COCKELL CENSORS THE HORNET

BLOCKED SCREEN
There is something pathetic about Pooter ordering the RBK&C IT Department to block The Hornet.
Pathetic because it just encourages the subjects of his censorship to visit the site though other channels. But beyond all that is the patronising way he insults the intelligence of his colleagues. 
Does he not think they have a right to read one of the fastest growing blogs in K&C?

Councillors already find all negative references to Cockell deleted from the weekly press distribution digest: now they are blocked from an important source of residents' views.
Let us hope that the Leader of the Minority Group will raise the matter at the next Council meeting. And let us also hope that she will get all party support because censorship crosses political boundaries.

What is particularly sickening about the affair is this. Cockell's family fled Germany before the war to escape persecution. If anyone should value freedom of expression it should be him.

  2. Stories of the Town Hall censoring the Hornet persist on this blog. It is hard to believe in this day and age, and in a democracy, that such practices are possible by democratically elected representatives. Something has gone badly wrong

  3. It is all part of the house that Cllr Cockell built. Sad that the pathetic Tory Councillors cannot see the man for what he is and send him packing

  4. The picture of the blocked screen is proof positive. Has this been brought to the notice of the local and National Press?

  5. Cockell's family are Jewish: they left Germany through persecution. He should not be allowing censorship...the very thing that allowed the monster Hitler to what he did to te Jewish people.
    Shame on you Cockell

  7. A long time ago may be Sir Merrick had good intentions but like most politicians (not all though) has proved to be an utter failure.

  8. I consider the actions by Sir Merrick as none other than misguided and utterly pathetic. If someone wishes to read the Hornet they will do one way or another. Sir Merrick is clearly insecure and has a complex after all the Hornet if pretty harmless.

  9. or is it that the councils security software that stops users accessing the National lottery web site and various search engines etc needs a little re-tweeking !

  10. One hesitates to disagree with The Dame, but have to say that many aspects of Pooter are appalling. The attempt to censor The Dame is proof positive that he and his cronies fear The Hornet. They are right to do so. She is spoken of with respect throughout the Rotten Borough. It's more than can be said for Pooter.

  14. An issue with the "net nanny" software and that is it - not the fault of Sir Merrick


    if you disagree with me please offer PROOF that he is responsible

    1. Why not you offer proof he is not responsible seeing as you are such a buddy of Pooter

    2. Hornet is making the claim

      Delete
    3. Pooter is the so called leader and person responsible for all aspects of the councils operation.

  16. I think, on this occasion, what's being blocked by the council's over zealous web nanny software is only the banner for some reason (?). Seems pretty harmless. There was a period of time when council PCs were prevented from accessing posters' comments but it doesn't seem to be the case now.

    Looks less of a claim and more a statement of fact judging from the screen shot she has published.
    Take a look or get you to Specsavers!

    1. please tell me how you can read such a blurred image - please retype the text that cannot be read from this web site and tell me where it says that my good friend Merrick is responsible?

  18. Click on the image and then put your glasses on and read...."COMMENT BLOCKED BY YOUR ORGANISATION"

    ReplyDelete
  19. "Comment Blocked By Your Organisation"

    And who leads the organisation?

    Cllr Cockell

    Is there any need or possibility to spell things out more clearly? This is an insecure and failed human being who is in a position to abuse power and exercises censorship in a democracy. And the democratic check and balance, his fellow Conservative Councillors, is in a deep and collective coma and therefore incapable of exercising its duty to remove him

  20. The poor spelling of 14:46 gives the key to it authorship. Someone familiar with mental health problems.

  21. Cllr Palmer @14:46....what does Your Paranoid mean? Some punk rock group? Perhaps you might mean You're Paranoid. Thank Goodness your boss, Pooter, never put you on the Education Committee!

  22. 08.45 you cannot keep a "paranoid" down.......

  23. All Councils have external net management software principally designed to stop Council Officers wasting time reading The Sun, playing online games or watching porn etc on the Council's time.

    In order for this allegation by the Dame to have any real legs, in terms of pinning the blame on Cockell and showing unacceptable censorship at work in RBKC, then there would need to be some proof that this blocking of The Hornet is not just a part of that process.

      Well,what a pity the net management had not the capacity to stop Cllr Cockell's great friend and ally, ex Cllr Barry Phelps sending out obscene images of very young boys to his friends and other councillors on the RBKC server. Care to answer that?

      Delete
    2. Perhaps the current over zealous application of the net management software is as a direct result of ex Cllr Phelps' misuse of Council IT.

      There, that's an answer for you.

    3. Had no idea the Dame sent out porn!!!!

  24. 15.44 you can attempt to ratioanlise anything that you like. But free speech in a democratic system is the cornerstone of democracy. And the Hornet is a dedicated blog whose purpose is to expose wrongdoing in the corrupted administration of K&C which is the result of a fourteen year dictatorship by one man.

    Every time the Hornet exposes wrongdoing by Cll Cockell then he, you and others are perfectly free to reply with a contrary point of view and to make corrections if these are in order.

    It is not in order to block the website
