Scare Mandelson into dropping net laws with your freakiest face
You might be aware of Peter ‘Lord’ Mandelson’s utterly dickish plans for kicking filesharers off the internet after they’ve been caught out three times. Basically, the scheme has got more stinking holes in it than Rab C Nesbitt’s string vest and now you can look Lord Peter in the eye and tell him what exactly you think about his cack-headed idea.
