Censorship: Telegraph jimmying the comments

On Norman Tebbit’s blog today, (“Political correctness created the silence that allowed Rotherham“) I wrote a comment, which received top billing.  I then found that the ordering of the comments had been jimmied, such that those with a lower score were above mine, even though the sort order was by “best”.

Finally, I returned to the comments to find that my comment had been completely removed, without even so much as a placeholder to mark the spot.

Now, I don’t care whether or not my comment is top or not – all I care about is that the points I made are heard / read, which is why I write the damned things, in the first place.

So who is responsible for messing with the comments?

And why was my comment removed?

Here is what I wrote – you can judge for yourself:

Even now, the media refuses to report on the ethnicity and religion of the man who beheaded the octogenarian in Edmonton. We can all guess the truth, so glossing over it will only inflame passions further.

Politicians who continue to push multiculturalism and diversity over the interests of the locals are culpable and need to be purged from Westminster  – along with the politically ‘correct’ civil servants that they have installed within the system.

Vote the whole rotten lot out.

  1. I think if you’d written “who ALLEGEDLY beheaded the octogenarian in Edmonton” you might have got away with it. Sub judice.

    • Ah, true, Frank – that might account for the comment being removed. But why remove it without leaving a placemarker (e.g., “comment removed”) and why demote it first?

      I’ve seen this happen to the comments of others, too.
