The Labour party politicians and apologists in the mainstream media may be trying their best to ridicule David Davis' principled stand on liberties and freedoms, which are being betrayed by this authoritarian, yet technologically inept Government, but their online internet fellow travellers, are having rather less success.
One of the "star" Labour party bloggers, Luke Akehurst, a HacKney Labour Party apparatchik, who was invited by the BBC to "live blog" the Local Election night results, has come up with the odious idea of manipulating a victim of terrorism, to be used as a proxy sacrificial stalking horse candidate against David Davis, without risking the electoral drubbing and lost deposit, which an official Labour party candidate would likely get.
In true NuLabour political commissar mode, he refuses to acknowledge the damage he has done to his own and his party's reputation, and gets more obdurate, even though former Labour supporters are expressing their disgust at such morally repulsive political manipulation, and are threatening never to vote Labour again.
What should really worry the NuLabour NuMedia spin doctors is this new PledgeBank pledge, currently signed by some extremely internet savvy online campaigners:
"I will Help David Davis win re-election by doing anything i can but only if 100 other people will do the same."
