Anybody know what happened to the blog? It made some interesting reading now and again.

But it appears to have vanished without a trace

Did the government finally send a search and destroy death squad to his house or something? As there was no bye bye post at all.

His domain registration breached the requirements of his ISP so they took it down i.e. he didn't provide the correct details.

He was registered to the cellars of the Houses of Parliament.

And he's been banned from facebook (again).

Great stuff. Just reading it for the first time.

It must be a bit like discovering The Beatles!

There are some great bloggers out there. A lot of them much more credible than the MSM.

OH stood for MP in the last election in Cambridge ion his V for Vendetta mask :ph34r:.

I'm going to reprint one of his posts in full, as I think it is so fascinating and deserves a wider audience.

I've thought over exactly the same thing, and have come up with exactly the same solution. Neither democracy nor revolution will change the state. So I'll change myself, starve the state of at least one serf, and let my example spread.

(It's an approach taken by the Taoists, faced with the monolithic might and bureaucracy of Old China. They neither opposed the state nor obeyed it. They just melted down into utmost simplicity and lived happily. I'm paraphrasing, but one of their key nuggets of wisdom was that "a man who has lived well, leaves no trace".)

Yes very interesting post. Rather than demo's and nailing bankers to London Bridge, change your behaviour, re-organise and slowly starve the parasites.

My only problem with his approach is that if everyone started doing it, the state would find a way of making it impossible - e.g. introduce more unavoidable regressive taxes/insurance requirements or just plain outlaw home grown food as it appears the US is trying to do.

Edited to add: And I don't see why, even if we follow his path of quiet revolution, we cannot also use all the piano wire and lamp posts we can get our hands on. :P
