UPDATE ON THE "BAVAGLIO" [GAG]

So now the totally out of date Levi has proposed that an additional clause be added to article 7 of the " gagging law" [ which would require all blog writers to register with the authorities and to pay a tax on their activity] stating that blogs which operate for "private" and not "collective" use would be exempt from this regulation. But blogging is by definition a collective activity! What's the point of bloody well writing one if it is not going to be read and commented upon? - Might as well keep a nice, secret diary, like the Victorians. "When you are in a hole", I would like to say to signor Levi, "stop digging": ie., admit it's an ill-conceived, ridiculous law in its entirety, scrap it and start again!

I wouldn't be surprised if they do scrap it but hopefully they don't start again!

You've got a point there, jmb!

I wonder how they would define "collective". I hope this legislation is kicked into touch.

Hi, jams. I wonder that, too. Even today's amendment doesn't say what they said it would!

hang on what IS this internet tax? is it not enough to tax a proportion of everyone's income? plus to charge VAT? what on earth is this tax on top???

I don't understand foreign countries sometimes...

Hi, kyles. I would be honoured to receive an invitation to your family blog from Joshie, who seems to me a very good cook. You can email me at:

Auguri and I'm so glad you like my blog.

Hi, Gleds. Agree - it is total madness and totally unjustified.
