Recently I wrote about the problem of political ignorance: most voters don't know much about political issues, and most of the informed elite is also very closed-minded. Today we have an example of the worst of both worlds. Claire Perry MP has accused Guido Fawkes of 'sponsoring' the hacking of her website and of linking to it by putting a screenshot of her hacked site on his website

 

 

Given "the fact that she evidently doesn’t understand the difference between a hyperlink and a screenshot", as the Ministry of Truth blog puts it, isn't it a bit worrying (and revealing!) that Ms Perry is the driving force behind the government's plans to require people to opt-out of a block on pornography?
