"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

On The Eighth Day of Christmas



That's it, I think, until after Christmas. There seems to be very little happening in the run-up, apart from snow, snow and more snow.

The internet still remains a challenge to the UN and the US Federal Communications Commission while in the UK ISPs have come out against Ed Vaizey's idiotic support of an 'opt-in' on porn. That's some consolation I suppose but tptb won't stop trying to filter and control the information we can access via a free internet.

I've scheduled some Carols for those of you who like them while I'm away doing what most MPs should do - spending more time with my family. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, don't overdo the brandy and mince pies, and I'll be back when I'm back.

I almost forgot this: Christmas trees make non-Christians feel excluded which just goes to show that Canada has its fair share of idiots too.

UPDATE:
The FCC votes by 3-2 for internet regulation

  2. Thank you, OR. I'm not going far - I'm just elbow-deep in turkey and stuffing so it will be very blog-lite for a while. It's nice to cook feasts for the family again. I hope you & Mrs OR have a wonderful, peaceful Christmas :-)
