Oh yeah....they have no problem collecting data on us, but they want to sensor news about them [gov.]
Hmmm, what's wrong with this picture?????
The Conservatives have attempted to hide 10 years of speeches from the internet, it has emerged. The speeches, news stories, press releases and blogs, which date back to 2000 until the party came to power in May 2010, have been hidden from public view on the Conservative Party website.
They have also removed the record of their past speeches from internet search engines, including Google, according to Computer Weekly. It means those using the search engine to try to find the speeches on the Conservative Party website would simply get no results.
The removal of such a large collection of speeches will fuel speculation the Tories are attempting to make it difficult for people to hold them to account to pledges made ahead of the 2010 election with the 2015 vote looming. In addition the archive of information has been erased from the Internet Archive, which is the public record of the internet.
The specialist computer magazine explained that the Tories had used something called a robot blocker to remove the speeches, which effectively hides speeches in a "secretive corner of the internet like those that shelter the military (and) secret services".
What could they possibly be so afraid of?
