Bloggers must stand together.

Shooting the messenger" is a metaphoric phrase used to describe the act of lashing out at the (blameless) bearer of bad news.

In modern usage, the expression still refers to any kind of punishment meted out to the person bringing bad news, but has taken on an ironic dimension as well. Nevertheless "it is still worth a man's neck to disturb an emperor's image. Nowadays the axe falls more subtly and the execution may be postponed, but sooner or later it comes".

Bloggers are the new messengers and the powers that be do not like it one little bit.Like any repressive Police state free speech is restricted and people start disappearing albeit just from the blogosphere (for the time being).

The blogger Ollie Cromwell was the first to get the early morning "knock on the door" by the local stasi for upsetting the local ACPO piggy and exposing corruption within his local (Bexley) council.
Now the blog Dock Green has been "removed".For those that do not know Dock Green was a blog which compiled stories from the press about Police incompetence .
What have these two things have in common ?Well it appears that ACPO (Limited Company) has decided to take the blogosphere for their own and eliminate any dissenting voices.Ollie gave his persecutors a bloody nose but I fear the blog author of Dock Green may not be quite so lucky as his blog has disappeared without trace.
ACPO and local corrupt politicians have made a big mistake by taking on bloggers and attempting to restrict free speech on the blogosphere.For every blog shut down or blogger persecuted there will be 100s ready to take their place in a "I am spartacus" manner.
Who would have thought that in the 21st Century Britons would be fighting to remain free in thought and speech against an onslaught from our own traitorous countrymen.

Bloggers need to unite and support each other so that everyone can be free to express opinions and thoughts unhindered and uncensored.The alternative is a nightmare scenario of repression and opression not seen since the fall of East Germany.
We are all stronger standing together-thats when we all win.
