Could it be? Could social media actually be affecting the government’s undemocratic plans for its Digital Economy Bill?
UK Labour MP Austin Mitchell has had a change of heart on the dread Digital Economy Bill and has produced an early day motion asking to have all 24,000+ words of it subjected to scrutiny and debate, rather than being hidden away in the undemocratic, secretive “wash-up” process: “That this House believes that the Digital Economy Bill [Lords] is too important to be taken further in the last days of a dying Parliament; and considers that a bill with so many repercussions for consumers, civil liberties, freedom of information and access to the internet should be debated and properly scrutinised at length and in detail, with a full opportunity for public discussion and representation in a new Parliament after the general election and not rushed through in the few days that remain in this Parliament.” Write to your MP and support the motion!
