Anonymous hacks UK MP Peter Hain

Peter Hain, the political activist who dug up the Lords cricket pitch in an attempt to intimidate the cricket authorities into not playing cricket with the apartheid South Africa, got hacked by the Anonymous political activist collective – and he doesn’t like it.

Peter Hain gets hacked – or how to deface a two-face

It’s intimidation he said, adding, “I have had these attacks for 40 years, mostly from racists and fascists.” He’s got a point. Firstly it is intimidation, because the collective has threatened to unleash a film (V for Vendetta) on him. And secondly he’s right about fascists and racists using intimidation. Here’s another recent fascist (and racist) example:

You should be aware that there is a legal basis in the UK — the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act — which would allow us to take action to arrest Mr. Assange in the current premises of the embassy… We sincerely hope that we do not reach that point, but if you are not capable of resolving this matter of Mr Assange’s presence in your premises, this is an open option for us.

That is also intimidation. It says, “if you don’t do what we want, we can use force to come and get what we want.”

Hypocrisy, thy name is Hain (and Hague and Cameron and Clegg – otherwise known as the UK parliamentary collective).

    Normally your observations are a little bit more cohesive than this. How can they (Anon) unleash a film on an individual? Your quote is from the current Government yet you imply that Hain had something to do with it as you label him a hypocrite in reference to the quote I presume.

    I wasn’t aware that Hain has shown the same sentiments in regard to the Assange situation. I would be interested to see any online references to this. And I fail to see the reference to racism in the quote that you have used. Racism is commonly thought of as a hatred or intolerance of another race yet I see no mention of this in the quote.
