What You Can Get Away With » Your mission, should you choose to accept it…

…is to find a candidate in the General Election with a website worse than this.

Of course, it could be argued that the site reflects the candidate – many people find Phil Woolas to be particularly offensive, so his having a website that feels like a calculated and co-ordinated offensive against your eyes is pretty appropriate. It’s nothing compared to what children detained in Yarl’s Wood have gone through thanks to his Government’s policies, though it’s nice for him to try and spread the suffering around.

And want a wonderful example of New Labour’s approach to criticism? At the bottom of the page there’s a line of text that reads “Problems with the web site? Click here to contact the webmaster” – which you can’t click on.

Oh, and contrary to Woolas’ claims (a Labour Immigration Minister being inaccurate with the facts? Surely not!) voting Lib Dem in his Oldham East and Saddleworth constituency doesn’t mean you get the Tories – it means you improve the chances of Elwyn Watkins getting the 5% swing he needs to unseat Woolas.

  1. Not quite as damaging to the eye (though one comes close), but the ‘blogs’ of Jeremy Hunt and Nadine Dorries warrant a mention.

    Nadine Dorries’ ‘blog’ has a comment policy but hasn’t accepted comments for a very long time now. (She’s closed them for extended periods twice now, both times because she had asserted something that was not entirely accurate and couldn’t hack the resulting ‘abuse’ (see: criticism).

    Jeremy Hunt doesn’t have an archive, and instead chucks all past posts (and any submitted comments) into the bin…

    … and he wants to be Minister for Teh Internets!

  2. Actually I quite like it – and that link works when I try it.
