Anyway it carries a story which explains why my blog entry displaying the fabulous Ms Nick Griffin portrait didn't show the picture for a few days.
The Register reports: (theregister.co.uk/2009/05/27/bnp_ddos_diddums/) (haha)
"A supposedly massive denial of service attack against the British National Party website has been exposed as a gross exaggeration.
The assault, which began on Friday, was described by the party in an email appeal for funds as the "largest cyber attack in recorded history" and comparable only to a 2001 assault against Microsoft*. Nick Griffin, leader of the controversial far-right political party, asked the party's supporters to stump up the £5,000 urgently needed to purchase hardware and servers supposedly needed to keep the site up and running.
Griffin's email appeal claims that the assault came from "eastern Europe and Russia" and that Clear Channel, a firm supplying Euro election billboard advertising services to the BNP, is also under attack and contemplating legal action.
However, Clear Channel, after checking with its US-based techies, said that it was not under any kind of cyber-attack, much less on the phone to its lawyers.
"To confirm - we have had no attack and we have filed no lawsuits," a spokeswoman told El Reg. "The BNP booked a small poster campaign in the run up to the European Elections."
More "political correctness gone mad" no doubt...
Bless them. I almost feel sorry for them, but then I wonder why I should feel sorry for racists/Nazis whose leading voices love Hitler, think "Churchill was a fucking cunt", and supported Italian fascists at a neo-nutter meeting in Milan recently.
Then I think that my Grandad fought in the second world war to defeat fascism, in Italy, (8th Army, specifically landing near Ancona, bombed and ablaze at the time from Nazi shelling), that my Mum's name was inspired by his time in Italy (apparently), then Ms Nick Griffin can come round and tell me and my mum why her Dad did the wrong thing fighting for the British Army, defeating fascism. He was just a "fucking cunt" too was he?
Sorry for the language.
It makes me [---] angry.
