Sock-puppeting Tory sods

Grant Shapps is the same MP who sought to explain a sock-puppeting event involving his YouTube account with a claim that his account was 'hacked' using an "all too guessable" password; '1234'

Thanks, Stan

"LOL, I'm goin' carol singing with that and a 6 pack"

If El Reg will indulge me, the perfect opportunity to do so will be on the 20th (the full version is already on or song sheet):


You may want to ditch the six-pack, though. We're planning pints for afters.

Misplacing it twice,

Some details for you

The images in question appear to have been coaxed out of Quah a year or so ago in a baiting exercise after he p'ed off a couple of fellow university forum members. Details of the successful baiting - including these images - were apparently then shared in that forum. When it came to light that he was standing as a wowser about a year later... well, the rest is history, but it should be noted that a true Machiavellian would have released them closer to the election, thereby giving Families First less time to recover.

The blogger who has published the log of the baiting exchange (also a member of that same forum) has promised; "more photos of the disgraced Mr Quah that prove the validity of the third picture he is so desperately protesting."

And if you think things look bad for Mr Quah now...

The relevant chat log has not been confirmed as genuine at this stage, but they and the chatter from oldbies in the relevant forum seem to suggest that Quah was at the time under the impression that he was sending pictures of his penis to girls under the age of consent.

Fasthosts forums gone, blog down...

They appeared to have retreated way waaaay back into their shell lately. Not the most enlightened response to ongoing customer service and communication problems.
