Best site I came across this on:
I had to activate adult content to get access to http://www.saynoto0870.com on Orange. I can't be too sure but it looks as if there was a little conflict of interest there, right?

Apparently the BBC said so: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7998182.stm
I'd still like to see what the actual DfT guidance said.
Is that they can often detract from the viewpoints expressed by the staff journalists and undermine their editorial line.
I suspect that this more nuanced treatment of the state of Symbian is rather more realistic than el Reg's normal outlook on it.
I'd happily not pay £11 a month for voice service on my landline except for the fact that I'd rather have a number where people can call me from anywhere in the world without having to pay an arm and a leg.
And yes, it does appear that my DSL provider will connect my line without voice service, although I have to check this with them.
"Oh no, here's a golden opportunity to diss Phorm, but it means showing Wikipedia in a good light. Should we run it or not?"
Ouch, might miss a chance to show Phorm up for the charlatans they are, but ouch, might make Wikipedia look reasonable.
Still, in the end we know what the bigger problem is.
If traffic goes at 20mph on back roads, it's actually not going to add a lot of time to journeys because, like the M25 variable speed limits, it'll mean that queues at junctions form slightly more slowly and thus congestion is reduced. It'll also make it easier to pass parked cars or obstacles without stopping completely, which will add up.
If it's 20mph on through routes, that's just silly and antagonistic, of course.
