Smoking Ban, the curious case of the missing news item

There has been a deal of interest in a post that I had put up earlier this month on the Bill to Amend the Smoking Ban.

There had earlier in the day been a number of referrals from the Henry Porter blog, specifically from one of his news items, which is now…. not quite missing, but it has to be entered manually, as the URL redirects (me at least) to the main page.

It was interesting to note, that this subtle change occurred only after a number of visits to my blog from:

Houses Of Parliament ( Houses Of Parliament
No referring link

Is there any connection? Are the party machines at work to try and suppress this Bill to Amend the Smoking Ban?

Remember Clegg has already made it clear in his great repeal online playground that the Smoking Ban is not one he is willing to entertain, despite it being in the top ten as requested by the people.

I think we may be watching Nudge at Work…

    All I get is a “bandwidth exceeded” message now.

    • At 08:16 I also received the ‘Bandwidth Exceeded’ message.

      I spoke last night with the lady who says she runs the website for Henry Porter, and we decided that there appeared to be a problem with the DNS.

      The Top Level Domain ( did not resolve with stubs down to the Root Domain (, that for some reason it was now doing it the other way around and that all Root Domain requests (without the www) were resolving to the TLD home page.

      She promised to hand it to the tech guys this morning to check the logs.
