Update on 'Comment-Gate'

Wow, I seemed to have stirred up things a wee bit!

Right, for the record-

I received and published the info in good faith. Genuine of fake? I'm sure it'll 'come out in the wash' at some point. Either way, it's still interesting stuff.

On a few other sites, some commenter's have mentioned some 'discrepancies' with the comment layout, I would like to clarify these, without adding fuel to the fire.

1) The comment has disappeared from the original thread and there is no evidence to show it was ever there, (IE- 'this comment has been removed by the author/administrator').

A blog owner/admin can delete ANY comment permanently and all trace of the comment will disappear.

2) The site the comment allegedly appeared on has a different comments style.

It takes a minute to change comment settings/layout on a blog.

3) The comment author name has no under-score.

On some sites they do, on others they don't. On my blog, comment author's names have no under-score.

So, there you go. My tuppence worth.

I'm fooked after a thirteen hour nightshift being on my feet and it's time for bed.

You did good, Rab. Forewarned is forearmed, eh. Thanks.

Fake or not you did right to publish it Rab. We all know the lengths both Labour (McBride, Draper & Co) and the UAF can go to and what they're capable of. It's good to get it out to the wider blogging world as well. As VotR says, thanks.

There is no way everyone can identify a fake so please don't beat yourself up.

Sleep tight.

This is all over the web now. Fake or not, it typifies NewLabour. No harm done to anything but Layber.

Fuck 'em.

wee joke said...

wee joke to cheer you up Rab

A London lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Glasgow policeman.

He thinks that he is smarter than the cop because he is a lawyer from LONDON and is certain that he has a better education then any Jock cop. He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the Glasgow cop's expense!!

Glasgow cop says, ' Licence and registration, please.'

London Lawyer says, 'What for?'

Glasgow cop says, 'Ye didnae come to a complete stop at the stop sign.'

London Lawyer says, 'I slowed down, and no one was coming.'

Glasgow cop says, 'Ye still didnae come to a complete stop. Licence and registration, please.'

London Lawyer says, 'What's the difference?'

Glasgow cop says, 'The difference is, ye huv'te to come to a complete stop, that's the law! Licence and registration, please!'

London Lawyer says, 'If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my licence and registration; and you give me the ticket. If not, you let me go and don't give me the ticket.'

Glasgow cop says, 'Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.'

The London Lawyer exits his vehicle.

The Glasgow cop takes out his baton and starts beating the f*ck out of the lawyer and says, 'Dae ye want me to stop, or just slow doon?'

It was a few weeks back now so I can't remember where but I read a post in a left-wing blog that attacked libertarians in a similar vein. Yes, I said post, it was not a comment.

The hard-line left are still out their, and libertarians are a threat to their authoritarian impulses, more importantly a threat to their desire to take money to pay for their schemes from those that earned it. Our quest for freedom cannot be smeared as racist, sexist or homophobic as that of the conservative Tories is.

Libertarianism is no threat to equality or to social justice, and it is very difficult for the left to claim it is. So the true face of the left is exposed - they want our money, they want to control our lives.

Thanks all.

Real or fake, it was still entertaining and gave us all a wee buzz during this 'quiet' spell!!

OT but see what the powers that be have in store for your shores, Rab.

It's not a pretty sight, depending on your point of view:

I mentioned too in a comment that comment layouts can easily be changed, Rab and this little shit has had a month to think through how he was going to play it all. Like yourself I have now been left in no doubt whatsoever that it is absolutely true.
