Here we go again – another Government Internet blunder

Let’s get this straight – sexual offences are abhorrent; I am in no way a defender of people who have committed sex crimes.

What a load of Ed Balls

Ed Balls, the Secretary of State for Education in the UK, wants “cyberbullying” of teachers to be a disciplinary offence.

The Budget News doesn’t make good reading

Government shows it doesn’t understand Internet shopping

Hundreds of thousands of Internet shoppers are disappointed this week because Tesco has had to take down its online house sales section.
