But When He Does It It's Cuddly

The Heathen Chinee have utilised their insidious news agency, Xinhua, in drawing some specious parallels between the attempts by Daveybloke and his Cuddly Conservatives to restore order, help the police, give British youth a purpose in life, pander to the string-'em-up brigade, etc., and the obviously quite different attempts by the Heathen Chinee to stamp out legitimate dissent and hinder free speech. Daveybloke, who has done a fair amount of burbling about the potentially wondrous potential of social media in potentising the wonderosity of his Big Society thingy, has now ordered some of his little men to investigate the possibilities of turning the social media off whenever the Metropolitan Firearms and Headbangers' Club finds it expedient to do so. The Heathen Chinee have noted this latest swerve with approval, but were unable to resist a snide little dig at "western leaders [who], on the one hand, tend to indiscriminately accuse other nations of monitoring, but on the other take for granted their steps to monitor and control the internet." If one did not know better, one might almost believe that the Heathen Chinee were implying that Daveybloke, the Cuddly Conservative, who believes in collective punishment for the proles and second chances for scumbag press editors, is displaying behaviour which might be construed as hypocritical.
