Boris Johnson caught in attack on bloggers by Russian oligarch
21.09.07 by Buffalo Bill
An extraordinary moment in the blogosphere, which I have to report for no other reason than to add this site to the list of bloggers raising the alarm. Those of you who have been following this site for the last 2 years will remember that Craig Murray has been in trouble with the authorities before. Towards the end of 2005, he was threatened with legal action for speaking out about human rights abuses in the former Soviet Union.
He is in trouble once again for speaking out about abuse of power. His web-site has been taken down, a bunch of bloggers who had reported on, and linked to, his post have been threatened with legal action, and an entire web-hoster has been forced off the internet. Amongst those sites hosted is Boris Johnson’s. It’s an ill wind that blows no one good, you might think. Well, that’s really not the attitude to take. What about the good old British sense of fair-play, sticking up the under dog, giving a fella a decent chance, eh?
