention over the weekend of the Twitter storm that has blown up around the disappearance of Old Holborn. It would seem that group of Stasi-like wannabe twitters have banded to together to ‘hunt down’ (their words,) any supporters of OH. Indeed as I write they are targeting one now Chaos is Order @ Sir_ Olly_C. Sir Olly whom over the weekend has endured threats to his person, & has had his old home address plastered over the internet, with what looks like an active campaign to out his present home address is currently under way. It would therefore seem that Sir Olly is being directly targeted in a campaign of hate & harassment. This is not a legitimate, proportional or right response. This band of twitter lynch mob trolling bullies expose themselves for what they truly are a spiteful, vindictive group of haters whom are quite willing to break the law when it suits them, yet go crying to the law when they get upset with over sensitive hurt feelings, the hypocrisy & irony is all too clear.
Their wallowing whining self-pity & self-righteous manufactured offence taking is just another excuse to silence those views they don’t to like or want to see. They have brought shame to themselves, their city & their cause. They are beneath contempt. If they wish to act like a group of Stasi-esque/Nazi-esque informers of the state, then they shall be treated as such, & as such stand revealed & reviled as enemies of freedom & liberty. Their one duty is to shut the fuck up & go crawl back in to the cess pit from which they have emerged, if they can’t do this then be sure that they will stand as examples of the worst kind of human excreta.
Today I stand in support of Old Holborn, Today I stand in support of Sir Olly. I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to death your right say it! So to all those trolling bullies, that group of illiberal eternally grief-stricken, who revel & wallow unashamedly in their adopted cess pit of victimhood. You are exposed you are known, you actions & behaviour define who you are & you are the enemy within, you are a part of the problem.
As of this afternoon Old Holborn has reappeared back on the ether.

In Defence of Old Holborn:
Over the last few days the controversial blogger & prolific user of social media Old Holborn (OH) has been silently & chillingly been removed from the internet ether, his entire internet presence has literally been wiped! Now having read OH for some time indeed any who know of his blogging & twitting will no doubt have an inkling as to the tone & content of his musings. Continue reading
