Recently I wrote about the problem of political ignorance [3]: 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 [4] 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 [5]



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 [9], isn't it a bit worrying (and revealing!) that Ms Perry is the driving force [10] behind the government's plans to require people to opt-out of a block on pornography?
