TROY TO BE UNMASKED?

There is a vote this Thursday in the European Parliament that seeks to regulate blogs and stop people blogging, like Troy, anonymously. Typically, it a centre-left politician who wants to interfere. They can’t abide the idea that people want to criticise the European integration movement. A British Conservative MEP rejects such regulation and points out that blogs have become the life blood of a vibrant democracy.

Apparently a European Commission report found that the EU was losing the battle for hearts and minds online. Big Brother is not happy! You MUST learn to love Big Brother! Expressing thoughts of your own, especially anonymously, is dangerous.

Troy supported the “Common Market” when it was put to the vote all those years ago. However I am vehemently opposed to the concept of a European Union run on continental socialist ideology by primarily unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats spending unaudited billions on their pet integration projects.

Troy fears he may have to end his days as a geriatric freedom fighter in the English Independence Army. Let’s hope it doesn’t have to come to that and instead I can enjoy my old age on the beach, in a deckchair, with a good book and my Daily Telegraph!

I kid you not dear Trixie!

Try these links - I didn't put them within my blog in case they cease to work over time.

That is shocking....I'm actually Gob Smacked!!!! (and that doesn't happen often!!)

There must be some kind of human rights law that stopping anonymous blogging would violate (There's one for just about everything else!!). The other thing that springs to mind is where would it stop....would that mean that authors would always have to reveal their true identity too??

Ps. It was your captions on DJ's blog that did it...anyone who comes close to making me spit tea on my keyboard has got to have a blog worth following :-)

Hi Troy

Thank you for visiting my blog.
I can see you have unearthed something that will not make we bloggers very unhappy. I know I would not blog in my real name - and I'm sure there are many that feel the same. Awful!

Nice to meet you, BTW :-)

I speak Spanish, French, Italian and (in a way) Latin. I have met some of these "eurocrat" people before. Not even sure if they belong to Europe as they seem a race apart. Scary bunch. Very. So I agree with 100%. You couldn't have put it better!

Thanks for your comments in support. I guess even if I am sitting in my deckchair I can still "fight them on the beaches". We must never surrender - one day the fight back will begin!

"They" should try blogging themselves - "they" obviously have nothing better to do but spoil everyone's fun and enjoyment.

Here, here, here. Why don't you stand for the gravy train, Troy? Those Brussells wallahs could do with a bit of good old-fashioned common sense! And failing that, the application of a stout brogue to their backsides!

NO WAY. My heart sank as I read that. Holy cow, it would change everything. I'm a military wife with children. I make it a point NOT to give details out that would bring my family harm.

oh, and I crept over here from Chick Pea's because of your name. I'm in East Anglia as well-- but you'll know that soon enough if this happens.
