Oh my Goodness me! You’re saying that they’re running the country??!?

Here is a scan of a letter from The Minister for Digital Britain to another MP that has appeared on the internet:

Political FAIL

Can you spot the inconsistency between the stated facts in the letter and reality?

Now, as it turns out I’m not against crackdowns on copyright theft and illegal file-sharing, and the bit of the DEBill that I had issues with has been dropped (Clause 43), but I am still HORRIFIED that the people running the damn thing are so patently ignorant of the subject matter!

I mean, forget that they don’t even realise how utterly absurd it is to think that there are economically viable and yet also provable and reliable ways to stop file-sharing in the first place, and reflect for a moment on how absurd it is for us to have a “Minister for Digital Britain” who either does not know what an IP Address actually is, or perhaps even more unforgivable does not proof-read his outgoing mail.

I despair…
