FOR THE ATTENTION OF:
Mark Hendrick MP
Dear Mark Hendrick,
In regards to your application for my vote for you during the upcoming election received today I am sorry to inform you that your request will be denied.
This is due to your voting record as reported by the public whip which suggests you do not vote in accordance with the interests of your constituents.
The following records have been the most influential in denying your application:
How Mark Hendrick voted on key issues since 2001:
• Voted very strongly for the Iraq war.
- Suggests a disregard for the opinion of the British public. Ignoring the largest political demonstration Britain has ever seen and the biggest taking to the streets since VE Day
• Voted very strongly against an investigation into the Iraq war.
- Its been a few years now, found those weapons of mass destruction yet?
• Voted very strongly for Labour's anti-terrorism laws.
- Suggests a disregard for the preservation of human rights, this legislation was not required to deal with the IRA, why is it required now?
• Voted very strongly for introducing ID cards.
- Willing to waste huge amounts of taxpayer money in return for achieving none of the stated benefits while further eroding civil liberties and vastly increasing constituents risk of suffering ID fraud.
Further to this you have also been recorded as voting for the Digital Economy Bill on the 8th of April 2010.
- This bill makes it possible to remove an entire households ability to participate in significant areas of modern society without reliable proof or protections. It is extremely ill thought out and has not received adequate debate. Its passing is a shocking insult to those who believe in the democratic process.
I am sorry but I cannot in good conscience offer you my vote.
In the last two weeks two people I know have each suffered mechanical hard drive failures.
One lost three years of work, the other lost irreplaceable family pictures and a significant media investment.
So given that any hard drive could fail at any moment, ask yourself these questions.
1 - What is the value to you of the data on your hard drive, either at home or at work in monetary or emotional terms?
2 - Do you have a back-up? Is it recent? Do you understand how it works and the limitations inherent to it?
3 - If you do have a back-up have you checked to make sure it works in the way you think it does?
4 - Do the answers to any of the previous questions make you feel uncomfortable?
The poor chap who lost 3 years of work was convinced his worked was being backed up to a central server. It turned out that in theory it was, although sadly in practice this did not cover the actual folder where he actually saved his data to.
Current estimates are that:
There is a 60%-70% chance of further posts.
There is a 90%-97.45% chance of those posts being friends only.
A light chance of splattered ranting in the morning with further outbreaks after about lunchtime.
Outlook: Slippery when wet.
If you see this number anywhere:
09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0
Don't look at it, in fact. Help the MPAA to protect their AACS protection key by passing the entirety of this warning to as many people as you can.
