I’ve just had an email from the Number 10 propaganda department telling me about all the wonderful things our Prime Minister has been doing. One of the things in it was a link to an “EU Summit minisite”.
I clicked on the link to see what it was all about and it came up with the address http://eusummit.govblogs.co.uk. A government blogs website? Looks interesting. So what’s at http://www.govblogs.co.uk? A 123-reg holding page. 123-reg? Since when has the British government used 123-reg for their websites? Suspicious (out of character I know), I popped onto a whois website to check it out. The domain is registered to a Simon Dickson, address unknown because he’s apparently a “non-trading private individual”. Strange, because this website is being promoted as a government website and it has the headers and footers of the Prime Minister’s website.
So who is Simon Dickson? I’ve found a reference to a Simon Dickson who happens to be a Liebour Party donor. Co-incidence? It’s not as if they haven’t got form for this sort of thing, after all.
The surname is “Dickson”, not “Dixon”.
Simon Dickson says, in the comments, he has no links to Liebour.
