Congratulations to Glen. I've forwarded it to Andrew Marr and Nick Higham at the BBC and to various others, including the Community Media Association list (read by lots of grassroots media organisations). Not only is it scandalous, it also shows how out of the touch the government is with the central role of the internet in today's politics. Andrew Marr said on Newsnight the other night that he had never known the opinion of MPs and the public to be so far apart - 'either they know something we don't,' he said, 'or parliament is in for a terrible shock'. I'd place my money on the latter, especially after this! Democracy in the electronic age means 'one person, one opinion', not one person one vote - leaders who try and act like Churchill are well wide of the mark.
