Lord Mandy - Lord of internet snoopers

Take one completely unelected Labour MP – give him a life peerage – send him off for a lovely holiday on a yacht with someone who owns a big record company and let him listen to him bleat and moan and belly-ache about all the millions he imagines he'd be raking in if only it wasn't for that wretched internet thing...

and the end result proves to be the promise of a whole new copyright Tsar with new draconian powers that countries with less regard for human rights and freedom than we are purported to have – would be in jealous awe of.

Well done Mandy, well done. Your part in the upcoming battles between the out-moded entertainment industry and it's relentless campaign to criminalise and alienate all it's audience and customers is duly noted.
