Neo-Labour's Piracy

Not talking about the organised theft of Iraq's oil, but in typical do-as-we-say-not-as-we-do style, Brown's own website pirates code from elsewhere;

While the British government puts huge amounts of pressure on ISPs to clamp down on file-sharers, it is doing some pirating of its very own. It seems that Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s own website is in serious breach of copyright, as it is based on a ripped-off Wordpress theme.

Ooops. Still, it is not the first time a cut-and-paste job has got them into trouble; remember the dodgy dossier - a uncredited ripp-off from a thesis by an American student.

I hope this means that they issue Brown with the first of his three strikes on the way to cutting off his broadband access?
