Watching the BBC Parliament channel can sometimes be instructive.
For example, I just saw a collection of commercial shysters presuming that they had the right to regulate my speech.
One in particular(I only don't publish his name because I can't remember - seen one shyster you've seen them all) tried to scare the old fuddy-duddy politicians on the select committee by lying about the effects of publishing on the web; apparently it's the end of the world if you do.

Imagine their consternation at the thought of reputations destroyed at a stroke of a key, and how sincerely they convince themselves that 'something must be done'.

A lesson in how a nasty little lawyer can manipulate government into making a nice little legal earner for him and his crummy friends.
